We all thought it was only the septics who are oblivious to irony ....

The handful of chevins in my inventory has performed flawlessly apart from a
defective fan and fan controller in an A6000.. Oh.. The amp *did* overheat
and shut down, but no damage was done.. New fans and a FET and it was
working fine again..

Fwiw: I have had several amps from respected manufacturers ( Crown among
others ) blow up right out of the box.. Not even during bench testing..
