    Hi all. got a problem with my well loved studiomaster vision 8 mixer amp.
    its all working ok, But the sound output from the unit is very low. I have to push all the volume sliders up to get any volume , But the peak lights come on
    have sent line in to the amps from a mixer & cd player and the output is ok, I have sent line out from the studiomaster to another amp & that seems ok
    so why am I not getting the correct out put from the studiomaster
    Its a studiomaster vision 8 mixer amp simular to the 708,
    anyone got any clues
    regards jt

    Don't know this unit at all. But, some common things to check on mixer/amps.
    Dirty insert jacks between the main outs and power amp(s).
    Any switches for routing outputs to power amp(s).
