All very true, Hugh - it was a risk that paid off, rather than an obviously right course of action, I guess. It would be nice to be able to take those risks without having to find side-doors is all, I suppose. Especially as it would have cost me at least the same amount just to send the desk :/

All in all - still a happy X32 owner :)

LOL but I'd probably have lost or broken at least six of them by now.

A couple of contact/advice attempts went cold but EMS in Southend were able to source a PSU and send it out to me for about £100 which was worth the punt given the cost/risks of trying to get the unit to a service centre from here (Hebrides).

So it arrived yesterday and it seems to have worked a treat. Haven't taken the desk out yet, but audio is back, phantom is back, noises are gone.

So thanks to EMS for being so responsive and Hugh for (another) correct diagnosis!

Mixed feelings for Behringer who's only help was to steer me to the service centres, but fair play to them for managing to design a budget desk which is actually reasonably repairable. Hoping it's got plenty more life ahead of it now!

Phew, what a relief, well done and well done EMS
