Just for reference, the Rythmik Audio HX300 servo amp has been discontinued.

The HX310 is the replacement being built for production.  No time frame has been posted.

For the 4x8in servo sub towers I took to CAF 2023 with the Magnepan MG10/QR's, it was a pair of original HX300-8OB servo amps I had on loan from Brian.  Now run them with A370XLR3's with the dspNexus 2x8 with some EQ to replicate the HX300-8OB operation.

Well, my Rythmik L12 is off to Texas to be repaired. I did my best to disconnect that amp, but the clips are impossible to get off the sub and there’s hardly any room to maneuver in the cabinet. So the whole thing needs to go back.

Tweaking my back was a reminder why I don’t want to deal with difficult to lift/carry components. Brian at  Rythmik has been on top of things and pleasant to deal with.

The sub was delivered by UPS this afternoon and everything looks to be in excellent condition. Communication with Brian at Rythmik was very good and the repair turnaround was very quick. There was an extra day delay with UPS and I was sent an email regarding that. I did ask Brian what the issue was and 2 electrolytic caps had gone bad and were replaced.

Nick, I'm afraid that kind of failure comes under the "Shit just happens, what the hell."
category. Hopefully no more problems. 👍
