    HELP!! Symphony II to Symphony II+ Strange Radio Problem

    Somone in the USA ran a test and found the coding did not alter equalisation on the old Symphony II it just switched the Bose logo on. The test also revealed the flat equalisation needed for the Bose amps was achived by grounding the ‘Bose’ pin (labled GA on the Symphony II). If the GA...

    I.C.E. upgrade A3

    Can I tap CD changer outlet for switched radio power supply?
