Second opinion] I've got a pair of yamaha S08 synths. One bought as a donor, but both seem to have a bad output channel and generally pretty low output with occasional distortion on one or both channels. Am I losing an amp board? Your thoughts and direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your S08? What have you tried so far?

Problem has gotten gradually gotten worse over about a month's time. Thought it was my mixer channel(s) at first. They're good. Cleaned the output trs holes and changed cables but still the same.
