most companies have never been big on giving out schematics of products that they even do not make anymore. Sometimes they sell them to people that are in a repair biz but its not common practice just to hand out schematics to any joe on the street that walks up and asks about them. Also not sure why your surprised that no one there worked on those lines to have first hand exp on them and they do not service them so they would not even have 2nd hand exp on them. The company was sold to aamp years ago and went from a small company to a VERY large one. It would be nearly impossible for them to keep doing like they did with aamp in charge.

Schematics are highly classified, there is no way they would share them with you. Then you have to understand that they have new owners and they usually don't keep documents for the old stuff, what for when they will be making new products to worry about.

Aleks could repair your RT66 for a flat fee and am sure he can do whatever you want with it (make it two amps instead of one).

I have no comments on the new PG...to me it looks cheap compared to the good ole MS/MPS/ZPA/M amplifiers that were made in the USA.

After I spoke with the head of sales I believe at SBN a few years ago, I quickly learned the qualities that made PG so desirable early on, are long gone. Sure the new equipment is nice, but when absolute maximum profits are the only goal, (with the tone of dealers trying to gouge the most that they can out of customers), I cannot support new PG. So my love for PG stopped with the Xenon line.

service is not great, out sourcing repairs, warranty is a joke ton of failing higher end products
it really sad to see pg go down the corporate road but its all about money now
its been said before no online sales seen a lot of dealer drop or lose pg im thinking its because of returns and problems and the store is on the hook.
I think the small sd amp will be my last pg purchase(only bought because it was dirt cheap $88cnd plus gst) ever the brand is Dead IMO

Our dear friend Altser has passed away recently, RIP. I believe AAMP has ZED (Stephen) as their repair center now.
