My AD30H - when was it made?

Post by Bensnake » Fri Mar 20, 2015 8:17 pm

I thought this model was replaced back in the early 00's. Due to the serial no. it seems like it was made in '04. What say you?

Does indeed look like Feb '04. Don't know, maybe they did a few more single channel ones specially later on. Or maybe it is a composite of parts? Have you opened it (without prodding around inside!) to see if it has a PCB or is purely hand wired?

I haven't got it yet though I assume it's PCB. The seller didn't mention and I didn't ask.

I have an ad30 R which is the single channel combo and its a 2004 as well. I believe 04 was the last of the single channel ad30. Around 1500 in total made from what I've seen.
This would all coincide with the ad15s too. There last year was 2004 about 1500 made.
