    I give up... how do you get the PAS front panel off? Empty Removal of Faceplate

    Loosen the SET Screw on the Selector Control Knob.
    Remove the NUTs holding the controls to the faceplate.

    The Faceplate should now "fall off"

    That is if you are not joking!!

    He's joking.

    It's for sale on ebay.  Now there's a restoration challenge.  Looks like it went a few rounds with Rocky Balboa.

    that's what you get when you drop a preamp into a tyvek bag with a bunch of foam peanuts, and expect it to survive a 3 foot drop or throw from USPS or UPS or FedEx.
    I've gotten a few of those from customers! Use 1" of solid foam (sheet insulation) or 2" of bubble wrap, into a box, followed by the same into a box at least 3-4" larger in all dimensions.
    Then it's idiot proof !!

    That POS(piece of sh**)-3  sold last night for $122+ with no knobs, tubes, top cover, not working etc. Lotta work involved in bringing that one back to its original glory. Maybe someone really wanted a challenge ?

    There is no correlation between produced sound quality and price !

    there's always a bigger idiot with a bigger wallet . . .
    ASSuming that the transformer is OK, I see about $50 worth of usable parts in there.

    Nope, it's not the original transformer.
