10-4 on the upkeep being only for the wealthy on an OBXa!!!!!!!
I once sent mine from Florida to San Francisco on a Greyhound bus to
get it to the best OBy repair facility in the country. $$$$$$$$$
I finally GAVE it away. I have many gray hairs because of that SOB!
but when it was working, it was a monster.
I still have two Matrix 6-R's and an Xpander so the OBy sound is still
in my studio.
