Resistance testing in manual - possible correction?
« on: November 06, 2020, 07:41:41 PM »
I recently finished this kit and it was a lot of fun to build. I noted the incorrect values for terminals 10 and 20 from another thread, but I was a little confused by the initial resistance testing instructions.

Upon attaching the negative lead on my multimeter to terminal 23, I touched the positive lead to the ground lug near the plug thingie and it read 22 ohms. The instructions say that resistance should read near zero or zero. I noticed that the 22 ohm resistor package comes from terminal 23 and goes to ground on terminal 32, which would match with the resistance I was seeing on my meter. Did I do something wrong or is the guide incorrect? The preamp works great and sounds amazing, so I assume I must've done it right but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That's a good catch, that paragraph is borrowed from our previous manuals where the audio ground and earth are hard bonded, but that is not the approach we took with the Moreplay.  We'll get that corrected, thanks!
