Very nice sound, wish I could keep it...
Well done! The Alesis is indeed a lovely speaker especially if you use it as nearfield (as it is intended). I have mine for 5 years now, and today one of them simply didn't switch on anymore

So I rang my friend Chris who already helped me fix a M-Audio Delta 1010 unit by replacing some fried capacitors, and he is hopefully going to have a look at it this afternoon. I also rang the support guys in UK they are quoting a very reasonable repair rate of 15 pounds / half hour.

If the Power supply is fried the whole unit would be 60 Pounds, and 56 pounds for the amp, but if they repair them in house its about half of that (trade prices). On top of that I would have to pay for it shipping from Ireland to England and back here, so I am going down the self repair route to start with.

Let's hope its just some bad caps! I might post some pics later.
