Guys, I received my Archon today, I was so excited to finally play it...But bummer!
I have a pretty loud hum all over the two channels (pretty disturbing when playing on reasonable volume levels) and when I play on the clean channel I hear the distorted guitar tone in the background...Even when I turn the channel volume completely down I can hear the distorted channel on the clean channel...There is also some serious hiss going on when I turn the depth knob. I ordered the Archon because of his brilliant clean channel but with that amount of noise in the background, there is no real "clean".
This is already my second Archon, the first only had the hum problem. I really do not know what's happening here.
I tried everything: Different guitars, 100w/50w, effect loop on and off, different rooms...Nothing...I even moved the amp to another house...
Could you describe the noise you get with your Archon if you have any? The Archon has already been sent back to the dealer...:-( Again!
