KPA500 - LED Alignment

Harry_Yingst
In many photos of this amp it looks like the LEDs are not lined up (some higher others lower)
I realize this is cosmetic, but it's a distraction from it's otherwise nice appearance.

Is there a way to bet them to perfectly line up and stay that way?


Thank you.

Harry,

Remove the front panel enclosure and tilt the LEDs until they are
aligned to your satisfaction, then put the front panel metalwork back
on.  They will stay aligned.

Thank you, I have been seriously considering getting this amplifier.

I have been thinking about the alignment of the LEDs and knew it would bug me for them to not be straight.

I believe the manual says to use a straight edge or ruler to gently push
against them to align the LEDs.  That's what I did and mine are all
fairly well aligned.
