I forgot to mention - to remove the amp chassis from the case, you remove 2 screws from each side of the amp, and 4 from the top (including the 2 that hold on the handle).
Then slide the chassis out of the back of the case - no need to remove any knobs, but of course, you unplug the AC cord, speakers and floorboard first!
Then remove the 'bottom' plate to access the circuit boards by removing the 9 screws.

Great job. I've been using mine in a cover band for years. Took the guts out and put them in a rack. I have a spare that's in the shop but my tech. says he can't fix it. Says he can't find the part. One of the 2 converters. a/d or d/a I don't know. I find that interesting. Bums me out because I've got some great patches and once the main one goes. That's it.

Hey! I took a look for the A/D and D/A chips:
From the schematic parts list:
A/D: has 2 chip system
A Google search turned up:
www.findchips.com shows a source for each - made by Rochester Electronics
I'm not sure what the '-X' designates - its often speed, or packaging, or temp specifications.
www.akm.com is the manufacturer - their website lists local distributors - they may have the part.
Also check: http://www.utsource.net
Be sure that the parts you get are in the same package style - SOICs, I think.
Even ebay.com lists some of these parts - you could always pick up a dead AX2 and have your tech gut it for parts.

It's been great - no unwanted distortion from the splice, and the AX2 still running fine.
Hooked up my Yamaha keyboard to the 2nd input to make some rhythm tracks to loop to. Great fun!
Have you tried the mod yet on your AX2 ? It's gotta be the easiest mod ever!
