Several years ago I purchased a used JDS Labs Element Mk I DAC/Amp, unfortunately after a recent move it stopped powering on. Any thoughts on popping the hood and trying to fix the internals? I would definitely need some technical assistance on what to look for and repair, but maybe it would be a worthwhile DIY learning experience.

Ask jds labs tell them exactly the problem, they are very good with customer support. I had fixed my c5d out of warranty once since I told them that I was ok to use a soldering iron myself and they were spot on with the solution after I described the issue detailed .
