Vintage: FM Acoustics 266 - inside

This is a later production 266 version from around 2004.

Earlier versions had a different connectors pcb than this one. The connectors pcb is completely separated from the main pcb on the later versions of 266 and 268.

266II and the latest 268 versions also have different input impedance on input 1-3.

Modules used on this 266:
Input - 19510
Output - 19507/508

The latest 266II production version uses 19610 and 19200 modules.
Old 266 versions sounds around 85-90% of the newer versions, but will sound better when changing to the latest modules.
