Thank you Ernie.
And as I said on the phone, also: the repair or the replacement of the Spectrums at $135.00 each was nothing compared to the $2,700 worth of other DMX data boards damaged in the entire chain.
This particular setup was one I've used close to 20 times in the past 9 months.
I was 99.9% sure ADJ was not about to stand up and take responsibility for this. The factors of other manufactuers products being in chain and the costs of those products affected by the Spectrum ROM chip were clearly going to be an issue.
Your call just confirmed my suspiscions.
The cheapest, entry-grade fixture I own brought that DMX system to it's knees and ADJ's stance to dodge ownership by correcting the situation, now has this going to YouTube and every "kiddie-grade, bedroom DJ" forum website.
