I think you are right Russ! I need to simplify and start from a simpler setup. I have 30 days to return it, however, so I wont be opening it up or doing anything that would risk complicating matters if I need to send it back. I'm emailing with a nice fellow at Meridian, so hopefully we can find out if it's under warranty still, in which case, I'll definitely keep it.

Really appreciate everyone's support and perseverance with my newbie impatience!

You can tell if a LPS is installed by looking at the bottom of the unit. There will be a backing plate installed to support the LPS.

I'm going to send it to Marc. It has damage on it’s rear left upper corner that isn't in the eBay photos, but is in the pictures I took during unboxing.

Between them taking the pictures and shipping it, it got dropped or banged enough to take the paint off and spread the metal. So it's possible something got unseated, and I'm certainly not going to open it up. Going to let a professional look at it =)

Well I sent it to Marc, and he's thoroughly tested it on both its analog and digital inputs and outputs, and the only thing he found was an issue with digital output card, so we're replacing that. So I will shortly have an 861v8 in perfect working order!
