Hahaha!
Well the good news is, that these headphone amps really aren't that hard to fix. (As long as the circuit board isn't cracked) :lol:

I may go for the IIB then, if anyone can input on how it sounds compared to the X100...

Buy the X100. If you don't, give me his number. :D The electrolytic capacitors are peanuts. With shipping, the 11 capacitors might cost you $10. Probably less. Let me know if you need part numbers for each capacitor that I use in them.

BTW - that Soloist is probably mine, if you saw it on eBay. That should tell you something if I am recommending buying the X100 instead of the Soloist. There is nothing wrong with the Soloist, however, BUY the X100. That is a great deal.
Old post I know but I was wondering if you would let me know what the part numbers are for each of those caps so I can replace them on my X100. I just got one and want to get it back to 100%. I ran across this thread and that would be a great help.

Also, wondering how the original poster made out with that X100. How did it go?

Works great, been using it for a while now! I did end up sending it off for a refurb back in 2018—my input jack came loose from the circuit board. I decided to pay a pro to do it after attempting to replace the toggle switch in my guitar and burned a bunch of holes in the guitar and ruined the switch. Turns out I don’t actually remember how to solder.

I may also have the parts list you’re after, but I’ll have to dig for it. Might take a day or two.

Hey-
Sorry for the slow response. I never got an email
or anything alerting me to your reply.
Anyway, thanks a lot for getting back to me with that info. I’m hoping my soldering skills are up to the task 😊. I hear having a temperature setting soldering iron helps a lot. I think I’ll grab one of those for this and other future soldering jobs.
Glad to hear everything worked out well with your X100. These things are awesome!
Thanks again,
Mark
