Steve, I am surprised that you found a difference with the new Op Amps. My
information was the same as Paul Graces, in that it would make a difference
if the orignal was faulty. I don't remember seeing any problems on your
machine when I last saw it.

Now after five weeks of continuos operation, I have found really that there
is no discernable difference. There might be the slight possibility that
the colorgrade channels in the telecine tend to react more like a MK 3. I
find that the improvement is so vast that this is all minor.
What I would like to know chaps, is whether Rank has made a significant
change in another area which needs evaluation either on top of the Hush Kit
or instead of...... Seamus, what did you see? I presume you were
demonstrating on a new type Gold.
BTW, if anyone ever visits here I recommend them bringing a crash helmet and
a micrometer. The micrometer to measure the distance between cars on the
Freeway, and the crash helmet to feel more comfortable about it all!!
