API2500 Question to owners

Hi,

few months ago I bought API2500 at KMR Audio London. Recently I noticed the issue with GR meters.They are not on zero when unit is cold (showing about 1,5-2dB), and gradualy going to zero only after an hour or so. API USA tech guys saying that's not normal, API UK that is normal ???....
Want to ask API2500 owners is it normal behavior? How long is warm up period for this unit?

Many thanks,

Arturas

It is normal that the meters do not work correctly after some years...the yellow led starts flickering too...but it is not too much of a problem usually.

There is no API UK, only their distributor, Source.

Get it in writing from API that's its not right then get them to put it right.

Yeah i've seen this on some gear (smart c1) but not my 2500. They sound incorrectly calibrated.

I'm sure the 2500 benefits in some way from a short warmup period, but my meters go to the correct position almost immediately

Off, they are to the very left and when turned on, jump immediately and spot on to 0 when on GR mode.

Thank you everyone for your input! it helps me to decide. I'll send my unit for warranty repair. Hope it will not be so long and painful process

All the best!

I just sent mine in for (nonwarranty) repair and it was a breeze - they're great to work with
