Have had my 8 Deluxe for several years now, and decided to get it serviced for a few problems last year. Methinks what was essentially done was Deoxide of the controls, tuner alignment and maybe setting of bias and offset. I now have an intermittent static from both channels, even when the volume is at zero. I can get it when I turn it on, or it MAY play for hours without any static. Any thoughts as to what's up?? Very frustrated with it and my G-7000!!!
