Hello, Everyone, Im sure this topic is in plenty of forums...
But what the hell, lets start another conversation. I have been the biggest fan of the vs products, have used them for 20 years for LIVE sound! I need to get another. Of course I can pick one up on ebay, but I get a litte lost with the whole input noise problem that they supposedly had on the 2480's Im not even sure to tell if mine has the problem, But can I get some advise on buying another 2480 that wouldnt have that issue? Thanks Brian

Some info to read that I found in a quick search of the last 12 months of the 2480 forum - serial number. Probably wasn't the most direct search to find out about the noise issue, except that finding out if a machine was likely problematic had to do with knowing what the serial number was... You could try other search keywords that have to do with the distortion, mod, preamp distortion, etc.

That first link Uptil provided includes a test you can perform yourself on the machine to see if it has the problem.

I was under the impression that all of Roland's DVD models (after the CDRW model) had the input FIX done at the factory but I don't know that for sure.

What you'll want to look out for though is buying an older 2480CD that has had the DVD drive installed after market, but no fix.

C Jo Go, where did you find your serial number on the 2480? I've been looking for mine in order to find what year is was manufactured, but no luck... No input noise issues here, would just like to have a little history on my unit.

So would the number start with an N? The only thing mine says is N225.

Disregard my post above. I have looked all over my 2480 and there is no serial number. The "N225" I asked about is obviously not it. Strange. Concerns me a bit seeing that I bought it used.

Hello everyone,
I often read this roblème that could have the roland vs 2480 ..but I have never done the test. this distortion of preamp, it hears to the ear when the roland has it? ..I had heard that the problem was solved on version 2. ..I have a roland vs 2480 CDRW ..
