I just repaired a Component Engineering model MS-100 booth monitor amplifier.

Symptom: Noise in the speaker sounds like pink noise when the channel selector switch is in any other position _except_ "MIX".

Solution: I found a defective type TL072 integrated circuit (low noise op amp). Replaced it with an NTE 858M and everything was good to go. Sounds great again!

The TL072 is pretty common, Ken, as is the "074". I used it in the first FM systems I built for my place in '87.

Is that NTE 858M the same chip, or could you have found a real "TL"?

The NTE 858M is what the TL072 crosses to. Sure I could have gotten a real TL072 from Jameco for 53 cents, but this unit needed to be repaired immediately, so I went across town to my local electronics parts jobber, Electronic Resourcing (formerly known as J.W. Electronics years ago) and bought the NTE replacement. I strongly suspect the NTE replacement is in reality a TL072 rebranded with an NTE number anyway.
