Problem 1 - Distorted Output
You received this amplifier and the client complained of distortion. Luckily the client had a favorite song and has recorded it once before and then again as they did not know how to describe the problem other than it doesn't sound good anymore.

So you open the local folder containing three things, a bode plot, a schematic with nodes annotated on the schematic, and a note that this is a small amplifier with a variable bandwidth. It appears the previous technician didn't bother to take the copious notes to keep the folder updated with normal voltages and other useful tidbits.
