Most of the fancy IC's in the 7000 series are socketed,

using the little insert style of socket pins. Look for
a bit of white rubber stuff around each pin on the component
side for confirmation.

I have purchased a number of the ICs - #155-0078-10 in order to do some swapping. I am still wondering if theses ICs are soldered in or not. Does anyone have experience of them?

... Which is what I suggested earlier: "I think that's not enough, meaning that overall gain for *both* channels isn't enough. Usually, there's at least half a major division headroom".
However, on looking closer at the problematic 7A26, I think that the problem
is not only with Ch 1, as the Variable gain control on Ch 2 doesn't give as
much gain increase over the calibrated setting as do both channels on my
"good" 7A26. It is about one half of a major division on the "good" 7A26.
