In 99% of the cases there were only a few parts replaced, instead of a full and proper restoration job. Please note a proper restoration must replace all electrolytic caps on all boards. DO NOT fall for partial kits that restore just one PCB (power supply, power amp etc). One should never replace just one tire and keep the other/others, worn out tires, on (Google it, a very interesting read).
A proper rebuild requires a full recap of all PCBs. On the other hand, if one succeeds in finding a good tech, a wait time is usually 6-12 months for the unit to be serviced and costs are sky-high!! I have been servicing audio equipment for many years and have developed deep respect toward all good equipment. Knowing how amazing and warm these units can sound, I have decided to put together this kit. It includes very good upgrades and improvements that MUST be done to the unit.
This restoration kit will make a huge difference in the sound quality. All the parts are of high quality Japanese Nichicon / Rubycon / IC / United Chemi capacitors. Knowing how many bogus/fake caps, diodes, resistors etc."They Shall Have Music"- Avery Fisher. Nichicon / Panasonic / United Chemi. Detailed instruction with colorful images, schematics, manuals (all of these are in electronic form, I consider these much better than printed version due to zoom availability).
