      How you doin.
      Really backlogged at the moment. At least 2 months.
      Tape decks - I really don't want to get into.I could probably put the second 1000 together for you-running mono blocks-don't see how to do it and gain anything. Now -bi-amping a set of speakers is a definite possibility with the right pre-amp.

      Stay inside buddy...looks like a stinker from the frozen North is on its way. I just bought a nice Phase Linear cassette deck (7000 Series Two) and am looking for someone who can service/rebuild the drive motor - is that your kind of thing, or if not, know anyone who does that stuff well?

      Also, I am thinking of assembling another Yammie CA-1000 and running them as a mono pair, with a nice preamp - is that doable (or even worth considering)? I already have the CA-1000 (the one you worked on still works superbly) and I bought the various 'missing' components off EBay about 1.5 years ago...they are all just gathering dust...

      Cheers :)

      Hi, Avionics. I wanted to see how your schedule looks and to see if you'd be able to work on a Yamaha CA-2010 amp for me. I bought it as a non-working piece two years ago with the idea of working on it myself. When I got it, it was in better shape than I thought and I felt it deserved someone better qualified than to have me mucking around in it. As far as I know it has not had any prior work done on it and the problem at present is the protection relay clicking rapidly on and off. I moved right after I bought it and kind of forgot about it. PM me or e-mail me at brucepoland@yahoo.com when you get a chance and I can tell you more about it and get your shipping address. Thanks, Bruce (Badger)

      No doubt, we should get together. I know you are in Iowa, is it CR?

      Regulated compensator is probably a current regulator.Just crank it fully clockwise and forget about it..

      Hi Avionic, I was wondering if you could answer a question for me.You seem pretty tech savy.I bought a dc power supply Power Designs Inc. model 2050 I believe there out of business now. Its a 24v 5amp supply. there is a knob to adjust the voltage and there's a knob marked regulation compensator.When I turn it nothing happens. I'm using this for a slot car track and if you have any idea what this control does I'd appreciate your help. thanks, dave

      Avionic..... Hey there, It's been a while. You helped me out in the past to understand some fundamentals in electronic circuitry, and I'm wondering if you had time to help me out again.

      Hi Avionic, I just bought two M-4's on ebay and the first one works great. It,s filthy inside, but I set the dc balance, rails and bias to factory spec. What upgrades, maintenance would you do for the long term besides cleaning and new silicon grease for the fets? Also, my bulbs are out. Your leds look great and I would like to do the same. Would you share your parts info and layout for the upgrade, please?
      Thank you in advance, David.

      Sururus..Good luck!!! those drivers are going to be very expensive to replace..If you can find good ones.I don't know of anyone that can/will repair the trashed drivers.I hope you didn't pay much for what you got..Sometimes those drivers show up on ebay--buyer beware they, may be garbage as well.
