      Parts are not that expensive except for main filters which can be pricey. Labor is the wild card. Try pacificstereo.net.

      I have a chance to get a crown xls202(non D) for $170 locally. After seeing your posts on it do you think it would be a wiser choice for the money than another adcom amp? I'm very familar with how adcoms sound but have never heard this crown before.
      Thanks for your time.

      I have a parts 7.5D that may have the control you are looking for. If you can research it and it is, let me know. I used to have a parts 2.5 but I pretty sure it is gone now.

      Hi Sam
      i am looking for a dual tone control knob for a Concept 16.5 receiver (if anyone else has one... as far as I can tell the same knob was used for for enhanced bass and treble control on the 11.0, 6.5, 5.5 and maybe other Concept models) and I was hoping you were the SoCal-Sam that posted you had knobs like this in this yahoo group a few years ago? If so I'd be very interested, thanks, Http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/conceptaudio/conversations/messages/773

      Thanks. Found some stryofoam like you described at box city. A little pricey but better then damaged vintage equipment.

      Hi kaplang:

      Use medium density styrofoam sheets. It will have some give like styrofoam coffee cups. It is the same stuff used to ship furniture. In fact, I dumpster dive at furniture stores, LOL.

      Regards, Sam.

      Hello Sam,

      I can't find a post that you replied too. It was about you using stryofoam to protect things that you ship. You mentioned a specific grade stryofoam and I don't remember what it was. I have a heavy amp I need to ship and want to make sure it gets to its destination undamaged. Would you please tell me what styrofoam you use and where you get it. I usually buy my shipping supplies from Box City and they may have what you use.

      Hello SoCal... I saw your post about fixing up a Marantz 2500. Any chance you have a spare volume pot? My Marantz 2500 has been completely restored but the volume pot is funky. I'm desperately trying to find one. Let me know. :)
