      ..hi there.....
      I was reading your post of the nicest 9500 sansui you wanted to make. im interested to know whether. doubling those PS caps made a difference or not..
      I have a recapped 9500 with. all caps changed with one step up voltages and capacitance where possible. but used a nice beryl 4700 uF caps in the PS .
      please let me know what change in sound you found with various mods .

        It would be impossible for me to say with conviction that increasing the PA capacitors made a noticeable improvement though in theory it could.
        Though I loved the look of the AU-9500 I found that I much preferred my modded AU-999, even stock I thought it superior to the 9500.

        Or right. I won't do that capacitor thingy. And since 999 is even rarer to find ill keep the 9500 and continue to love it

      I don't recall specifically and I sold it once I got my G-22000. But if there was any hiss I'm sure it wasn't objectionable - as in way below the music.

      Did you ever get your ARC D-350 working?

      If not, are you interested in selling it for parts?

      Hard to say, I never listened to them critically though they made them more stable on carpeting.
      I made my own with some inexpensive hanger bolts and a bit of grinding.

      Thanks Jim.

      Did using the spikes make much difference in the sound?

      These have been refoamed recently as well.

      Hello Jim,

      I had a question about a pair of Boston Acoustic T-830's and was told that you were the go to guy for these.

      I was told that you raised and slightly tilted yours. Just wondering what you did exactly and how it turned out?

      I'm running mine with a Sansui AU-517 amp.

      Thanks!

      Jim,

      Email is fcarpcarp@comcast.net

      As always, thank you so much for your help with this, you make everything much easier. Speaking strictly for myself, I'm a person who operates best in "path of least effort" mode.

      Do you have any idea who the old Altec guy (Bill I think) and his sons names are and what their board names are? Like I ain't old....

      Hello, I saw your systems. I have two "stereo shop" switchers by audio authority. I have had them for awhile now. Pm me if you want more info. Something like 16 pairs of speaker switching CD, tape, amplifier.

      PM'd about arm-tube, then checked your profile. Standup? Auto racing? I think we've communicated somewhere (else?). Are you a carting guy? I did a lot of SCCA ITB racing in Volvo (able) and VW GTI w/hand controls (disabled) all over, but mainly NE. And my wife does standup. If so, small world. Phil www.philscars.com

    An embarrassment of riches that I never could have swung in the day.
