OK, lets get this one wrapped up. Raining again today, so it would be nice to get it closed. Question: Looks like I should go thru at least the simple phono-amp adjustment, since on I replaced all the transistors, diodes and most caps - but I rarely listen to vinyl. Also, since I haven't touched the tuner at all (seems to work fine, but no tests done) - anything I should get here before putting the cover back on? Also, I still need to do another "load" test like in the beginning - wouldn't that be a bummer if results weren't as good as I started with, LOL> A freq sweep and then square wave test - I'll keep ya updated! Whoop! EDIT: I did find a busted connection on that shielded tube for the left amp. IMO, ALL these ground connections that are soldered look like crap. I re-flowed a few.
