I have an SX-1080 that is completely gutted. It had bad output transistors and we took enough parts off this to repair 4 other 1080 units. I believe this is a score, I would like to fix this unit but the face is awful and I don't think it can be done easily. Plus the parts are impossible to find. Here is what I want to do. I want to take the black VU meters and face around the dial from an SX-1080 and move it to the SX-1050. I have talked with my tech and he thinks he can take the meters and such and move it to the 1050 including the VU board. This really would be my personal unit. Why should we not attempt this?
