Hey there, After a few months of monitoring my local Kijiji for a nice CA-1000 to show up has finally arrived. I just arrived from Montréal (3 hours round trip) with it and it looks splendid. The condition is what I was looking for, as mint as possible. Wood casing is undamaged, all sharp corners, face plate is nick less. Only things I can see from initial testing is that the power light is burnt and the controls could use some Deoxit. I have a project of restoration for this baby as I want it to be a one of a kind CA-1000. I do not plan to modify it extensively but I want to bring the best out of it. I am looking for ideas or suggestions that I could do to bring that baby up to date. I am planning most likely a full recap done by a professional. I just do not have the skills to undertake it myself. As said previously, a good clean up on all controls is mandatory from what I can see. Next, I would like to have some nice binding posts, some Carada or WBT. But only for the A and maybe B speakers outputs. I want to keep one original in order to hook up some vintage speakers for future testings. Wood casing, although very nice, shows some faint discoloration due to exposed sunlight at some time. Restor-a-finish will be used with a cloth (no steel wool) to give it a fresh look. Another idea that I had was to swap the power cord for something in the line of furutech, Shunyata, Kimber, etc. Something decent but not too extravagant. Is there anything else that could be done to bring more life out of it? Maybe a performance fuse (if there is one inside).. Thanks for your input.
