    What was done:
    **all transistors save for output trans and phono section JFETs
    **all diodes
    **all ceramic (NP0/C0G) and electrolytic caps (FC in PS, Cerafine, UFG or UKZ for audio)
    **all 1/4W resistors from 5% carbon film to 1% metal film -- all other >1/2W resistors replaced as well with MF
    **Deoxit all controls
    **sexy (I think it's called Green Patina?) powdercoat
    **new lamp and fuses

    ...and she sounds as clean as she looks, but looks better in person! Suhweet!
