    Hi
    Was recapping the power amps of a ka 9100 and saw something I haven’t seen in the 2 other 9100 I have had on the bench. C17 has a leg lifted and a 3k resistor tacked on between c17 and the collector of q5. Its the same on the other channel and it doesn’t look like the amps have been out of the chassis.

    What's the serial #? (don't know if it's an early iteration, or late model change).

    Ok, S/N is 930099

    The other 2 units are
    720605 and 541371
    So the modified board is from a much newer unit
