    Background,
    I have an ST 70 which has undergone some changes, i was looking for the last piece of the puzzle (well maybe?)

    At its heart now, it has the Tronola line, phono mods.
    Loudness mod.
    I aped Buzzks PS, which includes a small PCB that Jon made with Dave's EFB for the Eico.
    A bunch of nonsense was removed in the speaker switch and (i believe a Dave G tweaked output section)
    It really sounds quite good!.
    It also has a low level hiss (inaudible with program playing and uneffected by volume control) which i understand is inherent in the design. I also understand that the 2080 while remarkably similar (design and components) solved the low level noise.
    This will be a future project , maybe winter 17/18.
    I have ST 70 manual,
    I have a ST2080 schematic (thank you Jon)
    What i was hoping for was a 2080 manual (assembly, service)(which I'm not even sure one exists).
    What might be as good or better would be detailed pics of sections.
    I suspect Eico spent some time planning lead dress and routing. Rather than me bushwacking and trying to reinvent the wheel, i was hoping to follow the well worn path.
    Dave ,
    If you feel you didn't get enough kudos in the OP post, Dave is the man!
    If you have anything handy from previous work please let me know.
    If anybody has a 2080 in their stable and would be willing to pull the covers and do a photo shoot (between now and say thanksgiving/xmas, that'd be great!
    Could be posted in open forum or PM me.
    I'll certainly share anything that comes my way. Thanks in advance!

    Hi, I got a 2080 "Maintenance Manual" from the Yahoo Eico group. It's 11 pgs, not an assembly manual but it might help you. PM me your email address as it too large to upload here (1.9MB)

    here is the schematic, for anyone else looking for it:
