    I was talking to a buddy of mine who has a Eight and was wondering if I would be interested in trading my 9090 for it. Any thoughts? I already have a Seven, so would it be a good idea, its crazy how these deals come up! Thanks and happy listening.

    Well, the 9090 sells for more. The Eight has some transistors that should be replaced. The 9090 is easier to work on, IMO. I have rebuilt both.

    I believe the Seven has a newer amplifier design than the Eight.

    I would not trade my Eight Deluxe for a 9090, but I would probably trade my Eight for a 9090 in equal condition.

    Up to you, but I would not

    Which transistors should be replaced, I'm working on an Eight?

    All the ones on the tone board, a few on the power supply, and the phono EQ.

    For sure the tone board.
