    Hello AK! Just recently picked up a 317 for around $100. Wondering if it's worth the investment to have it professionally recapped/serviced?? Local rates are $85/hr for this service. Should I put a couple hundred more into this amp and keep it around a while??

    The AU-317 is a nice amplifier, and will sound very nice after a restoration, but $85/hr sounds very expensive. It really depends on what you can afford, a couple of hours from someone who knows their stuff will help, but I think a bit more is required for a full/proper resto'.

    Good luck with it - let us know how you get on. ;)

    Thank you! I am looking around town for a more affordable place I can get my amp service. Much appreciate the feedback and I'll be back with pics very soon!
