Yep, it's that time. Finally got a little bench time to start on the one recap job I've been eagerly anticipating for awhile. Note this thread will be a long term thread, as stuff comes in I'll have to set this aside from time to time. Original thread on how I got it is here: http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/just-got-my-keeper-integrated.816045/ We start with the flat amp board (F-2841). I will be mostly following what @Leestereo did with his 919 (kudos to him and his excellent work), but I am upgrading a few more components. This 919 is an early model, which means it has 5pF black flag caps at C15 and C16 along with C31-34. Front of the board before recap: Back of the board before: First problem I ran into is that darn Sansui glue. Thankfully this stuff has not started to break down and cause corrosion, so a big plus there. It is mostly in two places, the 100uF local decoupling caps along with the film bypasses for them and the output capacitors and their film bypass caps as well. I got the decoupling caps photographed before and after but forgot to take a before of the glue on the output caps. Oops. You can kind of see it in the full photo up top. Decoupling caps before: And after: I also replaced C27 and C29 and cleaned the glue there, the big after photo will show this. Here is the photo of the output caps after glue removal and replacement: That's all for now, found I didn't add the replacements for the 33uF caps that shunt ZD03 and 04 to the BOM. They're on the way, so I'll be able to continue soon.
