    Casey, here's a link to the current file from 2009. http://akdatabase.org/Sansui/Report2.pdf. That file "report2" needs to be replaced with the new file I gave you. The AK Database appears to be on a separate server. We need to find out who has access to it. Is there someone you can ask?

    Rebuilding the 9090DB Dolby board, anyone replaced the 1N60 diodes along with caps and transistors? Is it worth it?

    I wouldn't change them unless they are bad. Very few people have a need for the functions that board provides.

    I have found local NTE dealer can order NTE 605a diodes. They say that the part number has been discontinued for years but was revived.
    Most likely any NTE dealer will be able to order them now.

    So, what is your recommendation to use on original F1040 Sansui board without damage?
    Thanks

    I am sorry I don't know the answer to that, especially as I have only just learned that you want this for a F-1040 board. (used in 5000x ?).

    May I suggest you start a thread and ask the question? - bear in mind that you may be advised to upgrade the board (as most people do) - there was a thread/post detailing exactly how to do this.

    There is a lot of information on upgrading that board. The procedure starts in post 163 in the FAQ thread.

    Please post the serial number for the database. Click on the link in my signature block.

    I have an AU-11000 that is having some issues. A lot of the caps, etc. have been replaced previously, but am looking to find a reputable dealer/tech to look it over. Any suggestions?

    The first suggestion is to give us your location.

    I wonder if anyone with a pair of SP-5000's uses an EQ and if so what is your opinion on the sound with and without. I don't have an EQ but was thinking of getting one if it is worth it.

    Is it possible to repair the photos? I've got a 5000 which needs some surgery
