    I’ve done it in mine. You need to rectify the AC from the power board, add a smoothening cap between the rectified + and - and add a resistor of the correct value in series with each LED. You can't put all 5 LED's in series with one resistor, because 5x voltage drop is more than the rectified DC.

    Hoping the Yamaha experts are reading today. Recently acquired a R-2000. Very powerful clean power. I'm pleased. One issue... Ugly hum from the phono section. Even without a table plugged in. Before I open the hood. Any idea??

    What I think is you need to start your own thread ;) This is someone else's thread about a completely different amp :)

    Flux cleaner, dish wash soap and an oven at 50 degrees celcius are your greatest friends ;)

    Hmm, I do like the multi turns better. These are single turn. But, they should be able to do the job just fine. Maybe a bit more touchy to adjust.

    For the LED couldn't you just do a single wave rectifier on the 12vac?
