    Hey Kev, I have an SX-750 that I bought used & have it connected to a cd, tape and Bluetooth. Runs real nice but has a slight hum when powered on, nothing major and not really able to hear it when music is playing. I only really notice it when powering it down and the hum disappears. Don't know if it has ever been serviced but I suspect not. Something to worry about or is that par for the course ? Cheers, Nick

      Hi Nick, might just be a bit of mechanical hum from the transformer, however it could also be a number of electrical issues as well....Although really sounds like a normal power up surge from what you're describing....hope that helps...Cheers Kevin

      Thanks Kev...... will live it for now, don't really want to pull it apart it that's the only issue. Now I know you're around will holler if I need it looked at in the future. Cheers

    Still wondering why I stood in a 2hour line for Record Store Day,... oh ya, now I remember,... it was for the '73 ABB quad LP set.

    Hi Tomst,
    I am hoping that you could possibly help me as I need to replace the capacitors in my Marantz PM4, it seems that the larger black ones are no longer available and I can’t identify any of the smaller blue one ( there are no red ones) ?
    Kind regards

    Hi I was looking through an old thread from 2011 where you recommended replacing some transistors in a HK730, sadly the KSC1845EBU that replaces a 2sc1400 are no longer available. Any chance you know of a newer equivalent? I know these need to be hfe matched. I'm restoring a hk730 and just returning to electronics as a hobby after a 35 year break.
