Got one! A lovely black version with rosewood. I've been looking for a nice one at a decent price for years but did not ever believe I would also be able to score a black one as I desired. Seller bought it from a widow and did not know the history. Looking inside I was not surprised to see the PS has seen some duress based on my research. I will consider my options here but for the near term I just removed the dreaded dis-bond glue, cleanup up the corrosion and re-soldered the associated caps. I will replace all the electrolytic on the PS with 105 deg versions. Yes, lots of heat coming off those TIP transistors! I will give the heat solutions some thought including considering one of Patrice's new PCBs that make room for heat sinks. I read somewhere that doubling the value of the filter capacitor just before the regulator will reduce ripple and allow the regulator to run cooler? I guess I need to determine which capacitor this is? Anyone who knows what they are looking at (I admit my limits) want to look at the schematic for me? Except for the PS, all the rest of the circuits look exceptionally clean with no signs of duress. I re-installed the cleaned up PS PCB, replaced all 12 bulbs (most were out) with some of dgwojo's fine bulbs and plugged it in. With just a di-pole it still performed beyond my expectations. Does it sound better than my T-2? Yes, same musical sound quality only better. Probably 10% better overall but bass is very impressive and probably 20% better. Most of the stations I listen to come in about the same strength as they do on the T-2 (both with di-poles). There is one exception, the KING classic station comes in much stronger on the CT-7000. About three times the signal on the CT as on any of my T-2 tuners. The CT-7000 captures KING at least as well as my C-85 did but with the musical quality of the T-2 (plus). This is worth the purchase alone as I love this station but this is the first time I have been able to really enjoy it in my main system. Purdy and the CD-S2000 matches it's classic design. Some new functions including adjustable mute, ability to turn off the lamps and a really good headphone output. I do miss the T-2 digital station readout but not much... They just don't make em like this anymore! PS has seen some duress but all easily fixable. I hate this crap! At least they only used it on the PS.
