Sansui BA-F1 Power Amplifier Restoration Update

I’ve now finished restoring a lovely Sansui BA-F1 DC power amplifier. The Sansui BA-F1 is another beast of an amplifier from the golden era of hi-fi.

This Sansui BA-F1 has had a hard life, but will be good as new, once I’ve finished this restoration. I’m replacing all board-mounted capacitors, along with a few semiconductors. I am also cleaning and tidying up wiring and board goofs made by whoever repaired this previously.… Read more

Yamaha CA-610 and CA-710 Integrated Amplifier Service & Repair

Recently, two friends with lovely vintage Yamaha CA-610 and CA-710 integrated amplifiers sought my assistance to have them repaired. One was dead, the other was not working well.

The Yamaha CA-710 had blown one channel. One of the original output devices, a Sanken 2SA745, had a collector to base short and it had taken out one of the driver transistors.… Read more

Wishing all my friends and customers a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

I’m taking a break from repairs over the Christmas and New Year period and won’t be booking in any new work until later in January, 2017. Have a safe and relaxing festive season, however you celebrate 🙂
