    Mrh, nice find from dump but too bad it's not working. May be you should salvage the EI core transformer and return the rest for the dump store? From the pictures, looks like regulator chip and some resistors got smoked. May be a simple fix if you can find a schema on the AK Vintage Forum.

    Interesting; I didn't notice anything that looked overheated or burned; I'll have to look again.

    I actually assumed that there was an internal fuse in the PT that might be the culprit (I haven't checked anything on the transformer itself) and that the most likely problem was a toasted PT :-P

    The Onkyo is turning into quite a saga (in case anyone's interested).

    There are indeed heat-discolored regions on one board, by the bye.
    I apologize that I missed it before; it's not as obvious to the naked eye as it is in one of my poor flash photos.

    (sorry for briefly derailing the thread...)

    Marantz DV-7600 sans transport. Recently, the transport has become very noisy, so I'm looking to replace it. While doing some research, it appears as it's the same transport as used in the dreaded McIntosh MCD-201.

    Default Ping - BillbillW - Re parasound 2200ii

    I have a bit of an issue - I have been given an old 2200ii and she looks pretty much like she's been rode hard and put up wet.
    Somebody took out the connector board to do some kind of repair at some point - which means all the wiring has been disconnected - and of course nothing was labeled. So I don't zacly know where all the wires go back (although your picture of the guts was very helpful indeed).
    I am also given to understand that you might have a schematic/service manual. Would there be any chance of having that sent up north to Edmonton (if it's in a sendable file of course)?

    I really want to use this as a major learning project as much as getting this sweet old piece up and running again. My tech guy says he'll help (some) but I need to do this on my own - and I don't plan to die trying either.

    I'd sincerely appreciate any help I could get.

    thanksabunch!

    Default Hold! Got most of what I needed for the HCA-2200ii

    The ever popular Tony at Parasound was kind enough to take time out of his day to send me a schematic.
    I'd still like some close-up pics of the boards but I have a starting point (not that I'm any good at reading schematics - wine menus - yes, schematics, not so much)

    Don't think I ever displayed my Franken-Revox A77, and the carcasses that were used to reanimate it (did I?).





    The survivor is now a half-track, "high speed" (15 and 7.5 ips) machine and its performance is excellent.
    The carcasses are still in the basement, awaiting the Rapture I suppose.

    It doesn't look like I ever posted this one, either. Yamaha TC-511s, a very basic, early "front load" (sort of) two-head cassette deck with Dolby (B) NR. My first cassette deck was one of these (not this one).

    Since we're posting old junk.






    The first one doesn't work, I may try to restore it one day though.

    The second one works for 15 minutes, then the volume slowly fades away. Needless to say, it doesn't stay plugged in.

    The Duet is great, I use it more than half the time. I need to sit down and do some more critical listening, but so far I can't tell the difference between FLAC and redbook through my Marantz DAC/Player.

    Ditto. Squeezebox rules and the new Squeeze Touch is going to be cool. Like Face says.............an external dac is needed.
    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it.

    At first, with seeing the Duet controller next to the taller Philco, I was expecting to see the SB receiver inside it on the next pic as a kind of camouflage.

    Still cool though.

    all's I have is old junk...

    Nice radios. Probably a bad passive (capacitor or resistor) in the latter one - a can of "freeze mist" circuit chiller could probably ID the suspect component in a jiffy. "Jiffy" is a very period-correct term for this radio, BTW.

    I said it was coming, so here you have it. One FULLY-MODDED Moscode by the Man himself.....Stephen Sank :D

    This is what I'm currently running, definitely a big step from the upgraded+2 mod Moscode 300 I posted up here a few pages back.

    Looks good,I bet a small fortune was spent on those MIT and other film caps.Are the Holco resistors stock or part of the upgrade?

    Upgrade, I'll repost a few pics of the other Moscode with stock caps+resistors. The weight itself is very noticeable too!
