Just some images of how the chassis wiring looked before and after the caps were replaced as well as the rectifier diode and added resistor.

Before with the waxy caps.... and then after with the metal films and electro caps in place. Bypassed the selenium rectifier and added a hefty diode and added 90 Ohm resistor.

Trust me, it now sounds much better than it did before :-)

Thanks. I used to work with the much older sets years ago. I might be ready to dive back in and work with tubes once again :-)

Sounds great! Cool to think it"s putting out music that wasn"t written yet when it was manufactured.
