Funny I came across this looking for something else.. ha ha
The S 200 used a 330VA XFMR that has different taps. The S200 benefits most from larger main caps and a FRED (IXYS) rectifier.
Class A will tend to have a more laid back presentation and the higher register frequencies will be cleaner. In other words any harshness or grain is eliminated.

Default Threshold s/300

Can you guys help here a little. My Nakamichi PA-7 gave up the ghost in a rather large and smoky manner. So i bought a Threshold s/300 in mint condition. Optical bias, serial # 2004. How do I find out its manufacture date? Where do I get a schematic/ service manual? Although the amp is working fine, I would like to go through it and replace caps, any known noisy transistors etc. i am an amateur electronics hobbyist, so this should be no problem. Any suggestions on what should be done and what replacement parts to use? I will be pairing this up to a very rare set of RTR DR-1's, again in mint condition. Rich
