Hi unclejed613,
When redone, those can sound scary good. They put out over 30 wpc (38 if memory serves).

Well the JVC receiver is still going strong. It had an intermittent fault (failed to power up occasionally) that I thought had been traced and cured. I got a user manual and performed a tune up of the RF front end to re align the tuning. Much better reception was obtained.

After a while, another small fault developed on FM - popping sounds accompanied by shifts in the signal strength and variable reception. This turned out to have 2 causes... Firstly the FM "ground" connection to the pcb had broken. Fixed that, but the popping returned. Probing the FM section did not reveal the fault, sometimes it would be worse after switching the input/waveband selector. It turned out to be a bad joint on the main amp board, where the power for the radio section is regulated.
