Yeah he supplied me with the service manual I think.

I wonder, as 22uF is a more sensible value, it may have been designed with this, but as Marantz put those 220uF Silmics everywhere they probably switched it to 220uF for convenience.

TX pic coming up.....

I think it's same spec as pm66ki, but it's copper shielded.

I have bolted my heatsinks together and will leave over the weekend as the compound keeps spunking out. I will then torque up the bolts again and clean up ready for fitment.

They will also add extra mass to the cd player lifting the heatsink weight from 360g to 1.82Kg. Amp should be approx 13Kg

All fitted now. I have not had time to post pics and will do that tomorrow.
I did however weigh it.... 12.62Kgs

Also I am running the idle @ 150mA and all is cool. Before 100mA got too hot.

Default Input caps

I swapped mine for the BG AC 50V 10uF. I picked 10uF as the output caps in the cd are BG AC 6.8uF.

Hi Brent

Which are the input caps on this amp?

I've done most of the mods on your list from a while back when you posted the pics of your bazookas, but the BG AC 50 isn't listed.

I'd also like to do the Schottky bridge mod but not sure how to do it. I've found schematics on how to put a bridge together from schottkys but to be honest it was a bit over my head.
I'd really appreciate any tips.

Ps any further with the 3020SE in your dining room - you seem to have been busy recently.

PPS EXCELLENT new heatsinks they're even bigger than the Kenny now!!

Regards

Jim
