Any suggestions for some brands of recivers that could be found at a pawn shop that would yield some good salvage parts for gainclone projects. I guess what I would be looking for specifically would be a stereo potentiometer for a two channel 3886 monoblock amp.
I usally go to the garbage heap, the el compartment to look for salvagable potensial. i'v found that fisher and onkoy are goldmines in desguise! i figured panasonics and technics, sonys and philips were good for this sort of thing, boy was i wrong.
the two brands and the ones like it provides solid, good and big heatsinks, oversized trafos and not to forget main filter caps.
15.000uf main filter caps is what i found inside a onkoy "all-in-one-wannabe-rack". good size heatsinks as well.and if you come across any marantz stuff i hear thats good too.
