Default worried about my cardinal

ive just paid for a pink triangle cardinal transport, yet ive just read on here that evenetually all the oil filled caps will fail , im left feeling heartbroken , and also curious , how easy to repair would it be , has anyone else had it done and can any competent repair shop carry out the work ?

ive tried to mail the main man but i cannot use email until ive made a few posts , so if your reading this john, would you be able to suggest my next move?

mucho thanky, and hi [ new member ]

Hi Voice Coil,

Sorry for the delay in replying.

If you open your unit and it has brown Nippon Chemi-Con LXF series capacitors, then these will ALL need replacing. Its not a difficult job for a competent repair shop as long as they can work with Doubled Sided PCBs without destroying the plated-thou holes.

Time is my worst enemy!
