I'm new but I have read the odd post on here over the years. I've never built an amp though that looks like fun. For now I want to learn how to fix amps. I don't like most modern amps. They seem to be becoming progressively underpowered?
I currently own an Arcam Alpha 8, 2 x Technics 900Mk2, and a NAD C370. The first three (the Arcam and both Technics) still work as perfect as the day I bought them. I notice they both use Jap caps everywhere i.e. Rubycon, Panasnoic, Elna. The NAD C370 is currently dead and most of the caps appear bad and so I might ask the odd question when I start to try and fix it. It's caps are erm.. not Japanese.
Anyway, hello from England.
