@lynnj I’d appreciate it if you could provide your thoughts here on the Sansui TU-717 after you have had a sufficient listening honeymoon.
Because it is supposed to be very good. So it is understandable that you may have high expectations. I know I would.
I don’t pretend to know much about refurbishments except that what your technician did seems quite modest and prudent.
Yesterday I read on the fmtunerinfo website the refurbishment carried out on my model of tuner (Yamaha T-85) I was quite astonished. Wow. It was quite an overhaul and in my opinion something that only a committed specialist would be able to achieve, and perhaps only what a dedicated enthusiast would require.
