• Sound Technology 1700B

    Well, it's been a few years. My 1700B has decided to cease operation, so
    it really is time for a repair and full rebuild. Here's what I am planning:

    * Replace all electrolytic caps in the unit. One of the main filter caps
    is dead, so it's time to do the lot.
    * Replace all the carbon composition resistors. A quick check on half a
    dozen has shown a 15 ~ 25% upward drift. Why did ST use CC resistors?
    I've been using cracked carbon since the 1960s.
    * I was going to replace the OP amps with LME49710 OP amps, but, well,
    you know. NLA. AD797s look like the best, available option. Any other suggestions?
    * Replace all the opto couplers.
