The power supply and the FM filter block in the European version ^

 

Modifications:

European users should set the main voltage selector to 240 Volt,
or let a qualified technician change the voltage setting.

Cleaning and checking all fuses is part one of the repair or upgrade.
The light bulbs are usually broken after many years of service, so they need to be replaced by new or by leds.

The power amp section is the same as in the Luxman L30/31 amplifier,
so what you can improve is to be seen on this websites page of the L30.

Replace some capacitors in the power supply and power rail.
The main power supply capacitors are of good quality so check if they are ok and replace only when required.

Realigning the FM section is after many years of service a good thing to consider.
