All electrolytic caps should be checked and exchanged when out of specs.
The main power caps are usually of good quality, but in case of flaws can be upgraded up to 10,000µF.
Check input transistors of the power amp section if they make noise.
Exchange the pots on the power board for 10 turns and align the power amp correctly.
You may heatsink the drivers transistors as well as the pre-drivers.
The input transistors of the power amp section can be joint together with a copper heat-joint to get the DC-offset more stable.
Set the power transformer to 240V in Europe.
The input el-caps of the power amp section can be replaced by small true MKT capacitors.
There are 2 versions of the power-supply of this amp, one with 4 diodes and one with a TO-3 bridge.
There are 2 versions of this amp produced: 1 general version with cinch sockets and one EU version with DIN sockets.
Consider a DC-sensing speaker protection-board, the amp has only AC & DC max. current protection.
Speaker wiring is rather thin and may be upgraded if you like.

Excellent sound, quite the same high quality as the Sansui AU-666 and other amplifiers of the same kind.




Nice amplifier the Nikko TRM-600.
