The intention of this sub-forum is to provide a place where members can conduct discussions related to the restoration guides provided in the "Vintage Restorations" sub-forum. Specifically, this sub-forum is provided so that the actual restoration threads, in the "Vintage Restorations" sub-forum will not get lost in the din of discussion threads that are likely to develop.

If you post a discussion thread in the "Vintage Restorations" sub-forum accidentally, we shall move them easily to this discussion sub-forum.

In this discussion sub-forum, you may find the occasional remote troubleshooting thread. This is where an individual has a piece with a problem, and an experienced tech might guide the troubleshooting and repair, using the OP's (original poster) hands and eyes. The guide gives specific instructions on what to do and what/how to measure, and the OP performs the instructions and reports results back, then waits for the next step(s). These kinds of threads may take a bit to get started, but once they do, it is best if others step back and watch, so the guiding tech and the OP can operate unhindered. This kind of thread also serves as a resource for members and visitors with similar problems in the future.

Please remember that the regular HiFi Haven rules apply in here, as they do elsewhere.

Now...let's go sweeten up some gear...
