Hello again Gang,
I am a very happy vintage Crown Audio camper. Each piece I own seems to work properly and continues
to sound great. In my home audio systems, I use:
* PL-2 & PL-3;
* PS-200 & PS-400;
* K1 & K2.
Is there any preventive work I should have done on any of my gear? I ask this because another
amplifier manufacturer (Bryston) suggests their vintage units are eventually sent back to the factory
for "refurbishment", which typically includes:
* New power cord & power switch;
* New filter capacitors & feedback capacitors.
Some Bryston owners even have the old-style power square-shaped transformers replaced with the
newer "Toroidal" donut-shaped ones, at considerable expense.
Finally, do the Crown folks in Indiana still repair their vintage units? I sent a PS-200 to them about 5 years
ago for some light work and was pleased with the service, but got the impression I would soon be out of
luck owning vintage pieces. Is this true?
