ARCAM ALPHA 3 INTEGRATED STEREO AMPLIFIER

THE ABOVE AMPLIFIER HAS GIVEN ME EXCELLENT SERVICE FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS OR SO. APART FROM RELACING THE OUTPUT FUSES ON THE ODD OCCASSION I HAVE HAD NO TROUBLE. UNFORTUNATELY IT HAS NOW GONE AND DIED ON ME. UPON EXAMINATION I CAN SEE A COUPLE OF RESISTORS THAT APPEAR SCORCHED AND BURNT. I HAVE ORDERED A SECOND HAND ALPHA 9 TO REPLACE IT BUT IF I COULD GET HOLD OF A SERVICE MANUAL FOR THE ALPHA 3 THEN I WOULD HAVE A GO AT REPLACING THE DAMAGED COMPONENTS. I AM SURE THAT IF REPAIRED IT WOULD PROBABLY GIVE ANOTHER 20 YEARS SERVICE. WOULD APPRECIATE ANYONE WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THE ALPHA 3 LAYOUT GETTING IN TOUCH. I HAVE LEFT MY EMAIL ADDRESS BELOW:

MANY THANKS AND MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE. ANTHONY MARCH
