Pioneer SX-626 ReLEDding (4)

Oh, and the needle bulb also failed and was replaced with two orange SMD LEDs, conveniently mounted on a piece of thin PCB liberated from an defunct printer.

Final results are acceptable after replacing a few bad caps in the audio path (before the low cut switch). Recapping is still advisable, especially in the power amp, but not really necessary. The controls and switches are in good shape with only minimal noise. It faithfully reproduces a typical 70's sound in the appropriate crappy 70's speakers...
