re: SA-2000

Great amp, smaller than a thought it would be but very solid build quality. Other than a couple of dirty toggle switches it sounds pretty good for 38 years old, however will need a recap job for optimal performance. This amp is very accessible and well laid out and should be fairly easy to recap. Thankfully the slide volume switches work well on mine as they might be hard to come by. I will update after the recap.

re: SA-2000

I bought one of these new in 1974 or 75.
It is built pretty stout.

There was some crosstalk problem when a source was hooked up and on (tuner) and the tuner signal would leak into the phono input.

I took the case off and cut the wire ties near the source selector switch and separated the phono input wires from the rest of the bundle. It greatly reduced the leakage into the phono section from other sources.
