Famous Five in for tweaks. These things are a lump to work on at 1.05 metres long and around 13Kg. On the plus side polishing saves a trip to the Gym…
Case contains a Monoblock and 2 Dual Mono’s
This dates from 1998, we made a batch of surfboard amps for a UK dealer. 1050mm was as long as they got
SoundStream USA364 in to be sorted. Can’t help but like the screenprint on the board. Usual SS issues, lots of dead switches. Now ready to do another 20 years…
Decided to restore this once we’d sorted the baseplate. About 1/2 way through, main rail caps upgraded, one bank of 12v caps removed. Once these are replaced with uprated parts the preamp gets the works.
Preamp mostly upgraded, just waiting on some Holco resistors. Orange * parts uprated already, black X parts still to be done.The preamp is the weakest link of the amp and upgrading it should yield significant improvements.
LSA Standard amp mods in progress. Upgrading key components in the signal path, and massively increasing the power supply reserve. Think of it as weak link removal.
Really enjoyed upgrading this amp. Sounded pretty lush just on our fairly basic test speakers. Customer was extremely please with the final result and sound quality.
