We do however insist on you wearing shoes when you work on your Revox tape recorder because not to do so would be silly and dangerous! There is some tongue in cheek stuff there - excuse my sense of humour and dig at other international on-line retailers! If you are ever in Sydney, always welcome for a chin wag, and, I make, so they say, a good cup of tea. Other audio path caps and transistors. Our kits have what is most likely to be degraded without going over the top. Supply any audio path paper, mica, poly or other caps
However we will be making transistor and IC sub kits available at nominal cost in the future for all machines. They are a "good" thing to have a few in your parts bin just in case. If you want to replace transistors, we can certainly supply (if you want authenticity) original spec or (if you are a sonic purist) modern very low noise high gain equivalents we have tested extensively.
Just let me know when you order a kit and we can include them at a nominal cost. PLEASE ALSO NOTE: Our precision high grade motor capacitors are specially made to our specifications for us for Revox and Studer tape decks. There are NOT generic white washing machine / fan capacitors which have wide specification tolerances. They are also the exact Revox capacitance values not "approximately close".
Anyone who implies that a higher capacitance value is better is talking nonsense. Old motor caps - its just not on and is a rip-off! Our suppressor capacitors far exceed the original specifications and are X2 rated to 275VAC. Cheaper inferior 400VDC and 600VDC capacitors just wont do the job because they are not AC continuously rated and you will be back to the smoking burning capacitor problem and blowing other sensitive items. Especially don't believe anyone who tells you that a different higher capacitance is better! Everyone knows better when they have something to sell! Did you know - capacitors degrade when they have been stored for a long time. The life of a motor capacitor does not extend beyond 20 years and they degrade quickly under working conditions when they are older than this. Our motor capacitors ensure the capstan and reel motors develop the correct starting and running torque necessary for smooth tape transport under a variety of tape tensions. If you have wow and flutter or sluggish FFWD or RWD then your motor capacitors could be the problem.
