C-19 Recap Question - Help Requested
« on: August 11, 2013, 02:54:16 PM »
I just replaced all the coupling caps in my C-19 (8 X .47uF-630V caps) and at the same time upgraded the op amps.  Everything sounds great EXCEPT I am not getting much treble on the MM phono right channel.  The MC input is good.  I replaced the op amp for that input but the problem continues.  It is if the tweeter on that channel were dead (but it is not). 

Appreciate any suggestions, 

The schematic for the C-19 is available here:

$%$#@%$#% 

Now I have to drive over to the shop on Tuesday to get the phono stage repaired. Then I will need to have a beer with Tom.  Or two.

Wait... that is not so bad after all. 

Will return the C-9,  see if you can soup it up and sell it to me.

I hate it when that happens.  Since it was not accompanied by smoke and sparks, maybe an easy fix.

On the plus side, the soldering pen Bearjew recommended kicks ass!  That thing is ready for action in no time.

I haven't even taken my new soldering station out of the box yet.  I really need something to solder.  As soon as I feel up to it I'm going to get BJ or his brother to help me run new speaker wires.  Then I can solder on the banana terminals!  I can't wait.

When that pencil gets hot,  gets really %$%$# hot like right now.  None of that fidgetingwith the trigger on a 100/140 watt Weller gun.  It really makes messing up your Carver preamp a lot easier, faster, more efficient.

Sea Hunt lives!!!!  Unfortunately, I don't recall the days and exact time, but the Retro channel on Comcast (207 I think), reruns Sea Hunt early on weekend mornings and by early, I mean something like 5:00 AM, give or take.

Holy underwater Batman.  I found Sea Hunt on channel 204.  It's called "THIS" channel.  Sea Hunt is on Wednesday morning from 5:30-6:00am.  The next episode is season 2, episode 33 from 1959.
