Audio capacitor service upgrade kit for Studer A80 VU models
KIT A80 VU audio - For most Studer multi-track modular machines 1/4 - 2".
This kit contains parts for :
- Replacement capacitors for all the electrolytics
- Replacement for all tantalum capacitors
This kit comes in a number of variations and options for 1 module or 4 modules (at a discount) as well as with or without Sync (usually 1/2" 2 track wont have Sync but most 4, 8, 16 and 24 track will).
NOTE: For 8, 16 or 24 modules please contact me for a special price.
PLEASE before you do any of the audio modules, it is highly recommended you do the main console using our essential cap kit for all the power supply and tape transport systems.
This kit is for those A80 machines that have plug in modules above the machine - 1 per track. The kit contains all necessary capacitors that should routinely be replaced.
This kit does not include any preset adjuster potentiometers as the originals are good quality and are fully sealed - it would rare that any would be faulty or too old to be serviceable. Please select the model machine form the drop down list. The variations are: Mk1 Mk2 -3 and Mk4 & MR. Prices are shown for 1 module and for 4 modules together (discounted).
By way of example as to how many parts are involved? Audio VU per module for Mk2/3 ~ 92 capacitors with sync and ~ 64 without sync.
PLEASE NOTE. All models have A101 linear amplifier modules which give problems as they age. Please consider replacing these. Generally 4 will be required per module plus 2 on the oscillator module in the main cabinet. (please check as often boards are mixed around over the years) BUT for Mk1 You will (ouch !) need 17 for each audio channel / module + 2 for the master oscillator card in the main cabinet.
