Why would you want to repair a forty year old unit? Cost wise, it would be foolish. Today there are many integrates that far out perform your unit, and would cost less then a repair. The going rate for any electronic tech, who knows what they are doing, is $100 per hour, with generally a one hour minimum. So throw in shipping and a search for matching parts and you have a no win. Buy a new unit and look forward to another forty years of great listening.

Loose, don't waste your energy or typing time trying to convince Buconero117. Not worth your time.
Let him be happy with what he has (& you be happy with what you have).
Pity that he had nothing to contribute to this thread but had to blurt out some garbage...
I do not know if these guys can help you but try:
Thanks for your responses so far, people. Much appreciated!
Bombaywalla - I was a skeptic about vintage gear myself, actually...until i got a few pieces of my own, that is. When I got my Sansui up and running last year, i couldn't believe how good it sounded (as good or better than my Sugden integrated. Ok, let's just call it 'different', but equally good).
I had forgotten about the forums at Canuckaudiomart... i'll try there as well.
Hopefully, I can find someone who specializes in older gear like this...love it so much!
