Convienient electronic service kit for the following Bang & Olufsen models:
Beomaster 1600 Type 17xx
Beomaster 1700 Type 17xx
(All versions with two caterpillar band type controls, both FM and FM/AM versions covered).
This kit is for the trained tech or skilled DIY person about to do a complete restoration job to one of the above mentioned classic design receivers.
Basically, this kit takes care of the vast majority of electronic components prone to failure due to aging.
Included in the kit:
– All radial electrolytic capacitors, including the large power supply filter and output series capacitors
– All axial electrolytic capacitors
– All tantal electrolytic capacitors
– All adjustment trimmers
This kit contains factory fresh high-quality components.
Every component in the kit has been carefully selected for its specific position in the circuit to
ensure reliability and long component life while preserving the correct warm vintage sound.
The large filter and output series capacitors are high quality and high efficiency slit-foil types manufactured exclusively for Beoparts-shop. They are correct sizes to fit their respective original holders.
The opportunity was taken to upgrade the output series capacitors from 5000uF to 5600uF which will give a slight improvement to both the damping factor and the lower frequency response.
This kit comes with detailed component location charts (photos of boards with clear markings etc.)
Basic electronic knowledge, skills, tools and instruments is required to replace the components in this kit.
A servicemanual for your exact type of unit is also required for alignment references etc.
Note: The photo is merely for illustration, the kit contains more than 55 components!
