    HK Citation 16a rebuild effort

    Hi everyone,
    in the next few months, I am likely to start functionally restoring a pair of HK Citation 16As

    they are the ones traded for a while back...
    http://www.audioheritage.org/vbullet...light=citation


    one is almost operational -- sounding OK at very, very low levels, but getting wonky with a little juice going -- indicitative methinks of failing capacitors...

    the other is missing a fuse cap, and i haven't gotten to finding another to replace it...
    (the other (semi-working) unit is a non-fused unit -- any benefit to retro-fitting a fuse assembly into the one without it already?)

    anyhow, i've been reading a fair amount online about these amplifiers and what folks are doing to upgrade, etc...


    installing new electrolytics is a must for both IMHO, but beyond that....
    using hexfred diodes, replacing the ceramic caps with metal film or poly ones, etc

    any thoughts from the membership here on a good (and cost effective) path to pursue?

    I'll take some fresh ones this weekend and post them...
    (there are a few in the link above)

    Thanks for the 'heads up' on DIY,
    I've also been in contact with a specialist in the midwest;
    who has been kind enough to offer his opinions and a few recommended suppliers of parts...

    just seeing what folks here have experienced, and trying to solidify my plans...
