    Sansui 9090 Cabinet

    I've got a Sansui 9090 that I have had for years and have decided, this is the one I want to keep and refurbish.
    I'm going to recap -- but should be able to handle that one OK.

    But, I do need to re-veneer or buy a a replacement cabinet.

    Is there anyone out there that builds cabinets for the 9090 or has a re-veneering service?

    Thanks,

    Rick

    sounds like a fun project. Just be careful soldering as this old gear uses compressed paper PCB and is known for lifting traces. This would also be a perfect beginner veneer project. Use the heat activated glue that you use with a regular clothing iron. It would be a pretty easy job.


    There's lots of sites with instruction on veneer application. A small surface isn't too tough to cut your teeth on and would probably only take a few hours at most.


    Good luck.

    Thanks for the advice -- I'll take a look into it.
    I'll post a pic when finished with the refurbishing/reveneering.
