I did my first tuner upgrade on my AH673 back in 2014. I was a novice at the time and emailed Hoosier(John Carpenter) who helped me when I got stuck with something through numerous emails. John was very patient with me as I emailed him a lot and probably got on his nerves a time or two. I have learned a lot in the last two years and have gotten much better with a soldering station. This has been a hobby for me, a labor of love...something to keep me occupied in the evenings after a long day at work. It is a fun hobby as it fascinates me when I simply replace a few parts in a tuner or receiver and hear a nice improvement in sound as it breaks in. It is kind of like a therapy for me. I think I read somewhere that John had refurbished at least six of the AH673 tuners so far. John is very prolific with tuners as he's been upgrading quite a few makes and models for many years now. I also upgraded, thanks to John's help and support, my H/K Citation 18, Sansui TU-9900, Sansui TU-717 and most recently my Sansui TU-X1.
breaking in on my kitchen table through my modified Marantz 2270 receiver.
If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing well
Is that my Philips 6731 in black that looks so stunning atop the heap?
If so, I am very glad you are enjoying it.
I am considering picking up a Sansui TU-X1 in the next five years.
Since I have extensive listening experience with the Philips, could you please elaborate on the sonic differences between the two?
I am hoping a TU-X1 would be my new reference as well,
although I suspect getting my Sony ST-A7B properly restored/upgraded might be a tough challenge to even the TU-X1.
Thank you, kind sir!
