Today my Denon receiver was recapped. I replaced the power and coupling caps and checked for cracked or cold solder joints and powered it up. Better bass, and the highs are now smooth and clear.
To quote Bob Cratchit, I am a happy man.
Thanks to all for the advice and help.
How many caps did you change?

Replaced eight. Four 10,000uF/80V in the power supply and two 1uF/50V coupling caps, and one that may be a coupling cap. It was in series between a transistor and the stereo on/off switch. I wasn't sure it needed to be replaced, but did anyway.
That's great. What Denon was it?

Cool. Fun tweaking eh? Congrats

Great to hear that. Doesn't it seem to sound a little nicer knowing that YOU did that!!!
