There are no pics of the second or third op amp replacement forgot to do so...

Also there where parts removed off of pcb board for accessibility to solder the soic sockets to target boards lands/pads that i did not take pics of.

Sorry!!

All Adaptors installed and two 3300 uf caps..

Orginally was going to do a swap out of all four caps but the four caps would not all fit onto pcb so i went with just adding two in parallel with two of the exsiting supply caps..

Looking to add another two caps in parrallel with whats allready there.

hmmm i don't have any spare caps but i do have a Titanium HD card that has so pretty 220uf 10vlts on its board..

I would not dare do that to a allegedly great card!!

Do what??

Take its organs out so as to be a donor for my Psyko amp creation can be the best it can..

Of course i will and i am going to do just that!!

LoL just crazy i am hah. I'll replace the caps later on my HD being that i don't use the Titanium anymore and will be selling it soon to the highest bidder on e-Hay..

I will order other caps for it and put them back when i receive them
from digikey

Ok wait i take that back i was just about to desolder the smd caps from the Titanium card when i saw something else sitting on my work bench and realized maybe i will not take out the caps from the lonely HD but better yet from a mother board just sitting their broken collecting dust on my bench.

I wonder if anyone could guess what this donor board is part of or was!!

Well i will go with these taken out of an old pentium 3 motherboard for now until i order some that will fit on amps pc board with the rest of the getting crowded landscape..




Could not remove smd off of Titanium board without maybe breaking the traces..

Seems that they are glued down probably and i did not want to wreck the card even though i don't use it anymore but will be selling it so i spared it of its donations of parts..

Plastic grill removed on one the other dremaled down to make new driver fit properly into driver housing top of headband.

Both where eventually taken down with dremal to make new drivers thickness as close to originals as possible for a correct fit..
