Hello from Corsica, please excuse my english. Here in Corsica, we enjoy a variety of music.
I purchased an old Audio Research D150 back in 1996. When I first bought it, it didn't play correctly. We changed all the tubes in the amplifier and it went OK. During the past 10 years of operation, the D150 crashed twice, each time it gave off a violent "Poping" noise. I thought that would be the end of story. To my surprise, it continue to operate without problems, perhaps it was just a "cough" after many years of operation ?
Perhaps it may be time to change the capacitors in them.
I still worry that the D150 will one day break down and it will be difficult for me to fix it in Corsica. I may look for a D79A, B or C, or perhaps the newer VT200 ?
I'd still prefer if the D150 wouldn't break down on me.
