Palladium LA-1000 pre-amp and Revox Evolution stereo system (#P2)

Well, this weekend I’ve been busy replacing dead and leaked caps from something not too Wan-Hung-Lo-ish…a Palladium LA-1000 pre-amp (“Vorverstärker”) back from the 80’s. These are still sold for absurd amounts of money (just like the Revox described down below), so I decided it’s worth a shot. Details on that thing are scarce, and so I’d like to post the cap list in case someone also needs replacements for their dripping electron containers.

3W High Power E27 Warm White Focus 3 LED Spot Lamp Energy Saving 165-245V (WHL #8)

Slightly aged review item today! :)

Last week, an E27 LED light bulb died. I bought it back in September 2012 for 2.58 GBP on eBay and got a full refund at that time because it was neither “3W” nor “Warm White”, so I decided to use it in a bedside lamp which isn’t in use much at all.

LEDs really have entered the mainstream!

Now back to the Wan Hung Lo lamp. […]
