    Coming Soon: Pas-3X

    Just snagged this PAS-3X (or so it is represented). From the description, it will either be the rectifier tube, open selenium rectifier or bad transformer. I have the former and the latter, the middle one (and the associated caps) will be replaced out-of-hand.

    "They" are suggesting an October 1 arrival.

    Wish me luck.

    No need, you will fix this one. Selenium rectifier is my guess, forget 12x4,
    maybe transformer.
    Good price btw.

    If it is an X, yes, good. Otherwise it will be o its way back to Canada. This is targeted as the office system, with a CD changer, an ST35, and A35 speakers.

    It's a 3X. It has the two small, original electrolytic DC blocking capacitors. It also has the notches in the bass and treble pots.
