Brought an old unit back to life
Picked up a non-functioning RE-201 and ordered this kit. I replaced all the caps on both boards (you will have to remove a few connections on the signal board to access the under side), and all the tape transport parts, polished the heads, installed new tape and we were in business. Sounds gorgeous!
I did not replace the transistors, trim pots or the bias coil, but the kit has the parts if you need them. The electrolytic capacitors in every RE-201 likely need replacement by now, and the tape transport update and service is a no brainer. Highly recommended.
