From my last one? Or since the cleaning out? I honestly didn't have to replace any caps or resistors, just a very very thorough cleaning/lube. I have the main filter caps in hand, but I didn't replace them yet. I put it all back together to make sure it was good to go, and won't take it back apart unless it sounds poor sometime soon. So I'll put the main caps in my closet for now. Honestly, Ito been over a year since I had my other 1010, but I believe it sounds the same, if not cleaner. Aesthetically this one is now in better shape because I took every last thing apart on the faceplate and case and redid it. Unfortunately I lost the "pioneer sx1010" badging, it ripped off when I taped it off, so I just resonated the trim and metal guard in the back with some nice model paint. I have a sticker being made to replacensure the badging though, so all is good. I may end up buying a new faceplate trim if I can find one, just so it's original, but I don't plan on selling this one, so I don't care TOO much. I really don't see how you can do better for the he4 ampwise without spending a ton more. This was 400 total investment, and damn it's awesome to have this warm clean detailed "tubelike" sound back in my house.
