I'm in Eugene and for general maintenance I go to Jim's Electronics in Eugene. The guy I need to email about a recap of my 9800 is someone I met thru ebay. He works at the U of O and is a hobbyist who has sold many recapped vintage pioneer, sansui and kenwood integrated on ebay. I have never heard of Fred's Sound of Music. Glad they could fix your spec situation.
Me too.............I was beginning to think there was NO solution and would have to look for something else. Not a good feeling, but now, almost a year later, it plays flawlessly.
My daughter is in school there - last year coming up. I've seen a vintage seller in Eugene that always has a great selection on craigslist - wonder if it's the same guy?
