Much of the specs you asked for on many different models.

All of that becomes a non issue with a can of deoxite. It works great and has never failed when it comes to pots, switches, and output jacks. I'll give you the comment on the size factor, especially when you go totl. But thankfully for me, size is not a factor. And imo they just look sooo cool. Vintage gear isn't for everyone, but there's a reason my vintage thread is over 400 pages long with over 6,000 posts. And some highly respected members here have taken ownership of a vintage amp/receiver since I've created that thread. So at the very least, there must be something to it.L3000.gif

I'm gonna have to give you a +1 on that, because i'm not too lazy to maintain my stuff, and size doesn't really matter to me. The bigger the better I say.
