Just went to repair a black 1176, and look what someone did to the output tranny...

Not quite sure what to do next, I'm worried that I might find out it's stuffed.

It does, I just calibrated it, but I have that feeling that I don't want to find out what is going on there, because I know it won't be good. :shock:

Could it be a class-A type, "upgraded" to the newer push-pull output drive?

Hi Jakob, well, I live in hope, but nothing else look messed with inside. I will pull the schematics tomorrow and figure out what has been routed to what. I hope that the feedback winding isn't damaged, I assume this would alter the compressor's response.

C19/C20: 6u8/35V tantalums between sidechain amplifier and diodes.

It makes sense with tantalums here, due to their low leakage current.
