Hello board members,
I'm allways interested to test new taskas / ideas. Here is my newest one.
I have started a hobby joint venture with an electronic HiFi expert who has more than 30 years of experience in Bang & Olufsen repair. Now he is out of job and has time.....He has especially a lot of experience on elder B&O 1900 series. This is a very flat HiFi stereo receiver which could be set horizontal on a flat table or fixed vertical onto a wall. This type produces an outstanding sound with 2 x 30 Watts sinus power.
How we have worked (and maybe: if it would make sense we'll do that one or 2 times more....)
we disassembled the complete receiver, all failed or suspect parts incl. all lamps have been changed. After this we assembled it again and performed a long lasting test run.
we disassembled the aluminium coverages and then a professional jewel burnisher (with a lot of free time also)polished them to a mirror finish (one unit), the other receiver has been anodized black, after this we applied the new operation lettering with a special film on it.
we disassembled the veneered side and front covers and removed the mostly damaged veneer.
Then we applied black color (car paint) or applied new veneer (type is walnut as I suppose), after this a clear high gloss laquer has been applied (passenger car laquer).
Assembled again and performed the EOL test.
