PointBleu 2330 / BlauPunkt 2330

This 4 band in France made tube receiver manufactured in the late 1950’s came to the workbench with a terrible hum. So in this case we connected the receiver to our variable AC power supply with current limiting protection to prevent any further damage to the power supply.

A well preserved wooden case and white speaker cloth, so well taken care of …
When flipping the chassis over to the component side the retracted paper on the electrolytic capacitors drew our immediate attention.
So even all the wax capacitors will have to be replaced as well as checking the value of the resistors.
… some of the dead electrolytic capacitors.
After replacing all bad components and performing some realigning the sound from way back when is present again. Unfortunately the magic eye tube became very weak, but for our customer this was no big issue.
