A later and more substantial vintage transistor amplifier
to the Leak 30 and Leak 30 plus. The Leak Stereo 70 has a really clean sound with more power
and a better sound-stage than the earlier models.
A Typical Leak Stereo 70 repair
procedure includes: Safety check; switch, potentiometer and input socket
contact cleaning, fault diagnosis, replacement of all OT
components and replacement of all small signal
electrolytic capacitors. and smoothing capacitor and output capacitor
replacement. The two fat-can smoothing capacitors are replaced with modern
high quality Cornell/Dubilier capacitors. They are smaller in size but
superior to the original types. To accommodate them we use a circuit board
mounted over the original capacitor fixing holes on hexagonal metal pillars.
Full performance check and adjustment followed by a 24 hour soak test
and Electrical Safety Check (PAT).
Full service as described above £150.00 + UK return carriage.
If the input sockets are faulty, removing the old
riveted phono banks and fitting new gold plated types mounted on FR4 board
is a tedious and time consuming process. This is made worse by the tangle of
resistor attenuators soldered across the pins and slide switches. We can
replace them, however the full service + socket upgrade will cost around
£200.00 plus return carriage.
