Had time this evening for some discrete RnR. :)
Filter cap kit from Harbach showed up awhile ago for my TL-922 Amp and decided it was time to fire up the soldering station and play a bit without a microscope, magnifying glass or even plain old reading glasses! Non SMD tinkering is oh so good for the soul!

Before and after pics.
I got the deluxe kit, it had a solar cell and a meter.

Can't believe how stressful it was to mount these diodes & resistors! I really wish the manufacturers would mark the polarity on the resistors! What a pain to ID each one.... :)

The freshly made run of caps is nice. But dang it, not made in China....some crappy made in U.S.A. junk!  ;D
