to be fair the CA series have been coming in with vented capacitors for a few years now, so not just the 7/8/9000 series. Luckily a set of caps for a CA12 is only £150-200 trade but they aren't as big as the ones in an 8000

8001 was my favourite amplifier to drive the bass. Of course it was about 20 years ago. I don't agree, with Viktor, this amplifier has very good sound, it was well designed, bullet proof build.
We had about 20 pcs. and we lost only 2 channels in 4 years, even with heavy disco usage. It was easy to repair, and even easy to make it more powerful :)
Agree, that the capacitors are expensive, but it's quite checp to replace them with the new snap in version, with a small pcb.

"I don't agree, with Viktor, this amplifier has very good sound, it was well designed, bullet proof build."

+100

Mine even survived getting plugged into 480v once (yes, I know: Meter Your Mains). The input switch-cum-breaker popped and that's all. After the mains were put back in place, they powered up & worked perfectly. I'd like to see how many (modern) amps could match that.   Thumbs Up
