    Nice find. Haven't had the opportunity to enjoy any of the Drake line. Still spinning the dial on the RX only TT ArgoV though.
    Thanks, Ron.

    And when you fix the audio, the 4C is a GREAT receiver. I reconfigured the power supply using three terminal regulators and a zener regulator circuit and replaced that horrible audio amp circuit with a TDA 2003A. Significantly reduced the heat from the audio output Q.
