Another Concept receiver saved! This time, it's a 2.0.

Got yet another Concept in for repair and refurb, and just got done with her.

This one was working, but had some issues and was pretty dirty inside.



This one got many (not all) new caps, new "death diode" MV-13 bias diodes, bias adjustment, switch and control treatment, and some spiff-up.



Here are some other shots. (I know, this almost looks like a blue-screen composite, doesn't it?)



She's a beauty!



Wish I could keep her.



The owner is going to be really happy. He'll use this one while I work on his 16.5. Love it!

VERY pretty! I love the looks of Concepts...
Going to have to pull out my 6.5 and put it in rotation again.

Your rolling hill back-drops are always cool Pacific.

WOW!... What an amazing improvement. It looked like it had gone through one of our summertime monsoon Haboob’s.

Looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor now.
Nice Pictures. That sure looks like the drive from the Pala reservation on up to Palomar Mt.

Yeah, I really love the look of these. Some folks don't, but I definitely do.
