I purchased my beloved AR3a speakers in 1970 and we've been together ever since. They had some work done on them professionally (replaced various drivers) in the 80s and early 90s, and for the last 18 years or so, other than successfully refoaming the woofers myself, all has been well. Until now. AND TO TOP IT OFF I am having issues with the performance of my 20 year old receiver (Nakamichi RE-10) as well. So I have several dilemmas. First, the tone controls on both speakers are pretty much shot. (I've had to move the dials around to find the "right" spot, now there is no "right" spot, and the range of motion on one of them is very limited.) They were the last things professionally replaced (1995?). I confess to knowing next to nothing about electronics, but I am something of a do-it yourselfer and after carefully reviewing the AR3a manual, I am prepared to take the plunge and replace the pots myself. (I strongly suspect that cleaning the present ones is not an option.) The manual recommends using an Ohmite RHS-15R. Allied Electronics website indicates these are no longer available and offers RHS-15RE as the substitute. So, 1) can someone confirm that this the correct item and 2) when the manual says to make a "thin aluminum cover" to protect the insulation, what exactly do I use and what do I do? I guess I need a little elaboration on this part. I hope I'm on the right track here. The other part of this issue is that my amp/receiver is at the end of its useful life. (It did very well and would occasionally clip out in the summer heat when the volume was too high.) I do not have home theatre & have no interest in it, so two channels with sufficient power for 4 ohms & limited bells and whistles is what I'm looking for (basically a tuner and inputs for cds, ipod, phono, etc.). I have read various discussion threads on this site and confess to confusion. If anyone can please suggest some options, I'd be most grateful. Thanks, Keith
