SABA Phono Super 125
SABA Villigen 125
This unit was not as lucky as the one above. It must have took a hit or drop in shipping. The front panel metal chassis bent, flexing the glass. And glass does not flex so it broke. I hope to find a replacement or reproduction from a European resource. (See the Vendors under the Links page and the Dial Scale page).
The dial scale has arrived. It was great luck to find one.
The restoration begins
The original ECL82 (6BM8) has a short. A new tube performs well with out hum and pulling the B+ down. I put a series resistor in line with the diode. I selected the resistance by trial and error measurement. I set the line voltage selector to 125v by measuring the filament supply.
I did not want to take a chance at the replacement dial glass getting broken again so I built a wooden crate.
