Default Re: Electron Kinetics Eagle 2C amplifier problem

That is a great amp you have there, designed by John G. Iverson the founder of the company.
The two caps are for the +/- power supplies. Since one channel is still working then no need to check those filter caps for now.
You should upload good clear pictures the inside of the unit so we can see the layout of the unit.
Are the SANKEN output Transistors shorted or what? If they shorted out it would have caused the main fuse to blow by now.
There are small lytics caps that should be by now for unit that old.
The way the boards are mounted are not easy to do the test with power applied.
