Cleaning out a barn on some property we bought and found this under some hay. God only knows if it will ever work again.

Since the receiver has vents on the top, there will be lots of sludge on the PC boards, inside bottom of reciever etc.. All kinds of crap works it's way into that receiver. Aside from cleaning the outside front panel etc.. You will likely need to clean the switches and pots (volume, balance, treble bass controls) etc.. That you would need to do regardless of where or how it was kept. You also might need to replace some bulbs- I do all that stuff- too bad you don't live in Toronto.

I remove the knobs, put them in a dish of Simple Green all purpose cleaner. Let them soak for hours, then rinse. Do the same with the front panel once removed from the chassis. You will see hex nuts that fasten the anodized aluminum panel on the receiver. Replacing the 8v bulbs is easy to do, they look just like fuses that plug into a fuse holder and are easily accessible when you remove the receiver lid. The tape monitor switch being full of dust,hair, particles etc.. can actually cause one or both the channels to not work. The signal path goes through this switch so aside from pushing it in and out many times, spray some Dioxit in there as well. Dioxit D5 is a popular contact cleaner/lubricant. You will find tiny holes pressed out ot the pot where you can use the Dioxit extension to get the spray right in the potentiometer (Pot), or variable resistor as it's known.

Perhaps you can clean it yourself or know of someone who can. Nice find. A Threshold power amp found under some hay would be better but kind of depressing at the same time considering how good it is and that it shouldn't be parked up some hay in a barn :lol: Leave that for the horses, not for vintage audio

It actually has no odor as the hay it was under was not used for animals and no mice got into it. God know what else is in there still have two rooms piled to clear

It's not to bad considering, by the looks of things you can't even by a power button for $5 bucks

That's great though, an audio guy finding a vintage audio piece randomly like that, must have been a nice moment for you.

Figure it was used in the out building at some point and just stayed out there, yet I have been finding random tubes in there also nothing to exciting.
