Default Re: Akai GX77 recap - which ones to change if any?

So true. I recently needed to change a few electrolytics in a hifi receiver that I'm restoring. And yes, I put a couple in backwards. The darned negative arrow strip subliminally making me think it was the positive. I've been a qualified electronics engineer for 50 years and have been restoring equipment for 40 years, before that an electronics test engineer. So yes, 'measure twice, cut once' - it applies to changing electronic components too.
