Emu 1820M Caps..?

Hello..Have a question. Anyone here able to do the replacing the caps in this unit. I know, I know it's an old unit but I like the sound and I have finally learned how to use it and now it craps out.!....Distortion and for some reason, will not send signal to the PC with Reaper from the rear Dock panel but will send signal into the two mic/line inputs on front.!..The tech that replaced them the last time has moved..I'll pay. Thanks...

If I were you I would just replace it, there is one on Reverb for $125. I don't know how long ago you had it recapped, but that's not something you do every couple years, more like every 10-20 years (maybe). The issue is likely more than some bad capacitors, and if it was only caps, your tech bill would probably be more than replacement anyway. Good luck.

Hello..Thanks for your reply. Do audio actually pass thru those two caps that always goes bad on the 1820m.? Its probably been about 10 years since I had them replaced..
