Any recommended mods for Klark Teknik 1176?

I just bought the Klark Teknik 1176-KT, excited to use it. I am a bit of tinkerer though so out of curiosity i'm wondering if anybody has recommended mods for the unit? I tend to look at gear like this as a great platform for modifications

Are you good working on SMT because there's a bunch in there.

Transformers would be an obvious mod that wouldn't get you into the SMT but you would still working on a board that's probably not very robust because it is mostly SMT.

I'd say enjoy it for how cheap it is and that it's pretty good inspite of that. There are serious clones out there if you want a better unit that are far cheaper than originals or the UA modern version.

Probably the transformers, maybe replace them with a Cinemag .. Easy-to-do and will improve the saturation and low-end fullness, but don't expect a night and day difference. The stock Midas transformer won't sound good when pushed, so the biggest difference will be when you drive the signal.
