There has been a lot of discussion on the forum regarding the merits of preventative maintenance with respect to the resistors in older DSP5000 speakers. Less so about the benefits of changing the capacitors on the amp board. Both are well worth doing to give the speakers a new lease of life.

Based on what I have learnt from "refreshing" my own speakers, I would like to help other HH by offering component kits to the owners of DSP5000 and DSP5000C speakers.

Each kit comprises:

           Qty       Value        Manufacturer     Range

             2       1000uF 16V   Nichicon         Fine Gold
             4       100uF 63V    Nichicon         Fine Gold
             5       10uF 50V     Nichicon         Fine Gold
             2       3.3uF 400V   Ansar            Supersound
             1       680R 4W      Ceramic          n/a
             1       330R 4W      Ceramic          n/a
             1       15cm wire

Currently the kit would cost £25 per speaker including shipping to the UK.

If you are interested, please contact me via PM.

Important Notes:
  • If required, the 10uF 50V capacitors can be substituted for 10uF 63V;
  • If required, the 330R 4W resistor can be substituted for another 680R 4W;
  • Check what components you need before getting in touch via PM;
  • I make no assumption on your capability to undertake the work, and cannot accept any responsibility for any damage caused by using the components supplied;
  • I cannot promise a fast turn around
  • The cost may rise in the future
  • I am not a business, just looking to help fellow HH

I'm not in the market right now, but I'll certainly bear it in mind. Meridian might be leaving some of us HHers high and dry but its good people like you that keep the flame going. Really awesome smile
