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

I believe the DSP5000’s are essentially the same as M60’s, but with the addition of the DSP function, so assume this kit could also be used to refresh these earlier speakers.

Sorry to hear of the arrest. Did you make bail?

Oh... wait... you’re saying you were in, ... mate. Not that you’re an inmate! I was hoping for a good story.

If anyone wants a kit for the M60, I could make one up as I think it is the same components. It would need to be confirmed though as per the 3rd bullet point.

Hi

I have a 5200HC 100189 about 8 years old. I have now changed it to an upgraded SE. As such the old 5200 was unplugged and put to one side for several days. On powering up again it keeps blowing the glass fuse at its mains socket. Enquiry has suggested, and the symptoms seem to be the case, that the capacitors have gone right down and the power board has become "defective" hence blown fuses.

I can send it back to Meridian but at the same time I am not without experience with a soldering iron and have changed capacitors and such in the past. Are you able to offer any guidance on same and how readily the back panel is removed to gain access or is their a "work sheet" available. Obviously I can then make judgement on replacing the capacitors which seems a good idea in any case.

Thank you

Have a look at these pictures:





Just undo the screws around the side of the back panel. You can take the top part only off and unplud the power cable and ribbon cable, but it may be easier to take it off as one piece.

Hi
Thankyou for photos though I am referring to the HC (centre)

I have though since managed to remove the back the board is similar however not sure which are the actual power supply capacitors as such to replace?

Sorry I missed the HC. Assume very similar to remove though.

Can you post a picture of the board?

Hi

Thank you for reply.

Yes easy enough to remove once you were sure it was only outside screws to remove and a little gentle prising!

Looks the same as your photos. Have taken a couple of photos but cannot readily send? Tried copy and paste but no good. Can you help?

Thanks again

Colin

Upload to the gallery first then copy and paste the IMG TAGs into the topic.
