Quad phono socket replacement

Whilst you're at it you'd be as well replacing the quad gold plated phono sockets with a new one especially if the gold plating has started to come off with use. These are very cheap (£1.10) and available from Rapid electronics Part number 20-1325 You can also get nickel plated quad sockets (part number 20-1320) Both types are direct drop in replacements for the original X-10D and X-CAN types.

New quad socket ready to fit.

Fitted into position.
