Audio and Tuning Knob Upgrade

The audio upgrade requires the replacement of key components in the audio signal path. The end result is that the overall sound quality has better clarity. Consonants like c's, k's, q's have improved definition which improves intelligibility. Full instructions are included.

Please Note: This upgrade is not difficult to install, however this should not be the first time using a soldering iron. If you feel uncomfortable about the installation, or cannot find a qualified technician to install the upgrade, then we suggest you send the receiver to Kiwa for installation.
