Ah, not THAT good then? And "completely rebuilt"? Sounds a bit 'Triggers Broom' to me!
It doesn’t have balanced inputs, mic or line, I only ever used it for synths, which sounded amazing.
I didn’t renew any of the caps etc, I was scared of loosing the sound, all the sockets were worn out, and the wiring on the stereo buss looked like it was done with old bell wire, I replaced that with 00 gauge model railway track rails, and replaced all the jack sockets.
I know of a few mixer manufactures who used model rail track for bus bars, it’s ideal.
I also replaced all the faders, there really wasn’t anything else wrong with it.
Ah! It is a LINE level mixer...did not know that. Replacing the caps would not "change the sound" so long as you fitted the same value. Mind you, the caps in the EQ will be foil types and really do not age. Even electrolytics last way longer than many people think.
