Thanks for the info, Tom. I appreciate it!

I think I remember reading somewhere that in the MC452, by "Quad Balanced" they mean that each channel has a balanced amp, one handling the positive voltage, the other the negative, combined in the autoformer. I'm certainly not an electronic engineer, so I'm not 100% sure this is correct. But I think that's one of the differences between an MC402 and MC452.

Looks like the bank of 4 27,000uF capacitors in the Mc452, has been increased to six in the Mc462.
