The 32 has a first rate control programming and connection flexibility. It functionally exceeds anything built today. This makes me wonder why it's so hard for manufacturers to get it right when the standard was set 20 yrs ago. That goes for build quality too. I've owned mine for over 15 yrs now and find it hard to replace although I have used other units that were beautifully executed but not quite as functionally flexible.

I called pyramid audio in Texas to ask them their opinion on cap replacement. They're Mark Levinson service tech guy told me the number 32 preamp never had cap issues, and was designed very well from the beginning. He told me to leave it alone and enjoy it!
Thanks I will keep that in mind. I don't think it is an easy task anyway

I agree with the tech at Pyramid ... the 32's have lasted quite well as have a lot of their other gear. Back in 2011 I bought an already old combo of a No37 transport and a 360s dac ... used them almost everyday for almost 5 years then got the DSD bug and upgraded but they never missed a beat and their new owner is still using them often. If you love the sound of the 32 then just find one that is in great condition and you should be good! Good Luck!
