Some audiophiles recommend slowly
upping the voltage on old tube gear.
I had some old McIntosh C20 and MC30
pre-amp/amp blocks and that's what was
suggested to me.
I just went ahead and plugged them in,
connected, and they were fine.
The things to be concerned about on your
recorder are the Capacitors , all rubber belts,
and the rubber pinch rollers for the capstans.
Your recorder may be Solid State and not Vacuum
Tube style. Regardless, I always have a can of De-Oxit
on hand for cleaning potentiometers,etc. Just make sure
to avoid spraying the pinch rollers/belts to avoid tape
contamination and slippage.
You have a fine project there.
