I’d wait until The temperature cools. Also, do you really need to recap your Kenwood decks? Are the caps showing any sign of stress? If they are currently working well, I’d leave alone until you have a problem. I am happily using a 1980’s Denon DP-80 direct drive and it’s going well. I won’t touch it until something goes wrong.

I would prioritise the crossover rebuild of your Sextets. External mounting, a quality rewire and careful choice of components can bring a very big improvement to sound. Well worth the effort.

Good to hear that Angela is getting better.
