The Opus Discovery is an add-on made in 1985 for the ZX Spectrum – read more about the Opus Discovery here.
The original bridge rectifiers assembled from factory in a Opus Discovery system, are of poor quality.
With many users their Opus Discovery failed after adding a second Floppy disk drive, because the current drawn through these Bridge Rectifiers exceeded their maximum.
Many of the original bridge rectifiers bulge, and / or have visible melted plastic.
So it’s good as preventive maintenance of your Opus Discovery, to replace these bridge rectifiers, and also the old original electrolytic capacitors.
The kit comes with a printed copy of the latest version of the Opus Discovery Maintenance Manual (click).
