Just thought I would update this with my resolution for the audio issue.
Based upon a tech tip from a tv repair website, I resoldered a pair of surface mount ICs, IT05 and IT06 (under the shield) on the surround board. In the process, I cleaned the boards and reseated all of the connectors in the audio section.
Which one of the actions actually resolved the problem, I don't know. But, the set now performs very well. The video is fantastic. CRTs, even five year olds, can still stand up to anything out there.
I don't know how to break the news to my coworker that the set is working like new and it didn't cost the $800 that he had been quoted for repair. I have about $50 in it and maybe 4 hours of labor. The good news is that he had already replaced it and just wanted it moved out of the garage and never wanted to see it again.
