this is my bedroom set up not as good as most i'v seen but it does the job very well for me.

Yeah, i've seen a few mods on the Marantz CD-52 on the internet, may have a look at some point. May even venture to re-cap the amp as they are quite old bits of kit, and new caps (nichicon probably) is always good.

40w per channel will be fine for the Mission 702e I shall be getting (rated 25-100w)

You got a bargain there bud. Those 52 SE normally go for about £60-80. 

 

Nevermind the mods... Use it as a transport and you will have instant high end :D (providing you have a capable dac)

Yeah, I bought it on a whim as it was cheap (£40 for CD-52 SE and SR-47) just need to replace CDM4 gear. The inside is still very clean and good condition. I only have a iFi iDAC which is USB only unfortunately.

But stock it sounds good as it is, CDs load very quickly and play fine. Will give it a good clean, any tips on cleaning the outer part?

Hey guys I just auditioned the burson soloist SL today and feel that it might be the right amp for me. I would need a DAC to pair with it. I have a budget of about 1000 USD , can anyone recommend me a DAC that will pair well with it ? I will be using it out of my laptop with a pair of Audeze LCD-2s.

Depending on how dirty a component is, sometimes I'll only use a baby wipe. They are ideal and of course ph neutral. 

 

However if its a big job, I use good old soap and water. Just washing up liquid in a small bowl of hot water (If it was some vintage aluminium I'd add some vinegar). Use a soft cloth dampened with the soapy water and gently rub and wipe dry at the same to stop the water building up and possibly getting inside. Cotton buds for corners etc. 

 

 

Always make sure its completely dry before switching it on again for risk of shorts. A hair dryer can come in handy here. 

 

Don't forget to post pics when your done. I love the look of those 52's. Classics! 

Or you could add em here :D

analogsurviver gives a nice demo of cleaning vintage gear with WD40 and a toothbrush in the vintage thread.

you do have to have a light touch due to the micrphonic tubes, but its not bad, and only last a short time,

but once the volume is set, sweet, sweet, dynamic music !
