I'm trying to get a better understanding in all this.... so how does :tongue_smile: hypnosis work again?!

 

 

That's a stunning achievement, moodyrn!

Appreciate the compliment SO. I guess I'm glad Terry had a 3 month waiting period now. If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't have done it. Especially given the price and how well regarded he is for being the mac guru. So I was able to pick out my own caps, and do the main filter caps(which he didn't include) for less than 100.00 in parts. 

 

I must admit how nervous I was at first. One bad move could have been disastrous. Then I would have been kicking myself for not just waiting the 3 months. But I have replaced caps and other pcb parts before, just not on this scale(which is still not as daunting as a monster receiver). But I'm glad it's now done and over with. And thankfully, I shouldn't have to worry about any problems for years to come while looking good at the same time.:o

All cleaned up. I shall have to put LED's in there and get some Deoxit tomorrow to clean the scratchy volume control and polish the rear jacks. 

Let me just say that this little receivers sounds damn excellent. I was certainly surprised.

Sounds like it's true about it being one of the better marantz. Congrats.

What more can one say... They are in a class of their own! Great work.

Lovely Marantz, I've got the younger nephew (2216b) and it sounds fab too, so I'd imagine that that sounds very good indeed!

Nice work again, Moody. That truly looks great.

Nice work again, Moody. That truly looks great.

 

I have also been afflicted with this problem.  In fact I have a stack of them on my workbench that have been pulled from some of the receivers I have worked on, just because they look cool.

Lol, thanks guys. The funny thing is, the stock ones still tested good. But I saw a pic of another one with those large blue filter caps and knew I had to have them. They were the first thing I replace just to see if there would be any difference sonically. It could just be in my head, but I could swear the base tightened up a little. But if it is in my head, I still love seeing those large blue monsters every time I walk by it. And they go good with the blue meters too.:D
