Take heed those who dare to enter the Tower... For there is dark power. A power that can en-dower to make some cower..! Even make some de-flower! That my dear friends, is the power. (of the Dark Tower)

Not as vintage as a lot of your gear, but i picked up a Marantz SR-47 integrated amp and CD-52 SE for £40 for both. Need to clean them, the CD-52 needs a new CDM4 gear, but all works fine.

 

Will post other pics once cleaned

This goes so far that I refuse to audition a new component at dealer's if he does not cover that damn thing with CD or similar object...

Otherwise, yes, old plastic has to be treated extremely gently - one "look" too hard, and it breaks.

Well these lights go fantastic with this 2226B its like the style was made for LEDs.

its easy on the 2226B, I just need to find the correct lamp. The only thing I can find is on eBay and its from Canada It includes a white LED for the dial pointer and red for the stereo indicator.

I'm not looking forward to eventually changing the lights on my 4270 especially since the whole front of it on the inside is bent and the meters etc are off kilter. It appears at some point in its life it fell and not only bending the chassis in the front but also knocking off those two bottom damn spacers that the face screws into. I was able to repair the top but now the face kinda is like ( bulging in the middle. Sadly I cannot repair the bottom as its bent there on both sides and there's no way to get into the back of it without taking everything inside apart. I sure learned my lesson after that one to look inside before I buy it!

Sometimes, taking everything apart and unbending the metal isn't too bad. If you do it right, it'll look good as new. If you do it wrong.... whole can of worms. Same goes for cars.

That's an awesome looking set up. Congrats, those are some great speakers. I'm sure they probably sound even better than they look!!

I keep seeing a few silver faced units pop up on CL, but not in my local area. I need to find a home for a few other things first.
