Recently, I have fixed and recapd this 2215B for a friend. It came in with a channel down, ended up being a dirty selector switch, easy troubleshooting and fix.

As protocol on a 40 year old unit, all electrolytic caps were replaced, this time I used a mix of Nichicon FG, KG and Elna SilmicII, the Marantz vibe is there in spades....

    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.
