    Pugs are so cute! Fishing buddy of mine had some and he warned me not to squeeze them too hard when you are cuddling them because there eyes would pop out of their sockets (which would be horrible AND hilarious). Is that true?

    That Marantz looks like it was in a vehicle accident, and a bad one at that!

    Is there any info as to how it got that damaged?
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    That's what Acoustic Research RCA's will do to quality gear...

    OR

    That's what happens when you ask your wife about the possibility of a 3rd occupant in bed...

    Dealers choice.

    I'm thinkin' long-range dumpster distance and accuracy toss competition, followed up by the front end loader trash remodeling service offered at most landfills and transfer stations (at least in New England).

    Fixable. May never look nice again, but there is a chance, albeit slight, That you could make it at least work.
    I say good luck to whoever may decide to try. :)

    I think the vintage Marantz ad posted by @mhardy6647 in the Cincinnati thread implies that the receiver in question is probably still 100% functional.

    Good point, if that Marantz could survive being burned and then falling two stories twice, why couldn’t this one survive whatever happened to it?
