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....

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.
