    Rosewood cabinet. Bringing it back to life after a good deoxit douce, use "Genuine Old English Scratch Cover." Had it forever, so hope you can still get it. I have 8 oz liquid.

    OK I'm back in town so here's my pics. Just got this fairly recently and these pics represent the condition
    when I picked it up. Friday it goes to the tech for a good thorough cleaning, check up and any adjustments/service
    is necessary to bring it back to spec and provide reliability. It does have metal vents.
    Also sticking in a couple shots of my 2 other big boys. Mostly because I couldn't resist.

    SN# 01946, I traded a Marantz 2325 to local dealer in early 80's for used unit. The Marantz had some preamp issues that the dealer had just fixed when I spied the CR-3020 sitting in his showroom. He had taken it in on trade and wasn't sure how to display it because it was too big for his shelving. I told him that the Marantz would fit better on his shelf and that I'd take it off his hands. I think that I had to chip in an additional $50, been mine ever since. Restored by DrAudio.

    Looks more like Macassar ebony like the NS-1000's.

    Worked
    Worked fine for me. Rosewood is dark. Try a small area out of sight. Then decide.
