    Shamed me into action.... And extreme action per usual on my part....

    Put a heat shield between them .... OF COPPER.... Hehehehehe..... Figured get some electrical shielding too.... Some... Copper is not great for magnetic shielding, but it does provides a ground plane....

    Use this to create a ground plane for under my DAC and Preamp as well.

    Do I hear a difference? OF COURSE I DO.... :p:king::crazy: And helps keep the aliens from invading my Model 9s.....

    Some pics of my 4430 and 4240. Getting ready recap the power supply board. Should be fun. Overall both systems are clean and still sound good.

    I just picked up a Marantz 2252B with a WC-122. It works very good. Just need to do some cleaning of the faceplate and polishing up of the wood. It's my first vintage receiver.

    Took some time but finally got my 2230 running right. Also got it swapped over to LEDs and replaced the yellowed diffuser paper.

    New to Marantz. Starting small.
    My former 1530, and current 2226b with Linn Index bookshelves. The 26 is fully redone, and is obviously LED, which I actually like (picture makes it look much brighter).
    It's sounds great with the little Linn's.

    Unless you need a lot of power, you might never need to upgrade that 2226B. A very nice sounding and great looking receiver. Seems to have more power than 26 X 2.

    I don't keep my components stacked this way however I just wanted a photo of some of my Marantz gear. I recently sold my 6200 and 2230 which use to be located on the other side of this room.
