    I have a nice 2230 that was recapped by our own patfont. Great sounding receiver that sounds better than new, and should stay that way for a long time.

    Just cleaned up a really dirty 1060 I got off clist. These units are super sleek, might end up using it as a preamp.

    Did a few searches on AK in regards to cleaning and did a few things:

    • Soaked all knobs in simple green / water solution overnight, ratio approximately 1 simple green to 15/20? water
    • Did first cleaning of faceplate with same simple green concoction and used an old toothbrush to scrub it, also scrubbed knobs with toothbrush
    • Final faceplate cleaning was with mr clean magic eraser dipped in a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol, then rubbed away.
    • Rinsed off faceplate and dried, good as new.

    Nice job Ernst! As mentioned, check out a product called "magic eraser" by Mr Clean. Used carefully it works very well.

    Dear friends,
    This is my first post in this wonderful forum.
    I am from Bombay, India and a proud owner of lovely Marantz 1060.
    I have purchased this amp three years ago in perfect working condition. Apart from some crackling noise ( vanished after pot cleaning ) was nothing major problem arised till yesterday. Today I have connected with my saba two way speakers ( 5 ohms) after a month gap. After one hour playing suddenly a big strange distortion sound came from both speakers. I immediately switched off the amp. After few minutes I connected with other different speakers. Huge distortion sound came from those speakers too when I switched on.

    I removed the bottom plate of the amp and checked the caps and found that the orange Square size suppression capasiter ( connected to on/off switch) is looks swallown condition
    As I did not have any technical knowledge it is very difficult to understand what happened to my lovely amp.
    Pls guide me to rectify the fault and start to sing again. Your kind help will be much appreciated.
    Regards,
    shafic
