This 1152 DC has had just one owner from new. I have just finished a comprehensive end-to-end overhaul on her. There is now nothing whatsoever for her new owner to do but sit back and enjoy the music!

As usual, I’ve used premium parts including period-accurate resistors, lab-grade capacitors and transistors that meet or exceed original spec. Output devices are factory original Marantz, a rare thing and one which contributes to the classic Marantz sound.
