Default Re: Marantz SR4200 soak testing (!)

In times-past I was involved with running a few thousand PCs for a large financial institution.

"Tea/coffee-with-milk in the keyboard" was a regular issue. Back then a new genuine IBM Model-M keyboard cost 100+ so we'd save up the beverage-contaminated keyboards and - out-of-hours friday night - stick them through a 'cool' cycle in one of the staff-restaurant's industrial dishwashers, using a squib of an industrial detergent called 'MS202', then stack them over the outlets of the open-plan-office's airconditioning outputs for the rest of the weekend.

We got around an 80% recovery-rate. But we still billed the clients for a new keyboard....!
