Default Re: Marantz SR4200 soak testing (!)

On finding myself redundant from the music industry, with only a couple of years to retirement, I took a job working for a small AV company. One of my first jobs was the overhaul of a large audio mixing console which looked like it had been stored in a coal pit.


After sorting out the hundreds of dry joints and cleaning/relubricating potentiometers, I had a working unit which was nice and clean; but the hundreds of coloured knobs were in a right state. They went home with me that night, where I put them in a wash bag and put them in the washer.

The next day, the boss could not believe how well the unit had cleaned up; he was convinced I had found a new set of knobs for it.
