Arrow retro marantz

taking a break from the chip amps. i had this marantz receiver that had a dead tuner the voltage regulator blew and took the tuner out. so chuck it or save the amp i cannot put my finger on it
but the sound of this old amp is great. im thinking on making a case out of old anteak wood. with a aluminum face plate and 2 big
vu meters for the front and some type of screen for the top and bottom

think it would look good retro like

the caps are geting replaced
its a 60watt amp

I inherited a 1530 from my grandfather and it is very smooth. Do not junk the faceplates or knobs.... they will fetch some money from the people who need to fix or restore these old units.
