Cleaning a Marantz 1030 prior to starting a rebuild.

When I thought about doing this video, I thought I would edit and show it in a high speed format.   It turned out that the unedited video is only 5:30 minutes long.  That's the actual time it took to clean this integrated amplifier.

This simple process, using a brush with a vacuum cleans the amplifier well enough to start the rebuild.  More cleaning will take place as I rebuild each section, but for starters it's plenty clean enough.

If you look at the pictures in the photo gallery, make sure to look at the original pictures when this amplifier was so dirty and the pictures of what it's like after the cleaning.
