That is inspiring.   It's one thing to talk about "a few hours", it's quite another gettin' 'er done.   I also felt happy that I understood most of what you were saying.   That wouldn't have been true a year ago.   As I am working my way up the repair/restore food chain, I am actually seeing the light at the end of the tunnel (having the skill to do a complete recap of my Marantz 2230).   

Threads like yours help me to believe it is possible.   Thanks for sharing.

Wow - awesome work,  and a useful thread for future restoration attempts by others.  Must have been a unique moment when you listened to Rush-2112 on it for the first time after completing the job.   Congrats!

Thanks all.  We have been listening to it for a few hours now, what an incredible difference from before.  As I stated in the forum, the one channel cut out so I cleaned the relay to fix it.  He was not in a hurry to get it back, so next thing I know I have a box of caps, trnsistors, and diodes to replace.  Well worth the time I put into it.
