Awesome! Have one identical to it :)  

And, the sound from these is excellent. Got a VTA ST-60 tube amp a year ago to replace it ... haha; sold the tube amp and kept the Marantz 1060 :D

Thanks Emile.  One of the nice things about this amp is the ability to switch in two sets of speakers simultaneously, along with it's excellent sound.

Nice Piece Jim.  I'm sure you won't have it long.  Off topic, but have you used the restoration company a lot and would you recommend them to go through and freshen up my Sansui 8080?

Yes Pete, I have used them quite a bit in the last year.  The owner is a perfectionist and highly skilled. He's got a great shop.  You are welcome to call him and talk, and be sure to tell him I referred you.  They are only open on Friday and Saturday from noon to 8PM, the rest of the week he is working on units in the queue.  He is a vintage JBL aficionado, and is also particularly fond of vintage Fisher and HH Scott units, but I'm sure he would work on your Sansui.  Prices are very reasonable.

I have a old buddy from High School days who used to custom make hardwood cases, in the wood of your choice, very reasonably & quickly for the older Marantz, Scott and Fisher Amps. All I had to do was provide him with the case measurements or model number after the first few. I feel really lucky to own several of his cases on my Scott, Fisher and Marantz amps/receivers. He is an electrical engineer by training and wood working was his hobby.

 

He is about to retire back to an acreage in Alberta from Washington via Montana, but not to Calgary. He sold all of his wood shop equipment off before moving from western Washington to western Montana. As he is a instrumentation wizard he can fix anything I've ever owned in Audio Equipment tube or solid state and like most good engineers meticulously. He just does not feel the need to do this kind of work. I plan to help him build a new shop at his acreage here probably in the spring.

 

I'm hoping he decides to work on audio equipment in it but I have not asked him what he is planning. Most shoemakers don't like to work with leather as a hobby and I guess most instrumentation engineers avoid work too similar to their day job.

Congrats!  Seriously considering selling "my" Marantz 1060 ... very nice unit, even have the plastic face protector plate ... but, not using it anymore ... just checking to see if there is any interest.  If so, will of course start a separate posting :D Trying to post a pic ... but now it says "only allowed to upload 870kB" :(  OK; crunched it more ...
