FOR SALE: Marantz 1300DC Integrated Amplifier, Full Restoration!
This is the Marantz Holy Grail of Integrated amplifiers. Very rare and highly sought after by serious vintage audio collectors.
This will probably be the only one to cross my bench. I spent countless hours just researching what the experts recommend should be done when restoring this piece.
Then I methodically went through it recapping,removing the glue,replacing epoxy diodes,replaced the relay. All transistors mounted on a heat sink had old thermal compound removed and new added. The original outputs had Berquist sil pads added.
This was a total recap of all electrolytic caps including the four big power supply caps. The original power supply caps were 10,000uf. The new caps are Nichicon Gold Tune 15,000uf,lug. The best caps you can buy and a perfect fit.These caps alone cost $200.00. The rest of the caps I used are Nichicon Muze,KL,KW,PW,FG and TVX axials. Also used some Wima stacked film caps.
Amp section set to specs. All controls properly cleaned and lubed.
This unit is not an easy piece to work on particularly the front end that houses the pre amp section.Very time consuming.
This unit has been fully tested. Being a complex piece it has no shortage of functions that need to be tested.
Cosmetics are very nice. But there are a few marks here and there. The faceplate has a couple of small scratches but don't really jump out at you as it is a very busy face plate. Some light scuffs on a few knobs,but hard to see. One mark on the case on the right side near the back side screw.
Also at the back I noticed a piece of the bottom switched outlet missing. The outlet works fine. The new owner might never have noticed it but I believe in full disclosure.
Regarding shipping it be very close to Canada Post's weight limit so may end up going via courier.
Note I am a pro shipper. See my feedback!
Go the above link to see this unit working!
I will provide my phone # to serious buyers. I prefer to chat about my work and meet the new owner.
I also provide a short video of the unit taken just before packing to the new owner.
I prefer EMT.
