A Beautiful Pair of Marantz Integrated Amplifiers 

I was able to spend all of Sunday in the lab finishing up a few projects.  None of the work was extraordinary but by the end of the day I had completed a pair of integrated amplifiers.

How sweet do these two models look, all dressed out in their Walnut Cabinets.
