    I have a Marantz 6370Q that is dead in the water.
    It needs some life put back into it.
    I wouldn't mind shipping it off to get it fixed (since it's not working), but I would hate to have a restored turntable shipped back to me. I've heard the horror stories....lol
    So I live in central Kentucky. About an hour from Louisville, and a half hour from Lexington.
    So does anyone know of someone that would do a restore on this jewel?

    So I tore into the Marantz. Sprayed Deoxit into the switches and worked them pretty good. Plugged it back up. Got a few seconds on the digital display.
    That's it. Sprayed the switches again.....nothing this time.
    Nothing is working now....nothing.
    The spindle spins freely, so it's not locked up.
    It was over my head, so It took it to a place in Louisville, Ky today. (Magnetic Tape Recorder)
    The guy there was happy to see it, he was a little bit excited. He seemed
    very knowledgeable.
    Bottom line is he going to do a diagnostic check on it ($50). The fee that I paid will go toward the repair.
    We agreed that if it was going to be under $250 just go ahead with the repair. If it went over that, he would call and we would discuss.
    I'll report back went I get some news. (Hopefully Good)
    He said it would be a 3 to 4 week turnaround.

    Heard nothing but good things about them. Friend of mine has used the quiet a bit and has always been satisfied.
