    Default I finally woke up my 70s.. (lots a pics)

    Before I had it running with the 3800 but the right channel is screwed up.. so I was just listening to the left.. It is the greatest thing I have ever heard.. God I wish I owned these.

    bummer... Maybe you could try heating the sticker up with a blow dryer first, the glue might loosen enough to peel it off.

    To get the sticker off, take a rag and spray some lighter fluid on it. Make sure that the rag is wet with it. Doesn't have to be dripping but soaked isn't a bad thing. Then take the wet rag and rub the sticker with the lighter fluid. Don't let it drip because the lighter fluid will take the painted knob information off of the fascia. Let the sticker soak in the lighter fluid for 10-20 minutes. You should then be able to peel it off. Go slowly though. The glue will not come off as easily but just rub it wil the lighter fluid and get off as much as you can. Let it dry and then go for rubbing alcohol. That should get rid of the glue. Acetone works real well but acetone will melt plastic and that would be bad.

    Nah.. Honestly after hearing the difference using the 3800 as a pre and then the onkyo, I would like nothing more than to give away that onyko just to have a working 3800. The Onkyo made the system sound so dead compared to the 3800...

    What I want to do is get a Marantz pre, and two 250 or 250m's, then bi-amp the 70s.. However, finding this stuff is not easy.

    Those Marantz pieces might be keepers, but you're not trying to drive anything with that plastic Sansui thing are you?

    Nah, its just sitting around.

    The Marantz gear isn't mine, but I wish it was. I am going to find a 250 and a pre if it kills me though. Currently I have my 70s bi-amped with the onkyo driving the highs and the 250m driving the lows.. it sounds totally amazing. However, I would love to have a Marantz 3800 as my pre and two 250m's for the 70s.. Then at some point upgrade the speakers.
