Recommended Posts

hi there

i was just shopping around where i found an old receiver from marantz

its the vintage model 2270 tuner receiver

the shopkeeper for asking Rs 7000 , thats around 87 dollars

the front panel looked dusty but still manageable

i was thinking of buying it

but he said it requires a couple of things to be worked out perhaps

and was not ready to serve yet

can anyone tell how these wud sound with my rf3s

wud its sound outperform the newer amplifiers from brands like yamaha and denon of its original price range ???

or shud i just ignore it

and move on to some other warmer and musical newer stuff

I had a Marantz 2265 back in the day and it was a very sweet sounding receiver with plenty of power to boot.

The price sounds reasonable, just be ready to spend some cash for repair and updates, something that old needs at least the capacitors replaced after all these years.

hmmm

and wot speakers did u play with that 2265?

my question now takes a new turn plz dont mind

but how wud this 2270 or urs 2265 compare to a quad 303 pre power amp of the same era

im currently using it with klipsch

maybe its too neutral for me

marantz with klipsch cud probably excite me

do u think so ?

any ideas

Altec Valencia 846a

Never heard any Quad equipment so i could not compare the two

Many here run Marantz and seem happy, i always liked the warm Marantz sound.

i love the old marantz stuff- The bad news is the repair bills. Be prepared to pay out the nose to get a refirb- There is one guy who the forum members use who does a killer job- once repaired toy will have one sweet amp but the cost could turn into 600.00+

Several people here have had restorations done - ask around and check old threads
