Marantz 2270

Marantz 2270

 

This is the classic Marantz 2270 receiver in a beautiful wood case.  Anyone familiar with vintage audio knows that Marantz built some of the best receivers of the time. And, actually, when restored, probably still stand up against the best out on the market today in terms of sound quality. The blue dial light is an easily recognized feature of most of the Marantz receivers. Sometimes the light will look a little green and that is because they used a type of vellum paper between the bulbs and the dial face. Over time the vellum gets old and brittle and can break apart or turn yellow causing the nice blue light to turn green. Marantz is also known for its horizontal wheel tuner as opposed to the more common tuning knob.

The Marantz 2270 is rated at 70 watts per channel in to 8 ohms. It measures roughly 17 x 14 x 5 inches and weighs about 40 pounds. It was manufactured from 1971 to 1975 and retailed at just under $550.00 and the WC-22 wood case was optional.
