Marantz 2285 B

Marantz 2285b


This is the classic Marantz 2285b. It is one of the more sought after Marantz receivers. Even though it's only listed at 85 watts per channel it has plenty of power to drive most any speakers. It featured DLB-1 dolby noise reduction as well.

It was offered from 1977 up until 1980 and retailed for around $670.00. It weighed in at just over 37 pounds. It has the following inputs:

  • Phono 1
  • Phono 2
  • Tape 1 In/Out
  • Tape 2 In/Out
  • Aux 1
  • Aux 2

As you can see from the inside picture these units were built like tanks and with a high level of quality.

Though not shown in these pictures the Marantz 2285 also came with an optional WC 22 wood case which gave it a fantastic sophisticated look. These receivers sell for quite a bit when restored. Recently a super clean 2285b that had been fully restored sold for $720.00 (5-9-2011). In average working condition they will sell for $300-$400+.

Another 2285B up for sale. In fair working order but would benefit from cap replacement and of course, a good thorough cleaning. I got it to do same but do not have time or funds now to pursue it.
