Marantz 2500 Values

Marantz 2500 Sale

 

I was recently looking at Marantz receivers recently and noticed one on eBay that was listed for $9000. Yes, $9000.00. It is a Marantz 2600 which is of course very hard to find and they don't come up for sale very often. This particular unit is completely mint and fully restored. Still, $9000 is a lot to drop on a vintage receiver. It got me wondering what the Marantz 2500 sells for nowadays so I jumped on eBay and did a little research.

 

Marantz 2500 Values

 

Four Marantz 2500 receivers actually sold in July on eBay. The lowest priced unit sold for $750.00 and, while it was in working condition it did have some significant cosmetic flaws. The faceplate had quite a few nicks and scuffs and the tuning wheel look to have rust along the edge. It was also listed as a pick up only with no shipping available which definitely hurts the value.

Another 2500 sold for $1699.00. It had been partially tested and was fairly clean but did have some faceplate wear. All the auction pictures were blurry so it was difficult to tell the true condition of the receiver which probably hurt its value.

Next up was a pretty clean 2500 with the original box. It, too, was only partially tested and "worked" so the buyer was taking some risk. The unit sold for $1782.00.

At the top of the heap was a Marantz 2500 that was in mint condition and functioned perfectly. It also had the original box. It sold for $2850.00. Here's the seller's description:

 

I have two of these monster receivers. The receiver I have been using is the multi voltage one. This one is my back up American receiver that rarely saw any play time.

RARELY WILL YOU FIND A RECEIVER IN THIS CONDITION!
SPECTACULAR CONDITION!
LITTLE USAGE!
OCCASIONALLY IT WAS TAKEN OUT OF THE BOX TO CHECK IT'S FUNCTIONALITY!
THE POTENTIOMETERS HAVE BEEN CLEANED AND LUBED TWICE IN THE PREVIOUS YEARS!
NOTHING HAS EVER BEEN REPLACED!
EVERYTHING IS ORIGINAL!
ALL FUNCTIONS WORK AS THEY SHOULD!
NO DINGS OR DENTS!
SPOTLESS INTERIOR!
ORIGINAL STYROFOAM INSERTS!
ORIGINAL BOX!

Quite a description. The pictures were excellent as well and included a pic of the inside which was extremely clean. I would think that at this time this would be around the top end price for a Marantz 2500. So, if you don't want to spend $9000.00 on a Marantz 2600 perhaps you should consider picking up a nice 2500 for a lot less.

Hi I bought that marantz 2500 in your artcle. It is 10 out of 10 cosmetics and no time on it. It is at a profesional tech’s as I write this. I will have to spend $1000 to get it back to factory specs.All vintage receivers parts go bad after so many years even in perfect storage and no time on them.So when you buy one keep this in mind. Speaker crossovers are the same way(20 yrs max)just had my klipsch cornwall 2’s rebuilt. I have marantz 2500-3 kenwood kr 9050’s very good receivers and a kenwood kr 9600 with trio-ta 200 makes it 200 wpc.

Wow! That’s an awesome Marantz. You just don’t see too many in that kind of condition any more. Once back to spec it will certainly be one of the best around!

My father recently passed away and he had a 2500. There is a little cosmetic work to be done and I can’t find the box. The thing weighs a ton! What should I do with it. I would like to sell it and would certainly ship it if the buyer helped out with the shipping.
Thanks
Lee

I have a Marantz 2500 for sale, it has been in a box (not original) for some years as we travel around and now that we are sorting thru stuff we decided to sell it. It probably needs tuned up and slight cleaning, the balance knob is missing and it may need a whole new one altogether, other than that looks good. Please contact me if interested smfrccp at gmail.con. Thank you!
