This is the Marantz 4270 Quadraphonic 4 channel receiver or Quadradial as they called it. It of course would also play in 2 channel stereo. It was one of Marantz's top of the line quad receivers in its day. It was introduced in 1974 and retailed at around $700.00. It has 8 sets of speaker connections and puts out 70 watts per channel in stereo and 25 watts per channel in quad mode. It weighs just over 40 pounds.

The Marantz 4270 also uses the WC-22 wood case. The wood case makes quite a difference in the final sale price of these units these days. A fully restored, fine condition 4270 with wood case recently sold for $760.00. Without the wood case and unrestored they will typically sell for $175 to $400 depending upon their condition.
