Marantz 2220B

Marantz 2220B

This is the Marantz 2220B.  It was at the lower end of the Marantz offerings but still offered great quality manufacturing and sound. It’s rated at 20 watts per channel into 8 ohms.

These little receivers are great for someone just getting into vintage audio. They can be purchased for a reasonable amount and, once serviced, will last for years.

  1. Hi… I picked up one of these Marantz 2220B’s a few years ago and hooked it up and it works fine. It does have static in the knobs and I assume that it needs to be cleaned up and some parts replaced. I finally moved it to another part of my house out of the room where I keep my high end equipment. So I wanted service done to it and it seems difficult to find someone and when I do they quote me prices like $60-$80 service fee. Stating that the job in its entirety could cost me up to $250-$300. In your opinion isn’t that a little pricey or not?

    1. That’s been my experience as well. It’s usually $100-$125 for a basic servicing where I’m at. If bulbs need replaced or a cap or two replaced then the price will go up quickly. Especially for any work on the circuit boards. You can clean the potentiometers yourself fairly easily and that will take care of a lot of problems. There are quite a few online tutorials on how to do it.

      If you go the servicing route just make sure you find someone with a good reputation.
