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.

  1. The 22 series marantz receivers last two digits are rms wattage. I believe 2470 was a JBL model, and The 4230 is a quad receiver or 4 channel.

  2. I got pro ject carbon turntable and am about to purchase one of these to use with it. What additional pieces am I going to need to be set with a complete system? I was going to get an integrated vintage Marantz amp to make it easier on myself but I want want one of the 2270 volume and quality so I’m going with this. Am I going to have to find an amp? A pre amp? Anything else?

  3. The 2270 has a built in phono amp so you should be good. You can use a preamp if you want but you don’t need one. Not familiar with the pro-ject turntable but as long as it has RCA outputs you should be good.
