Marantz 2275 Ad

The Marantz 2275 was the focus of an interesting Marantz ad campaign that ran in Stereo Review.  The ad showed a burned 2270 that the owner claimed had been recovered from the charred remains of his home after a house fire. After replacing the power cord the 2270 allegedly worked perfectly.  Of course, some anti-Marantz types began insinuating that it was actually the 2270 that started the fire in the first place.

  1. The 2275 is a legend. One of the very best audiophile grade vintage receivers on the market and a solid investment.

  2. It would be interesting to learn the differences and advantages of the 2270 vs. the 2275 and expert opinions of these two models

  3. I bought a 2275 back in May 2020 on eBay from a vendor in Poland. Cost me around £700, if memory serves. Supposedly working properly, but turned out that there was distortion on the right channel. I then had my local service chap work his magic on it. The service cost me around £300, but boy was it worth it! And considering what they now go for on eBay, if you can find one…

    It’s the heart of what I term my vintage set up, which comprises 1970s and 1980s equipment, and it is really good, with a great phono input.

    Back in the 1970s, I had a Marantz 4270 quadradial receiver, which I bought new. Took it to Canada with me and then to Belfast, where I sold it to a friend. It was a great receiver, and I would imagine that the 2270 would be very similar, but obviously two channel only. Haven’t heard one though, so can’t compare to the 2275. I think the latter would be better though.

  4. have a marantz 2275 receiver bought new in 1975 never used very much put back in original box brought it out last week to see if it still works and is working great cleaned controls with deoxitd5 the multipath hi blend one of the push buttons will not stay in does any one know what the problem could be

    1. No problem at all. That button is not supposed to stay depressed. You hold it down while fine tuning with your antenna.
