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.

There was no Marantz 2275b. You may have been thinking of the 2285 and the 2285b.
Yes, you are correct. Fixed. Thank you!
The advertisement with the burned up Marantz was a 2270, not a 2275.
Read the whole, ad…it mentions the 2270 as the predecessor to the 2275
The 2275 is a legend. One of the very best audiophile grade vintage receivers on the market and a solid investment.
My first ex wife has my 2275. It was great.
Yes Jon d I’m married to your first wife.
It still sounds great. Would you like your first wife back. Hahahhaha
That’s some funny rt therre!
Thanks for the laugh. Wunny comments.
It would be interesting to learn the differences and advantages of the 2270 vs. the 2275 and expert opinions of these two models
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.
