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