The Marantz 2325 came out around 1974 with a list price of $799.95. It was discontinued some time around 1976. It produced 125 watts per channel into 8 ohms. This particular unit has the WC-43 walnut case. I believe the WC-123 case also fit this model. The 2325 weighs just under 50 pounds. It was Marantz’s flagship receiver at the time.
The 2325 had built in Dolby Noise Reduction and well as fantastic damping for tight bass.
If you’re looking to rebuild your Marantz 2325 there is a good reference site called Rebuild Your Marantz. Very detailed with lots of photos etc.
The 2325’s can sell from over $500 for a non-working parts unit to over $1400 for a fully restored unit.

HI I SEEN ON EBAY WHERE A 2325 DATED UP TO 1977 BUT THE 2330 WAS MADE THAT YEAR DOES ANY ONE KNOW WHEN 2325 STOPPED PRODUCTION AND 2330 STARTED AND ENDED.
I bought my 2325 in July of 1978 brand new, but it was a leftover. I paid 369.00 for it.
I bought mine in sept. 1976 and still use it today.
I bought my 2325 with walnut case July 1976. Had it ever since. Told several times by electronic repair stores to never sell it. Has been an outstanding component. Ran 4 JBL L100s off it for years. McIntosh would be replacement for it to drive 4 800 series B&Ws. Still have 2325 wrapped up after service performed. Told it still is in great working order after 45 years.
Did you sell your 2325?
Mine was recently stolen from my house while I was in the hospital. I live in Lewistown, PA. If anybody knows where it is or has any info on it, it would be greatly appreciated. It would have showed up between January – June of 2021.
My 2325 I bought for $800 in 1977. Still have it and use it every day. Drives a pair of AR-10pis rated at 225 watts continuous. Looks and works perfectly. A great receiver.
I bought mine me in 1975 at HJS Sound in New Haven, Indiana for $875. I had it recapped in 2017 at Circle Stereo in Austin Texas. I originally ran a pair of JBL L65 Jubal’s, then LX 55s, I know run a new pair of Klipsch Heresy IVs. I love the headroom and it sounds fantastic.
