Marantz -2330 B

The Marantz 2330B was produced from 1977 through 1979 at the height of the audio craze. As you probably already know Marantz built some of the best receivers offered during that time. This particular unit put out 130 watts per channel into 8 ohms. It also featured:

  • A sensitive FM tuner
  • A very selective AM tuner
  • Low distortion preamplifier
  • Two direct coupled power amplifiers on a single chassis
  • Total harmonic distortion: 0.07%
  • Power bandwidth: 20 Hz to 20 kHz
  • Load impedance: 8 ohms
  • Damping factor: 60
  • Dimensions: 491 x 146 x 386mm
  • Weight: 22.5kg

An average 2330B will sell for around $400.00+ in decent working condition. $600-700 or more in very good working condition.

    1. You’re probably right Bryan. I have seen some 2330b’s sell for around $200 on eBay. They were not perfect receivers, had some issues and needed work. I just looked at some recent sales and see one that was “not working – parts only” sold for $355.00! So, I agree with your assessment and I’m going to change the price range. Thanks!

  1. I think the general consensus is that the 2330 might be slightly better sonically. It is also probably more rare than the 2330B. But, the differences may be minimal. Aesthetically they are different. The 2330 has the traditional black face and blue dial while the 2330B does not.

  2. I came here to verify the cost someone was asking for one of these antiquated pieces of equipment that cannot even come close to todays technology, and I see that P.T. Barnum was 100% correct: There damn sure is a FOOL born every day!

  3. 2330B for $200? Any units sold for that price on eBay are dead on arrival or certainly problematic guaranteed. No good to excellent quality 2330B unit would sell for less than $800. I am a professional engineer with 35+ years of experience in a multitude of engineering disciplines. Good luck finding a 2330B receiver for $200!

  4. Shows you how much they’ve gone up in value since that post was written in 2011. I’ll update the values.

  5. The 2330 had twice as many produced as the B, yet are much more rare. The faceplate and sound are only part of the difference. Lose one or both of the dual filter caps on the B, and see what that costs.
