MARANTZ 2235B RECEIVER
This was produced during the golden age of Marantz. Designed in Sunnyvale, California and built with legendary quality and craftsmanship in Japan, Marantz are the Cadillac of receivers. Awesome retro styling (all lights have been replaced), clean inside and out, warm, rich sound, and a muscular 35 watts per channel, this makes speakers sing!
It amazes me that with modern digital input sources (high bitrate mp3s, high end cd players) this vintage of equipment can sound cleaner and more dynamic than the designers could have even imagined 30 years before!
No modern home theatre receiver will sound nearly this musical.
