SOLD! Marantz 2245
UPDATE: It's always sad to say goodbye to a Marantz
It's the biggest Marantz receiver I've had to date, and much heavier than the 2235B I had last month. It looks beautiful, with all lights working, and sounds great. All controls work smoothly and quietly. It is in very good physical condition, but not mint. If you want to just look at a Marantz, this might not be the one for you, but I think it's a solid classic that will give years of pure listening pleasure. This model has preamp out/main in jacks. I tried the Marantz 2245 preamp section feeding the 130 watt/channel Carver Magnetic Field Receiver power amp section, driving the JBL L36s. Wow! The music sounds beautiful.
