Just arrived: Marantz Model Twenty Six

14 gorgeous watts per channel, almost 40 years old. WOW! this is amazing! It's in very good condition, one screw (out of 2 on the faceplate) is bad (turned to mush in one try with the correct screwdriver) and will have to be tapped out so I can clean the faceplate and pots. It sounds really good, driving the Corals, the Mirage 650s and a new (old) pair of Altecs from 1971, that I'll tell you about tomorrow.

Also arrived today: a beautiful and great sounding Pioneer SX-737. Pictures and discussion to follow.

I promised a design analysis of the Marantz 2285B and it is coming
