New Marantz photos
The day after winter solstice the light faded quickly so the 1152Dc photos are blurry and will be redone tomorrow. Here are the 1122DC integrated amp and 2120 tuner. This last style of vintage Marantz is growing on me. I always liked the integrateds with anodized black inset panels, like the 1150 and 1070, but the massive chunkiness of these, especially the double thick centre section (the second aluminum piece is secured from the back with screws).
If I haven't said it before, I'll tell you now that I'm not a fan of the radio as a musical medium (though I love my CBC News and As It Happens). However, a really good tuner, like the Marantz 2120 or Sansui TU-9500 make it much more rewarding.
