Both rated at 30 watts per channel, these 2 beauties are finally here!
The Sony required 3 trips to the repair shop before it sounded fantastic, due to improperly rated replacement parts in previous repairs, and the smoke from the right side of the case was disconcerting. All is good now, and this tank of an amp, original Sony Esprit sounds awesome.
I've had Marantz 2230s before, but not in years. It's a beautiful classic, and the one that's here is a great example.
I'll have pictures of both soon.
