Does anybody have any info on Marantz Prestige Series 1030 speakers? The only thing I can find is a guy just sold a set on Ebay for $50.00 the other day. I just refoamed the 10's and they sound not bad.

I just picked up a pair of Marantz Prestige 1230 today from a thrift for $25.00. I was also looking for info on them and came across this thread and a guy that sold a pair of 1030's for $50.00. My pair has 12'' woofers and also need to be refoamed.

The tweeter looks like it might be one of the highly regarded Philips tweeters. The blue front baffle looks pretty cool and reminds me of the JBL pro monitors.

They're OK. They are no DS or HD series, but they're not bad. Probably made after Ed May was out of the picture at Marantz...
