    I know Marantz offered a wood case for these. Can anyone help me with the official Marantz part number please?

    From what I can find on ebay, looks like the WC 23 WC 123 will fit. Not 100% certain.

    I think the WC-123 is the 3-piece cabinet for the 2330/2325/4300/4400 size models, and there is no WC-23, only a WC-24, which is the one-piece for the 2330/2325 etc.. You're looking for the WC-124, which, to my knowledge is the only case Marantz officially offered for the "big-boys" (2385, 2500, and 2600). It's also 3-piece case, with LOTS of room for the flow-through ventilation required by these high-powered models. I've seen one-piece cases for these receivers as well, but I believe they're all aftermarket.

    There is also a one piece for the 2385 and 2500.

    I've seen damn good one piece Marantz-style cases. Had one myself on a 2600 I stupidly sold least year.

    EDIT ADD: Mine was a repro.

    If you would be so kind and leave the measurements in this thread so others may follow your footsteps to make their own.:)
    Thank you.
