Hi everyone! I recently bought, and had restored, a beautiful Marantz 2270 Silver Engraved receiver. The restoration was done fellow Audiokarma member Salbreth1. He did a phenomenal job. This purchase was by accident. I knew it was an engraved 2270 due to the serial number being between 1,000 and 5,000 but I did not expect it to arrive with the Silver face plate. From experience you only see a few 2270 silver engraved models from time to time. A recent Silver engraved face plate only sold for around $300 on E-Bay. My question is out of the 4,000 total engraved 2270 receivers made, how many were made with the silver engraved finish? They appear to be very rare within the 4,000 total made 2270 engraved units. The engraved 2270's themselves were very rare. Consider that only 4,000 2270 engraved receivers were produced (4.7%) out of a total 2270 model production run of 84,854. I have also seen two types of Silver engraved face plates. Mine has a high gloss finish. The other Silver engraved face plate I have seen in person was a very coarse looking finish. This coarse finish resembles units with a serial number just above the 5,000 mark. My Silver engraved 2270 has serial #3771. The following serial numbers (#479, #1558, #1521 and #3321) are all 2270 champagne engraved receivers that I own, sold or have recently been on E-Bay. So Marantz 2270 engraved owners lets try and and combine some information on this question. If you have a Silver or Champagne engraved 2270 provide your serial number so maybe an accurate database can be established on this very rare receiver!!! Also Silver engraved owners indicate a glossy or coarse looking finish. In the photos, the left picture is a 2270 with the glossy Silver finish and on the right is the Champagne 2270. I feel very lucky to have been able to buy both units, they are still stunning after all these years!!! Thank everyone in advance for their help.
