Always wanted one of these and my good buddy slowpat tipped me off to this one for sale locally but at a price that a restored unit in top shape would command. No picture in the ad either but I shot the seller an offer after a quick picture that he sent me only showing the face and I could see a lamp out so it was clearly unrestored original. Fast forward to yesterday I get an email from the seller weeks later saying he was never going to restore it and if I wanted it I could have it for a little more than my offer. I did at the time show him some pictures of my other Marantz receivers I have restored and he did like that a lot since it was his fathers and that was one of the reasons he called me because I will get it back to its former glory. He even brought it over for me to hook up and test Well it was a mess and the controls were so dirty it was hard to test which worked in my favor of course so I got a better deal but the price was fair to both of us. The relay clicked though so I felt good taking the chance on it. A little after then the before. Got some LED's in it since I had them already and working on the cap list for it. After some control cleaning and some easy adjustments it is in good shape mechanically. Noticed it has two different types of output transistors; one quad with black writing and the other quad is red. Just curious if it would have come from the factory that way, no issues and both channels sound exactly the same. Don't know if it was a warranty thing or the factory using what it had? From the little testing I have done it is a powerful beast! It will easily humble my 2325. Decades of grime and dirt. It is cleaning up pretty good though.
