    I have owned several Marantz amps over the years, but all BPC. This is my first Marantz of this vintage and I'm absolutely in love with it. The sound, the look, the feel, haha even the smell....

    I moved my JBL 4430 to the basement man cave last month. The room has it's acoustic challenges which i've been experimenting with, but the 2385 has already dethroned my Grant Fidelity Rita-880.

    Hopefully before Xmas, I'd like to bring out my Sansui G-8000 for a little friendly head to head competition.

    I prefer my Marantz 2500 to my Sansui G22000. I haven't listen to the Sansui in probably 9 years.

    Loving it man! So glad we could do a deal on this thing. You do realize you've become my (electronics) pusher man, right?

    2017-12-07 04.44.42.jpg First Marantz I bought was a 1060 a few years ago when wanting to get into vintage audio, now I have in my collection;
    A second 1060
    104 tuner
    140 Power Amplifier
    3200 Pre
    5010B Tape Deck
    2245 and a 2285B

    I'm not going to collect more, I've enough to last me a couple of lifetimes I think :)

    My mint inside out locally retail recent acquired Marantz 2265b stereo receiver! (component below front and rear pics now made at home).

    Only flaw dail pointer bulb when home by taxi proved to be blown. In the shop it stil worked DARN! Sotospeak ;-) And......tape 1 play switch button needs to be cleaned. As we all know, a common issue with these kind of typical Marantz fake Alps switches and buttons; even when they were only a few years old. But other then that perfect for a piece of old Marantz gear!

    Love the looks and sound and its still as new, thats why i bought this one. Not for its reliability cause they never were and thats why Marantz went bankrupt in 1984 (No offence Don Sr. sotospeak; although ur good old daddy Frits Philips etc. etc. etc. had to save your ass back then, didnt they.....haha).
    Enfin; memory lane thus! Next $$ less in my wallet for an orig. woodcase in good condition or i have one made like origional. Or even more tempting; try make one myself .

    O also got a Marantz 6100 TT. No pics course i only downpayed at same pawnshop. Will pay the rest/pick it up end this month course my wallet started leaking heavly when i bought and fully payed at same day this 2265b and a mac 2100 and some other gear you see! As a result a month full of $2,- CAD macbacons, noodle soup, cheap sirup Nescafe canned beans ravioli cocacola eggs pinabutter bananas and lots of canned tuna and bulk wholesale chunks of ham and spam ;-) . Thats the life of a hifi collector freak like me! Course sometimes beeing me really sucks you see. Damm you compulsive hifi addiction of mine and of others sotospeak. But other the that; All is fine and dandy in my pathetic but succesfull live more or less sotospeak according to my immaginairy sexy female hifi fairy living in my head, and thus helass not in my bed! But she is as crazy like i am so her comforting reasurence that all is fine and dandy is no garanty either. O well.......whatever ;-) In my head shes atleast good in bed, thus shes def. a keepert sotoagainspeak!

    Hey guys!

    Here's a Marantz 6370Q I picked up a could of weeks ago. This thing is MINT. It came with the original box, packing, and everything.

    The story I got from the original owner is that his brother bought it for him while he was in the service in Germany. The brother had it shipped to him, and he's had it ever since. It's lived in a box for the past 15 years. I just had to add some oil for the cue dampener and it was good to go.

    It even has the original shipping label to the store in Germany.

    Oh yeah. I've posted the front a number of times. Figured the back side is interesting and has been neglected. When I used to put it next to the 4100. There were even more smiles.
