2252b and a 5420 cassette deck
Very nice. I’ll bet they sound great. This is my office setup. My brother is a woodworker and is making me a walnut cabinet for the 5010B. I replaced the motor and belts on his Marantz 5010 deck, so he’s building the cabinet in return.
Just picked up another ST8 from Wellington NZ
Great forum my daily driver and my avatar my trusty Marantz 2245!!
a 2220b with the faceplate cover still on!
Trusty indeed i got my 2245 in the early 70's and its still going strong and is still my favorite receiver
Meh, this is the only Marantz that I have.
but it swings both ways
Nah.. it clips on the big drivers.
And a very cool one at that!
the receiver only puts out 17 watts per channel in 4x17 mode so you need pretty efficient speakers for it to drive them. Are you switching the power mode switch in the rear to 2x40 watts per channel with the bigger drivers that should drive some pretty decent speakers in stereo.
Yes, I only use the 2 x 40 setting. Don't get me wrong, I do like it and it does a decent job when I pair it up with the correct speakers. I have a couple of big Kenwoods that can handle the 15" Altecs that I am quite fond of. The Kenwoods get majority air time.
Had my 2238B on the bench today for a cleaning. Only the balance pot was a bit scratchy, but cleaned them all while it was apart. Now it sounds like 1978 all over again.
Setup a humble mono system in the garage tonight.
Ok-I finally got all my pieces put together.
Also got a
Wollensak 8trk player/recorder
First i want to say hi everyone here cause im new in this forum. Im fall in love with vintage audio when i was young but dont have a chance to own one. But now i can and here is my first marantz i have. Nothing done with this one yet and i will take this to some place for tech look asap.
Just replaced my Marantz 4400 vintage with the Marantz AV 7703 and added 2 Marantz MM7025 power amps. 170 watts per channel into 6 ohm. Klipsch KG 4 speakers with 2 subs the Difinitive Technologies Pro sub 1000 and SVS SB 2000. Man once tuned this system sounds amazing.
Looks like a killer set-up!
Sooooo whatcha doing with the 4400?
Thanks. I was the origional owner of the 4400 bought it while in Japan in 1974. I sold it for more than twice what I paid for it. Lol. It seems to be a very popular vintage reciever.
