This is a Beautiful Example of the Classic Marantz 2270 Receiver in Excellent Working
Condition. Double Boxed for Safe Delivery with Manual.
This is the classic Marantz 2270 receiver in a beautiful wood case. Anyone familiar with vintage audio knows that Marantz built some of the best receivers of the time. And, actually, when restored, probably still stand up against the best out on the market today in terms of sound quality. The blue dial light is an easily recognized feature of most of the Marantz receivers. Sometimes the light will look a little green and that is because they used a type of vellum paper between the bulbs and the dial face. Over time the vellum gets old and brittle and can break apart or turn yellow causing the nice blue light to turn green. Marantz is also known for its horizontal wheel tuner as opposed to the more common tuning knob.
The Marantz 2270 is rated at 70 watts per channel in to 8 ohms. It measures roughly 17 x 14 x 5 inches and weighs about 40 pounds. It was manufactured from 1971 to 1976 and retailed at just under $550.00 and the WC-22 wood case was optional.

- THE HISTORY OF MARANTZ
- More than any other person, Saul Marantz defined premium home entertainment. Driven by his passion for music and his accomplishments as a classical guitarist – accomplishments that led to a close friendship with Andres Segovia – he was never satisfied with the “hi fi” equipment of his day. So he built better; first in...
- LINER NOTES
The 2270 is meant to be played loud. It’s ready for your disco party, your action flick explosions, or your death metal jam, but don’t worry about losing oomph and fidelity when turned down, as the loudness button (really a pre-set EQ curve) is there to give the appearance of a bigger sound at lower volumes. There really isn’t anything the 2270 can’t do, and you’ll be hard pressed to find such a deep and wide soundstage from anything modern without paying more than double this price.
