If you're in the market for a truly unique and solidly built vintage stereo receiver, look no further than this offering from Revox. The B 285 weighs in at 33 pounds, is capable of outputing 70 watts of power (a very conservative rating), and looks like the inside of the spaceship from the late 70s.
In 1986, Chicago Tribune writer Rich Warren wrote, "Revox basically designed the B285 with dual philosophies: to offer the greatest possible control over the best possible sound quality. It succeeds admirably in both areas. You can find other receivers with competitive sound quality, and others such as those from JVC with almost as much control, but none with such a perfectly balanced combination."
Those sentiments are still relevant with the B 285. Its a delight to use and listen to. This one is in excellent operational condition. It has been gone through by a very qualified technician.
