Stereo Workshop in Eugene has a couple 2270 for sale when I was in there a week ago. I believe his price is about $400.

Yes I know he has two both with the wood cases. One is $400 and the slightly cleaner face one is $500. I offered $300 on the $400 a long time ago.

I won't go to that guy ever again not because of not taking my offer (lol) but he didn't know how to re-string my HK 670 and it was there about a month I came to pick it up he was reluctant to give it back because he wanted to charge me $250 PLUS he has a rediculous $45 fee and he didn't give that back for doing nothing.

Took it to Doug at Audio Specialties no BS fees and it cost $86 PLUS he re-capped the phono board and I didn't even know it needed it! I will be doing all my business with Doug until I learn to do it myself. I'm also going to take electronics courses at the CC hopefully.

For polishing the face on vintage steel, I've had good luck with Magic Erasure by Mr Clean. I just pull of all the knobs and switches, wet the erasure and start polishing till it's like new again.

smily_headphones1.gif I do the same thing except I use a wax and a microfiber cloth. The wax makes it so that finger prints aren't as much of an issue.

Is there anyrhing sexier? :P especially some of the Marantz with LEDs soooooo nice. The 2275 at audio specialties was miraculous with the blue the LEDs brought.

I think vintage gear lit up at night is even sexier than tubes.

Sexy indeed. While mine doesn't glow like that, here's my integrated sexiness, along with the HE-6 and speakers I'm enjoying at the moment :) I also have a little buddy who enjoys sharing the listening chair with me lol. Sorry for the shoddy pics, from the phone.

My TA2A doesn't seem to have consistent signal, even after deoxit in the jack. Is there something likely worn down the line? It is getting pretty old. :(

I wouldn't have argued with that until I saw the blue glow that some tubes give off. Then I changed my mind.

Did you only deoxit phone jack? You have to clean the volume, balance, tremble, bass control pots. Especially volume pot, Nak used low quality part here and it needs consistent clean. My SR-2a requires me to do this consistently. Hope this help.

Unfortunately I've discovered that its not in the best of shape... A lot of the screws were stripped, it appears that something spilled on it and rusted the transformer and something else, the rear input jacks took about an HOUR to scrub clean and those pre input jack jumpers? Took about another jour to clean IVE DISCOVERED that the face was jury rigged on with wire (somehow the screw things where you screw the face on to are all gone but three. Does anyone know what those are called so I can get the face back on and what type of screws I need also?) It also appears that this thing fell because the whole front chassis is bent and who ever tried to fix it was STUPID. It sounds wonderful but this has proven to be a b**** to clean up and try and repair.

I've got the input jacks all cleaned up and so much grime gone but I don't know what to do about the face.

I'll pose some more pics what I need help with

What in the world is this inscribed on the face? I missed that when I was looking at it...



What are these in the top left corner called? I need three more to screw in the faceplate.
