post #106 of 12346

not a good pic here but here's a quick pick of my kenwood kr-720 sitting on top of my sansui au-d7.

   gave it a nice polish and might put it up on craigslist or classifies here for possible trade of headphones. preferbly akg monitors hopefully(locally).

It is driving Dahlquist DQ-10s and sounds great.  Have some cases being built for the components right now.

This is when they went with the more powerful 7868 output tube and power increased to 24 wpc. The x100c was made between late 1964 and early 1965. The date code on my is 1964. The kx100 is the same as the x100b. The "k" signifies kit. The kx100 is the x100b in kit form and was a diy instead of being put together in the factory. The the only difference in the x100b(kx100)  and the x100c is the front face. They are the same internally. There is on small difference between the x100b and the kx100. The KX100 lacks the bias adjustment pot the x100b has. It uses a fixed resistor instead.




 

That is very good information, thanks! I'm glad I have the one that doesn't require biasing biggrin.gif

Anyone have a Marantz 2220B? There is one in my area for $95, should I jump on it?

Check over on Audiokarma.  I'm sure the marantz folks over there can give u a much better insight.  along with street market value.

the 22xx series are the best solid state receivers that Marantz made. that said, i believe the 2220 is at the bottom rung of the 22xx series sporting 20w a side @8ohms ofcos. though prices of Marantz have gone up lately (gee i wonder why with threads like this LOL), i still think that a tad high for that model. $50 would be fair value & anything more is to the eye of the beholder. also the condition would have a big say in the matter. if it were me, i'd rather pay more & have a fully functional mint unit than pay less & get stressed.

 

if it were me & i really like it  & the condition is good, i'd prolly go as high as $70 tops. but thats just me. as always YMMV

This 2220B is in my area so I won't be paying for shipping. Is $95 a good price then?

post #113 of 12346

I just got a few picture of the 2220B. It is in near mint condition and has the wood "box". All the knobs are straight too! The only repair that is need it the front lamps. I will have to do some research on how to do this. I think I am going to pick it up later this week.

I would say that's fair for a 20wpc marrantz.  If you can get it lower than all the better.

post #115 of 12346

I shouldn't push my luck, evidently there already is some interest. Still a good price. I don't have speakers to go with it, what would you guys recommend in the sub-$200 used range?

post #116 of 12346

yo its a sad cold rainy day out here in the wetcoast so i went shoppin. guess wot daddy brought home.....(hint:its the unit on top ;) )

yaaa its a baby (well maybe not so baby but more like a teeny bopper) Technics SA400 - my very 1st Technics of any vintage! havent had a chance to clean & deoxit all controls & switches (i find it could & often do effect the sound...by quite bit) so no conclusions as yet but listening to it now, its sounds very clean & flatter in the freq range compared with the 'Sui's atleast. but things mite change once its cleaned up though. 

 

only fly in the ointment is a missing toggle knob for the TAPE-REC control but i picked it up for a song & perhaps a quick 2step dance. i believe the SA-400 is a 40watter rms@8ohms. for 25 big ones, guess i cant complain too much.

for 95 bucks you can get a higher wpc kenwood,sansui,yamaha,hitachi or sony that will sound just as good or better then most marantz gear. it's a great receiver of frinkin course and probally decent price compare to how marantz sells nowadays. hell i saw a marantz 2270 on ebay sell for over 2000. bidding was crazy and most marantz out shine the famous monster pioneer sx1980 in price range and the pioneer is wimpy compared to the not well known Technics SA-1000 rated at 330wpc@8ohms which goes for far less than most marantz gear.

just saying you can do better for 100 bucks.
