That's an impressive stack buddy! Did you just get the 2238?

Yup yesterday the seller and I was fianlly able to meet. Ive tried to get it the last couple times it was posted but didnt have any money. I'd like to find a 4300, 2270, 2275 and a clean 4270 now.

Wait.  You're going to corner the market in Oregon on Marantz and basically get one of each model?  Good for you...............don't have to worry about me disrupting your Marantz monopoly bud.  I'll actually be looking for them for you. 

 

Does Doug still have that hugely expensive one still?

My Technics SU-7300K (1976-7) came yesterday. This has to be the best condition I've seen yet with a vintage amp. It could have come straight from the factory! Immaculate inside and out. The sound is different from my Technics SU-V3 which I rate very highly. The 7300 is more refined and balanced, where as the later V3 is more fun sounding with a slight bass and top end emphasis. Best thing is it only cost me £50! Crazy!!

 

Anyways, heres some picy's

hahaha. There's really been none posted this year on CL for some reason well except by that nutty expensive place in beaverton... And yes the 2325 I believe so but at $999 I don't think anyone is gonna touch it but hey someone actually bought that 2275 at $850 so I guess some one with money to burn will walk in there and buy it sometime... they are probably on consignment though. He also had a Kenwood KA-8300 I wanted to get but I think it's gone :( 

this is more nuts another 2325. What's with these asinine prices??? http://portland.craigslist.org/clk/ele/4346734424.html

I tried to get a mint 4270 that was posted on CL in Vancouver in November last year he wanted $300 for it and it had the wood case. I pleaded with him to let me get it but someone else was coming :(

I'm seeing quite a few vintage on CL actually since the Xmas season emptied the inventory. Not Marantz but lots of other interesting stuff. I got the Yamaha R700 a couple weeks ago from that lingerie place in Vancouver. He has a Toshiba 7500 which looks larger than a Pioneer 1280 if you can believe it!

Nice!! Congrats on finally receiving it.

I've got a "R" series Yamaha from the early 80's as well. It's an R2000 rated at 150wpc. I bought it brand new along with a bunch of other classic pieces. They sound great with my JBL L112's. The only thing I've had to do is replace the STK's once. I also have a Fisher CA880 integrated. Another STK based unit. I've got a line on a McIntosh MC2500/C33 duo. Hopefully it all comes to fruition.

So I end up buying the marantz 1152dc and hope that I didn't waste my money with it.  I was wondering if I want to add a sub to a speaker setup amp my the marantz is that possible.
