Just tell yourself - there must have been something wrong with it for that price! (probs had the bulbs glued in ha)

"Marantz 4270 for $300?" But hey brotha, there will always be deals out there, so don't kick yourself so hard.  I usually visit my local thrift store quite often and score big time at times.  I just picked up a super mint condition Pioneer sx-6000 for $25 yesterday at my local thrift store.  Can't believe how warm/crisp it sounds, it does great with my DT880 and my MD. Oh wait, all lights work too!

 

There are some people out there that don't know what the heck these vintage stereo's are all about (my grandpa gave it to me) so you can easily buy 'em for almost nothing.  On the other hand there are some people out there that knows very little about them (THE INTERNET SAYS SO) and want all the money for them :rolleyes:.  And there are the ones that buys and collects, deals vary with these dudes and sometimes I'll find some pretty good deals on CL.  Luck of the draw.

Is $100 good price for a Marantz 2226B? Looks near mint and fully functional.

I'd say so. I see them go for triple that sometimes. I don't know much about that unit though. Perhaps someone else can chime in on it's character.

I'm going to go take a look at it today. Hopefully it is as described. Says he is original owner and bought it when he was 17 in 1978! I've never heard a Marantz so I'm a bit excited!

I love my 2265B!

Yup take his hands off! Actually forget the hands, just take the amp and run - thats a great price if it is mint.

GO GO GO….  Hurry before it's gone!

 

Marantz 22xx series are warm sounding.  You won't be sorry if everything is functional.

Way to go! Looks great!

 

I know I love my 2226B. :smile:

post #12013 of 12980

Looks sexy.

post #12014 of 12980
Thanks! Hopefully I can sit down and take a good listen tonight and take some better pics. I wonder if it will be a good match with my HPM-60s...
post #12015 of 12980

The 2265B always sounded great with the 100s. I would be inclined to think the 60s would sound good.
