who is the seller?

random craigslist person?

 

Where are the scuffs?

How is the lettering?

 

any bent corners?

 

also i added a bit more info in my previous post.

I'd want the opportunity to check all the inputs and make sure they all work properly.

And i'd try to get them down a little bit just because.

It's on a popular auction site (don't buy it before I get a chance wink.gif )
The lettering is great, as is the metal face. There are some nicks on the sides and top.
The description states fully functional.
It just stood out because all the other Marantz recievers are very expensive from what I've seen.
I've allways wanted to hear a 22xx.

yeah

i dunno about that one.

I trust pretty much nobody on ebay.

And this guy is probably some storage locker buyer or something.  Pawn shop owner.  who knows.

The description screams i don't know anything about these things.

 

So you could get it and it could be great,

or you could get it and have nothing but problems.

And then either be stuck with it or stuck finding a tech to fix it for upwards of 250$

 

if you're close to a major metro area i'd start with that cities craigslist.

 

also it could be the lighting but it looks like there could possibly be damage or a bent top left corner of the faceplate.

 

Im just lucky enough to leave withing 30 miles of a serious marantz collector.

But he seems to be slowly raising his prices when he lets them go.

I'm not lucky enough for that sadly frown.gif I have had pretty good experiences with ebay. And if I don't take the gamble someone else will. I think I'm gonna go for it. I will keep you updated. Thank you for the info, wish me luck.

Good luck.

It'll probably be fine.

And you can always return it no matter what the buyer says if there is something that he conveniently left out.

I'd run down to radio shack or order a can of Deoxit while you're waiting on it to show up.

You'll likely need it at some point

I have Deoxit for the SX-580. I'm sure it will be fine...
post #6444 of 13424

I did recently find that I can also get Deoxit at my local guitar center.  Convenient if you need some quick.

My Harman/Kardon 630 Twin Powered. Puts out a great warm sound... Now I just need to manage to get the front lights to work angry_face.gif
