The 2270 was from a golf buddy and he had it sitting in his basement for many years. I offered to take it and refurb it to sell or to keep. To be completely honest, I'm not nearly as impressed by the Marantz as I hoped to be. This may not be the best time to form any opinions because my life happens to be insane right now with other stuff. Plus I've only got to listen to the 2270 for about 30 minutes with one pair of hp and one set of speakers.
Give me a day or two for more listening to draw some more accurate conclusions.
