One of the most powerful receivers ever built by Marantz, and by far the best looking.
• Built-in oscilloscope
• The best looking tuning meter in the industry
• Produced from 1977 to 1980
• 330W into 4 ohms
• Two phono inputs
After the restoration was completed we set this up and had it playing in our large hard-to-fill shop, after our lab and bench testing. The musicality of the sound, especially the stereo separation, was incredible.
