This is by far the cleanest Model Nineteen to come into our shop. The faceplate is immaculate, the dial glass is super clean, and the knobs have no signs of use!

Considered one of the best, if not *the* best receivers ever made. Available only from 1973 - 1974.

The side cover and rear chassis are also extremely clean, and the top cover has a few faint thin scratches barely visible. It could be re-painted if desired.

All bulbs are present, working, and bright; although these Marantz pieces don't really shine until the lights are lowered. This is by far the coolest backlighting in the vintage world.

The built in scope is bright, sharp, and clear, and showing little signs of use.

We cleaned the controls and ensured everything is working.

We also have an aftermarket wooden case available separately. Please inquire if interested.

Please see our photos or the linked manual below for full technical specifications.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Receivers:

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure there are no signs of stress or aging. Capacitors are checked for telltale sings of bulging or leaking, resistors are checked for signs of overheating or cracking, and transistors are checked for signs of stress or damage.

We then power up the unit carefully and run a simple 1k sine wave while monitoring the output on an oscilloscope for signs of distortion or noise. Finally, we run the receiver to its full rated power into the appropriate resistive load provided by our Sencore amplifier tester. If there is an issue, it will usually be noticeable at this point. If everything reads clean, we will often test for THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) measured by our Keithley distortion meter, and compare it against the original manufacturers specifications. The receiver then remains powered on to "burn in" on our test bench for a few hours to make sure there are no heat related issues. If there are balanced inputs available they will be also be tested.

Then the tuner section is thoroughly tested in our lab utilizing our professional Sencore SG80 FM Generator, which allows us to generate a reference FM signal of any frequency and amplitude, and then measure the resulting tuner output on our Sencore PR81 or oscilloscope. 

Final testing involves pushing actual music thorough the receiver. We've learned over time that some issues are only noticeable to a trained ear while listening to familiar source material. Our test bench has reference vintage KEF speakers that we're very familiar with which quickly reveal any discrepancies. Some receivers will then move into our listening room where they are tested with our in-house reference speakers of choice.
