Marantz 2015 receiver. Classic Vintage. Fully revitalized.
Marantz is a company founded by Saul Marantz in New York in 1953. In the 1960s, it was bought by Superscope Inc., and then began to produce in Japan, in partnership with Standard Radio Corp., which in 1975 changed its name to Marantz Japan. In 1980, Marantz was bought by Philips, and Marantz Japan and Denon merged to form D & M Holdings. In 2008, Philips sold its shares in D & M Holdings. In 2014, Marantz Professional was acquired by inMusic Brands, and D + M Holding has been owned by Sound United LLC since 2017. From the beginning of its existence, Marantz was defined as hi-end (high-end), or exclusive, high-quality hi-fi equipment. The company had a huge impact on the development of audio systems, and the greatest successes in the 1970s.
The 2015 is a compact receiver from Marantz manufactured in the first half of the 70s. This model proves that a manufacturer can launch a smaller receiver while maintaining the traditional style and quality of a much larger one. The 2015 is a full 30-W continuous power for 4 Ohm speakers, from 40 Hz to 20 kHz, with THD and intermodulation below 0.9%. This system combines all the high-performance features of Marantz, that is why, despite its small size, it delivers great quality sound that is warm soft and selective.
The model has been given a brand new, enlarged enclosure made of exotic meranti wood, which brings out its beautiful design characteristic of the 70s. The wood finishing is Chinese oil produced from natural oils and natural turpentine-based beeswax. Potentiometers are in perfect condition. The front panel is made of brushed aluminum. The device has been fully reviewed and serviced, and equipped with new aluminum legs.
New blue illumination of the front panel.
