Marantz 2275 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 2275 is a unique Marantz receiver from 1975. It is characterized by a classic, simple form and beautiful sound. The soundstage is extremely wide and detail-revealing, while the sound is exceptionally dynamic and selective. The 2275 is a device of the highest quality, popularized thanks to an original promotional campaign featured in Stereo Review. The ad depicted a burnt 2275, which according to its owner, had been recovered from the charred rubble of the house after a fire. It only needed a new power cord to work perfectly again.
The model has been equipped with a new, enlarged enclosure made from exotic rosewood, which brings out its beautiful design of the 70s. The wood finish is Chinese oil produced from natural oils and natural turpentine-based beeswax. Potentiometers are in perfect condition. The front panel is made from brushed aluminum. The device has been fully reviewed and serviced, equipped with new aluminum legs.
New blue illumination of the front panel.
