READ MORE ON OUR "HIFI REVIEWS" PAGE


Midrange Model at 45w in the 1977 Marantz Range. 240v Only, read on why.

This was a Nice Grade Amp with an 8/10 Fascia before it's few minutes in the Hands of an Unthinker unable to see Marantz is a good amp. A Sign of the Times with Clearances these days. Amp Unopened until we got it, all 8 lid screws with Washers & Base Lid the Original screws if Replacement Feet.

To Get Past the Fascia with Corner Dents that we tidied to look better than expected. We've Priced this to allow you to get a Spare Fascia from the USA as ebay often lists parts. It's not perfect but not ugly as you can see. No broken boards inside, rear connectors all good as intact & the panel behind the fascia is good plus all 4 Hex Fascia Bolts. Top lid is clean as washed as it was high grade, not a spray can job, shows a few marks we'll paint in, but to show it's not so bad.

Recapped & Upgraded on All. Sounded Thin with No Bass as Original, now it's a much Richer Sound for Our Upgrades & Sounds Good On Speakers. The Mid Model is still Good with Marantz if the Higher Models will better it, this gives a Decent sound. We've priced this at £595, a better grade one would be quite a bit more. This is a Bargain Hunters Delight when you see silly prices online for Raw Aged ones. Matches our Tannoys fine as did other 1977 Marantz.

It's for 240v use only, if the Amp was Multivoltage if the Rear Block had the 240v pins not tight so to solder the joins to 240v to keep it reliable. If you got a spare Working Multivoltage block you could rewire it, the fitting is screwed as original, not glued in. The Bakelite parts are glued so you can't alter voltage & 240v only written inside. Totally Safe To Use & Run In for Many Hours to offer it for sale. Original 3-core Marantz mains cable.

We've Had this on Extended Run in & it's behaved very well, barely warm after 8 hours Run In Over 2 days, 16 hours run in plus use by us. Checked & Adjusted it's a Good amp.

A decent sized amp 416mm wide x 153mm high x 300mm deep if 330mm Max Depth inc fittings.

THE AMP ITSELF WEIGHS ABOUT 9.1KG

THIS AMPLIFIER HAS BEEN FULLY SERVICED, CLEANED, CHECKED VISUALLY BY TAKING APART, RUN IN FOR HOURS AS WELL AS USED BY US!
