Marantz 2238 B
Happy as a clam yes I am
I have spent a few dollars on audio equipment since joining this club. However todays purchase makes me as happy/excited as any of previous purchases. Funny thing is that it didn't cost me much at all :eek::cheesygrin:
I bought a Marantz 2238B receiver and a Harman/Kardon 3250 with remote for $125.00
The Marantz is in pretty damn good shape and after I clean it up I'll post pictures. All lights work and things look pretty good. I am going to hook it up to my MF A5 CDP and Sonus Faber GPD's later today for a tune session.
The Marantz can't compete with the Belles amp and Anthem pre2l but I am sure I won't be disappointed.
I hope :evil: I am not going down another rabbit hole with vintage gear :lol: Anne Marie did say the HK is far better looking than the Marantz but what does a woman know :loneranger:
Rhode Island has the best beaches on the east coast by the way.
Great deal on great items :)
Do you ever get down this way? We spent some time in Maine last year and I have to say it is a beautiful state and great people.
We stopped at a place called Rats to buy steamers and I have to say they were the finest steamers I have ever eaten. I have had the luxury to eat some of the finest and that was the best.
I better get back to cleaning up the Marantz and a few beers so I can post pictures.
We'll expect your report any minute now. :cheesygrin:
I love the classic Marantz look - used to collect the brochures in the 70's as a kid dreaming about owning one myself.....sigh....

I am seriously thinking about buying a pair of Bose 901's series 4 5 or sixes just because I can and they were the speakers I ran down rabbit hole. I never knew back in the 70's but a happy as a clam now
Congrats. You will like that marantz. They have a personality unto themselves that is very nice. Maybe not better than ???? But very nice to listen to in and of itself.

Nice snag. I have a 2252B in my office rig. Vintage Marantz + Vintage Polk= :cheesygrin:
Just finished hooking it up to my Musical Fidelity A5 CDP and I have a pair of Sonus Faber Grand Piano Domus Speakers
when I learned about the Boston Marathon Blast so my joy went right out the F ing window.
I do hate the direction MY country is going.
I think we can all agree on that
