    Default 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

    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 I am not going down another rabbit hole with vintage gear Anne Marie did say the HK is far better looking than the Marantz but what does a woman know

    Rhode Island has the best beaches on the east coast by the way.

    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.

    I love the classic Marantz look - used to collect the brochures in the 70's as a kid dreaming about owning one myself.....sigh....

    H9: If you don't trust what you are hearing, then maybe you need to be less invested in a hobby which all the pleasure comes from listening to music.

    Watching the end of the Masters and the Red Sox having a few so don't hold your breath on the review.

    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

    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.
