Default Fond Memories

I also owned the 2245 and before it a Model 26, then a 2215. I had a pair of Aztek Dulane speakers and a Benjamine Mirachord 50H turntablle. I spent many hours in local shops looking at this gear.

My 65 Ford Falcon was rear-ended and I used the money to buy the Model 26 reciever instead of fixing my bumper. I think that was their first SS reciever it had lots of problems. I exchanged it for the 2215 when it came out.

Thanks, Dave. I'm listening to Peter Frampton doing "Do you feel like I feel?" right now on FM, just like I used to when the 2245 was new! I like it!

What a picture! Brings back great memories for me, too. I purchased a 2230 as my first receiver in 1973 on the "drag" in Austin. I traded it for a 2245 the next year, and a 2270 the next. From there, I don't remember what I ever did with it. I sure wish I had kept it after seeing that photo... I had a Dual TT, Revox Reel to Reeel, and Cornwalls with the 2245. Great times!

I had a 2235 first and instantly loved it. Now I have a fully restored 2226b am rebuilding a 2270. For the money, these are excellent receivers.

Default My Marantz gear.

20161226_183641.jpgHere is my Marantz 2245, 2270 and 250m. All in perfect running condition. I think the 2245 sounds the best and is running my patio speakers.
