I love it!!! I always liked the 70's vintage Marantz gear, in fact my first true component stereo amp was a model 1030-which I still have to this day.

I remember all of those beauties you have there....and indeed they all look to be in fine shape. And, I would also bet that it all sounds darn good.

Nice!!!!!

Pete

Thanks, Pete.

There's just something about the look of vintage 70's gear.

I'm pretty happy with how it sounds. In fact, I haven't listened to a CD since I got this up and running.

Viva la vinyl.

I've owned more than one 2252B and have always liked the smooth Marantz sound. Marantz and HPM's go well together.

Thanks, guys! I find the sound of the Marantz and HPM's quite enjoyable. In fact, I haven't listened to a CD since I got this up and running.

I almost bought a pair of HPM-100's over the weekend but couldn't pull the trigger. They were mismatched and at $175, a bit pricey. They would have paired nicely with my 2500 receiver.
