You are looking at the holy grail of Marantz receivers and a true classic. Many people feel this is one of the best units produced when Marantz was producing some of the best solid state stereo gear. These are nearly impossible to find. Cosmetically, it is fairly nice.The chassis does have some dust but fairly clean as well. The case does have some wear and corner damage from age and use.
It also may have been painted or touched up years ago. Please review the photos to see the specific cosmetic flaws present. Sonically, this unit needs repair. It does not work or light up, just the fan runs.We had this checked by a reputable shop and as with many of these, it will require a new transformer. We also cannot guarantee what else might be wrong and as shown, the balance control is broken. We also cannot guarantee the condition of the capacitors and any other components due to age. All of these are due for service as components are past their shelf life. If you have not owned a vintage receiver before, they can be tempermental and expensive to repair. We will let the market determine the value of this RARE piece. The full catalog of photographs appear below the text. We have used North American Van Lines in the past with great success.
