$250 · Marantz 2235B
Marantz's have become Legendary and the 2235B is one of favourites in my mind. Only 35 watts but it does have that Marantz sound and a very good tuner section too.
I got this at a garage sale and cleaned it up and turned it over to a technician who checked it out for me. Other than insuring that everything worked and voltages were what they were supposed to be and where they were supposed to be, no upgrades were done.
I did replace the missing and burnt out bulbs with the LED upgrade. Not everyones cup of tea but I like the look.
It was a bare chassis so we found the metal cover and had the balance slider replaced.. but never did find a knob for it.
This unit was in my second system for a few years. Worked very well with my older Celestion Speakers and I enjoyed many hours listening to LP's or CKUA. We did move on and though the unit did come back into play every now and again it's been gathering dust.
It needs some calibration, the tuner dial is off though once I found where the channels I listen to were located I was happy. Some would do a recap and that would raise it's value. Based on online prices this one might be considered a bargain. I will include the bulb for the dial light as I never got around to installing it. And it has one third party rubber foot..
Tested it with all inputs but tape.. and they're all working well.
Thanks for looking
