Many of my customers are already vintage audio aficionados. However, many only know a little bit about vintage audio, and they are hoping to create the best possible vintage system. If you have read my blog, you know that before I concentrated on turntables only, I was also a huge fan of Marantz equipment. In particular, their integrated amps, tuners, and receivers. Part of my love is their great looks… I completely swoon for the brushed aluminum front plate and those signature blue lights. In addition, however, they are extremely well-made and very easy to work on for the do-it-yourselfer. Also, like the ARs and the Thorens, there is a lot of information out there to help you.
If you are looking to purchase a quality vintage Marantz receiver or other component, I highly recommend this seller on eBay. He has been restoring and selling for well over a decade, and you can see by his feedback, he does it right. I have not personally bought from him, but I have recommended many folks to him over the years, and all have been satisfied. If he doesn’t have a Marantz listed when you visit the link, you can always contact him via the eBay mail system, and ask him what he has coming up.
