Introduced in 1972 this Marantz 2230 receiver retailed for $349.95.  It has all the classic Marantz attributes such as the brushed silver face plate, blue and red lights and gyro-touch tuner. The 2230 was a nice entry level model from Marantz and it put out 30 watts per channel. Production of the 2230 ended in 1974.

As you can see the Marantz 2230 has all the basic features a receiver needs including a mid range tone control which many other lower end units did not have.

The 2230 weighs around 36 pounds and measures 17-1/4 W x 5 H x 14 D. The feet add another 5/8 inch.  These units are very well built and the phono circuit is highly regarded in the 2230 for magnetic coil cartridges.

All the 22XX series receivers from Marantz are known to have a nice warm, smooth sound about them. So, if you prefer warm and smooth over shrill and harsh then the 2230 may be for you.

I’m sure you already know that Marantz gear is extremely popular. Anything produced in the 70’s is highly sought after. For those needing a simple lower wattage receiver for a small room or just for lower volume detailed music listening the 2230 will definitely do the job.
