SOLD - FOR SALE: Marantz 2285b w/ WC22 Wood Case -Exceptional
$1000 without wood case.
$1300 with wood case.
If you've been looking high and low for what is considered to be one of the finest Marantz units ever built, look no further. This is hands down one of the cleanest, nicest and BEST sounding receivers I have had the pleasure of listening to, and looking at.
If you find a cleaner one out there, I'd be shocked.
I purchased this from the original owner who up to to the point of sale, listened and took care of this beauty on a weekly and sometimes daily basis.
It was thoroughly serviced in 1999. The internals are like NEW condition. I have never seen a cleaner inside.
I personally cleaned, deoxit and lubed all pots and switches, although to be quite honest, it didn't even need it.
It's balanced and sounds like new.
Tasteful, warm white LED light upgrade.
The faceplate is near museum quality, aside from one spot near the model number, that you'd have to seriously look at, to even notice.
Original WC22 case is in MINT condition.
The pics truly speak for themselves and have not been altered in any way.
All documentation including warranty cards, manual and brochures, are included and like new condition.
The stereo light does not work (I have a LED replacement). Speaker relay has been removed and bypassed. This in no way affects the performance of the unit. In fact, enhances it, as there is no dirty relay to interfere the signal. This is the reason I have not installed it.. If you're adamant, I can have both these issues addressed and fixed for an additional (nominal) price. If you're keen on doing this yourself, do let me know.
I have additional pics including the inside / cover off, available upon request (CAM only allows 15 photos).
Serious inquiries are welcome.
