Picked up a rare, black-faced Marantz 240 power amplifier about six months ago, and my back hasn’t been the same since. But seriously, beyond its weight, this was a nice-sounding amplifier. At 120 watts per channel, it wasn’t a monster, but still packed enough power to impress the neighbors.
How did it sound? To me, and again, no opportunity for a side-by-side listening test, it sounded just fine. I was using a newer Adcom preamp with it, and those together worked quite well, sonically-speaking.
Have any stories or photos of your Marantz 240? Please leave a comment or send me an email.
