My Marantz 2250B with a new look
Here is the Marantz 2250B with the upgraded lights
Did you change to LED lamps?
By the way...do you listen to the Marantz with the tone controls set like that?
yeah upgraded with LED lights but I didn't do the upgrade. I gave it to a friend and he did ti for me since he knows how to do it. It looks so nice at the dark and even better than on the picture!

I was thinking about replacing the lights on mine with LED. Mine are faded out at the meters and not all that bright in the tuning dial.
I listen to mine with the tone mode set to "out" almost all the time.
I have 2230 with the original lights and they are exactly the same like yours! I see they sell LED bulbs on ebay for them so you can get them from there!
Gorgeous. I just may do my 1515.
Do it Poppa, it looks a lot better and it takes your eyes attention right away! Every time I pass by it and it is on, I look at it with pleasure!!!:

If I remember right, I was impress; it had that warm sound and plenty of power. I love that gyro dial to turn the radio, had a nice feel to it. I started to build around it. I end up using it as front end for the Stereo front speaker part of the Hometheater. Came in handy when I was playing just stereo music. Brings back memories, eventually I'm going buy one to add back to my collection. Keep up this Great Hobby!
