I bought a Marantz 1200b for repair of eBay. I have read a few negative opinions on this amp (mostly about reliability). With that in mind, I still was interested in how it might sound like and can say honestly that It is one of the best if not the best sounding amplifier I have heard. The design of the output although unstable is simply remarkable. I have heard and repaired countless amps and decided to keep this one and sell my others to use and for future investment. If your a Marantz collector and don't have one you're missing out. And if you have one and it hasn't been serviced don't wait to blow your output transistors do it now.

IMO, this is the amp (well, the 1200b) to own, if you collect Marantz integrated amps. Simple, reliable, well built and fabulous sounding, the 1200b will delight listeners today. Like all old Marantz amps and recievers, watch for poorly selected replacement transistors. All early Marantz amps used carefully matched transistors for low distortion. And the 1200b delivers just that. In spades. Clean, powerful and capable of dealing with tough, 4 Ohm loads. The 1200b is the amp I most regret selling. The output stage is identical to that used in the 240/250 power amps, whilst the preamp is a simplified version of the 3300 preamp. Beautifully built in Southern California, the 1200b is (or should be) a collector's dream.
