Marantz 2265


The Marantz 2265 is an all solid state receiver incorporating the innovative design and unparalleled technology that have made Marantz famous in the audio component industry.

The 2265 features a sensitive FM tuner,a highly selective AM tuner, a low distortion preamplifier, and two direct coupled power amplifiers on a single chassis, while retaining a flexibility comparable to that achieved using separate components.

The FM tuner utilises a MOSFET front end, ceramic IF filters, and a phase locked loop multiplex decoder.

The AM tuner features an advanced integrated circuit and ceramic IF filters for high selectivity and sensitivity.

The amplifier sections permit the connection of two stereo pairs of loudspeakers, a turntable or record changer, two tape recorders, stereo headphones, and an auxiliary source such as an additional tuner or a TV sound source.

The Marantz 2265 also features a variable turnover tone control and front panel dubbing jacks.

This is the 2nd highest of the Marantz 22XX series,I have been using this (2265b)more than 3years and will continue to do so.
Great sounding Master piece .can enjoy music long hours without fatigue., build quality is excellent, also nice looking with blue meater display . Great phono stage gives nice analog sounds for the vintage vinyl and also do the best for any other inputs.
Tuner is outstanding ( FM Stero) gives live performance.
I have noticed now its rare to find good unit and as well as the price picking up.
If you find now you won't regret in years to come.

Awesome receiver!!!! Bought it new in May 1978, Still works perfect in May 2015, still sounds amazing! Puts my newer $1200.00 Denon 7.1 to shame! It quite simply Kicks Ass!!!



re: 2265b

Managed to find a mint 2265b of ebay, cost me a packet but its a investment, can only increase in value. Love the fasia with blue tuning dial, looks futuristic even today. My 2265 is feeding a pair of JVC SX911 speakers, what a sound!!! The FM tuner, stereo separation is the best Ive ever listened to.I have 2 Marantz 1060s their the best sound I ever heard and the 2265b isnt that far behind them, just not as good on base in my opinion as my 1060s.

re: 2265

cannot get sound from right side

re: 2265

Have 2265b. Similar problem but on left side. Otherwise it's perfect. Seems there is a speaker protection circuit, may be fused. Any info yet?

re: 2265

Just want to say thanks for the service manual. I've had this receiver for 30+ years and it's been probably 29 since I had it open. Hopefully this gets me the info I need.

Thanks again,


re: 2265

I also have a 2265 and am happy with it. the more information we have the better.
