Always loved Marantz receivers. Had one back in the 70s. Found a 4300 at an estate sale a few years ago and I'm back in heaven. Play it through some Bose 901s, series I. Rocks the house.

re: 4300

Consulto ..el equipo admite conectar 4 bafles de 6 OHMS simultaneamente ? o solo de 8 Ohms? Gracias

re: 4300

You may connect 4 speakers of 6 Ohms as far as you use the 4-channel Front & Rear setup (You can go as low as 4 Ohms). You may not use 4 of these speakers by connecting them on Main Front and Remote Front. Then you need at least 8 Ohms.
