Marantz CP230


The two head CP230 features the same balanced transport mechanism used in the CP430.

A high value portable, it features all the facilities of the more expensive deck, with the exception of only two heads and Dolby B noise reduction.

Clear meters and an uncluttered control layout make the CP230 a delight to use on location recording, and an internal speaker makes location monitoring much easier.
