Marantz 1060 solid state integrated amp circa 1975 Integrated Amplifiers

 

I now have the dream system of my youth in 1975! Back then I spent my money on speakers and bought a pair of used KEF 104s at $250 each. About half new price. I still have those speakers and only needed to replace the grills.

Bought new in 1972, when I was 25, and still enjoying 45 years later. Only problem is a noisy, scratchy balance pot which sometimes fails to read R channel input. Had not been used in months. However as I resume using regularly, this is clearing up....

Hardly anything I can add to the reviews already posted.. the 1060 is great, and has the trademark Marantz warmth. At 30 WPC, it will not be a party animal to be heard down the block... If you're reading this, it's probably not you intend to use it for...

Marantz 1060 solid state integrated amp circa 1975 Integrated Amplifiers

 

My Father purchased this amplifier when he was a young man. I inherited it when I was born. I first used it in my young teens and didn't really know then that I had a gem. I first used it with a SEAS kit. This combo was a dream. In my youth I felt the...

Well, well I said when offered a 1971 Marantz 1060 with a pair of original Bose 901's with working inline equalizer and a Philips 212 Electronic turntable all in SUPERB! condition. For a low end amp. at 30 watts per channel it sounds great. ( My last...

I got this Marantz 1060 at a thrift store for $1.95. It was dirty. It was like it had some sort of fertilizer on it. I was in the back with this guy looking for an IBM 'clicky' keyboard. I saw this under a load of trash. I asked the guy what he would...

I HAVE HAD MY MARANTZ 1060 SINCE 1973. IHAD TO REPLACE THE POWER SWITCH WITH A TOGGLE SWITCH AFTER ABOUT 5 YAERS. RECENTLY CLEANED THE CONTROLS WITH ELECTRICAL CLEANER AND BLEW OUT THE DUST. CLEANED UP THE OPTIONAL WALNUT COVER. STILL LOOKS LIKE 1973.

Marantz 1060 solid state integrated amp circa 1975 Integrated Amplifiers

 

I purchased my 1060 new when I was 23 years old and I am now 60. At the time, I also bought Altec Bolero speakers, which to this day, sound rich and almost 3D. I still have them both, but now, the 1060 drives a pair of Polk Audio speakers. Over the...

Marantz 1060 solid state integrated amp circa 1975 Integrated Amplifiers

 

I've had this amp for about two years now, and it is simply beautiful. It produces a rich warm sound. Great phonograph stage. The only drawback is the power. It is fine for bookshelf or very efficient speakers. I recently got a pair of floor standing...
