A warm sounding TT with direct drive and solid controls. Tonearm is adequate if not outstanding. I am not sure who actually made these but I suspect Pioneer or Hitachi MAY have had a hand in them as there are similar design elements. When many people think Marantz they think high-end equipment. The 6300 turntable wasn't of that ilk. It is a solid performer but no super deck. Mine was thought to be lost since 1986, then turned up in my best friend's barn. It had been unboxed but undisturbed. After dusting it thoroughly and lubricating key spots and a bit of de-oxit on the controls fired right up and now is the same table I bought in 1976. That longevity without ANY malfunctions despite being in sub-zero and over 100 deg. temperatures for over two decades is a testament to the high-quality materials used. Sonically it is pleasing, similar to a Pioneer of the same era. All said, on my low-budget it makes no sense to replace something that has lasted two wives, two dogs, numerous autos and lots and lots of drunken parties...totally unscathed! When it comes to vinyl, it is my rock.
