Marantz Japanese manufacturer of consumer and semi-pro audio & video products and is unusual in that it occupies a fairly broad range of the spectrum from both fairly inexpensive music systems up to expensive specialised hi-fi equipment but is also a provider some interesting semi-pro lines that are difficult to get elsewhere. The company is currently a part of the D+M Group group but was originally founded in 1953 as Standard Radio in the Setagaya district in Tokyo, changed it's name to Nihon Marantz Kabushiki Kaisha in 1975 although it trades as just plain Marantz in the hi-fi world and continued for quite a while to trade in communications equipment as SR Standard but the company got out of the radio business when the D&M group was formed and the SR trademark and product lines are now handled by Yaesu. During the 60's the company also held out a small collection of brandnames that it no longer uses, including Unicorder, also although most of their 1970's and early 1980's products are clearly marked "Designed in the USA", in particular the lines sold in the US, they were in fact all designed in Japan, this was a misguided marketing effort by the then brand owners Superscope Technologies but this practice was discontinued when Nihon Marantz gained control of the brandname via Philips, the company also used the brand Esotec in and around 1980 for their high end products.
