So, here's the story with this truly vintage, Marantz, model 7t, console style, solid state, pre-amp. It was manufactured in Woodside, New York, by Marantz, back in 1965. it was one of the 1st commercially successful,solid state, control amps of its kind and represents the best of that era. This particular unit was part of a custom made, console system that has since been disassembled. The other units that were inside the console are all still with the Audiophile, awaiting some professional servicing. (a Marantz model 10b tuner and a Girard turntable, and a Williamson Vacuum Tube amp from England) This Marantz, model 7t, had 1 loving owner. This unit was professionally serviced by Euphonicvalve- vintage stereo repair, in Vermilion, Ohio,this past summer. It was inspected ,cleaned, tested and evaluated. The only repair needed was to replace a defective transistor (in which I still have) and to lubricate the controls. A slight distortion in the A-B mono control was detected but, only noticable when switching the functions. Otherwise, the bias and distortion levels, are near perfect. The work is warranted .This is truly a wonderful, great working unit. Perfect for the hi-fi, purists of that era and quite a collection piece for the stereo aficionado. Shipping would require insurance for sure due to the age, fragility, and value, of the unit. I would consider delivering this unit to you if you are within, 60 miles or so, of Cleveland,Ohio. That's how much I care about this unit. It is ok to contact the seller for more details and info but, please don't ask me to send photos of the inside it's simply not going to happen. As the ad states, the unit was recently serviced by a professional. The price is negotiable. Cash or Zelle,only, no split payments. If your reading this ad then the unit is still available. Thanks for your interest and for reading this post.
