Hello, I am slowly attempting to build a collection of classic and vintage tube stereo equipment. I have been able to acquire more than a few vintage tube pieces, but now am looking to expand to Marantz gear from the 50s to mid 60s when it was the original company, when these items were made in New York.
Specifically, I am looking for the Model 7 and 7C preamplifiers. Also looking for the 2, 5, 8, 8b, and especially 9 amplifiers. I have been able to find a 10B tuner and so at this time it is the only tube Marantz I am not looking for (unless it's part of a collection).
Any other gear you might have could be of interest to me as well. Any gear I purchase from you goes into my personal collection. This is a hobby of mine, not a job and I have the time to put into restoring and enjoying these great examples of what we've made in the USA. I think at least some of these units should stay here instead of being sold almost exclusively to Asia.
If you have any items above that you'd consider selling (or anything else you think I may be interested in), please leave a number in your message to me, I want this process to be as painless as possible. I will cover the shipping or pick up if you are local.
