I don't really know what more to say other than this unit is aesthetically !!!clean!!! (understated elegance) and electronically quiet, powerful, extended (freqs) and restored for the long haul. It really speaks for itself quite eloquently. If you can find a better sounding 700M, buy it...but you won't find one.

Fine print:

There are no returns for the unit because I cannot be guaranteed that the unit won't be dropped, cross-wired and shorted, liquid spilled in it, or whatever user error. What I will however guarantee, is that at the time of pickup/shipping, the unit will have no static, cracks, pops, hums, etc., every switch/knob will work as designed, and that the unit will sound cleaner than the day it rolled off the assembly line.
