of the most famous vintage Marantz preamps ever built! First
production of the solid state version 7T was in 1966, based on the tube
model 7 in 1958.
Still sounds amazing. Here is just a bit of the cool features:
The Marantz Model 7T has eight inputs, selected by a front-panel
rotary switch, plus recording and playback connections for a tape
recorder controlled by a separate TAPE FUNCTION lever switch. A unique
feature is the pair of front-panel jacks for recording and playback
connections to a second external tape recorder (in addition to the one
built into one's system). These extra jacks make it simple to record a
program simultaneously on two recorders, or to copy a tape played on
either machine.The Model 7T has low-level equalized inputs for a tape
head and two magnetic cartridges, plus an unequalized microphone input.
There are four high-level inputs, marked TUNER, TV, AUXILIARY 1, and
AUXILIARY 2. Input impedance is 47,000 ohms at the phono inputs, and 1
megohm at all the others. On the rear of the chassis, in addition to the
various input jacks, are two pairs of parallel-connected output jacks
for driving the power amplifiers, and a pair of parallel-connected
center-channel (A + B) output jacks with their own level control. Also
on the front panel there is a MODE switch with the conventional settings
for playing either right or left channel alone, mixing both for mono
reproduction, or for normal or reversed-channel stereo, The tone
controls (separate bass and treble controls for each channel) use step
switches. The treble controls have five positions of cut and five of
boost, while the bass controls have four positions of cut and six of
boost. In the center flat position of each tone control, all
tone control circuitry is by-passed. Each step on the treble controls
provides a 2.5-db boost or cut in high-frequency response, and each step
of the bass controls corresponds to a 3-db change in low-frequency
response. The middle frequencies are unaffected.
characteristics are designed to compensate for the ear's apparent loss
of lows at reduced volume levels (the so-called Fletcher Munson effect),
and each step of bass boost supplies the compensation for a 5-db
reduction in listening levels. Next to the three-position TAPE FUNCTION
lever switch, which has settings for TAPE PLAY/MONITOR and TAPE COPY,
there are three more lever switches: the PHONO EQUALIZER, with the old
78-rpm characteristic and the old Columbia LP characteristic in addition
to RIAA equalization; a LOW-FREQ FILTER, with cut-off frequencies of
50 and 100 Hz; and a HIGH-FREQ FILTER, with cut-off frequencies of 5
and 9 kHz. The filters all have a 12 db per octave roll-off.
