This is for an extremely nice and rare Marantz SM-17SA Stereo/Mono Power Amplifier. This unit is 120v UL Approved - made for the American market! Take note - most of the ones you see on eBay are grey - market 100v models. Only a few of these came here, hand-built in a speciality division at Marantz. The build quality is absolutely phenomenal both inside and out! Conservatively rated at 60wpc at 8 ohms, 120 at 4 ohms, and 200 watts in mono, it was designed to reproduce the full frequency range of SACD which ultimately will benefit all sources! An all metal chassis, metal top plate ( not-stamped ) and TOTL GERMAN WBT 5-way Speaker binding posts. Those RCA inputs are high quality machined jacks - not the cheap stamped ones. This is one well-built amplifier. In very good to excellent condition with an extremely clean face plate, sides and top. A few very minor nicks on the top curved corners - hard to even see. They don’t make them like this anymore unless your prepared to spend many thousands. This amplifier sounds absolutely amazing - you will not be disappointed! Take another look at that internal, twin mono construction. Luckily I have another which I am keeping. Includes original high quality and thick IEC power cord and a photo copy of the instruction manual. This easily drives my Thiel CS 7.2’s which are less then 4 ohms and about 85db efficiency . Will be carefully packed.
