Very good CT-7000B for sale here. Restored properly, meaning that the power supply was fully rebuilt first before re-capping willy-nilly and missing the actual problem areas. See the parts, those were replaced. Transistors, a dropping resistor, caps, the very corrosive cap glue (on all), voltage regulator IC’s, all of the lamps and a new low heat bipolar LED on the dial pointer. Then a full alignment and cleaning of the remaining parts. This work took 8+ hours to diagnose and fix/restore because my tech tests all voltage points and moves on from there, going section by section. This tuner should work for many more years.
I cannot believe how good it sounds with a quality station. This tuner rivals my Kenwood L-02T, in fact they are quite similar all around. I may prefer the overall presentation of this 7000BL though.
(This tuner is also the most well built of any I’ve had. This includes many of the halo models of the majors, which I have owned over the last 30 years. I cannot imagine the cost and time Yamaha must have put into this one, It’s a “you’ll never see this again” kind of product. It is not big physically, but somehow it’s 30 pounds. That’s more than the Kenwood KT-917 or the L-02T. I’m impressed, this tuner belongs in the Smithsonian with the top off, but next to it in a clear acrylic box.)
I then cleaned and polished the face carefully (old black anodization is fragile and does tend to color shift, making it look eggplant or lighter.) This one is still pretty good, a little shift has happened but that’s the nature of it. It could be re-done but then it’s not original and that’s not my M.O.
The Madagascar Ebony case has been properly prepped and cleaned. Then re-stained to color match and lastly two thin coats of a clear gloss top coat, which is a full protectant against most household issues, including water. I chose gloss because most TOTL Japanese audio gear at the time with wood cases had a gloss finish applied. It’s also remarkably easy to repair if it should get scratched. No exotic and impossible to fix finishes here.
I have a good box and packing to ship it in.
