This is an excellent example of the era-defining Marantz 8B tube amplifier. The 8b is one of very few vintage amplifier designs that have maintained the respect of audiophiles since they were first introduced and, if you've been interested in high end audio for any length of time, you've probably heard about them. The 8b features some of the finest transformers that have ever been made and each output transformer is fine-tuned for optimum performance using an extra output tap and circuitry that is only found in a hand full of extraordinary amplifiers. The circuits of this amplifier have not been modified, but the input jacks and all of the key resistors and capacitors have been lovingly replaced with extremely high quality components. This ensures that it is as fine an example of the Marantz 8b sound as is possible to achieve. It is clean, it has always been well maintained, and it works wonderfully. It comes with "old stock" Tung-Sol 6BH6, "old stock" RCA 6CG7, and Svetlana EL34 tubes. I have opened this "store"on Audiogon so that I can take wire transfers. Because of this, you won't see feedback for me. But look me up on Ebay under "powereofthemuse", where you'll see that I have 100% positive feedback across all 98 transactions I've made in the last 20+ years. Please let me know if you have questions.
