PRICE NOW LOWERED! This is an original, unmodified Marantz 8 stereo power amplifier. It has been tested and adjusted by a veteran ace technician in Hollywood, CA, and is ready to play. The tubes are numbered to match the numbered sockets. The white tape used for the numbering of the tubes and the associated sockets strips away easily w/o residue if so desired. I have rated the amp as 7/10 because of several small nicks and scratches in various areas of the unit, most of which can be seen in the photos. There are a few little white spots visible that are tiny pieces of the micro-fiber cloth I used to clean it. Nothing horrible here, just minor dings/scratches from years of use. I will include a copy of the owner’s manual with the amp. I will ship anywhere in the word at the buyer’s expense. If Paypal is used for purchase the buyer needs to add 3%. This unit will be very well-packed and fully insured. Look at my feedback and you will see I pack well and sell only excellent equipment. I am also selling this unit’s companion Marantz 7 stereo preamplifier under a separate classified ad. Please have a look!
