This Marantz Model 7 Stereo preamplifier is in very good condition and sounds fantastic.
Unit has just been completely gone through by my service tech JAK consulting - all the pots, switches, and controls have been checked, cleaned, and are original to the unit.
Tube audio collectors recognize the Model 7 as one of the all time best sounding preamps and it is safe to say this unit still sets the bar very high.
This preamp was made from 1960 to 1966 and is becoming increasingly rare in this kind of condition.
The warmth and tone it brings to a music presentation is sonic bliss.
Serial Number - 7-168**
Unit has the Brown knobs on the switches
Cosmetic Condition - unit has some abrasions on the faceplate and chassis but no series dents or dings
Tube Compliment - All tubes test strong in my calibrated TV-7
