NEW LISTING 11.5.2011 Marantz 8B +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
UPDATE: 11-13-2011 Pending Sale on Marantz 8B once completed I will post as Sold (UPDATE) 11-18-2011 SOLD!!
This is a very clean Marantz model 8B. This is now posted up for sale prior to the full restoration process. YOU can own it now by making a deposit. We are scheduling it for the “bench” workout (restoration) over the coming weeks. Just to cover a few of the areas that will be restored. Tubes installed will be either NOS (new old stock) this is for the small signal and driver tubes. The outputs will be strong testing Mullard (matched) original EL34′s with the “double O getters” and date codes Xf2 … If you know Mullard’s you know these are rare and very valued tubes. The under chassis work will be done as noted: several power supply electrolytic’s replaced, several critical coupling capacitors. power supply B+ diodes to high speed low noise types and bypassed.
The bias supply updated and improved filtering added. Critical resistors in the phase splitter circuit will be updated to low nose precision matched metal film types. The feedback circuit will be re-tuned. All tube socket solder pin points re-soldered. A full under chassis clean all pots/switches will be cleaned and lubed. The exterior will be fully cleaned and waxed. A new Marantz name logo will be affixed to the front. A new 3 lug grounded “safety” power cord installed. The amp will be run tested for 15 hours and all voltages will be trimmed to proper B+ for all circuits. Bias will be matched set for the outputs. A full bench scope power rating test and frequency sweep test will be performed and results included with completed amp to the new owner. This will certify the unit meets and exceeds all original factory specifications. Shipping safety is a priority with us so extra safe packing will be done for safe transit… now how much ? you can reserve it with a $ 1,000.00 deposit and balance due prior to shipping. Shipping and insurance will be calculated and added to balance due. NOW the selling price $ 3200.00 of course plus shipping and insurance.
This is a real value for a guaranteed performing classic Model 8B .. you have our word on it.
Thank you, the “Tubeology” Guy
NEW LISTING 11.5.2011 McIntosh MC225 ++++++++++++++++++++++++
(See pictures above this is prior to any work)
Up here for pre-sale prior to restoration work we have a fine McIntosh MC225 as you can see in the photos the inside working “guts’” are in very clean condition. We will of course be updating the power supply and the main electrolytic’s. This unit has the “sprague” early dipped type capacitors these have a low failure rate, but each will be fully and indivuddly tested and graded. All that meet our stringent test procedures will be re-installed. any out of spec will be replaced as matched pairs only so L & R channels will have the same circuit operation. The tubes (small signal) will be either replaced with NOS or NOS test American tubes. The 7591 outputs will be new issue matched and hand selected JJ brand.. I have found the JJ’s when properly QC’d and burned in to be very reliable and to sound near indistinguishable form the NOS Sylvania’s. The external chassis has the “pimpled” type chrome blemishes, we will hand clean and burnish/polish the chrome as best as we can, it should look pretty good when completed. The transformers are in excellent condition and will clean up to look as new as well as as speakers and other input/output use jacks. lettering is in poor condition condition, so I will take it all off the I/O face section, other chassis lettering in good shape. The unit once rebuilt will undergo a myriad of operational and load/voltage tests to ensure it’s operating at or above all original McIntosh specifications..you can make a deposit to secure this fine unit for $ 1,000 the actual finished price is $ 2100.00
Reserve it for you now!
Thanks, Pat the “Tubeology” Guy
