Marantz Model 8B Stereo Tube Amplifier in Clean Working Condition SN 8-6634
Marantz Model 8B Stereo Tube Amplifier in Clean Working Condition SN 8-6634. This amplifier is in good condition for its age showing only some wear. There are some small scuffs, marks, a few scratches, dings, and tiny paint chips in a couple of places on the cabinet and cage. I noticed on the trim of the meter there were a few small dings as well. The cage is ever so slightly bent on one side and also shows some heat marks inside which I have provided a close-up photo of. The one significant thing to note is that the fuse holder and cap both have a piece broken off of them. The fuse still screws in, however it is not very secure. If you do not intend on replacing this part then we recommend using some electrical tape to hold the fuse in securely.
Aside from these small physical issues the amplifier still looks extremely clean overall! We have slowly powered on the amplifier with a Variac and once it was at full voltage it was found to be in working condition. We let the amplifier play for part of the day to ensure that no apparent problems would arise. The sound was fantastic, even through the tiny speakers that we connected it to.Everything seems to function as expected and this will make a really nice amplifier for someone! The one thing we did not test was the bias adjust feature, however we do expect it to operate normally. To see the amplifier in action please view the video by clicking here.
