Marantz Model 3 Vintage Electronic Tube Crossover - 2 Way - SUPER RARE

$2,999

This is a Super Rare monaural 2-way crossover from Marantz, utilizing 3 x 12AX7 type tubes.

Untested but likely working. Will need a power supply, or matched and powered in tandem with another Marantz piece that has required connector.

More from a vintage Marantz article:

"A considerable improvement in clarity and smoothness of reproduction is obtained when a loudspeaker is connected directly to the amplifier terminals without intervening reactive networks. The low internal impedance of the amplifier then tends to dampen spurious speaker resonances. In a multi-speaker system it would be necessary to accomplish the crossover at an earlier stage in order to supply separate amplifiers with the frequency range required for each speaker. The Marantz Electronic Crossover was designed for this purpose.

This new unit embodies typical Marantz quality features. Careful engineering and high-grade construction make this one of the finest instruments of its type (terminal board wiring, low-noise deposited carbon resistors, precision components, etc.) A basic two-channel unit, it can be cascaded for multi-speaker systems.
