This is the venerable Marantz 8B, from the 60's (about mid-60's), and a fierce competitor to the McIntosh MC240 amplifier and vintage Harman Kardon Citation amplifiers.

This Marantz 8B hailing from the late 1960's has received one of the most detailed and thorough restorations you'll ever find.  No expense was spared in both time and materials, and this is therefore priced accordingly. 

A quick look inside reveals German Mundorf and British Clarity Cap capacitors used throughout, along with metal film precision resistors. 

And besides the internals, cosmetically it doesn't get much better than this. 

The paintwork is near mint with only the slightest signs of use. Both the metal cage and the potentiometer covers are in place which are almost always lost over the years. 

This amplifier originally retailed for about $275 back in the 60's, and since the collectability is super high on these they're quite expensive nowadays and there are not that many left.  A lot of these suffered chassis rust, and because they are heavy and hard to handle many were dropped and dented and dinged.

It's very well built weighing in at about 56 pounds which is pretty amazing for a compact amplifier.

Tubes are new Russian made EL34's which we've found to sound warm and detailed. 

All of this results in a wonderful sounding amplifier that's perfect for powering your vintage or modern efficient speakers.
