⭕ For your consideration a very nice,fully tested,great sounding preamplifier from Marants,the illustrious 7-c,according to many the best-sounding tube preamplifier in vintage American audio.The Rolls Royce of tube preamps.This one is in mint condition,all lettering intact,zero rust anywhere,no oxydation or pitting,acorn nuts,all knobs original,all original tube shields..Unlike most tube preamps of that era,this one does not hum.Just splendid. Only cosmetci issue:top plate (inside woodcase as a few paint scratches.I suppose that top plate could be repainted,but Id rather leacve that to the next owner.Minor issue as original woodcase is in very nice condition.
All original parts,all orginal circuitry,all Bumble Bee caps in place.
Power light comes on,all fundtions work properly,phono section also tested A+.All pots and switches operate noiselessly.Only the volume pot has very minimal scratches in one channel only,and from about 1 pm to 5 pm or so ( in other words only in the loudest section of its rotation.Very minor,but I thought Id mention it.Individual channel volume oputput pots on rear also work fine.
Tubes are four Telfunken (diamond on bottom) and two Amperex one labeled Bugle boy,one labeled Eico made in Holand but with identical factory provenance as Bugle Boy.
