I have for you a genuine ESTATE item… Please note the photographs. Marantz Model 8 Stereo Power Amplifier. Two-channel/stereo vacuum tube amplifier, 30 watts per channel, Serial No. 1954, built by the original (Saul) Marantz Company, Long Island City, New York. Based-on what Ive been able to find out. Essentially this Model 8 is two Model 5s on the same chassis. From the estate of the original owner, who, incidentally, was the son of a McIntosh executive; this unit was found alongside another Marantz tube amplifier, a Model 5, in a New Jersey estate. This Model 8 was subsequently taken to noted Marantz authority/repairer Bristol Electronics where it was vetted, tested, evaluated and sympathetically gone-over in general. It was brought-up very slowly on a Variac for 8 to 10 hours. Tubes were checked, tube pins and the bias tests switch were cleaned. RCA jacks were tightened, adjusted, etc, etc. Overall it was tested and gone-through to a point. A set of four (4) rubber feet were replaced (now black). 2 1/2A Slo Blo Fuse replaced. A used, nicely matched EL34 Tube fitted. Replaced original parts (the old brown broken feet and fuse, etc) were kept and will accompany the unit for the sake of originality. While this unit has been tested and works, there are some items that were recommended. A new selenium rectifier, possibly of modern-type silicon diode variety; and a new rubber power cord, of the same style, should be fitted if you intend to use this piece and expect top performance, to the best of its potential. This Model 8 is a testament for what it is. A nice, original American tube amplifier thats highly sought after today. Its for the collector, is the better part of 60 years old and should be looked-at and used as such unless youre full aware of how to care for, tune and restore/enjoy these precision units. This is a delicate and expensive (and heavy) item. Please see all pictures! From the Estate of the Original Owner. Stunning, overall antique find! All items kept in a pet-free, smoke-free home. All of my parts work/(or don’t work) as described at the time of listing, however; no warranties or guaranties of performance expressed or implied due to the nature and age of these items unless noted specifically otherwise. In other words- assume its good for its parts or rarity/collector value if anything. No warranties expressed or implied.

This sale is for the pictured EICO HF 86 Power Amplifier. PLEASE MAKE AN OFFER, You know what this is… This amp with original EICO labeled MULLARD tubes is EXTREMELY hard to find. It is rated at 14 watts per side, and is a STEREO Tube Amp. ALLOriginal MULLARD TUBES, with the EICO label. It comes with the SAMS Photofacts with layout and schematics. And of course my stereo took the hit. I had it running thru an HF 85 pre-amp, and listened to the FM on an HF90 tuner. Almost stole the EL84s outta this for my guitar amp… But resisted the temptation. This amp was working about 10 years ago or so sounded fantastic too. PLEASE LOOK AT THE PHOTOS. This amp was stored INDOORS, was never exposed to high moisture environment like some others. VERY LITTLE CORROSION OR RUST… Because this is vintage electronics. And because it has not been powered or tested in over 10 years. Was working fine when I stopped using it, and the Mullards all were top shelf. No wonder this Gem is , or was considered one of the top 10 low powered amps of all time. ALL tubes will be removed and wrapped. Have a look at my other items. You might just find something you like!

Rare & Beautiful Vintage Packard Bell El84 Stereo Tube Amp Amplifier (unique!)

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019
Rare & Beautiful Vintage Packard Bell El84 Stereo Tube Amp Amplifier (unique!)

It is truly one-of-a-kind as the photos show and is very attractive and unusual-looking. Ive never seen another one like it! He really made this amplifier into a beautiful piece of equipment with its distinctive red paint and trim-pieces, as well as its silver-colored, cone-shaped centerpiece. The amplifier is very clean, too. DETAILED INFORMATION INVOLVING THE AMPLIFIER. As the photos show, the amplifier has a very distinctive, interesting, and one-of-a-kind appearance and isreally beautiful in my opinion. It would make a wonderful addition to any vintage amplifier collection and please check out all of the photos that I have provided. This is one of the best looking tube amplifiers that I have ever seen! I dont know what the model number of this amplifier is although, when I bought it, there was a small piece of paper with it which said that it was a Model DPA 30-3. This would seem to agree with what I have seen on the Internet regarding this amplifier. I was also told at the estate sale that this amplifier came out of a very large and expensive Packard-Bell stereo console unit. As mentioned above, this amplifier has a really unique and cool-looking appearance. It is also very clean. Check out the bright red-painted transformer and the red/silver trim-pieces decorative trim pieces along with the silver-colored, cone-shaped centerpiece at the front of the amplifier! Ive never come across an amplifier that looks as cool as this one does and, in my view, its former owner did a wonderful job in giving the amplifier a very unique appearance. The amplifier does have some discolored areas (rust spots), scuffs, scratches, bends, scrapes, marks, stains, dings, dents, rough spots, etc. On it from age, use, etc. However, many or most of these items are too small to be picked up by the camera in the photos. It is a very distinctive and nice-looking amplifier in my view and please check out the photos for a variety of different views of this amplifier. Located on the top surface of the amplifier is a pair of jacks, the main red-painted power transformer, and 2 output transformers (with both of the output transformers having the same code numbers on them). There is also a large black plastic socket on the top surface of the amplifier. From what Ive seen on the Internet, this socket was used to connect the amplifier to other electronic components used in the stereo console from which the amplifier came. I know nothing about these jacks and socket, and I also do not know if they work, how they work, what they are supposed to do, if they are correct, if they are functional, if they are original, etc. There is no on/off switch or other controls on this amplifier. I also do not know if the power cord/plug is original or not. There is also a really cool-looking red/black painted plastic name-plate on the top surface of the amplifier which says PACKARD BELL ELECTRONICS on it along with a PB logo. This name-plate is really interesting-looking! It does have some paint chipping here and there and it is somewhat warped. In addition, I dont know how it is affixed to the chassis (possibly using some kind of adhesive but I dont really know). In any event, however, the name-plate is really nice-looking in my view and check it out in the photos that I have provided. As mentioned above, the main transformer is painted a really cool and bright-looking red color. The front of the transformer has 2 decorative trim-pieces made of what appears to be wood which has been painted red and silver. Likewise, there is a plastic silver-colored, cone-shaped centerpiece between the two decorative trim-pieces at the front of the amplifier. There are some scratches, scuffs, scrapes, etc. On the transformer, trim-pieces, and centerpiece but, in my view, I think that they look great! In combination, they give the amplifier a very cool appearance and Ive never seen another amplifier like it. I dont know how the trim-pieces and centerpiece are attached to the amplifier chassis (possibly using some kind of adhesive but I dont really know). They do look really cool in my view and I think that the former owner of the amplifier did a great job with them. On the right side of the amplifier, there are 2 more jacks, an outlet, and two more sockets. I know nothing about these jacks, outlet, and sockets, and I also do not know if they work, how they work, what they are supposed to do, if they are correct, if they are functional, if they are original, etc. Regarding the tubes which are included with the amplifier (and came with it when I bought it), they are all Packard-Bell brand tubes and it is quite unusual in my view to have all tubes with the same brand on them that is on the amplifier. The tubes are as follows: (A) 6BQ5 (EL84); (B) 6BQ5 (EL84); (C) 6BQ5 (EL84); (D) 6BQ5 (EL84); (E) 7025; (F) 7025; and (G) 5U4GB. I did not test these tubes and I therefore do not know if they are good or not. Likewise, the graphics are smudged/missing/faint on one or more of the tubes. However, I dont know if these are the correct tubes for this amplifier and whether or not these tubes are in the correct sockets in the photos. I also did not check the tube sockets and I likewise cannot warrant or guarantee that they are good, original, and operational. Accordingly, I will again leave all of the issues with the tubes whether the tubes are good, whether the sockets are good, what sockets the tubes should be in, etc. Also, I have no idea if the wiring in the amplifier is correct or good and I dont know anything about the transformers used by the amplifier if they are correct, original, good, etc. Regarding the electronic components used by the amplifier, I have provided an underside view of the amplifier in the photos which shows various components, wires, etc. In summary, this amplifier is, in my view, really great-looking, clean, impressive, and has a very distinctive retro appearance. It is really unique, beautiful, and one-of-a-kind in my opinion. It is one of the coolest-looking tube amplifiers that I have ever seen. I believe that it would make a wonderful addition to any vintage amplifier collection and a really fun item to own! I have not done anything to this amplifier and all of its parts, transformers, wires, electronic components, tubes, sockets, power cord/plug, capacitors, resistors, jacks, outlet, and all of its other components and I know nothing about their condition. The above-described amplifier may have been worked on, repaired, had parts replaced/repaired, and/or been modified by someone else in the past, but I dont know whether this is true or not. In this regard, I have done nothing to this amplifier and I have not inspected it internally or externally. However, I do not know how much work, parts, wires, wiring work/replacement, repairs, rewiring, upgrading, power transformer(s), output transformer(s), electronic components, power cord/plug replacement, additional parts, tubes, jacks, sockets, outlets, resistors, capacitors, etc. This amplifier is quite heavy. While I will pack this item very securely, some of the wires, components, parts, capacitors, resistors, sockets, transformers, jacks, power cord/plug, name-plate, outlet, resistors, capacitors, etc. Furthermore, some of the paint, silver color, etc. However, I will do my best to try and prevent these situations by very carefully packing this amplifier although I cannot guarantee that they wont happen. Please make a note of this. Furthermore, all of the tubes, tube sockets, capacitors, resistors, jacks, transformers, power cord/plug, sockets, outlet, and all of the amplifiers other components/parts need to be checked out by an electronic expert to see if the tubes are good, if the tubes are the correct ones, if the tubes are in the correct sockets, and if all of the tubes, tube sockets, capacitors, resistors, jacks, transformers, power cord/plug, sockets, outlet, and all of the amplifiers other components/parts are good and operational before the amplifier is powered-up, tested, used, worked on, modified, connected to any other equipment, connected to a power source/supply, upgraded, connected to any speakers, etc. Likewise, I have no idea whether everything is original or not in the above-listed equipment and I therefore cannot make any warranties regarding originality. In this regard, I do not know if any of the parts, power transformer, output transformers, capacitors, resistors, jacks, sockets, outlet, and all of the other components used in the amplifier are original or if they have been replaced at some time in the past. I also do not warrant that this amplifier is complete and I do not know if there are any missing or incorrect parts/components, etc. The item “RARE & BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE PACKARD BELL EL84 STEREO TUBE AMP AMPLIFIER (UNIQUE!)” is in sale since Sunday, October 13, 2019.
