This is the ORIGINAL Marantz amplifier (model 1 was a preamp), produced from 1956-62. 40 W ultralinear, 20 watt triode. For specs and history. I bought them from a friend and daughter of the original owner about 15 years ago. They had been sitting in her basement since her father’s death some years prior. They had been in the house her entire upbringing. When I bought them, I was told by many people that if I wanted to “flip” them, that I should sell them as-is; but if I wanted to use them that it was imperative to have the components thoroughly tested and refurbished as needed. I very much wanted to used them, and so I had both amps were refurbished by Mike Samra in 2008. I have enjoyed them ever since. I just had them inspected by Benny Amina at Amina Audio in May 2023. I can provide additional photos for serious buyers.
Pair Vintage Quad II Tube Amps – working, some restoration and updates. Here’s a rare pair of U. Voltage Quad II tube amps. He is the second owner of the amps, but he never used them after purchasing them. Before powering them up, I checked the wiring and resistor values. After slowly powering up on a Variac, I verified some of the operating voltages against the schematic and they were good. The original owner had replaced some resistors, as well as coupling caps. Additionally, one amp’s electrolytic power supply filter capacitor was replaced with the same microfarad value Solen 630V-rated polypropylene film caps. The other amp has the stock electrolytic filter capacitor underneath. The Jones plug input was replaced with an RCA input jack. The amps are rated at 15 watts per channel and are unsurprisingly considered to be a great match with the Quad ESL57 speakers. Art Dudley did a nice review of a pair he restored in Stereophile magazine, April, 2007. Since it has been my experience that buyers have different ideas about whether they want to use modern production KT66 output tubes e. G, Genalex Gold Lion, JJ, Tung-Sol, etc. The other tubes will be included, as well as the power cords. I took videos of each amp playing on my test bench. Contact me and I can possibly send them to you. However, my listing is certainly better than ones that are untested.
