Solid state version of the classic tubed 7C. Was styled and voiced by Saul Marantz and Sid Smith to replicate the 7C visually and harmonically. Have also owned several tubed 7C preamps and this one is a close match sonically. Preamp is very holographic and musical timber is stunning.
One of the best sounding pieces made in the 1960s. Construction is aircraft grade - I used to work in that industry and this thing is built just like an F4 gyroscope inside. Beautiful look and hand- selected transistors. Not the least expensive 7T out there but earlier SN. 7/10 Cosmetic: Very Good overall condition.
Some minor marks on black case. Face has some minor marks especially around power switch and nicks on top edge.Function: Controls cleaned with Caig Deoxit and Caig Gold and quiet.
