Early Pre-Amps are great

Yesterday was a good day at the shop, I figured out how to repair a modern piece of equipment (not Marantz) that had a chip level board control problem and FedEx dropped off a package.

Inside was a really well packaged Marantz Model 33 Pre-Amplifier. I have another Model 33 that I have rebuild and I use it with a 100 wpc Model 16B Amplifier. The Model 33 was the second solid state pre-amp that Marantz designed, it came out after the 7T.

The Model 33 pairs with either a Model 16, 16B or Model 32 Amplifier. Inside you you will a well laid out unit which is easy to work on. There's a single power supply board and a matching pair of tone boards. One of the nice features of the model 33 is the separate headphone amplifier with its own headphone volume control.
