Up for auction is a good condition integrated stereo tube amplifier. Missing top vover, has bottom cover, and no
dents, dings, etc. A bit dusty but no tarnish or rust. uses (4) 6BM8 and (3) 12ax7s. Powered up using a variac
with a borrowed rectifer tube (6CA4) and the caps stayed cool. couldn't test the unit because I have no 6BM8
tubes and there's no preamp out to test the preamp stages. So this unit is sold with out tubes and AS-IS.

No time to fix and use so it's being sold with my other units. all are easy to fix. This one should be a matter
of adding 8 tubes. Note that there's very little information on this unit, so you'll need to buy a schematic.

Other notes: While there is a set of phono inputs for mag I don't think the circuit supports this - not enough
triode gain stages to support both line and low-level phono. You'll need a phono preamp if you use a turntable.

Also, please be careful if you poke around the guts, the voltages are lethal if you make a mistake.

If I had the time, I'd rewire this for 6BQ5s - the final stage output impedance is about the same,
the challenge is to re-engineer the 6BM8's internal triodes with external circuitry. You could do this
with a SS op amp and go to twon.

Reserve is 100 due to its good condition.

This weighs close to 20 pounds without packing and will cost a lot to ship - save shipping if you pick up
locally.

thanks for looking


On Apr-01-11 at 10:43:26 PDT, seller added the following information:

Please note that this unit is untested (I have no 6bm8 tubes nor would I buy them just for a test) and
will require a full and thorough test of a tube amplifier. There may be failed components, shorts, opens,
intermittent connections, crud on any and all input and output jacks, terminals, etc. don't assume that
it is only missing tubes. You may be lucky but don't count on that - better that you buy a lottery ticket
with that kind of luck.

I do not want a email saying " I plugged brand new tubes in and it didn't work"

This is an UNTESTED and therefore NON-WORKING unit and ABSOLUTELY requires a
tube expert to review, fix, test, and explain how these work BEFORE you TURN IT ON
( ** YOU WILL BLOW THE TRANSFORMERS IF THERE'S NO LOAD ** )

IF THIS WERE A WORKING AMP, IT WOULD START AT $100 and
NOT BE THE RESERVE AND POSSIBLY THE FINAL PRICE.

Again to repeat myself - this is a fix-it-yourself, no emails about it not working,
and absolutely NO returns.

Sorry to sound crabby but way too many questions assuming it's a perfect working
amp.
