This component is well engineered and sounds excellent. Cosmetics are excellent and has a lot of class and style. The tubes in the DBA130a are branded Bogen (some are Mullard) except for the 5AR4 rectifier which is National.
It was brought up on a variac and passed a clean signal with no hum or noisy controls. Its built to high standards and to me built better than most Fisher, Scott and Harmon Kardon components. The DBA130A has features not available on many amplifiers of the day. Like Variable Damping , adjustable voltage regulation , power tube balance and hum adjust. The phono stage has 7 EQ positions for a variety of different 78 & LP curves.
All necessary for the serious record collector. There are a few PHONO inputs. Hi Mag / Low Magnetic input and a ceramic/ crystal input.
Inlcludes a copy of the owners manuals. The DB 130A manual is necessary to Damping factor adjustment procedure.... Bogen actually made a Stereo Adapter to link 2 mono amps together that provided volume and balance fir both at the same time. Although working it should be gone over by a qualified tech to be sure there are no leaky caps or out of spec resistors and is up to factory specs.The item "1958 Bogen DB130A 35 watt Mono Tube Integrated Amplifier with Top Metal Cover" is in sale since Monday, February 24, 2020.
