I brought this amplifier up over the course of 2 days. I'm showing it at full B+ and also showing Bias Voltage. All the Capacitors seem to be holding fine right now, But who knows for how long. None of the plates of the EL84 Tubes are glowing red, Everything seems to be fine for right now.
This unit runs at 117v and can not be ran at any higher Voltage. So you will need a Variac or some form of a Multi-tap transformer that provides 117v at max. This unit has a very pretty faceplate and knobs, But it is missing stock feet and top cover plate as it was used and protected in a Console.
This unit has a Very slight bend in the Chassis that will not be noticed from the front and certainly not if you make a case for the unit. The bow is very slight, But I like to disclose all my findings. This is a Very underrated stereo amplifier that really sounds very nice.
I personally think it's a better amp than some more sought after amps. And don't forget, This amplifier will only go up in Value, So no worries, You'll always have your Value you here.I hope you enjoy her for many years to come.
