This is FM acoustic's top model 801a.
This is pro version of FM 811.
This shares same circuit boards, same Transistors, same transformers etc.
This is twin brother of FM 811.
So performance is same.
This amp is somewhat unbelievable condition.
Look like new...well maintained.
Owner is rich collector, he also has all model of FM acoustics.
So he compared with his FM 811 and this one.
But this 801a sound much better in power, dynamic, and musicality.
Also he compared with 2 other FM 811, but this amp defeated both.
I am not telling a lie.
the owner is selling his collections because he is retired old man.
I am listing for him.
You may think this is exaggeration but..true.
Fm 711, 115, 411 can not be a rival.
If you are FM acoustics owner, and this one is worse than your amp, I will take this back.
I will only charge just 10% of total cost.
You may return within 7 days and if you pay deposit, I can bring to you to compare with yours.
Owner will also sell his Fm 2001a power amp and FM 1000 monos.
FYI. this is totally different amp from FM 801.
Similar appearance but totally different structure.
FM 801 has 12 of RCA CAN type Transistors.
FM 801a has 24 of Epoxy type transistors.
This Epoxy TR is used current amps like 811, 1811, 711 etc.
And this was parallel production of FM 811.
This is not OLDER model of 811.
So I call both are twins.
Sometimes dead unit is on the internet.
almost of them were used in recording studio and does not perform its original ability.
Open to offer.
Feel free to ask.
I guaranty this will perform better than average FM 811.
As you know FM acoustics is magical and ultimate gear in HiFi.
Feel free to ask me and open to offer.
