Accuphase T-100 NEAR PRISTINE SUPER TUNER [Expired]


no longer for sale

The Accuphase T-100 AM/FM tuner is considered to belong in the class of the best sounding analog tuners ever produced at any price! This specific tuner has been recapped with Elna Silmic, Nichicon Muse and both ultra high end polypropylene and polystyrene film caps,(see photos). The complete restoration and alignment was performed by Avatar Engineering in 10, 2018. Additional modifications include: Vishay/dale ultra precision resistors in key areas along with a larger capacitance power supply featuring ultra fast recovery rectifiers and polypropylene bypass caps (see photo's). The tantalum capacitors were also replaced with audiograde replacements, along with an upgraded MPX Chip! Cosmetically, the tuner is near pristine and presents quite nicely from the front, top, sides, and frame, some very light scuffs consistent with its age hard to see in photos. The interior looks very clean. All meters, knobs, and buttons were rebuilt and work as they should. Additionally all the lights were also replaced including the dial indictor lamp. I have had throughout the years ( and still own a few) many Mcintosh, Sansui, Kenwood, Day Sequerra etc. tuners, and with the possible exception of the Sansui TU-X1 and the Marantz 10B this Accuphase T-100 beats them all in sound quality, selectivity and sensitivity! The reception is very smooth and tubelike with great treble, midrange and bass. Includes the original power cord. All reasonable offers will be respectfully responded to. Buyer to assume shipping, insurance and PayPal fees. This gem will be professionally packed to insure safe delivery. Please note these tuners are selling at $1300 + in similar cosmetic condition, However they still have the original capacitors in them which are 40+ years old. Even the best capacitors in the world according to the manufacturers claim that they should be replaced at 20 to 25 years of use. There are also some resistors in these units that do need replacement after a maximum of 30 years or so. A professional recap and refurbishment such as the one which was performed on this tuner costs at least $700, just do the math! Thank You No questions have been asked ab
