I am selling off my father's old A/V equipment after his passing. This unit has been with us over 40 years, I remember it as the centerpiece of his A/V setup as a kid. I suspect my father was the original owner. It has been in storage for at least the past 20 years. I got it out and it works fine with the turntable and TV. Great sound and the appropriate dials and switches alter the sound beautifully. I don't have the other components to check it with. We have a box of extra tubes as well - see image. Overall the unit is in very good condition. This is a component with no case. All knobs turn smoothly and lights are in working order. There is some wear on the knob edges. The power cord is in good condition. The plug is a bit dry and hard, but there are no cracks and it works fine. I have used it occasionally over the past few months.
The faceplate had a crack and has been replaced with an exact replica from Radiodaze.com. It will be shipped in a double box made specifically for this model and purchased from AudioClassics.
Price Reduced to $1750. Researching reconditioned units like this one shows they are selling for $2400 on up so this should put the unit in range for one that hasn't been reconditioned.
