CLASSE AUDIO 70 AMPLIFIER - Good condition, Orig Owner, Lightly used
Stereo component for the audiophile.
“This is one of the original designs of Classe Audio (before B&W took over) and is thought to be one of the best of them. It’s double down in it's wattage which is a sure sign of it's impeccable circuitry design (70w-8ohm/140w-4ohm)”.
Do your research but I’ve included this review and specs for you to start. I’ve replaced most of my system’s components last May, going for a different sound. My stereo had light use, even a time I unplugged all components for about 2 years. On average, played music once a month for hour or two. I retired, made the decision I would try to make music a bigger part my life, and decided to go with a different sound in several components this past year. This unit (solid state and built to military specs) has been a great and dependable performer since I purchased retail new Sept ’93 at $1,294. There has never been any work needed or done on this unit. Shipping is additional. Carrier is Buyer’s choice, but I found FedEx less expensive when I sold my ProAc speakers. Dimensions 17.25 x 9.5 x 20.5. Insurance to ship to buyer included in sale price. Original owner manual, sales brochure, power cable & Allen wrench. In one of the two top surface photos you’ll see I tried to remove what I thought was an external speck and found it was not removable, leaving a dulled finish. The second photo shows another tiny speck that I did not try. The head-on shots show two small nicks on the edge of the face plate - at center and at right (the lighting to better show these). The right face plate’s vertical edge has slight nicks, the left plate vertical edge also. Right side small blemish. I think these last three photos are hypercritical and not very apparent on normal viewing and lighting. There are no surface scratches, only edge nicks. Happy to provide more photos. Payment is via PayPal.
