This listing is for a matching Accuphase C-200 preamp and P-300
power amp, listed together because we really don't want to split them
up. Priced at $3000 plus $100 domestic shipping. This will need to ship in 2 separate double boxes.
These, in my opinion, are basically Japanese McIntosh from the
70's if not better, internally similar, hand wired, big meters, very high quality.
Must see the pictures of the insides. We are a McIntosh dealer and
service center and replaced a speaker relay in the amp, nothing else was
needed. We cleaned the units inside and out, Spray cleaned all the
controls and switches in both units, then tested on the bench. All bulbs
From an estate sale, no rebuild history came with it, but at 47
years old some one recapped it at some point or it wouldn't play by now.
Utilization of direct-coupled, push-pull drivers in
all stages of the Accuphase C-200 has vastly improved the
characteristics preceding negative feedback application. This has
resulted in an equalizer circuit with outstanding fidelity and
Employment of complementary - symmetry, Class A amplifiers
in the last stage of the equalizer circuit which utilize rugged power
transistors and are fed by symmetrical dual (positive and negative)
power supply systems ensures wide range input handling capability up to
400mV rms at 1 kHz with less than 0.05% distortion.
The C-200 stereo
control amplifier is equipped with a disc low enhance switch which
accentuates rich bass tones that add to music enjoyment. This switch
offers 0, +0.5 and +1 dB change against the RIAA characteristic curve at
Output voltage of cartridges vary depending upon the
manufacturer. Disc level controls are provided to unify the levels of
Disc 1 and Disc 2 quickly and easily. Disc 1 has provisions for
impedance matching to transformer-coupled moving coil type cartridges.
This is achieved with a 3-point impedance matching switch which provides
impedance selection of 47, 30 or 20 K ohms.
Turntable motor and tone
arm resonance vibrations outside the audible range can still mar sound
reproduction by causing intermodulation distortion in the hearing range.
The C-200 stereo control amplifier is equipped with a subsonic filter
which eliminates such low frequency vibrations below 25 Hz.
directly coupled, special amplifier for exclusive headphone use is
provided to ensure highest fidelity for private listening through
Regardless of the signals handled, the power supply
delivers constantly regulated, non-fluctuating voltages. Even against
normal AC line voltage fluctuations, this power supply is capable of
delivering very stable DC output voltages.
Bass and treble tone
controls, both provided with 10-step selection, plus a further choice of
two turnover frequencies for both, permit selection of practically any
tone variation. This switch permits instantaneous comparison of any tone
adjustment against a truly flat response characteristic.
has a total of 10 inputs and 7 outputs terminal systems which make it
easily adaptable to a wide variety of program sources in almost any
conceivable type of installation.
A total of three tape recorders can
be connected simultaneously. Copying from one tape recorder to another
is possible even while listening simultaneously to another program
source. This is achieved by a separate tape copying switch that is
independent of the tape monitor switch.
Frequency response: 20Hz to 20kHz
Total harmonic distortion: 0.05%
Input sensitivity: 2mV (MM), 200mV (line)
Signal to noise ratio: 73dB (MM), 90dB (line)

Accuphase made the P-300 from 1973 to 1976. It was their very

before starting Accuphase, founded Accuphase on the principle of
building audio components that sounded musical.
150 watts into 8 ohms and 200 watts in 4 ohms using a direct-coupled
complementary symmetrical circuit topology for every stage from input to
output. Its power supply is spec'ed to produce up to 400 watts of peak
power into a 4-ohm load without strain.
The P-300 also has a
sophisticated speaker protection circuit that engages when it senses a
short circuit. This speaker protection circuit also runs a diagnostic
when the amplifier is first turned on, so if the circuit senses an
impedance load below 1.2 ohms it will immediately turn off the
amplifier. According to Accuphase product literature the P-300 also has
"closely selected parts" which translates as no electrolytic capacitors
with metal film caps used even outside the direct signal path.
P-300 has several ergonomic features that make it ideal for a desktop
system. Its front panel has individual volume level adjustments for each
channel. In addition to a pair of stereo inputs on the back of the
amplifier, it has an additional set of inputs on the front behind a
spring-loaded panel. With its two inputs and volume adjustment knobs the
P-300 can function as an integrated amplifier, so you don't need to use
a preamp in the system.
The P-300 also has provisions for three
sets of speakers (one of which can be used to drive the high-level
inputs of a subwoofer), as well as headphones. It has two large back lit
power level meters with buttons for three separate meter ranges, a
three position output power control with full, 50% and 25% settings, an
ultrasonic filter that rolls off the bass below 17Hz at 18dB per octave,
and finally a switch to select the front or rear inputs.
Power output: 150 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo)
