I am the second owner of this amp (I picked up the amp from the original owner and saw the receipt from a Columbia, SC authorized dealer). The amp works perfectly: dead quiet, smooth and noise-free attenuators. Has never been repaired or shipped, and the relays and speaker selectors work perfectly. I really like the sound of the amp (very listenable and fatigue free), but my Spendor 1/2s just don't need the power and my apartment is too small for extra equipment. The rating is for 2 scratches (one next to the power button and the other on the top plate) and very slight scratching on the top plate lip (see photos). The cover is in excellent shape, and the circuitry is very clean. I do not have the original box but will pack very well for a safe journey. Price is fair and firm. Amp includes original manual.
