Up for sale is my Yamaha B2 amp with matching C2 preamp. I purchased these together from the original owner. They had been in storage for the past 15 years. I am the second owner. I had them both restored/recapped and the system now sings beautiful together. They have a very special sound character that must be experienced to describe. Beautiful midrange that I've never experienced with solid-state gear. This is probably due to the VFET circuit. Service work to the B2 amp as follows:
-Replaced the 16 small electrolytic caps on the power supply board and driver boards.
-Replaced the 4 adjustment trimmers on the driver boards
-Replaced the 2 protection relays
-Replaced the 4 meter bulbs
-Installed heat sinks on 8 of the transistors on the driver boards since they run very hot
-Contact cleaned the controls and switches
-Touched up questionable solder joints
-Removed the 3 power supply regulators and freshened up the thermal paste
These will ship fully insured in two separate boxes and packed bulletproof. The amplifier is quite heavy. I am going to charge a flat shipping rate of $140.
