DESCRIPTION
Heath W-5M Monoblock Tube amp pair. Peerless 16358 Large Output transformers.
Massive power transformers enable huge musical dynamics.

120 volt North America.

These amps are incredible for vintage amps. Have the bloom, drive, clarity,and dynamics of a 200 watt amp up to medium volume. I have run these on my BW 801s and they sound superb.

Simply the best cost-effective sleeper vintage amps you can find - I have tried nearly all including the big Fisher 50As, McIntosh MC30, MC40, Dynaco MKIII, and Altec 340s. Yes I have also owned many modern tube amps such as Sonic Frontiers, Cary, Audio Research VT-100, 200, CJ, VTL 225, etc.
If you listen at low to medium volume, the Heath sound cleaner and better - more pure and musical!

All new matched Electroharmonix 6L6/5881 power tubes. Signal path capacitors updated. Several electrolytics also changed. Original cans above chassis left in place. Detachable power cords and toggle power switches added. Gold RCA jacks.

CONDITION
Cosmetic: Good. These are 60 years old! Some chips and corrosion and scratches. 7/10 condition appearance. Typical minor chipping on speaker terminal strips and power outlets.
Some additional RTV silicone bedding added to under chassis caps to make very secure.

Function: Works very well. Tubes bias easily in center of range. 8/10 condition.

Overall rated 7/10 due to appearance.

PAYMENT

Paypal and cc (add 3%) or cash pickup.

SHIPPING
Shipped in 2 boxes with tubes removed and packaged inside cages. All in one large box.
$125 insured shipping to USA Lower 48 states. Other destinations and International buyer contact me for shipping costs, please.
Or local cash pickup is fine.

Reason for selling: Don't need it. I am using a set of Radio Craftsmen 500 tube monoblocks. Very similar in character to the Heath - and already hooked up in my system.
