Don't be put off by the 16-18w & low Model number, this is a lot better than you'd expect a 1974 16-18w amplifier to be.
Multivoltage, no DIN for Tape version with Vinyl Wrap on Wood full case.
Now Recapped & Upgraded it has a sound way beyond what you'd expect & a proper bass for our upgrades. We've upgraded this to a certain level not to outprice the amp to resell, if we see there is a lot more potential in this, if a lot more work to get that far. For how it sounds now, it'll impress for sure.
We put 2x 15000µf main capacitors, a big upgrade from the 3300µf. Last one of the CR-400 we sold in 2017 we left the originals, if since we've found the main caps are going past good on some amps, so to renew them to keep the amp good for years.
Condition is Nice Grade, Top Lid has a few marks as shown, this would look so much better done in Weood Veneer, American walnut on the bigger models. Fascia is Top Grade. All 4 bulbs are originals & still working, if how long these bulbs last can't be predicted, if new ones can be found on ebay Germany. The two meters are a little aged inside on the left corners as shown. Can run 2 sets of speakers with the usual limits as shown.
On Speakers, our 15" Tannoy Golds it matches well, with a pleasing sound with wide stereo. Bass isn't deep & strong at 15w but it's clean & not lumpy sounding. No noises on turn on or off on speakers, no relay in this amp. a good buy & far ahead of a starter amp.
All works, FM Stereo with ease, AM, Phono & Aux inputs.
A typical sized amp 445mm wide x 156mm high x 299mm deep if 335mm Max Depth inc fittings.
THE AMP ITSELF WEIGHS ABOUT 9.5KG
