  1. Have had the pleasure of owning a few of these. If in good condition, cleaned properly and tuned up, it is a VERY beautiful looking and sounding machine. Incredible sound, very nicely organized controls and good looking face panel. Lots of power, little distortion but…very, very heavy. Over 50 lbs, so not very compatible with flimsy furniture.
    But, drives ANY speaker you connect and you can connect a ton of them. If you can get one in good shape, clean it right and treat it well, you will not be disappointed in it.

  2. I have one in perfect condition I am looking to sell if anyone is interested. It was my dad’s and he has passed away and I need to declutter. 785-383-4017
