  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

  3. Had purchased one when they first came out while stationed in Germany 1974. Had it for a long time and made the poor decision to give it to my step-daughter. she sold it for her drug habit. Wish I had kept it. Have been looking for one ever since. Are you looking to sell it and if so for how much.

  4. Ich habe noch einen im gutem Zustand.
    1. Haken : Er knallt die Sicherung raus nach dem ich in angestellt habe (habe Fi ) .
    2. Haken : Gibet net:

    für nen realistischen Preis würde ich ihn abgeben.
