This Mitsubishi was slightly modified with an IEC ,new power switch and 5 way posts
by one of our very own. He can speak up if he chooses

It also has new power supply caps and a few select small signal elecrtrolytics changed out as well. A very well made with more reserve than most ss amps I've serviced - barely breaks a sweat with any load. A keeper if you can find one - surprisingly smooth sounding for an 80's class AB ss amp
Thanks to AVnerdguy

i owned one of those mitsu amps - absolutely fantastic.  competitive w/any modern s/s amps at 10-20 times the price of what these sell for, imo...

I received a PM from a member who "really" wants my G-4500 pictured earlier.
So we are going to swap some gear. I know this will make a good guy happy  :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

My good friend has this receiver in a combo unit where the preamp and amp can be separated and he is interested in selling it. It is mint.

PM me and we can get it done..........

Wayner you might be referring to a Sansui G-22000 or a G-33000. If that's the case I'm afraid that's out of my price range. They can go into the thousands for those units just like the Pioneer SX-1980

Not the LS9's, the blue Design Acoustics peaking out from behind them! Dodecahedrons... Yeah, Baby!



Collins 12S turntable


One of pair of restored Knight KB-85 kit amps.



Sort of vintage, sort of not. They started life as a pair of Eico HF-12 mono integrated EL84 amps (late 50's) but Gary Dodd reworked them using the iron into a non battery version of his battery powered amp.  These little guys are stunninglly good.

i am partial to the marantz 18 and 19, as they have the best tunas inside - the 20 & 20b.

this is a bad pic of my 18 (shown earlier); its color is not really so distorted.
