This is a rare pair of High Fidelity Ampex 6L6GC Monoblock Amplifiers with Triad output transformers. To custom wind the output transformers for their home console amplifiers to their specs back in the late 50's. That is what makes these amplifiers very special and unique in their ability to reproduce amazingly lifelike sound.These consoles were marketed to the "well healed" consumer back in the heyday of hi-fi. The retail price of these consoles was comparable to that of an automobile at that time.
These amps, like their 6973 and EL34 console amps, have flown under the radar of most audiophiles since they were produced back in 1959. The consoles these amps were produced for was Ampexes only venture into the retail market. Ampex was renown for its high quality professional studio playback equipment back in the day. These amplifiers were not built to be pretty, as they were hidden away in the back of the consoles, but the.Chassis of this pair have been repainted and are quite presentable. These amps were brought up slowly on a variac and bias nicely, have no hum, and the transformers run cool. All tubes are vintage US or Euro and test good. They sound very good, with impressively tight bass, have an amazing realistic midrange and crystal clear highs, even tho they appear to have all of their original capacitors. Upgrading the power cords, RCA's and a few resistors, and replacing the original caps with high quality POI capacitors of your choice will result in pure audio nirvana. These are plug and play, but should be gone through before being put into daily use.
