I plugged in variac and dialed up to 85 volts. The amp powered up, but then I smelled something burning. I shut down immediately before testing further.Some of the pictures show the amp powering up. So, this amp needs some services before daily use. The reduced price reflected the condition it is in. I do guarantee the transformers to be good. Physical condition is good, exactly as shown in the pictures.
As shown, there are rust patches on transformers and chassis. It has accumulated a good amount of dust too.
The bottom plate is there, with two feet missing. Very heavy though, about 70 pounds packed. I have other audio equipment, like.
