Amp has been used, equipment found with it clearly not used. See pictures for cosmetic condition, read further for functional condition and what's included. It had no tubes when found in box, which was not salvageable. I put in these tubes for testing purpose, 3 tubes will come with it: 1. 2 chinese output tubes for you to sacrifice during rebuild 2.The Mullard ef86 pictured test well. (Hickock tv7) No other tubes other than the 3 mentioned. The 2 chinese tubes test well, and will work. I monitored the -47v and brought it up real slow over a half hour period. At about 100vac the 47 looked good but high to -51. The waveform with 1khz at the input looked clean top to bottom as witnessed by Tektronix scope. One output tube began to redplate so i shut down. I used Sencore lc53 to test coupling caps which showed correct value, but lots of leakage at 10 and 8 respectively. The couple others i tested were also leaky.
I replaced both can caps. I found a single that had all 4 sections needed for both sides so the one old vented on just sits there.
I replaced 5 other caps 3 blue are sprague, 2 orange drops of the vintage variety. Note: i did this work not to rebuild it, but to test it. Voltage was good, 500v at 120ac. Slight red plate very slight, on one tube after a half hour.
This amp is not plug and play. The iron is good, and its very quiet but will need a professional to rebuild it. Some of these were kit builds some factory. This amp will need a complete overhaul by a competent tech to ensure it was assembled correctly, and to address the old out of spec parts.
Do not plug this amp in with PRIOR SERVICE unless you like the smell of smoke. I did, but that was while motoring voltage and current draw which was at 1.1a at 115vac which i feel is probably high. Included; The heat shields i removed seen in last pic are included.I removed for cleaning, and because these scratch the chassis. If reinstalled, put bumpers over the edge to they don't marr the paint. Price: This price reflect the cosmetics of this unit not the functionality. I have chosen to list it un-restored to give the new owner options on how they want to do the restoration, as there are many options. If i had 2 in this condition i would not sell this one. I also have a pair of Mac 60 so no legitimate reason to keep it. No smells evident at all with this extremely clean amp, much like the other equipment it was found with. The Mac c8 will also be for sale, which does have the orig box. I'm keeping the NIB 400CX-2 as I've never seen a new one before. Such as myself, rest assure no expense is spared in my packing.
180lb Krell amps, Big Mac amps (glass faceplates) 120lb turntables, reel decks, you name it. I don't sell trinkets or dvs, i collect audio.
When I find something i don't need to keep (yes, i hoard the good stuff) then i sell a piece. Me: You can google my user name for more about me. Let me know if you have any questions, and have a great day. I quit being responsible for other peoples actions when the kids left home.
If damaged, open it in front of the carrier. My packing is bullet proof.
If its damaged it certainly wont be my fault. I do have a day job. Feel free to ask questions.
