JIMJAMSVINTAGEMUSIC brings you this pair of Heathkit W5M mono block tube amplifiers. For some reason cannot get sound from speaker without a heathkit preamplifier plugged into the preamplifier input and then you get output by plugging an audio signal into the rca input. Amplifier has an extra plugin on side of chassis as pictured.
The Heathkit emblem has poles that go through cage and uses clips to secure on, Both clips are missing and one pole is partially broke off and a clip wont work. Has lower audio output than the other amplifier, The higher on a variac the audio starts to get lower and cut out.
Passes an audio signal by just using a jumper to set power to the amp and using an audio signal in the input. Does not need the preamplifier like the first amplifier. Both amplifiers are in nice cosmetic condition.
Both amplifiers have the same peerless 16309 output transformers and power transformer. Does not have kt66 tubes but pairs of sylvania 6l6 tubes that test very good.Has correct 5r4 rectifiers and good 12au7 tubes. Amplifiers are ready for you to update the electronics the way you want to and make a matching pair. See youtube video for amplifiers being demonstrated.
