[FS] Linear 5/5 Single-Ended El84 Amplifier

    Very reluctant sale of this little treasure from early 1960s.

    5W a side from a pair of EL84s two ECC83s and an EZ81 rectifier.

    83s are a PSVANE and a Sovtek, 84s are Mullards (Mitchum IIRC) and the EZ81 is Mullard. I actually swopped a matched pair of 83s in and it made no appreciable difference so I put the mismatched pair back in. Valves were AVO tested by the previous owner, who had the amp serviced about 15 years ago but didn’t use it thereafter.

    It has bass, treble and balance pots and is quite dinky. I think it looks wonderful.

    Sound is very open, detailed and natural.

    I would love to keep it but I need amps that are more suited to being on all day and it’s just a waste this sitting in a cupboard.

    I can post this in really good solid packaging. Or it can be collected from Edinburgh.

    It owes me £150 and insured post will be about £25 on top.

    Hi, is this still available? I take it that those are rca terminals on the speaker outs, and male rca terminals on the input wires?

    is there any hum?

    I live in Galashiels.

    many thanks

    chartz If it’s broke fix it!

    I built the same in the early 80’s and it was lovely!

    Ahh I didn’t realise it was a kit… is it a 1980s amp styled after the 60s then?

    No I just said I built one from scratch like this, using the same valves and circuit.
    This is probably a late 50’s amp.

    I have made a 40cm RCA to 4-pin DIN interconnect. It’s Van Damme cable terminated with an old Tannoy plug. I will include this in the asking price.
