INTEGRATED AMPLIFIERS

SANSUI AU-719 *SOLD* - COMPLETELY disassembled and fully restored. It's been recapped using high quality Panasonic FC series and Elna Silmic II audio series caps. All of the boards have been re-soldered/defluxed and of course the cursed Sansui glue has been removed (For those unaware: Sansui's glue to hold in some of the larger caps during the soldering process becomes conductive and corrosive overtime). The original RCA jacks were badly tarnished and oxidized so they have been upgraded with gold RCA jacks (For those who care: The existing PCB and ALL holes were used with NO MODIFICATIONS done. The original RCA assemblies can be re-installed by anyone competent with a soldering iron and will come with the amp). All switches and potentiometers have been cleaned using De-oxit and lubed with Faderlube where appropriate. The ALPS volume pot was also carefully disassembled and done. The voltage regulators and bias transistors have fresh heatsink compound as well as the output transistors and drivers have new insulators and fresh heatsink compound. The bias and DC-offset have been adjusted. As for cosmetics, the inside is literally better than new, the face has a small 1/4" scratch to the left of the Sansui emblem, and the case has some what I would call normal wear scuffs from stacking.

YAMAHA CA-610 *SOLD* - COMPLETELY disassembled and fully restored. It's been recapped using high quality Panasonic FC series and Elna RFS Silmic II audio series caps throughout; the power supply filter caps were replaced with high temp United Chemicon. BOTH channel's output transistors have been replaced and of course fresh heatsink compound and new insulators, both channel's driver transistors replaced, bias transistors replaced, bias has been adjusted and all new matched input transistor pairs were also installed and thermally coupled (DC-offset WELL below 5mV). All controls, switches, pots etc.. have been cleaned with De-oxit and lubed with Faderlube where appropriate. The power meters have new blue LED's installed.

NAD 304 *SOLD* - Fully serviced and is in excellent condition. Some re-soldering of dry joints was done, all the heatsink mounted transistors have new mica insulators and heatsink compound, the bias and DC-offset adjusted, and all switches and potentiometers have had the De-oxit and Faderlube treatment.

TECHNICS SU-V4K *SOLD* - Integrated DC amplifier completely serviced. It had damaged FETs in phono stage replaced, fully re-capped including PS filter caps, fresh heatsink compound for STK power IC, all controls/switches have had De-oxit and Faderlube treatment and cracked/dry solder joints were re-soldered. This is fully functional and will be reliable for many more years to come. This is a great little amp and is in excellent cosmetic condition.

PIONEER SA-8800 - Integrated amplifier and matching TX-7800 tuner combo. These units are all original and absolutely flawless without a mark to be found. The bias and DC-offset amplifier adjustments were done and the fluoroscan meters calibration confirmed. This combo will not be separated at this time. Includes a copy of the owner's manual for the SX-8800.

REALISTIC SA-1500 - A complete servicing has been performed including re-cap, amp adjustments, thorough cleaning, and transistors re-seated with new insulators and heatsink compound etc.. This is in like new condition with a very surprising build quality and even more surprising performer.

YAMAHA A-1000 - Features 10 watts of class-A operation and 120 watts AB. The class-A is auto when engaged or can be turned off entirely. This is a full featured integrated with 2 phono connections with both MM & MC with adjustable loading. Both class A & AB bias has been adjusted, the X-amp operation and DC-offset confirmed (DC-offset is under 10mV's ea. channel).

YAMAHA CA-2010 *SOLD* - The TOTL integrated from Yamaha when new. Features 30 watts of class-A operation and 120 watts class B. This amp was all original and never even been opened before. The bias and DC-offset have been adjusted (new bourns trimmer resistors) and the meters calibrated. All electrolytic capacitors replaced (Panasonic & Nichicon), switches and potentiometers treated with De-oxit and Faderlube including careful disassembly of the Alps potentiometers and cleaned. The original Sanken outputs were re-seated with new insulators and thermal compound. Both the speaker and class-A switching relays were replaced and all the boards have been re-soldered and defluxed (a very labour intensive process in itself). This is an exceptional integrated amplifier with matching build quality that is now ready for another 30+ years of trouble free enjoyment. Except for a couple of VERY minor scratches on the real wood veneer case this is in like new condition.

ACCUPHASE E-202 *SOLD* - What can I say but Accuphase gear is one of my personal favourites and the E-202 is an old classic. An all out restoration on this amp has been done with nothing to spare. I won't list all the fine details but some notable mentions are a complete re-cap (Nichicon Muse & Vishay). The power supply received Nichicon KG Gold Tunes. All problem carbon comp resistors were replaced, the original Toshiba output transistors re-seated with new insulators and heat sink compound, new bourns trimmer resistors throughout, new meter lamps, boards re-soldered and defluxed, amplifier adjustments & meter calibration etc.. There are some nicks and scratches but overall cosmetics are good and is clean clean clean! Includes a copy of the owner's manual.

LUXMAN L-580 *SOLD* - The TOTL integrated amplifier in it's day. This is a beautiful looking amp with the sound to match. This is all original and in literally new out of the box pristine condition. These were known to run hot in the pre driver area. This was addressed later in production and this is one of those later production units. No servicing ever done or required but for all controls treated with de-oxit/faderlube and amplifier adjustments checked. Comes with the original owner's manual.

SANSUI AU-717 - Another fully restored classic Sansui integrated amplifier. Fully recapped with high quality capacitors including Elna RFS Silmic II caps for all audio coupling/signal caps. All of the boards have been de-glued and any affected parts replaced. As a matter of restoration and maintenance, various zener and signal diodes that are problematic with age were also replaced. New adjustment trimmers installed for the bias and DC-offset and of course all adjustments were done. All switches and potentiometers have been cleaned using De-oxit and lubed with Faderlube where appropriate. The ALPS volume pot was also carefully disassembled and done. As good as De-oxit is, some switches such as the rear preamp separate switch were carefully disassembled and physically cleaned for long term reliability. All heatsinked transistors have new insulators and fresh heatsink compound. This is in excellent condition and comes with the often missing rack mount handles and rear bumpers. Includes a copy of the owner's manual as well.

LUXMAN 5L15 - From the TOTL Luxman Laboratory Reference Series. A classic and stylish looking integrated amp with high fidelity at the forefront. The amp has undergone a full restoration and servicing. Restoration included a complete recap including the large and expensive main filter capacitors. The DC-offset and bias have been adjusted, the VU meters calibrated, meters lamps replaced and controls cleaned. The outputs are all original and have been re-seated with new mica insulators and heat-sink compound. This unit is in very nice condition.

SANSUI AU-217 *SOLD* - A great little integrated amplifier from the AU series. This has all the basic essentials required for a nice little listening system when space may be limited and high power is not required.

1122: image 1 0f 3 thumb

MARANTZ 1122DC - From the highly regarded DC series. This integrated amplifier is in like new condition without a mark to be found. It's been recapped using high quality Panasonic and Elna RFS Silmic II audio series caps throughout. All output transistors are original and were reseated with fresh heatsink compound. New speaker/protection relay installed. Various common dry/cracked solder joints redone throughout. All controls, switches, pots etc.. have had De-oxit/Faderlube treatment. This beauty comes complete with original box and packaging.

KENWOOD KA-9100 *SOLD* - Kenwood's TOTL integrated amplifier of the time. A general servicing and cleaning has been done. A new power switch was also installed. Over all this is a really nice condition and perfect working order piece of equipment.
