    Ugh. good luck with DHL. I have been shipping various packages every few weeks for years all over the US and have tried UPS, Fed ex and DHL. Out of those hundreds if not thousands of shipments, DHL was responsible for exactly 2 of them. They lost the 2nd shipment. Was never found...

    Highly recommend FedEx ground if possible.

    This is how the unit looks after disassembly & cleaning. Reglued the dial glass as it fell out when i removed the face pIate. Repaird about 150 bad solder joints. Found 6 faulty transistors that where allowing excessive current draw in the from the power supply. Causing the smoke on tbe driver borads. Waiting on thoes 6 componets. Then it's off to tuner alignment & calabration of all other circuits.

    640w power consumption to oporate the tube heater circuit alone. That is for each of the main amplifiers. The owner has wired a sub panel off of the main electrical panel that is dedicated for the audio system.

    I bought a house owned by an old guy who worked on radio gear for ever. He left this behind. Do you know anything about it ?

    Its a old dynamic tube tester. A very nice one at that becuase it has the capability to test the older type 4 pin hot cathode tubes. 4 pin tubes can date as far back as the 1920s. Along with the more common 12 & 8 pin tubes that are being produced today. Do you have all of the pieces there?

    It looks like brand new, including the cord and the wheel at the bottom that turns.It's in a nice wood box with dove tailed corners, and a handle. It's a portable.

    The case on old test equipment are bullet proof. The wood was used so the device would meet the current goverment regulated electricical safty standards for the time. Also almost every tube tester where potable durring this time. Back then the repair man came to you home and repired your equipment on the spot. It was rare that the technition would take away the guts. Is the text in the scrolling window still readable? Wild you be willing to sell this?

    Late 70ies panasonic boombox. I normally don't work on stuff such as this becuase they are not a device that was meant to be repaird. All it needed was a drive belt and a few capasitors. For testing I recorded a song off of the radio. First time I've done that in about 25 years.

    The text in the window on the scroll looks like it was printed yesterday. It's in perfect shape. I would have no problem selling it or trading. BTW, I'm old enough to remember when the tv repair guy came to our house to repair the old American made Magnavox, also old enough to remember when our family Doctor made house calls. Can you imagine ?

    There are somethings that I can not do anything about when I arrive. Its a rare situation where the only way to fix the systems issues is to move the entire system to bigger space or replace 40% of it with smaller high quality equipment that is more suitable for the current room. This is a direct result of a newbie listing to people who don't know how to spec out a system and have no knowledge of room acoustics or speaker design chaeristics. Plus a owner that believes that bigger is better doesn't help either. Absoultly the biggest waste of 20 + grand I seen in a long time

    Something very special. 1962 Marantz 8B tube power amplifier. This componet was designed and hand built by the man himself Sol Marantz. An absolute marvel of vintage Hi-Fi.
