    I’m selling a lovely vintage Pioneer SA-8500 MK-II Stereo Amplifier.

    Made in Japan

    240v model

    Dual transformer design - The sound signature is typical Pioneer of the period sporting a wonderful analogue experience 

    Specifications below thanks to www.hifiengine.com

    Power output: 60 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo)

    Dimensions: 420 x 150 x 376mm

    Weight: 13.9kg

    The amplifier works as it should on both channels and on all inputs - bias is set to factory spec and the amp has had all its electrolytic capacitors replaced excluding the original power supply capacitors. All controls have been cleaned for smooth and quiet operation. Original NEC output transistors in place.

    Presented in very good cosmetic condition with minor imperfections in line with its age - the lid has some surface rust and serial number engraved I was going to get this powder coated but opted to keep original to let the new owner decide to leave it or have it repainted to their desired colour.

    Overall presents very nice but most importantly sounds wonderful.

    Melbourne pick up only due to the size and weight of this amp

  5. Wanted to buy

    Item - Osborn Eclipse floor standing speakers

    Condition - Used in good original condition

    Price - TBC pending series and condition

    Extra details- Located in Melbourne looking for an original pair of Osborn Eclipse speakers if you have a pair that you are looking to sell please let me know

  6. Sometimes there are errors in the service manual maybe these are the correct ones maybe they aren’t. See if you can check the service manual AND schematic to see what values are listed. If you could see another unit to confirm what’s in it assuming it’s original the first step would be to ensure it’s set to the original design. Goodluck

  7. Lovely speakers in fantastic condition.  Might be worthwhile putting a coat or two of clear on there. I did so with a pair of locally made speakers with fantastic results.
    Mine were chipboard covered in vinyl woodgrain though strangely with the clear coat the wood then looked real, and the grain reflected light as though real.
    They originally had Plessey Rola wide range drivers which I replaced with far better sounding Dayton USA PS220-8 full range drivers.

    They look great I inherited a pair of these myself still with the original drivers great party speaker
