Sirac 50, a rare beast!

 

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vintage-hi-fi-valve-tube-Sirac-amplifier-KT88-English-Pls-Read-Description/293065771012?hash=item443c14c804:g:ZOwAAOSwKaBcwsBf

< Vintage hi-fi from the 1970's. (sold without tubes- to be offered separately later , if/when unpacked)
Not many will have heard of this post industrial appearance , Sirac amplifier which was designed built to beat Michaelson & Austin TVA, Radford STA ,Leak TL50 etc and compete with the very good EAR amps of the period.

The project was started by Chris Rogers, a british hi-fi jouranlist /guru who wanted to recreate/ improve on the classic GEC 88/50 circuit of the 1940-50s (KT88, 50WRMS/ channel)

 

The original circuit was tweaked but most of the effort went into designing superb multi-winding output (and Power) transformers with low interweaving capicitance and very high primary inductance -for excellent bass.
 This was successful.
Some were manufactured in the UK by authorised assemblers , and some kits were sold. I cant say which one this is , but the constructional quality is first class. I doubt there are more than a few of these amps in Australia

 

Will be sold with printed copies of the circuit and all constuctional data , in 3 articles

 

This was stored form 1995 when the owner moved overseas and has only very recently been unpacked.

 

It worked fine at that time it was stoed  , but given the 20+ year storage period , no current guarantees can be given. Please bid on this basis >

The hard part is finding some concrete Tannoys to put in them.

I love the slip in the title.  “Spend it”
Hehe if these were in Newtown NSW and not New Town TAS I possibly would have already.

Incredible bargain. Can't remember the exact figures but that is around 10% of RRP
