When i was a kid i found a silver solid state Pioneer power amp and pre at the auctions that was quite high end and looked similar.
The sound was amazing!

That is one of the best restoration I have ever seen. Its in better than brand new condition.

 

It was nice to see that this tech will cover the entire faceplate with masking tape before working on any vintage unit. And that love towards vintage units reflects in rest of his work too.

 

Never thought you will sell this beauty ! GLWTS.

      Item Condition: Great Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Korumburra but can deliver to Melbourne South East State: Victoria Payment Method: Cash , Bank Transfer Reason for selling: Upgrade Further information: The SPA2-150 is in excellent working condition & has no visible marks.This power amp was the top of the range model at the time when ATC launched their passive speakers with RRP of $12000 here in Aus. It has both Balanced and RCA inputs. I have been running my Paradigm Tributes with this Amp and It makes them sing. I have just sold my ATC Pre and have the opportunity to upgrade hence putting this on the market. Price is firm. I can deliver to Melbourne South Eastern suburbs.
      SPA2-150 – Discrete Stereo Power Amplifier
      Hand built in the UK. Dual Mono design. 150W into 8 ohms. Balanced. Output Power into 8 ohms: 150W
      Input Sensitivity: 1.2V
      Input Impedance: 10k ohms
      Frequency Response: 5Hz – 200KHz ±0.1dB
      Signal / Noise Ratio: >110dB
      Crosstalk: >105dB
      THD: >95dB/0.0018%
      Dimensions (HxWxD): 146x440x426
      Weight (HxWxD): 26kg / 57.2lbs
      More Information below :-
      The SPA2-150 uses a grounded-source output stage to deliver over 200 Watts per channel, driven by a buffer based on the discrete gain block which enables the SCA2 pre-amplifier to deliver such astonishing performance figures. Used in this way to drive the FET output stage, distortion components are more than 95db down under any conditions, ensuring totally clean and transparent sound with the effortless dynamics for which ATC is justly famous.

      Input to the amplifier utilizes a similar discrete gain block and offers both XLR-Balanced and RCA-unbalanced capability for universal system matching. This input buffer, which completely eliminates integrated circuits, achieves the same levels of transparency as the famous ATC SCA2 pre amplifier.

      The output stage of the SPA2-150 is continuously monitored by microcomputer and a carefully programmed limiter prevents amplifier clipping and protects loudspeaker drive units.

      Front panel indication of limiter operation is provided separately for each channel. Additionally the amplifier is monitored for over-temperature and DC offset.

      Construction is Twin-Mono, with separate high capacity mains transformers for each channel. The FET output stage is very fast and layouts follow best RF practice, with direct signal-paths and direct low-impedance power supplies.

      Remote control of the SPA2-150 is possible using the SCA-R remote controller, or any other standard RC5 device. High quality connectors are used throughout including massive WBT terminals. Styling is complementary to the SCA2 with high quality, peened, stainless-steel covers atop machined aluminium corners.
