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: Meridian 506
      Location: Perth 
      Price: $650
      Item Condition: Very good, it doesn’t like scratched cds but performs flawlessly on all others.
      Reason for selling: Not getting much use.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       Sublime sounding cdp from the legends. I was amazed when I bought this at the level of improvement it made in my system. Very high end sound for very little money.
      This was going to be a keeper and I probably will regret this sale, but the reality is since I’ve got the Bluesound Vault this gets very little use. The vault doesn’t sound as good but the convenience of having all my music at my fingertips and the missus listening more means the vault wins 😞. Plus I have 2 other cdp’s.
      I will put the money into a new dac which I hope will improve things.
      Im after a local sale for this as I’m really not keen on posting it. It comes with the remote and generic power cable.
