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.
