Technics SE-A100 Power Amplifier

Recommended Posts

Item: Technics SE-A100 -- 2 Channel Power Amplifier
Location: Langwarrin VIC
Price: $1700.00
Item Condition: Very good
Reason for selling: Thinning the herd
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:

The SE-A100 is generally regarded as a superb amplifier and it introduced the VC-4 Class AA configuration amplifier design. The amplifier was released in 1985, (yen300,000) and was in production to 1989. This example is a 1987 build. The amplifier that followed, the SE-A5000 is simply a facelifted SE-A100. 

 

Class AA is a simple yet brilliant idea. Four amplifiers, two per channel. A voltage control amplifier and a current drive amplifier. The voltage control amplifier is isolated from the load by a "Class AA" bridge. The bridge is a series of resistors in circuit between the Class A voltage amp and the Class B current drive amp. 

 

I sourced this amplifier from Japan. These are very rare amplifiers in any country out of Japan. Technics did export these amplifiers, in numbers I'm not sure of, however over the years I have been researching and looking at this range of Technics power amps, they are rarely for sale in Europe, the United States or any other country. And if you see a nice example be prepared to pay very big $$ for one. Note the "timber" side panels, these were only offered on the Japanese models, all export models are sans timber sides. 

 

Build quality is very good, nice weight at 34kg. Cosmetically, not mint but very nice, straight nothing major, presents very well. The design and presentation of the amplifier is first class. The dark overtones, with the black, with silver highlites, the slightly smoky beveled full glass front panel and the subtle incandescent lights (there are four lights per meter) make for a very attractive and classy piece of audio. 

 

Power ratings 170w @ 8 ohms - 200w @ 6 ohms. 

 

Sound can only be described as amazing. I have a few nice amps and this one is right up there.  It has good authority yet the detail and finesse are there also, really nice. 

 

Please note this is a 100VAC Japanese model. 

Please note this amplifier is pick up only

I have had a few queries regarding shipping. As mentioned I don't want to pack and ship this beautiful amplifier myself.

 

However --  for those interstate and so inclined to pay for freight,  I will deliver the amplifier to pack n send or whatever carrier you think will work for you. Or it can be picked up from my address by said shipping company. Be aware however that the packed weight of this unit could be tipping the scales at close to 40kg... Thanks...

      Item: MrSpeakers Aeon Flow Closed Planar Headphones
      Location: Brisbane

      Item Condition: Mint. 10/10. Maybe 5 hours max on them.
      Reason for selling: Paying off debt, will resort to the poor mans cans for a while.
      Payment Method: Pickup or Post. Paypal or DD or Cash.
      Extra Info:
       
      These are a brand new set sent to me for a warranty replacement. My first set developed a slight channel imbalance, they just sent back a new set instead of repairing. You basically get all the good bits and performance of the Ether C Flow at a much much lower price point. Excellent sound, respond well to the tuning pads or even some EQ. They are super light, combined with the headband design, soft soft pads and clamp force, second in comfort only to the HD800 for all the headphones I've had and tried over the years. Build quality is top notch as with all MrSpeakers.
       
      Comes with;
      - Headphones
      - Cable (3.5mm)
      - Adapter (3.5mm to 6.5mm)
      - Tuning pad kit (black foam, 1 notch white, 2 notch white)
      - 2 additional sets of genuine unused pads (so 3 sets of pads in total, decent bonus!)
      - Hardshell MrSpeakers carry case
      - Authenticity card & cleaning cloth

      Item Condition: Mint condition
      Reason for selling: Slowly moving to valve setup.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal(add 3% extra or as a friend), bank transfer
      Extra Info:
       A classic sweet sounding amplifier from Sansui manufactured in 1970 - 1972. Top of the line model in its time.
      The Sansui AU-999 integrated amplifier was amongst one of Sansui’s early transistorized components after the tube era. The AU-999 was a first as it truly tailored its design and function for the budding audiophile. With heavy Mylar use, precision tone controls with fixed indents, separation features (with a active crossover in mind as well) Full PNP Pre-Amp with a DC priority Power Amp and to top it off..one of the most sweet sounding amplifier Ive ever come across.

      - All original components | no mods | no repair.
      - All switches and knobs cleaned using Deoxit.
      - Fully tested and everything works like new.
      - Comes with original Owners | Service Manual.
      - All lights works.
      - The best stereo imaging I have ever seen in any amplifier.

      Pickup from Cranbourne North. Demo can be done to those who are really interested.
