Exceedingly rare VFET  amplifier. Japan only manufacture by the renown --  Victor Company of Japan.  Known as Victor  in Japan, you may know the manufacturer as the exported brand JVC.  

 

The amplifer uses 4 pairs of NEC Vertical Fet Devices.  Manufacture - 1975- 1977.  

 

Japan only domestic market amplifier - therefore 100 VOLT Power supply is required. You will require a quality isolated 240v to 100v transformer. DO NOT use 120v or 110v supply to operate this amplifier.  This amplifier is in original condition including the speaker terminals. You will require bare speaker wire or at maximum 2mm pins  to connect speakers. Refer again to the date of manufacture.  

 

Power output - 100watts inmto 8 ohms. Weight - 20kg.  I have driven 8, 6 & 4 ohmn loads with this amplifier without issue.  

 

Beautifully built bolid (beyond solid) piece of audio in remarkable condition. You need to see one in the flesh to appreciate the design and build. A collectors item, that also sounds excellent. 

 

The price is firm. - Thank you.

This looks to be in mint condition and even has a headphone output. This would probably push ahead of my DAC and Cartridge purchase if I had the money.

 

Looks like a glorious piece of kit mate. GLWTS

It looks so modern, I cannot believe the condition for 45 years old. Totally stunning congratulations on keeping it so perfect for so long. GLWTS.

This amp is a very good sounding amp.  No tranistor harshness . Very smooth and detailed

I auditoned Steve's amp on a very good horn system,  comparing it to highly considered Sony  TA-N78 100 watt Vfet amp.

They both sounded great with a very similar sound signature.  On the night if you had to pick a winner the Victor

was the prefered, just edging out the Sony by sounding little more organic.  

For the price, when considering the sound quality the Victor is a bargain.

This is the second one I've seen for sale this year. The other one was on Gumtree. SA I think, not sure.

Avoid if possible. This has been listed on SA Gumtree for at least 12 months. He is a well known dealer in used hi fi gear in Adelaide ( one of about 4 who control the whole market ) and isn't really wiling to negotiate price changes so it remains stupidly over priced.

  When contacted he is very vague about servicing and providence. I would avoid him and definitely go for the OP's listing.

@rantan Thanks for the heads up.  Yes I would be going for The Fez's if I was allowed to . SWMBO tells me I have too much gear already .

      these are excellent wall mountable surround speakers and make a stunning HT system. You could also use them for music listening if you wanted as you can purchase stands 
       
      they are in good condition, but not excellent. I would say a 7/10.
       
      I have 3 of these for sale so would make a great LCR. Original shipping box for one of them and the other 2 will be bubble wrapped and in a generic box
       
      local pickup is preferred. Retail is around $395 each

       I have for sale a beautiful set of Dynaudio C4 mk2 speakers.
      These have been replaced by the new Cf50 Dynaudio costing $50,000 so if you would like to own these awesome end game speakers
      at newly a quarter of the cost of the new Cf50s then these may well be for you!
      These Mk2s are the same as the Platinum and the signature in sound with the same world renown Esator2 tweeters and refined cross overs.
      You know you want to so go on!

      These are brilliant surround speakers and are also good enough to use on their own. They are in very good used condition, so just the usual light marks. Grills are immaculate 
       
      I am happy to ship, but do not have original packaging, so will be bubble wrapped and in a generic box. Would prefer local pickup 
       
      retail is $1,175
