A little surface corrosion on top of the transformer & interior copper base plate, but that's the QLD hot, humid, climate for you :( . 9.5/10 condition for the exterior. All items were 1 owner.

 

The PM-80SE also come with a pair of German made, Magnat MSP 300 speakers, sealed woofer design. Together with the PM-80SE they sound remarkable IMO. Been running all day & hasn't skipped a beat.

Both items picked up for $338.....Very lucky indeed IMO. The seller said he had many inquiries about separating the amp, obviously so it could be posted. But seller wanted to sell as a package just to get rid of it. After the win, it was just a half hour drive to pick them up.  :D

Interesting amps.

I always thought mine sounded better in Class A/B than Class A.

Class A tended to sound a bit lifeless and plodding [typical of the breed unless you pay serious money].

BTW: The matching CD player (CD80) was/is one of the finest CD players ever made. I modded one a few months back and plonked it into my system. It was the first player I've listened to in quite awhile that made me go: "Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!" A real sleeper.
