  1. I have a very nice Luxman C-02 SS pre-amp that was recently restored/re-capped by an excellent tech. This pre-amp is well known for it's phono section, especially with MC carts. It's in excellent condition, sounds great and works flawlessly. It has two outputs which facilitates bi-amping or can be used with a powered sub-woofer. The only reason I'm selling it is I'm getting back into tubes. I'm asking $400 for it plus actual packing, shipping and insurance from Redding, CA 96002. I will include the old parts if the new buyer would like them. Paypal plus the fee or F&F is preferred method of payment. Thank you!
  2. RIP Bob and sincere condolences to his family. A tragic loss to the Klipsch Community!
  3. Thought I would give this a bump to the top for my 60th birthday! Man that sounds old!
  4. I have reduced the price by $50. I am open to reasonable offers. Thanks!
  5. I have a like new Rotel RA-1570 Integrated amp I'm parting with. It is like new, works flawlessly and sounds great! I have the manuals, disc, remote and power cord. It will be packed in the original double box and packing. I will also place it in a third box with bubble wrap for extra protection. It is rated at 120 watts per channel, class A/B, and checks all the boxes for a modern integrated amp. I'm only selling as I'm getting back into the tube gig. Here is the manufacturers description: "Long recognized as a central component in superb yet cost-effective music systems, the integrated amplifier’s job has evolved substantially as many music-lovers have migrated to digital sources. The RA-1570 is one of the best examples of melding classic analog design with contemporary digital circuits to bring all of your sources to life with surpassing fidelity. As typical of Rotel amplifiers, the RA-1570’s circuitry draws on a high capacity power supply based on a Rotel custom designed and in-house manufactured oversized toroidal transformer. In addition to providing an abundance of voltage and current for all operating stages, the transformer’s toroidal shape helps prevent stray radiation patterns from corrupting audio signals as they pass through adjacent circuit stages. Subsequent power supply segments built with tight-tolerance parts including T-Network capacitors provide the exact voltage and current requirements to ensure stress-free signal reproduction. The RA-1570’s input section is substantially more flexible than that found in most integrated amplifiers. In recognition of the growing popularity of digital sources, this amplifier provides a front panel USB input for easy connection of a wide variety of music storage devices including Apple iPods, iPhones, and iPads. A rear panel asynchronous PC-USB input supporting up to 24-bit/192kHz is also provided. In addition, two each coaxial (RCA) and optical (TOSLINK) inputs provide easy connections for LPCM music sources including popular streaming devices with up to 24-bit word lengths sampled at 192kHz. Importantly, it is possible to fix the level on these sources for use with devices that provide their own volume control. Analog inputs include a pair of balanced XLR connectors in addition to conventional RCA jacks. A Wolfson WM8740 stereo D/A converter handles critical conversion from digital data to continuous analog waveforms. The Class AB output stage uses discrete devices to ensure precise reproduction of all signals regardless of origin with virtually any loudspeaker. The power output, a robust 120 Watts per channel into 8 ohms, is substantial as it is a continuous “both channels driven simultaneously” rating fully in keeping with real-world requirements and Rotel’s tradition of providing extraordinary value. User conveniences include separate pre-out/main-in connectors, a highly visible VFD display for set-up, and a precisely calibrated electronic volume control." I am asking $700 plus shipping via FedEx ground and any fees that are applicable. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you, Mark
  6. Bump for a great vintage amp. I know it doesn’t have the pretty lights of the Marantz receivers or a tuner section of course. However, it sounds every bit as good, maybe better, than the similar power receivers at a bargain price. I personally think the asking prices for unrestored 2270’s, 2275’s etc. are getting crazy. But, if they are selling???
  7. The work was recently done by a very competent local tech. All the electrolytic's were replaced with quality modern caps including the filter caps. Other suspect parts were replaced, controls cleaned and lubed. I will include the old parts with the sale. It's rated at 75 watts per channel. It works and sounds great! Cosmetically, it's in excellent condition. I'm asking $500 for local pickup in NorCal. I am willing to meet within a reasonable distance of Redding, CA for the right deal. Shipping is an option for $600 which will included packing and insurance, PayPal plus the fee. Thanks!
  8. Wow, They went fast. Unusual for the tight wads here in far Northern California. I’ll bet somebody from The Bay Area snagged them.
  9. https://redding.craigslist.org/ele/d/redding-klipsch-chorus-2/7138097696.html Rare to find for sale in this neck of the woods.
  10. I have a beautiful pair of Heresy II's that were acquired from the original owner. The cabinets are virtually flawless, one of the grills is not quite as tight as the other. They are not consecutive serial numbers and obviously have different wood grain. The drivers are in excellent condition and they sound great, no issues whatsoever. They are for local pickup in Redding, California 96002, about 140 miles North of Sacramento on I-5. Social distancing will be adhered to. I'm asking $400 for them. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Thank You!
  11. This receiver is no longer for sale. Thank you
  12. Here are some additional pictures. If interested members would like more, please don't hesitate to ask. I will include the original parts.
  13. I have a completely restored Sansui 7000 receiver. It’s rated at 70 watts per channel and has cap-coupled output. This receiver will really wake up your horns! As close to a “tube like sound” that a SS piece can get IMHO. Everything functions perfectly, nice cosmetic condition and all the button labels are present. The work was done by a very competent local tech. I’m asking $500, which is firm, for it plus shipping from Redding, CA. PP friends and family or buyer pays the fee. I will post more pics later today. Thanks!
  14. Well, they look stock to me and no serial stamped in the back of the top panel? Maybe the Belle’s were not stamped?
