    @Limberpine  the real advantage of the Vertical Cornwall is that you can lay them on their sides , and  the mids -tweeter are then in a horizontal position similar to a CW1 , although at the far left  , and right ,  these speakers are 1 left and 1 right speaker , and the motorboard cutout on each speaker is different .

    Well I wont be able to lay them on their side in our living room unfortunately

    Thanks Randy,

    I was gonna have him do it but after some research I think not....

    Did you find that people didn't like the amps he builds? I have considered buying one of his amps, so I'd love to hear what your research turned up. 

  3. Could also be open to trades plus cash, straight trade if values match up or cash on my side if need be. Mainly interested in vacuum tube monoblocks and power amps designed around the 45,46 or type 10 vacuum tubes (PP or SET), SW1X and Abbas Dacs.

  4. Hi Scott, 

     

    I did not acquire it from Chris Keller. I don't know what the restoration entailed, but might be able to find out.

     

    I took the amp to a local tube amp repair place here in Portland, Or. Dawson Amp Repair. https://dawsonamps.com/

     

    If you call and talk to the owner Matt, he can tell you about what he did to fix the cord and his opinions on the amp from a build perspective.

     

    Can you DM me your email, to send more pics. Its alot of editing to get the pics posted on here due to size limits

  5. This amp is quite rare in the states. It was made in Japan in 1978. The faceplate is perfect and the box is in amazing shape! I had it in with a tech awhile back and he fixed a couple things that were scratchy in the channels.It's good to go now.
     
    I intended to build an office system around it, but that's not going to happen, now that we are going to make the office more of a dual purpose space with a fold out couch in it.

    I have listened to it a bunch, and it sounds fantastic plus it has the ability to run MM and MC carts, but the sirens call of vacuum tubes has me hooked and I must let this go.

    Here is a link with more specs and info:
     
    It's heavy, about 50lbs and to ship it I believe it would need to be in a crate to insure safe arrival. I would be happy to meet within a 200 mile radius of Portland, OR.

    Looking to get $1600 for it. At my price, I'd be willing to pay $50 of the shipping costs.

    Happy to answer any questions

  6. I've had this for under a year and while I am hesitant to get rid of it, I just don't need so many power amps around. I dove head first into audio 1.5yrs ago, ended up with 4 tube power amps, and now need to thin down a bit.

    I just had this in with my tech to fix the power cord and insure everything is running properly. 100% tip top shape.

    The sale will come with 2 quads of 6bq5 halo getters. One GE and one RCA.

    As a bonvoyage, I did a back to back with my Will Vincent St-70 and to my ears this sounds better than the Vincent, it just doesn't sound better than my Sayes SET 45 to me.

    Asking $850 shipped and paypaled, with a discount given to local pickup ( within 150 mile radius of Portland, OR) and F&F. Will be packed very well and insured when shipped.

    Happy to answer any questions.
