WANTED: Onkyo M-504

Recommended Posts

On a hunt!  Trying to track down a reasonably priced M-504.
Have looked at all the usual places and thought I'd post here as well, just in case...

The specs are impressive on those. You might like the M508 too.

Have had a couple in the past.  As usual, regrets of a sale...
the 508 draws a very healthy penny!

I should have waited a few years to let these go; prices are higher now

Just out of  curiosity, what are you going to hook it up to speaker wise?  If you can find one of the "newer" M-5000R's, that's a healthy contender at 80wpc weighing in at 52-lbs.  That's what I run to my Belle clones as it sounded way better than the VTA ST-70 tube amp.  The under hood of the amp is my avatar.

Will be powering a pair of La Scala.  I already have a gorgeous TX-SV90PRO with rosewood side panels (110 wpc).  The 90 will be used as the pre and is same vintage as the 504.

Gotcha.  That makes sense.

That amp looks great. I would have to take out a loan at the bank to get one lol.

Yeah, I have seller's remorse on a few things too. I still have the M-504, M-508 and one of the preamps. Not sure what model preamp I have, I never have hooked it up.

I have been running a Sansui BA-2000 for a few years in place of the 504. I can't let the Ms go just yet in fear of the regret. 

Since you have had these before, you might already know that recapping them isn't a straight forward R&R job.

Yep...using it and also the C-7000R CD player.  I hardly ever use the CD player, though.
