RARE 1967 Hilgen Challenger R2024 Tube Amp 112 Combo 7591 Guitar Sano Vintage

The Hilgen amps are very hard to come by as they weren’t really mass produced and were only made for three years. This one is fully serviced with no issues or weird quirks, and ready for years of enjoyment! The Challenger is an 18W all-tube point to point handwired 112 combo with two channels that each have individual volume and tone controls, with onboard reverb and tremolo. The first channel is more Fender-y and has guitar and bright inputs. The second channel is a bit richer and reminds me of vintage Ampeg (which Jack also supposedly helped with designs as they were both New Jersey companies), and has instrument and accordion inputs. All jacks and controls work as should. I replaced the electrolytic caps and one out of tolerance wax & paper capacitor with new audio grade caps. All of the original Mullard mustard caps are still intact!! I also removed the death cap and installed a grounded power supply cable for safety. I cleaned all pots, jacks, and power/rectifier tube sockets. This uses a 6X4 (reverb driver), two 12AX7, and two 12AU7 in the preamp. It also uses a pair of 7591 power tubes and a 5U4GB tube rectifier. This comes with the original CTS 12 speaker that still sounds great also! The reverb is pretty unique as it’s a shorter and slightly brighter one, although it sounds great and works really well with the circuit. The tremolo is currently in Off position and the previous owner couldn’t find the footswitch. Any standard two button footswitch with a 1/4 jack should do the trick though. Cosmetically it’s in pretty great shape for being a little over fifty years old! The original grill cloth and tolex are both fully intact and the faceplate still looks great! One of the rubber feet is partially broken off and it does show some minor wear from age though. If you have any questions, feel free to message me. I will remove the power and rectifier tubes and package them separately inside the amplifier.

I present you one of the best known tube amplifier from my personal collection, the original Mcintosh MC275. This unit is highly collectible since it’s one of the first one ever built in 1961. The MC275 really does not need introduction. It’s the iconic piece of the golden age of stereo hi fi, while still hold its own with the modern gear. It’s one of a few legendary unit that is still in production today. This MC275 has the serial number of 178E1, making it effectively the 325th of the production line. One of the very first unit ever built that still survive to this day. A true piece of audio history that stand the test of time, and still in excellent condition. So here is your chance to own this early MC275 unmolested with all original components (as show in pictures, please study them carefully and judge for yourself). Quad of Winged C 6550. Mixed of vintage telefunken and sylvania driver tubes (more detail can provide upon requested). > All tubes tested strong on my calibrated TV/7U. I only rotated the 275 a few time through my system. While it sound amazing, and play great, the left channel occasionally has a dip in volume. Given its age, and in the original condition that it’s in, it should be service before long term used. The vintage MC275 are getting harder to find now, and I doubt you can find another one as early as this unit available for sale. Especially not in the excellent condition that it is in, physically it’s in near mint shape with only some lettering faded on the back panel. The chassis is clean, with no visible rust. The cage is solid with no dent or rust either. It’s a time capsule for sure. It matches well with Altec, Tannoy, Klipsch, but have no issue driving my Infinity Kappa 9 or B&W either (I did only tested it for a few song since I don’t want to push the tubes too hard). I have a video of it in action if you want to see it. What you see is what you get, there is no other accessories include in the sale. Pictures are of the actual amplifier, please study it carefully and judge the condition for yourself. While I tried my best to describe this amplifier, my description is my opinion only. If you have any question, concern, need more information then please let me know. Capacitor and other components at this age can fail at any time. With this in mind, and for this reason there will be no return accept unless item not as shown/pictured. This is a used stereo receiver in working condition. However due to the nature of vintage electronic, and the few fraudulent buyers out there. With no guarantee of its full function when it arrives to you. Vintage electronics contain 20-50 years old parts (belts, rubber parts, caps, etc) that while still work at the time I tested the unit, can fail at any given time. It can be a few weeks, few months, or I have units in my collection that still going strong after 5 years since I acquired them. Service is recommend before long term use for longevity. As long as the unit come back to me in the same condition it left. Please note that I leave a tampering proof on these unit, that will not effect its function, but will tell me if the unit has been open in anyway. If you want to return please do not open or mess with the unit in anyway. It will be very well packed (double box is available upon requested) and fully insured. Please check my 100% feedback on safe packing. In small chance it get damaged during transit, please take plenty of pictures and contact me before opening up the package.

Rare & Beautiful Vintage Packard Bell El84 Stereo Tube Amp Amplifier (unique!)

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019
Rare & Beautiful Vintage Packard Bell El84 Stereo Tube Amp Amplifier (unique!)

It is truly one-of-a-kind as the photos show and is very attractive and unusual-looking. Ive never seen another one like it! He really made this amplifier into a beautiful piece of equipment with its distinctive red paint and trim-pieces, as well as its silver-colored, cone-shaped centerpiece. The amplifier is very clean, too. DETAILED INFORMATION INVOLVING THE AMPLIFIER. As the photos show, the amplifier has a very distinctive, interesting, and one-of-a-kind appearance and isreally beautiful in my opinion. It would make a wonderful addition to any vintage amplifier collection and please check out all of the photos that I have provided. This is one of the best looking tube amplifiers that I have ever seen! I dont know what the model number of this amplifier is although, when I bought it, there was a small piece of paper with it which said that it was a Model DPA 30-3. This would seem to agree with what I have seen on the Internet regarding this amplifier. I was also told at the estate sale that this amplifier came out of a very large and expensive Packard-Bell stereo console unit. As mentioned above, this amplifier has a really unique and cool-looking appearance. It is also very clean. Check out the bright red-painted transformer and the red/silver trim-pieces decorative trim pieces along with the silver-colored, cone-shaped centerpiece at the front of the amplifier! Ive never come across an amplifier that looks as cool as this one does and, in my view, its former owner did a wonderful job in giving the amplifier a very unique appearance. The amplifier does have some discolored areas (rust spots), scuffs, scratches, bends, scrapes, marks, stains, dings, dents, rough spots, etc. On it from age, use, etc. However, many or most of these items are too small to be picked up by the camera in the photos. It is a very distinctive and nice-looking amplifier in my view and please check out the photos for a variety of different views of this amplifier. Located on the top surface of the amplifier is a pair of jacks, the main red-painted power transformer, and 2 output transformers (with both of the output transformers having the same code numbers on them). There is also a large black plastic socket on the top surface of the amplifier. From what Ive seen on the Internet, this socket was used to connect the amplifier to other electronic components used in the stereo console from which the amplifier came. I know nothing about these jacks and socket, and I also do not know if they work, how they work, what they are supposed to do, if they are correct, if they are functional, if they are original, etc. There is no on/off switch or other controls on this amplifier. I also do not know if the power cord/plug is original or not. There is also a really cool-looking red/black painted plastic name-plate on the top surface of the amplifier which says PACKARD BELL ELECTRONICS on it along with a PB logo. This name-plate is really interesting-looking! It does have some paint chipping here and there and it is somewhat warped. In addition, I dont know how it is affixed to the chassis (possibly using some kind of adhesive but I dont really know). In any event, however, the name-plate is really nice-looking in my view and check it out in the photos that I have provided. As mentioned above, the main transformer is painted a really cool and bright-looking red color. The front of the transformer has 2 decorative trim-pieces made of what appears to be wood which has been painted red and silver. Likewise, there is a plastic silver-colored, cone-shaped centerpiece between the two decorative trim-pieces at the front of the amplifier. There are some scratches, scuffs, scrapes, etc. On the transformer, trim-pieces, and centerpiece but, in my view, I think that they look great! In combination, they give the amplifier a very cool appearance and Ive never seen another amplifier like it. I dont know how the trim-pieces and centerpiece are attached to the amplifier chassis (possibly using some kind of adhesive but I dont really know). They do look really cool in my view and I think that the former owner of the amplifier did a great job with them. On the right side of the amplifier, there are 2 more jacks, an outlet, and two more sockets. I know nothing about these jacks, outlet, and sockets, and I also do not know if they work, how they work, what they are supposed to do, if they are correct, if they are functional, if they are original, etc. Regarding the tubes which are included with the amplifier (and came with it when I bought it), they are all Packard-Bell brand tubes and it is quite unusual in my view to have all tubes with the same brand on them that is on the amplifier. The tubes are as follows: (A) 6BQ5 (EL84); (B) 6BQ5 (EL84); (C) 6BQ5 (EL84); (D) 6BQ5 (EL84); (E) 7025; (F) 7025; and (G) 5U4GB. I did not test these tubes and I therefore do not know if they are good or not. Likewise, the graphics are smudged/missing/faint on one or more of the tubes. However, I dont know if these are the correct tubes for this amplifier and whether or not these tubes are in the correct sockets in the photos. I also did not check the tube sockets and I likewise cannot warrant or guarantee that they are good, original, and operational. Accordingly, I will again leave all of the issues with the tubes whether the tubes are good, whether the sockets are good, what sockets the tubes should be in, etc. Also, I have no idea if the wiring in the amplifier is correct or good and I dont know anything about the transformers used by the amplifier if they are correct, original, good, etc. Regarding the electronic components used by the amplifier, I have provided an underside view of the amplifier in the photos which shows various components, wires, etc. In summary, this amplifier is, in my view, really great-looking, clean, impressive, and has a very distinctive retro appearance. It is really unique, beautiful, and one-of-a-kind in my opinion. It is one of the coolest-looking tube amplifiers that I have ever seen. I believe that it would make a wonderful addition to any vintage amplifier collection and a really fun item to own! I have not done anything to this amplifier and all of its parts, transformers, wires, electronic components, tubes, sockets, power cord/plug, capacitors, resistors, jacks, outlet, and all of its other components and I know nothing about their condition. The above-described amplifier may have been worked on, repaired, had parts replaced/repaired, and/or been modified by someone else in the past, but I dont know whether this is true or not. In this regard, I have done nothing to this amplifier and I have not inspected it internally or externally. However, I do not know how much work, parts, wires, wiring work/replacement, repairs, rewiring, upgrading, power transformer(s), output transformer(s), electronic components, power cord/plug replacement, additional parts, tubes, jacks, sockets, outlets, resistors, capacitors, etc. This amplifier is quite heavy. While I will pack this item very securely, some of the wires, components, parts, capacitors, resistors, sockets, transformers, jacks, power cord/plug, name-plate, outlet, resistors, capacitors, etc. Furthermore, some of the paint, silver color, etc. However, I will do my best to try and prevent these situations by very carefully packing this amplifier although I cannot guarantee that they wont happen. Please make a note of this. Furthermore, all of the tubes, tube sockets, capacitors, resistors, jacks, transformers, power cord/plug, sockets, outlet, and all of the amplifiers other components/parts need to be checked out by an electronic expert to see if the tubes are good, if the tubes are the correct ones, if the tubes are in the correct sockets, and if all of the tubes, tube sockets, capacitors, resistors, jacks, transformers, power cord/plug, sockets, outlet, and all of the amplifiers other components/parts are good and operational before the amplifier is powered-up, tested, used, worked on, modified, connected to any other equipment, connected to a power source/supply, upgraded, connected to any speakers, etc. Likewise, I have no idea whether everything is original or not in the above-listed equipment and I therefore cannot make any warranties regarding originality. In this regard, I do not know if any of the parts, power transformer, output transformers, capacitors, resistors, jacks, sockets, outlet, and all of the other components used in the amplifier are original or if they have been replaced at some time in the past. I also do not warrant that this amplifier is complete and I do not know if there are any missing or incorrect parts/components, etc. The item “RARE & BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE PACKARD BELL EL84 STEREO TUBE AMP AMPLIFIER (UNIQUE!)” is in sale since Sunday, October 13, 2019.

Rare, Beautiful, & Unusual Vintage Rheem Stereo Tube Amp Amplifier (unique!)

Yes, the same Rheem that makes air conditioners! I’ll bet you didn’t know that they made tube amplifiers at one time! I was told at the sale that it came out of a very large and expensive stereo tape recorder unit. The amplifier has a unique, impressive, and distinctive appearance and is very clean-looking. It would make a great addition to any vintage tube amplifier. Please check out this description very carefully which provides many details about this very unusual amplifier. Also, I have provided many large pictures. DESCRIPTION OF THE AMPLIFIER. As the photos show, this amplifier has a very impressive look to it, is very clean, and looks quite unique. Please check out all of the photos that I have provided. The amplifier chassis including the power transformer, output transformers, and other components, etc. Does have some discolored areas/spots on it, as well as some scuffs, scratches, bends, scrapes, stains, dings, dents, etc. However, most of these items are too small to be picked up by the camera and, in my opinion, this amplifier looks really good for its age especially for an amplifier that is 50+ years old! And Ive tried to show the amplifier from all views and angles so that you can see it (including some close-up photos). It also has a very retro and interesting industrial look to it. On the front of the amplifier, there are a number of items. First, there are two pairs of silver-colored metal knobs on the front, with each pair involving a larger outer metal knob and an small inner metal knob on top of the outer metal knob. There are also 2 meters labelled VU which are very interesting looking. There is also a white slide switch, as well as 3 jacks and a toggle switch. I do not know what these knobs, meters, jacks, slide switch, and toggle switch do, if they are correct, if they are functional/operational, if they are original, and if they are good or not. On the top surface of the amplifier chassis, there are a number of items which all have various numbers, letters, and words associated with them that are stamped directly into the metal surface of the chassis. For example, there is an outlet which is labeled MOTOR (117 V). There are also 2 pairs of jacks, with one of these pairs being labeled RIGHT CHANNEL and the other pair being labeled LEFT CHANNEL. One of the jacks in each pair is labeled E and the other jack is labeled R/P. There is also a shaft sticking up from the amplifier chassis, the function of which I do not know. I do not know what any of these jacks, outlet, and shaft do, if they are correct, if they are functional/operational, if they are original, and if they are good or not. Regarding the tube sockets (there are a total of 5 sockets), 2 of them have 12AT7/ECC81 next to them, 2 of them have 6BM8/ECL82 next to them, and 1 of the sockets has 6CA4/EZ81 next to it. Regarding the tubes which are included with the amplifier (and came with it when I bought it), they are as follows (see the photo of the tubes): (A) 6BM8 (B) 6BM8; (C) 6CA4; (D) 12AT7; and (E) 12AT7. Likewise, the graphics are smudged/missing/faint on one or more of the tubes. Regarding all of the tubes listed above, I did not test them and I therefore do not know if they are good or not. I did check all of the tube filaments with a continuity tester and continuity was present in all of the tubes. In addition, I did not check the tube sockets and I likewise cannot warrant or guarantee that the sockets are good, original, functional and operational. There is a black metal plate which is secured to the rear of the amplifier and covers both the rear and bottom of the amplifier chassis as shown in the photos. There are a number of graphics, etc. On the plate which identify various items as discussed further below. The plate has some scratches, scrapes, dents, dings, scuffs, bends, etc. On it but, as the photos show, it in appears to be in very good condition in my view. Likewise the graphics on the plate are clear and also appear to be in nice condition in my opinion. Please check out the close-up photos of this plate which show the various elements, graphics, etc. Although I dont know if this is correct or not, it appears that at least 2 extra holes were drilled in both the plate and the rear of the amplifier chassis by the amplifiers former owner in order to be able to secure the plate to the amplifier using screws and nuts. Likewise, when the amplifier is lifted up, the plate doesn’t totally contact the front bottom edge of the amplifier but, when the amplifier is put down, the plate contacts some, most, or all of the front edge of the amplifier depending on the type of surface on which the amplifier is placed (see the photos of the front of the amplifier for more information). Furthermore, the plate is attached to the amplifier only in the rear using the above-mentioned screws and nuts, and is not attached at the front of the amplifier. As mentioned above, the rear of the amplifier includes a number of items which are identified by the various graphics on the above-described metal plate as shown in the photos. First, there is a socket labeled AC POWER. Next, there are two small holes which evidently provide access to controls inside the chassis. One hole says RIGHT HUM ADJUSTMENT and the other hole says LEFT HUM ADJUSTMENT. There is a 2-position slide-switch which is labelled EXTERNAL SPEAKERS, with the left position having OFF next to it and the right position having ON next to it. Beneath this switch are two jacks labelled EXTERNAL SPEAKERS (the left jack having RIGHT below it and the right jack having LEFT below it). There is a another pair of jacks which are labeled PREAMP OUTPUTS, with one of the jacks having R next to it and the other jack having L next to it. Furthermore, there are 2 additional pairs of jacks. The first pair is labelled EXTERNAL AMPLIFIER OUTPUTS (PREAMP OUTPUTS), with the second pair being labelled PHONO OR RADIO INPUTS (FM MPX INPUTS). Each of these pairs of jacks has one jack which is labelled R and the another jack that is labelled L. I do not know what these jacks, switch, socket, and controls do, if they are correct, if they are functional/operational, if they are original, and if they are good or not. I have provided an underside view of the amplifier so that you can see its wires, components, parts, etc. As discussed later in this description, I have no idea if this amplifier is complete, if it works, if it has been worked on by someone else in the past, if some or all of its parts have been changed, if it has all of the correct and original parts, if it has been modified, etc. Please also note that this amplifier does not have any side panels or plates and, likewise, does not have any top cover or cage. In addition, the chassis includes a fuse and a light bulb which are located under the chassis. I did not remove the fuse and bulb, did not test them, and I dont know if they (along with their respective sockets/holders), are good, if they are the correct ones for this amplifier, if they are functional, if they are original, etc. Using a continuity tester, I did check for continuity across the terminals of the fuse holder which contains the fuse and also checked for continuity across the terminals associated with the socket which contains the bulb. Continuity was present in both cases. Likewise, there are 4 felt-type pads on the bottom of the metal plate to which the amplifier is attached. The pads cover various holes in the bottom of the plate and appear to have been applied by the former owner of the amplifier but I don’t know whether this is true or not and I don’t know anything more about the pads and their origin, function, etc. In summary, this amplifier is very impressive and interesting-looking. Likewise, it is very clean and has a distinctive appearance. Ive never seen another one like it! It would be a wonderful addition to any vintage amplifier collection. I have not done anything to this amplifier and all of its parts, transformers, wires, meters, outlet, electronic components, tubes, sockets, capacitors, resistors, jacks, controls, switches, bulb, fuse, fuse holder, and all of its other components and I know nothing about their condition. The above-described amplifier may have been worked on, repaired, and/or modified by someone else in the past, but I dont know whether this is true or not. In this regard, I have done nothing to this amplifier and I have not inspected it internally or externally. However, I do not know how much work, parts, wires, wiring work/replacement, repairs, rewiring, power transformer(s), output transformer(s), electronic components, a power cord/plug, outlet(s), meter repairs/replacement, controls, tubes, jacks, sockets, switches, resistors, capacitors, bulb, fuse, fuse holder, and other components, etc. It is quite heavy. While I will pack this item very securely, some of the wires, components, parts, sockets, transformers, jacks, switches, controls, sockets, bulb, fuse, fuse holder, outlet, resistors, capacitors, meters (and/or meter parts), knobs, etc. However, I will do my best to try and prevent these situations by very carefully packing this amplifier although I cannot guarantee that they wont happen. Please make a note of this. Furthermore, all of the tubes, tube sockets, capacitors, resistors, jacks, transformers, other sockets, controls, switches, bulb, fuse, fuse holder, outlet, and all of the amplifiers other components/parts need to be checked out by an electronic expert to see if the tubes are good, if the tubes are the correct ones, if the tubes are in the correct sockets, if the bulb is good and the correct one, if the fuse is good and the correct one, and if all of the tubes, bulb, fuse, fuse holder, tube sockets, other sockets, capacitors, resistors, outlet, jacks, transformers, switches, controls, and all of the amplifiers other components/parts are good and operational before the amplifier is supplied with a power cord/plug, powered-up, tested, used, worked on, modified, connected to any other equipment, handled, connected to a power source/supply, connected to any speakers, etc. Likewise, I have no idea whether everything is original or not in the above-listed amplifier and I therefore cannot make any warranties regarding originality. I also do not warrant that this amplifier is complete and I do not know if there are any missing or incorrect parts/components, etc. The item “RARE, BEAUTIFUL, & UNUSUAL VINTAGE RHEEM STEREO TUBE AMP AMPLIFIER (UNIQUE!)” is in sale since Sunday, July 7, 2019.
