This Blue Circle BC26 MKII. Last year it went back to Gilbert for a complete updating. The output amplifiers were replaced with the current amplifier modules destine BC 200 series. The original BC26 did not use a driver board. This one now the solid state driver board currently being offered as an upgrade to Blue Circle hybrid amps. With this upgrade the power supply capacitance was also increased by 100%.
This one is now designated a BC26NST-M2, it’s a fully balanced amp delivering 200WPC 8 ohm, 400WPC 4 ohm, 800WPC 2 ohm.
Original price on the BC26 was $5500. Retail on the upgrades done would be $1800. If offered today this amp would be over $8000.
Still roughly 2 years left on the warranty on the upgrade. This covers all the replaced parts. About the only thing not replaced was the power transformer, and half the power supply capacitance.
Local pickup preferred. Shipping weight is about 130 pounds.
At the asking price.. will add a BC62 10 gauge power cord and a Power pillow filter and will cover shipping in US. Shipping to Canada can be reasonable done, but may take up to month to get to get it back to Blue Circle and ship from there.
All reasonable offers considered. No trades at this time.
Update from Gilbert, new owner will get a full 3 year Warranty. Can be transported across the border for Canadian shipping in the next two weeks. No later than 8/15.
Original box, owners manual, BC62 power cord and power pillow filter.
