If you are fan of this receiver, I think you will be hard pressed to find a better one.
One of the better receivers of the late 70s ... $750.00, way back then.
75 watts per channel ... Incredible sounding unit, with great FM quality.
This units are well know for their rich Luxman sound.
Unit is 9/10 outside and 11/10 inside ... almost like new.
As you can see in the photos, side panels of the rosewood have a few small marks, and a couple very tiny marks on the face - they are hard to see unless you know they are there.
Back antenna is perfect, not broken or cracked.
Front dial for tuning is smooth as silk, however if you look at it from the top as it is turning, the gap between the back of the knob and the front face changes ever so slightly.
All other knobs and switches function perfectly and silently.
All functions work perfectly, all functions thoroughly tested.
AM and FM sound fantastic.
All meters work perfectly.
Why would you pay this much?
Unit is totally rebuilt.
ALL new audio grade electrolytic capacitors throughout. (Elna,Nichichon,Panasonic,Mundorf, Blackgate).
This includes the two Mundorf main filter caps, which are barely broken in.
All new tantalum capacitors.
All new transistors in the preamp/tone board.
All new lamps
Rebuilt power switch (old ones tend to arc and fail over time because of initial power surge)
Bias and DC offset set to factory specs
Deoxit on all pots and switches
New thermal paste on power transistors (old stuff dries out and loses efficiency)
This unit has another flawless 30 years of life left in it.
The internal components are of higher quality than the factory.
Unit sounds incredible.
This was a labour of love, hate to sell it, but need cash for another piece of gear.
You would be hard pressed to find a unit this clean, and have all the work done above for under $500.
There are many hours of labour in this unit, and they are difficult to work on.
Replacing the axial electrolytics in the meter board, is a time consuming job, due to very difficult access.
However, the LED meters are now super responsive and work like new.
Over $100.00 in parts alone.
