For Sale a very rare, KLH Model Twenty Seven Receiver, circa 1968.
This is one of the coolest pieces of Audio Gear I've ever come across, and a real piece of audio history. Designed by Henry Kloss (of Acoustic Research, KLH, and Advent fame), this piece harkens back to the styling of the KLH 8 tabletop tube radios and amps whose styling current manufacturers like Tivoli have brought back. It was reportedly used by Kloss in voicing the original Advent speakers and sounds fantastic with My KLH model 6 speakers. They are pretty rare to find in working condition and highly collectible, with working units often going for very high prices on Ebay. If you are a fan of KLH, Acoustic Research, or Advent or appreciate vintage audio or design, this is a nice piece to have. I actually have another model 27, so am willing to sell this one.
it is rated at 30 watts a channel, with adjustable gain switches for both the phono preamp and the AUX inputs. Has been cleaned inside and out, and all outputs have been tested, and all inputs save the tape monitor inputs have been checked out as well (don't have a tape deck to check that with). The only "issue" that I can see is that the knobs on the tuning dials are slightly loose, though reception is good.
I'm selling a number of vintage speakers, amplifiers and receivers, trying to clear a little space, if you're interested in the KLH, you may be interested in those as well. See the "other ads by this user" link
willing to listen to trades for other audio gear, in particular a nice turntable or turntable gear such as cartridges or step up transformers, though I'm primarily trying to clear space and pay bills.
