    You have to de-solder some wires, it's a PITA.

    I figured I at least have to desolder the copper pipe, but my solder iron was't hot enough--anyway I did resolder a couple concerns on top, but I have a couple other issues that need to be fixed, including a toastly looking resistor, so I'll have to get that board out somehow--Anyway enough with my derail--I'm posting all about that in another thread (as soon as I get some time to do it) :o

    Cool thread, keep the pics coming!
    I had to take the top off this yard sale find today and look for a blown fuse.I accidently touched the speaker wires together...DUH..
    I found a blown one and replaced it but took these photos to see if any veterans can tell what brand it is.:D I'll chime in later. By the way, this amp REALLY sounds fantastic.

    Here's the same amp with more pics. I'm glad I found this thread because it shows it's a common ground unit. I'll hook up my sda-crs's tomorrow.:)

    Such a hollow inside and it supposed to be powerful. Well it did continue to play music for about 30-45 seconds AFTER I turned the amp off.
    I thought it had a bad switch..

    No problem with yours playing after turnoff. They don't have any speaker protection relays, so it plays until the caps deplete. I knew it was an A250 as soon as I saw your pix above. Acurus just uses a simpler is better approach.

    When I saw you had taken pictures of yours, I knew at least you would recognize the empty space and 2 huge caps in the back. I timed it today and it took about 40 seconds to bleed down.:D

    I'm going to hang on to this and play with different set-ups over the next few years.;)

    It does the sda-crs's justice too. It reminds me of my Sunfire amps sound.

    Found this little guy at the dump a few weeks ago -- on the scrap metal pile! :-o
    Haven't yet had the chutzpah to put it on a variac yet. Tubes are all original (EICO brand Mullards, Amperex 5AR4 and US 7591s) except one 7591. (EDIT: I guess the 5AR4 might also be a replacement, come to think of it)



    I may have mentioned that I love the dump; it's a magical place!

    Kenwood KA-7100 (also a dump find, but several years back), recently donated to a friend at AK.






    It doesn't look like I posted these here before; my apologies if I did.

    The PC police

    The PC police
    They're coming to arrest me
    Oh no

    You know that talk is cheap
    And rumors ain't nice
    And when I fall asleep
    I don't think I'll survive

    The night the night

    'Cause they're waiting for me
    Looking for me
    Every single night
    (They're) driving me insane
    Those men inside my brain

    The PC police
    They live inside of my head

    Well I don't tell lies
    'Cause they're listening to me

    Bet they're spying on me tonight,
    Tonight

    'Cause they're waiting for me
    Looking for me
    Every single night
    (They're) driving me insane
    Those men inside my brain

    I try to sleep
    They're wide awake
    They won't let me alone
    They don't get paid to take vacations
    Or let me alone
    They spy on me
    I try to hide
    They won't let me alone
    They persecute me
    They're the judge and jury all in one

    'Cause they're waiting for me
    Looking for me
    Every single night
    (They're) driving me insane
    Those men inside my brain

    The PC police
    They live inside of my head
    The PC police they come
    to me in my bed

    The PC police
    They're coming to arrest me

    The PC police (police, police)

    Great song by the way...........anyone know who this is?

Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

    You know I'm no prude but everytime I saw that title I always thought it quite crude and it always gave me tingling mind visual!!! I guess I'm becoming more gentil in my old age! UGH!

    Default Moscode 600

    Hello,
    Here is a classic Moscode 600 hybrid tube solid state amplifier that I worked on. I replaced the coupling caps and critical audio path resistors, installed some new binding posts and RCA inputs. I replaced the power cord with an IEC type socket, re-tubed and set all the bias and DC offset and high voltage adjustments. I also painted the AC transformer and cleaned up all the chassis and circuitry.
    Sounds great!
    Enjoy, Ken
