    Default Heathkit Williamson 4's

    Push-pull 6L6/5881, good for about 22-25w/side. Pair of 6SN7 on the front end, 5V4GA (5AR4 installed) rectifiers.

    I had them completely re-capped and Tiffany gold RCA input jacks installed. Stock barrier strip and power cord kept in place to maintain the original 'look' of these classics.

    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    World class. Too bad I can't keep them all.

    Just gorgeous, Russ.... these went out in the CJ amp deal?

    What are the two taps toward the right edge that look like headphone jacks? Straining these old eyes to see what's printed between 'em ("Balance"?), but not quite there...

    EDIT: For any interested in a little more info...

    No, the Williamson 5's went out in the CJ deal.

    The two taps are for balance adjustment, two per amp (two power tubes per amp), with the Bias in between.

    Oh, there's MUCH more that never makes a post here.

    I'm just trying (on occassion) to inject ACTUAL hifi into the 'par 4 the course' mediocraty that prevails here.

    Seriously, I'm having a pair of W3 Integrated mono's FULLY modded, and stripped completely of the front end (vol, tone, source controls), and made into straight mono amps that I will keep for myself. Basically, totally rebuilt, short of the Iron.

    "On occassion" has become the norm with you recently, be it vintage or current models... Melos, CJ, the Dodd contact, the Heathkit W's, Marantz 8, et al...

    You've moved into a completely different audio area code.
