Vintage Scott 299 Tube Amplifier for sale. Two tubes are loose, but included with the lot.
As for the specific version of Scott 299's, it's a bit of a mystery. The face of the unit matches with the original 299(A), but the layout and configuration "inside" the unit matches closer with the 299(B) and 299(C). Maybe this is a Frankenstein unit, constructed from parts sourced from multiple Scott amps. Can't say for sure and the owner did not recall.
Own a piece of history and with a little fixing up, you can enjoy the warm, rich beauty that only tube amps can offer.
This unit is untested.
One McIntosh C28 Solid State Preamp up for grabs.
The unit shows signs of use, and is a little dusty, but it was tested and found to be working properly.
Critics and audiophiles the world round rave about the sound quality that McIntosh gear offers. Prior to testing the gear, many asked if the gear is really worth the high cost they carry, and after testing the answer was always the same: Absolutely.

Manufactured from 1976 to around 1978 and with an MSRP of nearly $800 the KR-9600 was Kenwood’s flagship receiver. It puts out a massive 160 watts per channel into 8 ohms with only 0.08% total harmonic distortion.
It also features dual power supplies, a FET differential amplifier phono input and state of the art tuner design. In fact, the KR-9600 is popular among audio enthusiasts who modify it to bring it up to modern specs and turn it into a fantastic tuner even by today’s standards. It actually has two separate phone EQ’s to accommodate different cartridges. They are switchable from the front controls.
It has two step loudness control, 3 speaker system capability, ASO (Area of Safe Operation) protection circuit, dual power meters and triple tone controls. Another interesting feature is the Sound Injection Circuit. this circuit allow you to plug a microphone into the mic jack while playing from music from another source. So, you can sing along with the music or record yourself over it.
That's right, this receiver has a "karaoke mode" built in!
It says something about a piece of audio gear when it has a pair of SERIOUS handles on it. Like, "You're going to want to hold on tight for this..."
GE stereo console in wood cabinet, includes am/fm tuner and record player with two speakers built-in.
Unit turned on and turntable turned, did not test with any records.
Dynaco brand Dynatuner FM-3 radio tuner.
The FM-3 tuner was actually an update of Dynaco's FM-1 tuner. The FM-1 was introduced in 1961 as a monophonic tuner. It was based on a design by Stewart Hegeman, and Ed Laurent (the "father" of so many of Dynaco's "classic" tube components) made the design a reality. It featured a brass face plate and brown plastic knobs, very similar in styling to the PAS-2 preamplifier. In kit form, the FM-1 sold for just $79.95! (That's $560.05 in today's Dollars.)
Unit is untested.
One pair of Wharfedale W70 3-way speakers, tested and they sound fantastic.
Two-tone walnut cabinets, grill fabric does show some staining/possible water damage.
Tested and again, they sound great. They may not win any beauty contests, but that's not why you buy speakers, is it?
Pair of JBL floor speakers. When I tested them, I didn't get anything out of them. With the insulation and cones in the state they are, I expected distortion, but I got nothing. When I asked the owner about them, he insisted they worked and sounded surprisingly good, given the chewed up insulation around the woofers.
Good for a project, not so good for a plug and play.

Pair of Zenith mid-range CV 400 speakers.
Bring the boom-boom around town & country with you with this Becker speaker box featuring a trio of hefty 8" woofers and a couple tweeters on the top of the box for good measure.
Two turntables, neither of which work in their current state.
Hooked both of the record players up and I could not get the platter to start up.
Technics SL-23 Belt-Drive Semi-Automatic Turntable
-Worth noting, the base of the turntable, which was originally silver, has yellowed with age, despite the unit having a cover.
Bic 920 Belt-Drive Turntable
-This unit has an acrylic shell on the bottom, so you can see all the mechanical pieces at work...at least when the unit is functioning correctly. Maybe it'll make it easier to diagnose the issue preventing it from working in its current state?
This is a curious piece of technology. Rather than having a lid that opens to load/unload records, this unit features a front-loading automated tray that opens to allow you to load/unload your records. It also has the ability to recognize and play individual tracks. It's a pretty fascinating piece of technology.
All buttons appear to work, but they do seem to have a sluggish response, sometimes the better part of a second.
Also, the extending tray takes a WHILE to load and unload. See included video to get an idea of exactly how long it takes to retrieve a record. The feature also enables its storage in a console without the concern for sufficient headroom for a lid opening.
Finally, a fun fact: The Zenith CV660 its a rebranded JVC Made in Japan. The JVC model number would be (JVC L-E50B).
