« on: November 28, 2016, 07:21:09 AM »
FD?....I picked up this compact beauty(half chassis width)from Doctor John who did a refurbish on her.I have never seen one before.Dates from the late sixties and sounds very sweet indeed.32wpc and separate  gain controls in front.Supposedly it was one of the first solidstate power amps made.Anybody know this one?

Kent, I don't know it but it certainly looks like something with which I could very easily become acquainted! Keep me in mind please should you decide it needs a loving home ;)

Running a stunningly made Siltech Sphinx Project 2 preamp and a Counterpoint da10e Dac with her into a pair of Ruarks at the moment......an unusual set of bits....

Lovely looking too, considering it was circa late 60's or 70's

It does look great....some surface pitting had started on the cream bits and I almost sinned and made her satin black!....thankfully a trip to the Hobby train shop here in Plumstead meant I could find a very close matching Tamiya paint which came out superbly....I saved the little voltage and Sansui stickers on the side as well.
