HTHArjay_________________"Here's why reliability is job one: A great sounding amp that breaks down goes from being a favorite piece of gear to a useless piece of crap in less time than it takes to read this sentence." -- BRUCE ZINKYLooks like the amp is in serious need of a new master-volume knob. Try wheeling and dealing with the seller before you buy -- anything beyond 0 for this one is a bit *optimistic*, methinks.

Arjay_________________"Here's why reliability is job one: A great sounding amp that breaks down goes from being a favorite piece of gear to a useless piece of crap in less time than it takes to read this sentence." -- BRUCE ZINKYI don't know Arjay's feeling on this,but there seems to be quite a bit of rust on the transformer that can be seen in the picture, I've never liked to see that and know that rust can never be a good thing,you might want to look at some of the exposed parts of the underside of that chassis and see if there's corrosion elsewhere.
