^ Holy moly that's nice! No WAF though :tongue:

That's insane! I don't think I've ever seen a console with McIntosh components before.

OK, maybe in the basement instead of the living room...

Then I'd put a mirror on the inside of the top so I could see the meters from my listening chair!

Yeah, that's what my thought was. I couldn't find any in my check when I opened it up, but I didn't really look that closely. I did notice, however, that a coil of wire behind my tuner hardware looks like it was burnt at one point (the lower of the two coils seen in the photo below). Just behind a metal piece to the right of it is another, smaller pair of coils with a similar burn, oxidation, or wear point on the lower coil of the two. What could this mean?

@ssrock64 - I see the oxidizing on the coil, not really a big deal. You can just clean it off. However, it appears a resistor has gone bad, and possibly took some of the capacitor with it when it sparked off. I would get that replaced if I'm seeing it correctly in the picture. :)

It was also the entry level but has the same fine phono section as the SA-9800.

The market was not as competitive then so they could afford to make fewer models and spec them very well.

The guts are very impressive considering she's a 20 watter...

 

 

 

 

My SA-5800 photo as promised...

Very nice! Are those new caps and transformer?

No. Its only been opened twice...by me. Once to clean/dust and once for pictures.

Excellent job on cleaning then!

I'll have that confirmed when I take it in for a general once-over at the nearest local shop tomorrow. I'm not very good at spotting faults, but I'll have him take a look at the resistor and search for loose solder joints as well. What could that resistor do to the unit if I keep using it broken? Could it be responsible for the right-channel vu-meter spike I saw last week?

Heads up - if you're looking for a Sansui G22000, there's one up in Columbus

I'm not sure what the function is of that resistor in the circuit so I have no idea what it's for. However, if you leave it unrepaired, it will continue to knock its neighbors out of whack and eventually fail, possibly taking something out with it.

Marantz 6100/6300/6350 real nice and beautiful TTs.

I do love that amp of yours! Sitting there dressed in its oak finery. 

 

 

Heres my European equivalent, exactly the same but no wood... Naked.. Thats why its hiding in the stand ha
