Magnavox PP 6V6 Amp by Dennis Had of Cary Audio - PRICE REDUCTION

Will Ship To: USA

"MAGNAVOX STEREO VACUUM TUBE PUSH-PULL POWER AMPLIFIER rebuilt by Dennis J. Had, Founder of Cary Audio Design.  Once again I have rebuilt another of these magnificent Maggie tube amps.  It never ceases to amaze me how wonderful these console amps of the 60's sound.  Over the last couple of years I have been collecting and rebuilding vintage Hi-Fi gear.  It is like a hobby within a hobby.  The Magnavox amplifiers have such merit that I completely strip down to the bare chassis, paint and re-manufacture using new parts and on the push-pull units I use 6922 (7308) input tubes as a split load phase inverter driving the new Tung-Sol 6V6's in class "A" auto, cathode bias.  I do retain the sweet Magnavox sound utilizing the original Stancore push-pull output transformers.  I have been designing amplifiers and Hi Fi gear for over 45 years and still love every new amp, phono head amp and preamplifier that I build.  Just simply great fun.  Oh, I might mention that the new owner of this Maggie will receive brand new Tung-Sol output tubes and new 6922 input tubes as well as a NOS 5U4 rectifier tube.  Couple  this with all Teflon EE silver stranded wire and Kimber coupling Kaps, gold plated RCA jacks, speaker post and new Electrolytics you have a life-time music machine.  Just add a preamp, CD Player and turntable and you will be in Hi Fi heaven with this classic Magnavox vacuum tube amplifier.

 

Thank you for looking at my newly built Maggie and have a great day .........

Bought this on ebay from Mr. Had a while back.  Great sounding speaker amp!  Amp is a vintage beauty!  I was going to add a headphone out and speaker/headphone switch but other projects are taking up my time and funds.  This would make a really great headphone amp that would drive just about any set of cans.  I presently own the EL84 tube version of this amp with HP output and speaker/HP switch built by JWN Amps (Jim Nichols), and it truly is the best pairing I have heard with my HD800s. Mr. Had's Maggie has been sitting idle on my shelf for a while now, and it should be enjoyed by someone who can add the HP output or just use it as intended as a speaker amp utilizing efficient speakers.  Mr. Had has been selling rebuilt Magnavox amps on ebay for a while and usually the Buy It Now price is $1000 and up.  This amp is autographed by Mr. Had on bottom Plexiglass plate.  I would consider a trade for HD700.  I will include an additional fresh quad of RCA 6V6 tubes in the sale.

 

Shipping and PP fees included in asking price. 

Thanks for looking.
