Nice YAMAHA amp to sell

I originally bought this unit on ebay for my son…I wanted to prepare and give him his first HiFi-Equipment. But I didn’t need to buy him a CD-player and speakers, because he signaled me clearly, that he’s very happy with his iPod and mp3…

(O.M.G.) 🙁

So, here for you, preferable someone within the European Union, a nice Yamaha AX-700, I think from somewhen end 80s/early 90s (?)As you can see on the images, is in a good shape for being this old. Only some light signs of usure on the front, top and sides.Here you can find all technical specifications you need

Important for the vinylists: it has a Phono-Input, switchable MM/MC…and also important for the upgrade: pre amp and main amp are separable.

The amp weights about 12 KG, so shipping cost is for Germany 12 EUR. For other countries, please ask or check it yourself on internet.

I don’t remember, how much I paid for the amp, one year ago…but I see/saw this amp on ebay all the time with prices between 140 and 200 EUR for similar conditions of the amp, so your price will be 120 EUR

This call will be visible until coming sunday…then I post the amp on ebay…or until the first of you has sent me a PM and paid via Paypal.

Good Luck!

Many thanks to the friend from South Europe, who bought this nice unit. Very appreciated the very fast payment…and the amp will be tomorrow (wednesday) on its way.

This recording with Sir Thomas Beecham and the magnificent Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was one of the most successful early stereo productions. While Beecham conducted all nine of the Beethoven symphonies, he did not record them all. However, the Second is the one with which he was most closely associated. He recorded it on three different occasions, each regarded as the outstanding version of its time.

As always, if anyone has requests for other titles in this set, please add them to the comments or PM me directly.
