Further information:

 I purchased this power amplifier from Canberra Audio Engineer Bill Crampton of The Factory Audio Engineering several years ago.  Many of these amps had been used in cinemas and other professional settings and Bill would purchase and modify them for home use

 where they were popular due to their massive power and ability to drive any speaker with ease.  This particular unit was refurbished and modded for home stereo use and from memory has increased Class A bias and has single stereo inputs and outputs.  RCA to XLR cables for input and Neutrix Speakon plugs for outputs are included.  A new quiet ceramic fan was fitted but I have never noticed it kick in thanks to the substantial heat sinks on either side of the unit.  There is a barely audible 50Hz hum at zero volume if you put your head near a speaker but cannot be heard from my listening position.

 

Original specs for Perreaux 6200B are 270W into 8 ohms, 450W into 4 ohms and 650W into 2ohms and it weighs 25kg.

 

My original system was based on a high end AV Receiver which should have been very capable based on specs and advice but left me underwhelmed, it was a bit like driving a Prius, it would get you there but uninspiring.  Adding the Perreaux amp reminds me of an 80's muscle car, loads of power, dynamics, simple, built like a tank and fun.  More recently I tried a five channel Anthem MCA50 which has 225W at 8 ohms, whilst very neutral it would lose composure at high volume whereas the Perreaux has so much headroom it just gets louder with the same control and dynamics.  I used it in a 2 channel system recently while waiting on new gear with a Bryston Pre and loved it.  My family all noticed the difference and came back to listening to music on our main system.

 

If you are are looking to see what your system can do with added power and control, this amp is an inexpensive way of finding out.   A box is available for shipping at buyers expense if required.

Battle-scarred brute of a thing with a heart of gold, and a raised pinky when it drinks its tea from fine china. Wouldn't be surprised if it has a tattoo saying "Mum".

I imagine that it will grab your speakers by their suspenders and tell them just who the boss is.

Had the pleasure of running a PA for a well known Australian pub. They had a bank of these to drive the PA. 
 

They have serious grunt. Exceptional dynamics. A never say die sort of amp.

 

Would drive any speaker without breaking a sweat.

Thanks JukKluk2 and westsurf, its difficult to describe these amps and do them justice particularly this one with this much "patina".

A tough, powerful amp with enough finesse to make most people happy.

This amp would make many “audiophile” amps look like the poor cousin.

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Brisbane State: QLD Payment Method: Money Reason for selling: Thinning the collection. Further information:
       
      On offer is  Aiwa AD-F990 cassette decks. Comes one T200 remote. These were optional extras but come as part of the sale. 
       
      The decks themselves function very well and are a technical tour-de-force featuring the following functions:
       
      Amorphous Tape Heads and dual capstans Automatic Tape Calibration Automatic Tape Type Selection Automatic Record Level Setting Built in demagnetizer Real time and Linear tape timer Dolby B and C Dolby HX Pro Automatic NR Detection (Deck automatically detects and switches to the type of NR used on the tape ) Large format Fluorescent Display Full Logic Transport Controls and more.  
      Here’s a good place that gives a run down on these wonderful sounding machines : 
       https://www.cassettedeck.org/aiwa/ad-f990

      Was part of a collection and very gently used. Deck have been previously serviced and all belts have been replaced. All functions work when tested. The silver top has some dings on the cover. This is purely cosmetic. The deck has a full bodied sound and presentation that delivers energy when the music calls for it. Top of the line  sounding machine with a wonderful sound and plenty of convenience features.
       
      The Black version has been sold. Only the Silver one is available.
