I have had these two Magnavox 138 mono-block amps for years. The output of each amp is 10 watts and the output impedance is 4 ohms. A few years ago, I refurbished the amps andpainted the chassis. The amps are deadquiet and sound great. A preamp ishighly recommended for volume and tone control. However, I did play the amps with just a phone and without a preamp andthe volume level was slightly lower. There are some scratches in the paint.Heres what I did when I refurbished the amp. I replaced the... coupling caps with Mallory andSprague capacitors. I replaced out oftolerance resistors. I added a groundedpower cord, a 2 amp slo blo fuse, an onoff switch, an onoff lamp, three-wayspeaker connections for either bare wire, spade ends or banana plugs and rubberfeet. The filter can capacitor is stilloriginal to the amp and is still dead quiet as mentioned.The chassis are slightly different model 138 amps. But both amps use the same tubeconfiguration, one 5Y3GT, two 6V6GT power tubes and a 12AX7 preamp tube. One amp has a Hytron 5Y3GT, two RCA smokedblack plate tubes and an Audio Research 12AX7. The other has a GE 5Y3GT, one RCA smoked black plate and one Sylvania smoked6V6GT power tubes and an RCA 12AX7. Allfrom the golden age of tubes from the mid-century era. All were made in the US except maybe theAudio Research 12AX7ECC83.Free shipping in the lower 48 states.

Here offered is an original new old stock set of brown "top hat" knobs as used originally on Marantz Models' 5, 6 7 lever switches. (Black colored ones are a 'no-no', such being correct for use on rack-mount panels of anodized silver only. "Champagne Gold" panes require dark brown ones - Saul says)NOTE: the postage I quote is for the 1st Class Package rate which includes tracking. It is the best and safest I can do for a low price.Thanks for looking and don't hesitate to ask any questions. I lik...e talking about Marantz and the early days.

I replaced the 5Y3 rectifierwith two US-made coke-bottle shaped 5V4 rectifiers. I used four coke-bottle shaped, 6V6G tube. All tested good. And there are two 6AN8 tubes that were NOSwhen I installed them in the front of these amps. All these tubes from the golden age of tubesfrom the mid-century era.

Here is a really neat Knight vacuum tube power amplifier. It is a single channel mono amplifier that I suspect is of '50's vintage. The circuit design is simple and straightforward but is somewhat unique in that it uses twin parallel 5Y3 rectifier tubes and a quad of pushpull 6V6 output tubes. It is complete with the full complement of vintage vacuum tubes as shown. I also have the technical documentation that shows the tube layout, schematic diagram, and the component parts list.I picked this u...p several years ago and thought that it would be the perfect platform for a home rolled tube guitar amp. I did some preliminary testing by connecting a speaker load and slowly powering up with a variac. The amplifier was unstable and drove the speaker with a 120 Hz tone. Certainly, new capacitors are needed before exploring further. The tubes themselves have not been tested, but the transformers are all suspected to be good desirable vintage iron. This project got pushed to the back of the bench as other things have taken priority, and today I am simply looking to clean out the shop some. Given the nature of this item it is being made available only as non working as-is with no returns.I you have an interest in old tube stuff, and are looking for a straightforward little amp project then this could be just the ticket. I am also listing a VOX Tonelab that would make an excellent front end to this amp for you guitar guys out there...Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
