SOLD - Musical Fidelity A1000 Class A Super Pre-Main Amplifier - £1000 JS Audio upgrade
This Musical Fidelity A1000 Class A Super Pre-Main amplifier is in immaculate condition and working perfectly. In 2010 it was sent to Musical Fidelity specialist, JS Audio, for upgrades that I'm informed by the previous owner who undertook the work, cost £1000. These included...
Replace all capacitors
Replace all transistors
Replace all cables
Fit WBT Nextgen speaker connectors
Chord Odysses fitted
Audio grade transformer installed
Silver plated Newtrik connectors fitted.
This is just a small list of the main work undertaken
I have played this amp extensively (and seriously considered keeping!) and it sounds superb and everything works exactly as you would expect. The huge control knobs on the front are absolutely gorgeous to use and have the highest quality feel and action of any switches you are likely to find. It's a tactile delight. It's also huge... the main unit is significantly wider and taller than a 'standard' full width hifi component.
If you are unfamiliar with this model, it is not a pre and power amplifier, but instead an high end integrated amplifier with separate (and very heavy) power supply.
The condition of both components is superb and any blemishes you might be able to make out on the pictures are finger prints... the front is very high gloss black and pics up everything!
If you are looking for a top end amplifier with well respected upgrades (just search JS Audio Repairs) then here it is.
I have the original box and internal packaging, but my intension is to double box it for added security. Of course, you are also welcome to collect. I will only be sending this within the UK.
