It powered up the first time, and then would not power up again. Fuse is OKAY. Ideas ??

physically immaculate, no burn smell. GW again.:blink:

:applaud:I have been green for awhile now, regarding your "steals" at GW....perhaps you finally got some of my luck....$5 down for the great faceplate, $100 repair bill for the insides...:banghead: I really don't know what it could be, but Doug at Audio Specialties is the only guy to take it too....you already know him well, I am sure. This little amp is worth it, for sure. Never see em mint anymore. Good luck....but not too much...you are tempting me to drive 80 miles and beat you to the door at Goodwill every morning:bouncy:

I've got the advantage. Retired 4 years ago. No longer a "productive member of society". Can play with audio toys 24/7 if I want.

TODAY

Also got a nice Marantz receiver that works fine. some lights out. And a pair of Sansui 3 way , 10 inchers. Look pretty nice. And a snowboard, and a HP pocket PC and ........

There is GW and there is GW. Most of their retail store suck. This is salvage. There are stores in Vancouver, Beaverton and Milwaukee. They roll out the tables/carts and everyone lines up like during a free throw at a BB game. Then the fun begins. Grab like HELL. Can get very physical out there. Most of the store is priced by the pound, but audio or TV by the piece, normally $5 or $10. Treasures every now and then.

Come on down ...we'll do lunch.

I put the meter across the power switch and got 118vac with the switch ON and OFF positions, expected 0 in OFF position. Is this correct ?

Zero in the ON position....
