I doubt the Doc will endorse this as it's been well buggered about.

Should be fine just extra by-passes, he sounds as if he knows what he is doing. It is older than he says, it is early 90's.

Is it worth 1500 pounds, though?

If someone pays that then it is worth it, that was its price new in the early 90's. Rarity value I think. There was someone on one of the forums, I think Wigwam, saying he was looking for one.

I wouldn't pay £1500 for it even for history sake. The bling Statement amps were never my fav, did them for the far east market, I gave in for once. I much prefer the new simple black perspex amps both for sound and looks, but some people love the shiny looks of this stuff.

I had one of them back in the day (with a TES CD player). Roughly an A60 (with controls) wasn’t it, Doc?
