The seller's description is misleading...

The P90 upgrade (stepped attenuator and internal wiring) is £400. The standard pots could be rewired (assuming the pots are not faulty).

There is no detail about the power amp fault - one channel? both channels?

3 hours to go - still 51 pounds as highest bid.

Cheap components for the NVA DIY brigade?

From the descriptiion i wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. Cases will probably be usable. Power amp psu's might be ok but who knows. A very large gamble i would say.

If both A60 amplifier boards are blown, there would be a minimum repair charge of £300. If transformers and capacitors also require replacement, that would be a minimum of an additional £250. Excluding postage.

Still cheaper than new. Depends how much someone wants them and how much they are prepared to spend to get the amplifier of their dreams. About £600 is around half price!

Even if they are both totally knackered, £50 to £60 for a couple of future DIY cases is not too bad and from that start point everything else is upside

Have to own up and say I bought it. My max bid was a punt at £100 as it included the P90 pre amp which sounds like an easy fix or potential upgrade to mk3 ( albeit an aluminium case). Even if A60 boards are gone as noted above I can still use the case and high quality transformer ( IPL vintage aka Canterbury Windings ) to maybe upgrade my similar vintage A70’s to A80’s only having to buy extra caps plus one more transformer. But let’s see what was turns up in the box !!!
