Another vintage gem from my personal collection of hifi equipment that I have to let go. A time for another audiophile to listen to and cherish for a long time to come. It has served me well for quite a few years, but have way too much equipment. the specs are:
Model 340-B Available from 1963 -1964
Rated at 30 Watts per channel from (4) 7591 Tubes
Inputs: Phono, Aux, and Tape
17.5" x 14" x 6.25" and weighs 35 lbs
The 340-B came on the scene a little more than 15 months after the original 340(A)'s introduction.
It's easy to confuse the 340-B with its Slide-rule dial with later solid-state models. But the "B" featured many improvements, which apparently justified a $20 increase.
All 340-B's have solid-state power supplies, headphone outputs, input indicators, speaker switching, and the new Auto-Sensor stereo switching (6KE8) MPX section
10-tube, Amplifier section:
(4) 12AX7 - preamps
(Split-load phase inverters)
(4) 7591 outputs
5-tube, FM Tuner section:
(1) 6BS8/6BQ7 - FM RF amp
(1) 6U8 FM mixer
3-tube, FM MPX section:
Considering the age of this remarkable tube receiver, I have marked it as a 7/10, but if you look at the pictures, you will see I have been very conservative on the rating. The sound is warm and pleasing, as with all vintage tube gear, there is a bit of warm-up time. The receiver does come with the original operating manual. The unit was professionally serviced not to long ago and is in top shape.
Please feel free to ask as many questions as you would like to be totally satisfied before you buy.
The unit will be well packed, and double boxed for its safe arrival to its destination.
This unit is heavy and the tubes will be packed seperately so as not to damage them during transit.
Buyer to pay Paypal fees, Shipping and insurance. No low ballers please. No Returns or exchanges.
Thanks for looking, have a wonderful day.
