Linsley Hood amp on Taobao

Posted 4th June 2014 at 05:27 AM by abraxalito

Looks like a bargain, around $120. Sorely tempted to get one to play with - what do you think ?

    Wow, looks great.
    Transformer, enclosure, binding posts, etc are easily worth that much... if it doesn磘 sound good after your mods, just put a chipamp in!

    The guy is selling the chassis alone for about 200rmb (that's $33). Here's the link if you'd like more pics to drool over - 人声之王 Hood 1969金封甲类功放整机 最完美版本HD1969-淘宝网

    Just tried it again here, works for me. I don't hold out much hope for diagnosing what's up your end, software being what it is....

    You could try going to 淘宝海外全球站首页 and type 'hood 1969' into the search box.

    Got it, thanks! Gotta love the Krell logo on the front, :), but looks nicely made ...

    Yeah the Krell tickled me too - can't remember Krell ever doing an amp in 'slow gold' (as some audio distributors called this colour because it didn't shift off the shelves)

    taobao is just bloody brilliant. just wish i could read chinese..... google translate is better than nothing but lack of language really kills the fun of rummaging around looking for a few gems...
    nice find tho!

    I saw the same amp on ebay with English description:
    2014 Perfect Hood 1969 Gold Seal Pure Class A Finished Amplifier 10W 110V 220V | eBay
    Even if some of the parts and assembly weren't up to scratch and needed fixing it would be a great quick way to get a very tidy JLH1969 setup.
    I just made mine so I don't need another though. This would have saved me the fun and challenge of DIYing the heatsink and chassis :-)
