Bought this lil amp today for $15. Sparkomatic AMP 6000.
It is 60 watts of old skool power.:laugh:
Found it sitting on a shelf in a local store called Absolute Electronics.
The store was packed with vintage Tube TV's and old electronics.
The seller tested it and cleaned it for me when I was there.
Sounded really nice !
It is the smallest amp I have ever seen !
It measure 4 inches long and 3.5 inches wide.
I think it is from either 1984 or 1985

heres some pics of what it looks like

For old school amps I really like the Harman Kardons, I have the 40 watter its a CA240 sitting in a closet, just a beautiful heavy design. I swear it has more power than modern 100 watt amps. Anyway am I the only H/K amp-o-phile or are there others out there?
