Tiger Zaurus amp
 
Are there anyone that are familiar with this old amplifier?

I have been offered two of these that has been used in an restaurant back in the late 70ies, complete with schematics.
But how good are they, are they worth anything today?

Mostly usful for chassis, power supplies & heatsinks (rail voltage might be higher than is useful -- you might be able to get a more useful voltage by connecting the trafos in series.), these were notoriously unreliable -- amazing that they still work.

Thanks,

Yes i heard that they were sensitive and was easy to break.
So they are crap, luckilly i took two ackuset T300 instead. amazing dynamics in those old amps , and they shoud be impossible to break they say.

Grab those amps if you can. Great heatsinks and power supplies for a high powered amp. They failed because they were run at too high of a voltage and current for the early transistors but you can replace them with modern ones and get a very nice amp out of it. Audio Ametuer magazine had an article on rebuilding these things many years ago, it might still be available in reprint.
