Default Akai M-8 Tube Amplifiers

I have a set of M-8 amps that I am willing to sell to someone. Shoot me an pm if interested.

I replaced belt just to find out motor is faulty.

Amps work fine.

I think this would get more visibility in the tubes forum, but I would ask a moderator to transfer this there rather than double posting it.

The transformers in these are considered desirable...

I've moved this to Swap Meet.

Note that there are at least 2 recent threads on the M8.

I have 6 of these (a pair in a deck i plan on restoring). I'd be interesd in your new belt.

Paul (of Wild Burro fame) has a free chassis (cost of shipping) if you want to replace the motor. I was planning on sending him the cost of ship to Canada, but i'g be willing to pass if you want to restore yours.

I can't promise the motor in mine works, but I'll send her to any takers! I'm headed downstairs to keep stripping the amps,

I have two of these myself that need work.

I appreciate the offer for the other one, but, I have one too many as it is.

I do believe the answer for me is part with one and work on the other.

Thanks, Tom
