B&O Beomaster 2200 40W power amp modules

I recently remembered I had pulled the two power amp modules from a B&O Beomaster 2200 which was mainly all smashed up years ago.

They run on +/- 30V and are rated 40WPC.

I suppose the caps will need changing. They have been serviced at some point I think because some of the BJTs are not original. Otherwise do you think it's worth building a supply for these ?

Are they likely to sound any good ?

Cheers

If it's worth it, depends on if you need an extra amp, and if you already have the parts available. If you have to buy all necessary parts new, then I would not bother.
You can buy a used "fully functioning" Beomaster 2200 for between 50 and 75 Euro. If you have to buy transformer+bridge+caps+case for this project, it will cost much more.

So it's a matter of what you need/want. Maybe save the heatsinks and built a good chip-amp instead. If you like building amps. Otherwise buy a used amp.
