LEGENDARY QUALITY AND RELIABILITY.
Revox B 150 B-150
SOUNDS TRIPLE AMAZING, MEATY, STEADY, SMOOTH, NEUTRAL, FAST, TRANSPARENT, IN TOTAL CONTROL OF THE MUSIC.
COMPLETELY SERVICED/ADJUSTED BEFORE SALE AND WORKS LIKE NEW.
TRULY EXCELLENT CONDITION, EXCELLENT WORKING ORDER.
NO REMOTE INCLUDED; ALL FUNCTIONS TESTED AND WORK.
Made in Western Germany in 1988.
Conservatively rated at 90 Watts per channel RMS into 8 Ohms and at 170 Watts per channel RMS into 4 Ohms with below 0.01% THD. Those Watts, cannot be compared to today's Sony or Pioneer watts. Revox rated things just as safely as did Marantz in its silver era.
B150 will have no trouble going as low as 2 Ohms for short periods of time, and will drive just about any speaker to very loud levels.
Ultra fast amplifier.
Damping factor = 260
HIGHEST QUALITY PARTS:
Military grade circuit boards.
WIMA capacitors throughout (as used in Musical Fidelity, Hovland, etc, etc,) for smaller values and Frako (best German made) electrolytics for power filter caps: 4 x 15,000 x 63V = 60000 mF total capacitance.
Specially designed linear force toroidal power supply instantly provides energy to keep up with high load transient peaks. Fancy heavy duty heatsinks provide for fast heat dissipation. 16 discrete output transistors (lined up on the heatsinks)were custom selected by Revox for this application. Gold plated connectors. Nice speaker hookups with rarely seen screw-in solid metal posts - those, never break and allow the use of 12 Gauge wire.
Preamplifier is electronically driven - every function is controlled by its own chip for extra reliability.
This is a Direct Coupled (DC) high current design.
This Revox is multi-voltage, currently set to 220V and comes with 500 Watts high quality US-made step up/step down 110/120/220/240 V universal transformer, that alone costs $150, for use in North America.
The original Revox power supply allows the use of 110/120/220/240 Volts - PS is multi mode with extra wires, so it can be rewired - soldering will be involved, and original Revox service manual is a must. The power cord is North American.
