Holy balls, the Accuphase P-600 Stereo Power Amplifier is one B-I-G mother of an amplifier. It actually gets physically tiring moving these beasts around the workshop!
Anyway, I’m not complaining, I LOVE working on equipment like this, even if it is bloody heavy. The Accuphase P-600 was, as far as I recall, Accuphase’s best class A/B stereo power amplifier back around the early 80’s. There were class A amps which were probably more expensive, and the ridiculous M-100 monophonic power amps, but as far as stereo amps go, this was king of the hill.
The P-600 produces 300 watts per channel into 8 ohms, much more into lower impedances. It weighs 38.5kg and this one even has the optional persimmon wood side panels. It’s superbly well-built, impeccable, typical of Accuphase. The P-600 also has some useful features like cool digital power output meters, stepped attenuators and lots of protection.
This one came in for a voltage conversion. Her owner purchased her from Japan, a location where 100V mains is the norm. Naturally, he wanted her converted to 240V operation. He also wanted an Aussie mains plug added. I was happy to assist.
