I have a lovely Lenco A-50 integrated amplifier for sale, for just $395. UPDATE – SOLD!
Lenco was a Swiss audio company, highly rated back in the day. The A-50 is an integrated amplifier, so you can just plug in your sources and play them directly through speakers. The pre and power sections are separately accessible, meaning you can upgrade your system without having to get rid of your Lenco A-50 – a nice touch!
The Lenco A-50 also has a high quality discrete transistor built-in phono preamp. This is great because it means you can directly connect a turntable, without needing to buy a separate phono preamp as you do with many modern amps. You’ll get better sound from the built in phono pre too.
The amplifier is in excellent condition. It sounds great and is beautifully built, heavy for a 40 watt per channel amplifier. Even better, it’s got gorgeous illuminated meters, a classic feature on good audio gear from this period. They certainly don’t build them like this anymore.
The only blemish is a non-functional headphone socket. You could easily attach a dedicated headphone amp though, and this would be a better solution.
As usual, I’ve carefully cleaned and serviced this amplifier so her new owner doesn’t have to. Just plug her in and enjoy the music.
I’m asking just $395 ono for this classic vintage amp. Contact me at 0439 690 436, or use the contact form.
