Ultra rare monoblocks appeared

Postby soundofvoid » Tue Feb 10, 2015 5:53 pm

Just spotted a pair of Victor ME-1000 monoblocks for sale in yahoo japan.
Keeping low for the moment but they usually explode in the last hours...
Here is the auction: http://page22.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/a ... l275155856
I can't seem to find a description anywhere but the usual audio heritage site:
http://audio-heritage.jp/VICTOR/amp/me-1000.html
83 kilos with a cast subframe having a weight of 33 kilos...all this to have a 1X250 Watt/8 Ohms monoblock...
Reminds me of the other ultra amp of the same era ...the Denon POA-S1...
This CAN'T be bad...

... saw them too :)

Indeed extremely rare. No idea how many Victor made, let alone sold, but that must be the second pair spotted on the Yahoo in almost ten years - TA-NR1s are galore compared to these.

A bit ugly (make that quite ugly), like the AX-900 integrated which shared the same engineering base, but amps-wise I'd take Victor anyday, anytime, anywhere over anything Denon !
