    Default FS: Ferrograph F307 MKII integrated vintage amp.

    Another item selling on behalf of Grant (struth).

    Asking 165 ono (all monies go to Grant).

    Grant kindly lent me this amp (as well as some FR speakers) as I was intrigued about the sound. Aim was to sell them down here in the SE as better chance of selling.

    This little amp looks and sounds very sweet. At the time of its build (1973) it was ahead of its time (according to what I have read). Have been using it for a while on the Rola 12" FR speakers that Grant also lent and they make for a beautiful engaging tone with tons of detail and surprisingly amount of bass grip. The woodwork has been restored (by Grant) and together with the clean fascia is a very attractive item - very vintage looking.

    Has 2 line level inputs and two phono inputs (magnetic and ceramic together with tape loops (in/out). Circuitry is unmolested. Speaker outputs are DIN type (included are converters - obviously need to isolate them when using).

    What more can I say - a nice looking and sounding amp.

    Here is an extract from the 2014 yearbook published by HiFi news.

    Demo/pick up in London N2 - or arrange a courier (I have a suitable double walled box).

    Lots of (clickable) pictures at this link and a few below.

    I was joking, is it really??

    While I'm on here, I should point out a friend of mine has two of these, he liked the first one so much he bought a second. He frequently uses it over several very good valve amps...
