Mitsubishi

Just seen an add in the local paper. Mitsubishi stereo amp, turntable, tuner, and cassette deck - $30.00.

My wife called and we're going to pick it up tomorrow. I will get in here as soon as I get her home. This could be a big let down, however it could be very eventful!! And yes.... I'll post some pictures.

Ron

Hi, Ron. I picked up a similar array, amp DA-U155, matching tuner and EQ for ten bux. The volume on the amp doesn't work, but the kind fellas here have given me some input in how to get it to provide some output. It's high on my projects list, because it looks good and has ample power. I'll be interested in hearing your comments on the gear.

Hopefully the amp is a DA-A10 or 15 and the pre is a DA-P.....

I too picked up a Mitsubishi setup like you described, sans turntable. I got it for $25. It had the DA-u155 integrated amp like drbongo. The amp is simple in layout and would be easy to work on. The volume control fader was bad on mine also and a flushing with 92% isopropyl alcohol followed with deoxit and faderlube seems to have taken care of the issue. It is not the greatest sounding amp I have but for the money was worth it. It will be a good amp to gift someone with if I could ever find anyone that still wants 2 channel. Good luck with your find.

Thanks guys! I picked it up today, and I'm a little let down, (you know I was hoping for that big score). I probably shouldn't have bought it, but it belonged to an elderly gentleman, and I didn't have the heart to say it was junk, so we payed him and loaded it into the trunk. I'll gift it to someone for their garage or something. Here's the list:

DA-U106 Integrated
DP-37B TT
DT-77 Cassette
DA-F76 Tuna
DA-G156L EQ

I'll hook it up before too much longer, and give it a listening to.

Ron

Looking at your list of amps/receivers, I can see why you weren't blown away by the Mitsu, Bubba. I'm glad I know what to not look forward to now.



Once I get around to cleaning out the innards, it will make a good gift to someone (the stuff looks basically new), esp. if I can find some decent speakers in my array that I want to clear out.

Did you get a chance to audition the tuner? Was it also medicre?
