Product Description

This Collins 12Z - 2   Vintage Audio Amplifier / Mixer / Remote Amplifier, (Second Version) is in Very Nice, Working Condition.

 The leather cover for the metal handle is even intact and in good shape although it only covers the metal handle so it will not break due to age.

 This Particular unit was used by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and still has WHO-CBC on the front protective cover, in dark Letters.

 This model appears to be a later model (12Z-2) than the initial version 12Z, which came out in 1939. The date for manufacturing this version appears to be mid to late 1940s.

The batteries and associated components have been removed as it was probably only used on 117 Volts AC.

This unit is clean inside and out. It has some marks on the case and on the bezel, which have been touched up with a sharpie.

 The front panel is very nice with no bad marks.

 I tested this amplifier and each channel works as they should, and the large meter seems to working great.

 The audio through this unit is absolutely excellent which is indicative of a tube type pre amp.

I am selling this beautiful remote amplifier as is as described. You do not see many of them and when you do, they are in generally bad condition. This one is a great find!

 

NOTE: I do not have the original power cord. It only requires a 2 prong extension cord small enough to fit into the hole on the back and push into the two standard AC cord prongs. I made up a cord with two spade connectors and pushed them onto the two prongs, and put a plastic hole plug over the hole. This way you can test and use the unit till a proper size cord can be found.
