Looks good, however is that the wrong size cabinet for that unit? Looks like a McIntosh cabinet but for a larger model.

Good eyes. It's an aftermarket cab. Not the right size(was being used with a C24 that's similar size) but all I have at the moment. Doesn't really bug me, and it's easier to remove when I need to change a tube or get to the back.

 

Nice, I have a C8 Record Compensator. It used to be hooked up to a Fisher monoblock. )MT(, posted on June 28, 2020 at 20:40:05

One of the coolest-looking pieces of gear ever. No slouch int the sound department either. FWIW, the LED bulb kits for that really make it pop.

Enjoy!

Agree with everything but no LED for me. Blasphemy!

Keeping it original I guess is a plus for those who want it as a collector's item. But the LEDs do a better job, give even light across the face, emit less heat, and certainly give it a far more dramatic look.

That looks nice, but I like the original look, which is part of the reason I bought it. But nice to have choices.

 

Anyone know the differences between aC8 and C11 or C20 ?, posted on July 5, 2020 at 16:55:02

I know the C8 is mono and lacks a power supply.

However it is 12ax7 based and has phono eq compensation (like a C20).

How similar is the C8 circuit to the circuits of the C11 or C20 ?

Thanks.

 

My C8 has a power supply built-in. )MT(, posted on July 5, 2020 at 17:40:17

Required power from another source, such as an umbilical cord connected to the octal socket of a MC30 or 60 amp. Yours is rare. Thanks. Ross
