I have a bunch of matching lot 2879's I stocked up on from my mobile days years ago. What's the best way to sell these that would protect both myself and the buyer? Last I checked there are numerous china toshibas on ebay.

Easiest way would be to find an amplifier builder who won't treat you wrong.

Selling them two or four at a time, "retail" could, or probably would involve headaches from incompetent buyers. Folks who will blow them up and want their money back. A builder will know their value, and use that to boost the price of a box built with your transistors. And he'll probably buy all of them together.

Naturally, selling them as a batch probably won't get you quite as high a price as selling one or three pair at a time.

But selling them all to a competent buyer is less likely to get you headaches.

C-class as I see? Bummer.
Class C bipolar transistor amp is like having a 600HP V8 that only makes max power in reverse! LOL What a waste!

I apologize for being a bit bitter. The craftsmanship is top notch even if I hate this type of design and build. I should not have been a jerk about the build quality and attention to detail. Clearly that was wrong on my part! Sorry!

You know shit is a$$ backwards when you purchase NOS amps from the late 1970's because the entire amp is cheaper than the purchase price of the transistors in said amp!

    3Y0J: Update January 29, 2023: Ken estimates Marama should arrive at Bouvet on Monday evening just before sunset. He says he anticipates a good weather window for at least two days then. The team will attempt to move the equipment and supplies onto the island using the zodiac then. They have two zodiacs. They are hoping to accomplish it in those two days. :cool:
