25 watts my ass, this thing is loud, even with 6 ohm speakers that recommend 80 watts or so. I’ll see how it does with 8 ohm speakers probably this weekend.
So, I got this thing for free a couple days ago, it’s an Electra EDS-299, and all I can figure out is it was sold at a place called Electronic Distributors based in Vancouver in the 60s and 70s. Other than that, it doesn’t exist on the internet. There’s some speculation on the same thread I found that it could be related to Lafayette amps sold by Lafayette Radio Electronics in the states around the same time.
I opened it up yesterday and it was dust-free, and all looked well. Toshiba transistors and Nippon Chemi-Con caps, all very original looking. Now I have it driving my PSBs, and doing a very fine job. Similar in sound quality to my Sansui 210, and at least twice the power.
I like it.
