Colin's classic: Maggie MP250

edited January 16 in Amplifiers
A.C. MAGNUM  MP-250

No real reason for posting this, other than the pics came out rather well this morning. I took them as I might be selling her on (I was asked), and I need to buy a bunch of tools. I already have a nice Wonfor Pre-amp, so a rare flash of common sense!

Although this was built after Colin's time with A.C. MAGNUM and was a slightly cheapened version (Mr Relph liked to shave on components), It has been updated and hot-rodded to be better than it ever was new (including a few fresh ideas from Col). The only thing we didn't modify the phono stage as I'm digital.

This amp was probably built the same time I was (early '80s?) but Colin is still updating and servicing his designs. Great service!

    Ah yes.
    I think I had been informed. Didn’t write it down unfortunately...

    No Royds for about four years now, I think. :)  Except, the sound I have will be immediately familiar to anyone who loves Royds… Vive la Triangle!



    Something like these (lifted from google image search)
  • Thanks Alan.
    Nice looking big speakers. And the sound is Roydeque...? Good stuff.
    (That spike looks like a toe waiting to be impaled though! Ouch!)
