Looks like a mad science project (in a good way). Is it strictly a headphone amp?View attachment 35811
I'm super excited to have the old Thorium back in my hands. I built this amp in 2008 and the gentleman I sold it to used it until the 3C24s died, then e-mailed me and asked if I wanted to buy it back (and his pair of AKG K-1000s). I was quite happy to get it back, and I spent a couple of hours this weekend redoing and optimizing some of the wiring, as well as installing a lovely pair of ceramic based 3C24 tubes. I have no idea what I'll end up doing with this amp, but it sure looks nice on the rack.
Sweet looking amps and digging the color. My ST20 didn’t have a bottom either so it might be a Leak thing.I recently fixed up a pair of leak TL-12+ amps. One had been blown up at some point, and both were nearly all original.

The owner wanted Russian PIO coupling caps and luckily I had them all in stock.

The can caps in these are a really strange diameter so I opened them up, drilled out the contents, then restuffed them with some new lytics.

On the back I removed the extra AC outlets and had some small brass panels made to hold power switches and a fuse holder. I also threaded binding posts into the factory speaker screw terminals. I also made some new bottom panels since these were console amps and likely never had any.
