My husband was an audiophile from way back and he passed away a year ago.  His setup included a separate pre-amp and power amp.   The power amp was having problems (it was an Audiotronix CC-II) and I just heard back that it cannot be fixed.  His speakers are floor Mission speakers, his turntable is a Rega Planar and the pre-amp is Audio Research SP-5.  I am looking to replace the power amp but don't want to break the bank.   I'm OK with purchasing it used.   I am clueless - help!

Are you sure on the model? I can't find any information on that... If you know wattage, that also helps. Model #s for the Missions too please.

 

As for breaking the bank, giving us a budget is most helpful. $100 can break some banks, $1,000 doesn't break others!

OK - the model on the power amp is Audionix CC2.   2 channels, 70 watts per channel.  Mission 774 speakers.  $300 max on the power amp.

Hi Kim

As everyone else I'm sorry to hear of your loss but also glad to hear you are carrying on with his equipment.

 

As to your power amp I suspect it's an audionics and was quite a nice thing so I'd try elsewhere for repair, it was a well made US designed and made product and I would expect pretty rare now, it dates from the late 70's

To get something new of the same quality and lively sound I would expect would cost a lot of money and if used it would probably need to be something valve (tube) or possibly British which is not going to be that easy in the US so I would reach out to the people on the web page in the link above to see if they can help, you might need to ship to someone for repair but I think it would be worth it.
