Just got this beauty today. I have a AU-101 that was recapped from a fellow AK’er and fell in love so decided to look for a little beefier model. After my research and availability I picked this 555A. Cosmetically it’s 9/10. All original, came in original box with all original paperwork. Was told it sat in the box most of its life. Since this will be my daily driver, I’m now on the waitlist for the infamous Leestereo to completely upgrade this sucker! It’s no slouch at all now. Very “airy” with lots of detail.
