I like the look of those HF87s. Never even seen one in the U.K..
I cleaned up the top side of the HF87 and it looks pretty good. Some of the transformer hardware is a little rusty and I may change it down the road but good enough for now.
Wow! You have the amps all looking great! Some super nice gear you lucky dog.
Hope it'll soon be sounding as good as it looks.
I have it mostly rebuilt but still have the two voltage doubler caps to replace. So I plugged it into my variac and brought it up nice and slow and so far its nice and quiet but the voltages are a little on the low side so I suspect those caps are not in the best condition. I put a source to it and on my test speakers it sounds really amazing. Once I get a chance to change the last two caps I will try it on the RF7's and see how quiet it really is and give a report.
I had a chance tonight to finish the re-cap on the HF-87 tonight and did the first power up without a hitch. It is dead quiet with no signal and man it is one very powerful sounding machine, you can feel the bass.
