I would like to start this thread by thanking AK member rjsalvi (Robert J Salvi) for restoring my spec 2. A while back I purchased the spec 2 at an estate sale with other gear. All of the gear came in original boxes. The spec 2 was not beat up, but was showing its age. When I got it home I plugged it in and it went into protection mode. I placed it back in the box and put it away for a couple of years. Recently I was able to see and hear a couple of refurbished vintage amps that Robert had done and they looked and sounded like new. I asked Robert if he would take my spec 2 on and he said it sounds like fun. Robert has been around audio since the age of 13. He founded Ambiance Acoustics in 1994. Well the amp is now done and I am completely blown away with the results. When I picked it up he had it hooked up to his Super Cube Evos and EQC-1 Active Equalizer and I was in audio bliss. Robert, thank you so very much for your professional and courteous service. I have attached pics so you can see Roberts excellent work.
