Vintage Pilot 602M Tube Tuner-Amplifier Receiver Works, Near Mint Condition Picture and Description:
Estate Item: A near mint condition Pilot 602M Tuner-Amplifier from the late 1950s or early 1960s. This receiver is the best I have seen of a Pilot, ever. I tested it for several hours yesterday and it performed beautifully with the unique, warm sonic sound quality you expect from Pilot equipment. The case is intact. The lettering is all there. The tubes are all Pilot labeled Amperex save for three Telefunkens, all of which I will list off below. The FM stage worked wonderfully (this is an FM only tuner) as I dialed in stations with ease and without an antenna. The Tape stage was tested using a Apple computer and ITunes, and it also worked flawlessly. I did not have a spare turntable to check the Phono stage but my guess is that it will be similar to the other two stages. I did not and will not take off the bottom, as some potential buyers like, as I do not want to harm a hair on the piece. I have had a similar Pilot for nearly eight years and it plays like a dream. I would STRONGLY SUGGEST that the winner still have this looked at by someone who knows his/her stuff, checking the capacitors etc.. The control knobs and switches will need to be lubed (Deoxit) but otherwise the is PLUG & PLAY. The only flaw I see is on the bottom of the black outer case or cover some of the paint is coming off (see last pic). Once someone gives this piece a technician's okay they will have a solid tube receiver for the next 50 years. The tubes are as follows: 4 - EL84 - Pilot (Made in France by Amperex label) 2 - 12AU7 - Pilot (Made in France by Amperex label) 5 - 12AX7 - 3 Pilots (Made in France by Amperex label) 2 Telefunkens 2 - 6AU6 - Pilot (Made in France by Amperex label) 1 - 6AQ8 - Telefunken 1 - 6FG6 - Pilot (Made in France by Amperex label) As is most common with vintage equipment of this age, this sale is AS IS No Reserve Price On This Sale!
