About This Listing

Accuphase C-230:
A highly-regarded Japanese amp with excellent sound!

The Accuphase C-230 is a flagship vintage high-fidelity control amplifier that was released in Japan in 1979, during the “Golden Era” of Japanese high-quality audio equipment. Like other Golden Era Accuphase amps, this unit is remarkable for both its highly advanced circuit engineering and the high quality of the components used in its construction. The first striking thing about the C-230 is the front panel, which features a plentitude of push buttons, offering a pleasing tactile interface not found in most other control amps. The C-230 features a superb circuit layout, with a completely symmetric push-pull circuit for all amplification stages, including the headphone amp. The equalizer amplifier output stage features a MOS FET design for high linearity and SNR. The headphone amplifier is a pure Class-A DC computer direct connection dedicated amplifier. The NF loop of all unit amplifiers avoid capacitors for DC cut, which removes coloration of the audio signal. There are a number of other top-notch engineering feats in this amplifier. In addition to fantastic sound, the C-230 boasts a beautiful natural rosewood cabinet. If you’re looking for a truly great vintage Japanese amp, be sure to check out the Accuphase C-230.

This particular unit is in very good condition, beautiful overall with some signs of age and use throughout (please check photos), including some scratches and threads. It has been thoroughly tested and checked by our professional in-house technician, confirming its flawless working quality. These Accuphase amps are known for their robust construction and use of only the highest quality parts, so it’s likely this unit will see many more years of use.
