Default Leak Stereo 30 plus. giveaway

I have a LEAK Stereo 30 Plus with one channel not working. Free to a good home. (pickup only, Cambridge, observe social distancing)
This is one of the first UK made silicon transistor amplifiers (1963?). When I bought it in a second hand shop about 10 years ago it worked pretty well considering it's age. I don't really have the tools / access to parts to allow me to repair it.
The issue appears to be in the power amp side, probably an output transistor. The pre-amp section is modular, one board for each channel, and can be swapped by unplugging the board from the multi way connector. Doing this showed both boards are fine.

Launched in 1970 I think. A well regarded little vintage amp.

You're thinking of the Delta 30. The Stereo 30 was indeed 1963:

Just to be pedantic,
The Stereo 30 was a Germanium transistor amplifier introduced in December 63ish.
The OP has a Stereo 30+ which is a Silicon amplifier. That came shortly after the Stereo 70 in 1967/68.

Yes please if you're running a hat. It's an amp I've wanted for years!
