I had/have several beautiful amps (Fender Twin Reverb, Mesa Mark III, Ceriatone Express), several differents preamps (Mesa Quad and Triaxis, Brunetti Mille, Marshall JMP1) and played with other great amps (Soldano SLO, Masotti XM100, Marshall Plexi, Bogner Excstasy)...but today I had an mystic experience when I played for the first time with the amp that I bought yesterday: an original Hiwatt DR103 (ca.1978 - Highlight production) in near-mint condition...
IMHO This is the best sounding clean amp that I played! The sound is so sweet that you can cry...it seems a choir of angel that are singing through my 4x12 :)
...and it takes every pedal I have (OCD, KarKrash, Cruncbox and CD, Boss CE2, Skreddy Pinkmour and Pinkflesh, TRex Tremster) in a exceptional way.
Now I understand why the sound of David Gilmour is so beautiful! :)

A sweet amp indeed, I'm a '77 504 owner myself. But check the year on yours, by '78 they weren't 4 input holes anymore, just 2.

Congratulations!

I would change the caps before that 50uf+50uf leaks out and makes a mess in it.

It looks to be a late 1976 or early '77.

Very Nice!
