  1. These are amazing, this is a bargain. Best electrostatics I’ve heard
  2. For sale: Octave v40 SE, silver Location: Kensington, Melbourne Price: $3950 Item condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: too many stereos Payment methods: PayPal, cash, direct transfer , pickup preferred Extra info: Beautiful valve amp for sale, comes with remote and extra tubes Near new condition, used only in a smoke & child free household. Incredible pairing with any high efficiency speakers New cost is $8000. I’m selling for $3950 http:// https://addictedtoaudio.com.au/products/octave-v40-se-integrated-amplifier The V 40 SE is a line level integrated amplifier with 2 x 40 W peak output power. He is a further development and direct descendant of the successful V 40 and V 50 amplifier models. His powerful, clear bass fundamentals and his captivating resolution in the high frequencies win much respect. His unique features lift the V 40 SE into the 21st Century, while his performance earned him the rare “Stereoplay Highlight” (issue 07-2009), a prestigious award bestowed by the German high-end audio magazine Stereoplay. The V 40 SE output stage consists of two power pentodes (Type 6550) for each channel. Due to the BIAS Control and Monitoring System, the use of other pin-compatible output tubes is possible to match the amplifier to personal taste, or to benefit from new or improved tubes. Like all OCTAVE Amps the, V 40 SE is based on the enhanced pentode configuration. This configuration ensures the absolute stability of the amplifier against the unstable impedance of the loudspeaker. Impedance mismatch is without consequence, and the V 40 SE is stable down to a 2 Ohm Load. An important contributor to this stability is the single impedance output transformer. The V 40 SE is the perfect amp for speakers with an average efficiency rating.But not only is the low impedance capability an advantage, with his exceptional Signal-to-Noise ratio of –110dB / Full Power he is also an ideal partner for high efficiency loudspeakers. Power Output: 2 x 40 Watt into 4 Ohm Frequency Response: 20 Hz – 70 kHz @ 40 W -1 / -3 dB 5 Hz – 70 kHz @ 10 W -0 / -2 dB Total Harmonic Distortion: Signal-to-Noise Ratio: -110 dB / 40 W Noise / Ripple: Optimum Speaker Impedance: 3 – 16 Ohm Minimum Speaker Impedance: 2 Ohm No-load current: 28 mA - BIAS low, 34 mA - BIAS high Connections: Inputs: 4 x Line Level (Cinch) Outputs: 1 x Tape Pre-Out and Main-In Features: ECO Mode, Bias Adjustment, Power Management Configuration Push Pull Pentode Circuit Negative Grid Voltage adjustable for each tube with 3 turn Precision Regulators, Wideband Output Transformers using Silicon steel PMZ Core, single Impedance Output, Optimum Load Impedance 3 - 10 Ohm Nominal Speaker Impedance, Effieciency greater than 85dB, Amplifier remains stable with No Load and Output short circuited Weight: 18,6 kg Standard Accessory: Power Cord, 3 mm Screwdriver, IR-Remote Control Main Fuse: 230/240 V mains: 2,5 A slow-blow type H

  11. Sorry to disappoint you mr Gremrock... Much as I'd like to have a 20 every week from you.. It's sold pending payment to another fine fellow Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I demoed many dacs before settling on the Meitner. Is stomps all over many much hyped dacs. I A/B'd it against my old Metrum Hex, and it was laughable how much better it was. Bought it on the spot
