  1. Item: Red Wine Audio 30.2 Signature LFP-V Edition Battery Power amplifier Location: Melbourne 3052 Price: $950 Item Condition: Very good 8/10 Reason for selling: Too many amps This Red Wine Audio amp is the last and final version - Signature 30.2 LFP-V. I understand that the integrated amp version sold for about US$3,500. This amp features the upgraded battery pack/charger enhancements which were available for $1000 as an upgrade option. This Red Wine Signature amp is from around 2010 featuring Vinnie Rossi's tube warmth/richness and exceptional speed and clean power of solid state, with the Lithium(LiFePO4[LFP]) batteries. I keep changing things up and moved from a Pass Labs pre and power, to a Pass Labs pre with a Linear Tube Audio power, to a Linear Tube Audio pre and the Red Wine Audio Signature 30.2 power. I then changed to a Linear Tube Audio power (pictured). I found the Zotl 10 in standard form not to be a significant step up from this Red Wine Audio amp. I then upgraded the Zotl 10 to mark ii version and, whilst this amp has now set me back over $6k, it is now pushing into another league and so the Red Wine Audio is ready for a new life with a new admirer. I have upgraded the valve to a NOS Philips ECC88 Amperex Bugle Boy at a cost of $160. This had a dramatic impact on the presentation, especially in the vocal and upper registers where there is more openness and a cleaner, more natural sound. Of all the amps I have had and lived with, and I've tried more than I would be willing to commit to my digital footprint, this amp reminds me of the Pass Labs Aleph, I think it was the 3, in its presentation, for its clean quality and even handed power delivery. As a battery power amp, the background is not quiet, it is non existent - absolutely silent! This was AUD $3,000 retail when new. As you see from the more the photos the amp is in very good condition and I have the original box, original amp, power charger/supply, original JJ tube, the upgraded tube fitted, and a long standard IEC power cord, the original packaging and foam so it is ready to be safely shipped anywhere at the buyer's cost.

  2. For anyone thinking about this combo, I have compared directly with price equivalent British options - Cyrus, Musical Fidelity, Linn - and in my opinion the Densen gear is a cut above. Very open and refined at the retail price point. Bargain at this price point! GLWTS
  3. This is a sweet sounding tuner for anyone in the market - and a great price. I've got too many to buy another! GLWTS
  4. Have PM’d re RCA tubes with intent to purchase
