Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This fine amplifier was chosen for his personal use as his reference amplifier by renowned professional audio designer and acoustician Graham Thirkell. Graham’s many tape recorder designs are unmatched, and his large range of studio equipment still highly sought. Read Graham’s profile at this Audio Engineering Society link: http://www.aesmelbourne.org.au/graham-thirkell/ Graham and Kostas Metaxas had many conversations on the differences and similarities between high end and professional design and requirements, and they collaborated on occasion. The phono input on this amp is one result of that collaboration. It is difficult for me to say goodbye to this amp. Not only because it has such a beautiful sound, but also as it holds so many memories of listening together with Graham to new music and equipment. This is a once only opportunity to purchase and enjoy a piece of proud history of the design initiatives of Australian high quality audio designers.
