Pure Class A 2x35 Watt PSET (Parallel Set) which is used in the very high end tube
amplifiers like Aries Cerat $30K USD. This gives you uncompromising power to run in pure class A almost any 89+ db speakers. Lack of power is Achilles weak spot of most tube amplifiers and I believe PSET is the best solution used by the very high end manufacturers. Legendary Mastersound brand - makes PF100 tube amplifier $50K USD. Fabulous musical EL34 tubes. To my knowledge, this model is absolutely the best value for integrated tube amplifier in that price range; made in Italy but priced similarly to comparable Chinese models. Includes very good phono pre-amplifier - same as in the flagship models. This is Box R version with remote control (cost $330 AUD extra).

Item: Little Dot Mk II Headphone Amplifier
Item Condition: Mint
Reason for selling: Selling head-fi rig
Payment Method: Pickup, EFT, Cash, Paypal (buyer pays all transaction fees & postage)
Great condition and one of the best value headphone amplifiers available. Australian variant with 220v power supply. Upgraded Value Electronic CV4010 KQDD/K and 6H6 VIII tubes.
The device has a single volume knob on the front along with a blue LED and of course, the 6.3mm port. At the back you can find the input and output RCA pots as well as the power button. The specifications of the amp are as follows:
Input: Gold-Plated Unbalanced Phono (RCA) Jacks Output: 1/4" Gold-Plated Stereo Headphone out Driver Tubes: 6JI Power Tubes: 6N6 Frequency Response: 20HZ - 50KHz (-1dB) THD+N: 0.1% (50mW into 300 ohms) Suitable Headphone Impedance: 32 - 600 ohms Pre-Amplifier Output Impedance: 10K ohms Power Output: 300mW into 300 ohms 200mW into 120 ohms 100mW into 32 ohms Average Power Usage: 28 watts Dimensions: 210mm (length) by 110mm (width) by 130mm (height) Weight: 2.5 kg or 5.5 lbs.
The Little Dot MK II boasts a SEPP (single ended push pull) circuit (in similar vein to the rest of the MK-series tube amplifiers) greatly increases sound quality, dynamic range, output impedance, and harmonic distortion. The Little Dot MK II also provides gain control of 3, 5, and 10 via internal DIP switches for fine-tuning so you can maximize synergy with almost any headphone you have, whether it be 32 ohms or 600.
Some cheap tube amps have what is called a hybrid design, where the power is provided by a transistor based circuit and the driver circuitry is tube based. Examples of these designs are the headphone amps with only a single vacuum tube (the driver tube). Not only does the Little Dot MK II have a fully tube based design (both power and driver elements are tube based) it actually has independent circuitry for the left and right channels.
So essentially, you have 1 power tube and 1 driver tube for the left channel and 1 power tube and 1 driver tube for the right channel. This is called an SEPP design (think of it as 2 + 2 design).
Item: Vincent Audio SP-T700 Monoblock Amps (silver)
Location: Forestville NSW
Price: $2,200 pair
Item Condition: Very good. 2 years old
Reason for selling: NLR
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal
Extra Info: For sale are my pair of Vincent Audio SP-T700 Hybrid Monoblock amplifiers in silver. I am the original owner, and they are 2 years old. Selling due to a change of configuration.
See https://www.vincent-tac.de/en/product-lines/tubeline/sp-t700.html for full details.
See https://funaudio.com.au/brands/vincent/ for link to current importer.
I have the original boxes in good condition, and I'm willing to ship at the buyer's expense. 16kg each in two cartons.
The current setup is NAIM Nait driving two B&W CM9 floorstanders and NAD T762 (soon to be replaced) driving the center and surrounds ( B&W)
Oppo 105D being used as a pre amp, connected to NAIM via balanced o/p for music (CD, SACD, Bluray etc)
Need a streamer to be used with NAIM ( maybe via 105D )
Thinking about getting an Auralic Aries or NAD C658 (with Dirac) as the streamer.
Leaning more towards the C658 as Auralic don't have much of a presence here in Oz? ( for after sales issues)
What are your thoughts?
