Recommended Posts

 

Item: Almarro A318B 18Watt single ended triode
Location: Kinglake Vic 3763
Price: sold
Item Condition: Used, excellent condition
Reason for selling: No longer using
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Only
Extra Info: This is a beautiful looking and sounding amp that has many excellent reviews. Very powerful for a SET amp and will drive many more speakers than most lower powered SETs. I believe these are no longer available and overseas prices have been going up since production stopped. Output tubes are a pair of Russian 6C33B triodes and uses 6H8C/6SN7 input and 6H9C/6SL7 driver tubes. The whole amp is point-to-point wired with no circuit boards. I Am the original owner and it was purchased new from Audiophile in Fitzroy in late 2012. Amp Has very low hours and is in excellent condition both cosmetically and in operation. It has a pair of very low hour NOS 1970 dated winged-C 6C33Cs (less than 10 hours so still breaking in). These are widely considered the holy grail of 6C33C tubes and are almost unobtainable now and therefore quite valuable. Input tube is original Russian 6H9C which is as new (I used a NOS 6SL7 which is not included) Driver is an equally low hour Tungsol 6SN7. Original English owners manual from Audiophile included but no original packaging. Selling because I just don't have the listening time to enjoy this any more.

I love these 6c33c tubes there in my audio valve assistantant 100. They sound like 845 tubes but with more detail and better bottom end. If you run this amp with easy load speaker you will be rewarded. Good luck with the sale.
