Hi everyone,


I bought this on SNA two weeks ago from Snrub. It's a terrific unit- exactly as described by Snrub in his original post (see below).

But long story short.... after looking for a Taurus for quite a while I eventually ended up with two! So I'm offering this one for sale again. It's been tested and sounds superb- and includes a nice power cable as per the original listing.


Offered for the same price as before.





I'm happy to post- just contact me for a quote.


Cheers, Dom

      Item: Vero 50ex Headphone Amplifier and MIT 330 0.6m stereo input cable
      Location: Northern Tasmania
      Price: $1990
      Item Condition: Virtually new - used less than 8 hours
      Reason for selling: Surplus to requirements
      Payment Method: Bank Transfer
      Extra Info: Purchased on impulse as a possible upgrade.  Maybe not an upgrade but a genuine surprise to find that with unbalanced input it sounded identical to my Violextric V281 connected in balanced mode.  I was told it would "burn in" but I did not observe that in the few hours I tried it out.
      My appraisal it is as good as the Violectric is with good foundation because I had both amps going at the same time with each connected to Sennheiser HD800S headphones with the same after market cabling.  I merely changed over headphones in a matter seconds to compare the two with the AQ from classical. jazz and pop.
      So here is an amplifier for the audiophile without a balanced setup that will sound as good as a Violectric V281 in balanced mode.
      Another advantage is its small size and the fact that running on battery, heat and ventillation are not an issue.  It could even be used in portable mode away from a power point.
      I have not registered it so the buyer will have new warranty.
      The price in  the USA is $USD3000 (which is $AUD4400 before GST)for the amp so I'm selling it, virtually new, at less than half price so it is a genuine bargain with MIT input cabling thrown in.  I'm not keeping it as the Violectric is doing the same job and my main headphone listening system is set up for it - no advantage for me to keep the Vero and sell the Violectric.  And I must confess to having been lazy about selling it - it has been sitting on the shelf unused for over 12 months but it is tinme for it to go to someone as a nice Xmas present!

      Item: Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid (CTH) Headphone Amp
      Location: Canberra
      Price: $240 incl. postage
      Item Condition: 9/10
      Reason for selling: Recouping $
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal
      Extra Info:
      I've had this amplifier for about a year. 
      I've driven both Massdrop Sennheiser HD6XX and Nuraphones (corded) through it, either streaming Spotify and Tidal, or CDs played through a desktop Teac DR-L700. Recently also used with a Schiit Modi 3 DAC.
      It comes with the original switched mode PSU with a US form-factor prongs.  It's my first valve-based / hybrid unit. Its character is both detailed, with a revealing soundstage, but also has that softer relaxing valve character that makes extended listening a pleasure. 
      Valve-swapping ('tube-rolling') is of course possible with this.
      The fit and finish of the CTH are exemplary and its neat dimensions means that it doesn't occupy much desk-space.  The surface finish is a satin black that doesn't mark easily from fingers. 
      The connections have a quality feel also. It has both a normal 6.3mm jack and a balanced (4 pin XLR) connection.
      The original packaging is good quality and makes for easy and secure posting.
      Drop (formerly known as Massdrop) current pricing is US$250 plus shipping and of cpurse the Gerry Harvey import tax (10% or so).
