Extra Info:

Well  here it is - one of the grand-daddies of headphone amplifiers.  The ALO Studio Six is all valve from start to finish, hand-made and employs point to point wiring.  I bought it eleven months ago thinking that I was going to be limited to headphone listening only, but now circumstances have changed and I am going back to a speaker based system.  That said, I have loved listening to music through this system knowing that it's quality is of the highest order.

One can use many superlatives when describing this amp and they all apply. It's an Incredibly powerful yet nuanced and detailed SET amp with an amazing soundstage.  It is a tube rollers delight and I also have several best of breed tubes that I will be selling separately. Don't be concerned that the headphone jacks are single ended with no balanced  outputs.  I compared this to a Woo Audio running balanced connection into my Sennheiser HD800S and, in my opinion the ALO came out streets ahead.  It clearly had more body, a lower noise floor and of course that SET signature.  There are also four headphone sockets so the amp can drive four sets of cans simultaneously without any loss of sound quality - perfect for shared listening and GTGs.  For those who play vinyl, ALO make a matching phono stage which can be powered off the amps high quality power supply.

This amp has been looked after meticulously in a pet-free, child-free home; it's never been over-driven or abused.  This would be a terrific alternative to buying a new amplifier.  Current RRP is $5.649 and with the falling Aus dollar, this is likely to get higher. The amp will be sold with the original valve set, all of which are unused apart from initial testing.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Melbourne State: Victoria Payment Method: PayPal, EFT, Cash Reason for selling: Not used Further information:
      I bought this in December last year to go with my Campfire Audio Andromedas (also for sale). This was a good upgrade (and I was a bit of a cable sceptic) and a great pairing. Campfire Audio started by making cables, I think, before adding IEMs.
      The cable has MMCX connectors that can also be used on Shure SE846, SE535, Westone.
      The new version of this is $599rrp at A2A.
      Can discount if bought with Andromedas:

      Hi guys,
      After the Alo gateway or passport by themselves. Doesn't really matter if the passport won't hold its battery charge, as long as it still can still process the power for the amp.
