What are the specs?

I would say around 50 wpc.  Probably uses 6072As as inputs and 12AT7s as drivers.

      Item:  FS: SYNOLA SE 509 SET Amplifier with 20 NOS ITT Tubes
      Location: Tassie
      Price: $!500-. plus postage in 2 boxes , unless picked up of course...!!!!
      Item Condition: only slightly used , as I am on Solar power...!!!
      Reason for selling: winter years
      Payment Method: bank transfer
      Extra Info: This is a serious bargain as you can sell the NOS Valves for that ...!!! Believe me , great sounding amplifier...!!!!
      The Synola amplifier was built by the designer Reinhard Seyer in Germany and very unfortunately , on it's world travel received some slight chassis damage (see pictures) , because of the heavy German special transformers...I was going to give it a better chassis , but , as it sounded and still looked so, so good with the right original colour , it stayed that way....also , because I am off the grid on Solar Power , it did not get to run the hours it deserved ...I have had many valve amps in my life time , yes including the mighty Kronzilla and as this one is very special , with no capacitors in the circuit, it stayed ....!!!!
      It gives you 8 watts of very nice SET power and to top it off there is 20 , yes a total of  "twenty"  NOS ITT Lorenz Valves to come with this unique Amplifier , no original boxes...!!!
      ITT Lorenz were made by Phillips in the Heerlen/Holland factory , so believe me , one of the best you can get...!!!!
      Apart from the chassis repair , I would strongly suggest that one modifies the bias access from internal to external...it's OK for a experienced person to check and in my time the bias never drifted . but I thought better point that out...Freight . if not local , will be in 2 boxes and the amplifier will be packed super strong...!!!!
       
      Please PM me for any questions and if you would like more pictures ....I will only answer per PM and prefer not to have silly non related posts in the For Sale section..., OF COURSE , I will also gladly return your PHONE call and provide more details and pictures...!!!
      Thank you ....!!!!

      Item: Cayin CS-88A Integrated Valve Amplifier

      Item Condition: Mint, As New
      Reason for selling: Upgrading/Change of direction
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, EFT, Paypal + 2.6%, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
       
      I have owned this amp since July this year. Originally purchased in preparation for a setup with Klipsch Cornwall III speakers, however I went a different route and ultimately purchased Revel M106’s. While this is an exceptional sounding valve amplifier it is not really matched well with the Revel’s and I will be upgrading to a Benchmark system. The build quality is exceptional, regardless of price. Selling to help fund the upgrade.
       
      This amp is in mint as-new condition, with no more that 5 hours use on it total. I have all of the original packaging and accessories. 19 months warranty remaining.
       
      Retails for $3,499. Selling $2,750 ono
       
      Happy to post if buyer pays postage, but realize its a very heavy item.

      Item: Image by Nelson Audio EL34 Power Amps (Mono blocks)
      Location: Melbourne City
      Price: SOLD
      Item Condition: Great working order
      Reason for selling: Space constraints /Simplifying system
      Payment Method: Pickup only (Melbourne CBD) - Cash only
      Extra Info:
       
      Punching well above their weight, Image by Nelson Audio are based on the Marantz 9 power amps. 75 watts output based on 4 x EL34 tubes and each unit weighs in at about 35kg each so I'm afraid local pick up only.
       
      These mono-blocks made a substantial difference to my system in terms of texture, resolution, speed, attack and the general warmth especially with vinyl source material.
       
      Priced to SELL to clear up room in my limited space so please, no negotiation. Since purchasing this, I have had the switches and new tubes fitted with about 100 hours on them. The units have some very minor cosmetic blemishes as indicated in photos and functionally they are a joy to live with.
