Price: $2,800
Item Condition: 
Mint, As New
Reason for selling: Upgrading/Change of direction

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 $2,800

 

Happy to post if buyer pays postage, but realize its a very heavy item.

      Price: $980 Item Condition: Very good Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact,I can ship this item Suburb or Town: Adelaide State: South Australia Payment Method: Cash, Bank deposit; PayPal without fees Reason for selling: Purchased EC 4.8 preamp Further information:  Price dropped from $1100. Includes remote and will be well packaged with free insured courier for an interstate purchaser. I preferred this EC pre to a number of others (EC and more exotic) I have used with my EC 180 mono block power amplifiers. It has only one single ended (RCA) input and one balanced (XLR) input selectable by a push button on the front which keeps the electronics inside very straightforward. But if you don't want to use balanced,  you can use adaptors to get two RCA inputs.
