FS: Linear Tube Audio microZOTOL MZ2 Headphone/Preamp

Recommended Posts

Item: Linear Tube Audio microZOTOL MZ2 Headphone/Preamp
Location: Hobart, TAS.
Price: $1950 OR NEAR OFFER.
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: Moved to integrated amp
Payment Method: Bank transfer/cash. Will post at buyers expense.
Extra Info: Hi, For sale is a LTA micro ZOTOL MZ2, in beautiful condition, with upgraded linear power supply and NOS 12sn7 preamp tubes. This preamp is very versatile. It is primarily a brilliant headphone amp but also a dedicated preamp at which it excels. It also can be utilised as a stand alone 1 watt integrated amp. I used it exclusively as a preamp and it's about the best, I've heard anyway, under $10,000 or so. As mentioned it also comes with the substantial upgraded linear power supply. It also is equipped with remote control. I've moved to an integrated amp so unfortunately the MZ2 is now surplus to requirements. I'm the second owner. The preamp is configured for Australian voltage and was originally purchased from the Australian dealer ( Macleans Hi-Fi I believe ).

Don’t underestimate this amplifier due to its small footprint, had a wonderful long term demo experience with this amp and low Z headphones (Sony mdr sa5000 and Qualia 010).

Thanks. I've never used this as a headphone amp, strictly as a preamp, but yes apparently it's up there with the best as a headphone device. Cheers.

Hi, were you using it as a preamp into active speakers, or a power amp?

I have an MZ2 also, bought here in the classifieds.

I use it as a preamp for my Sanders Magtech. Drives my magnepans nicely.

Also good for tube rolling to tailor your sound / gain 12at7's 12au7's etc.

Punches waaay above its price. Surprised this hasn't sold yet. GLWTS.

      Price: $570 Item Condition: New Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Toowoomba State: Queensland Payment Method: EFT, Cash or Creditcard on Pickup Reason for selling: Super Isolation Buy! Further information: Mentor loudspeakers feature the same top-line wide-dispersion soft-dome tweeters and 6-inch drivers as Richter flagship Dragons, offering that extra room-filling ‘oomph’ from a bookshelf model. But the real secret is in the cabinets, whose crossover filter design and cabinet noise reduction techniques culminate in a big, natural dynamic sound.
       
      The soft-dome neodymium tweeters provide wide dispersion, producing a lively and spacious sound stage with smooth musicality, and a response extending well beyond human hearing.
      The highly efficient 6-inch mid/bass drivers harness composite cones combining the natural acoustic finesse of paper with the strength of modern carbon fibre technology. This produces ideal damping characteristics plus the coherence and timing essential to draw you into the music.
      The awesome bass is rich, deep and firm.
      New crossovers were painstakingly designed with feedback from a large team of audio specialists across Australia to produce emotional vocals, an astonishingly vivid sound stage and a smooth blending of frequencies. The highly stable off-axis response means the Legends maintain realism in a wide spectrum of listening environments – because everyone’s listening room is different.
      The cabinets have been completely redesigned using non-parallel panels to reduce standing waves, and the comprehensive bracing is positioned to minimise harmonics. Double thickness rear and front baffles and new high density damping makes these the most neutral and musical cabinets we have ever produced.
