Exceedingly rare VFET  amplifier. Japan only manufacture by the renown --  Victor Company of Japan.  Known as Victor  in Japan, you may know the manufacturer as the exported brand JVC.  

 

The amplifer uses 4 pairs of NEC Vertical Fet Devices.  Manufacture - 1975- 1977.  

 

Japan only domestic market amplifier - therefore 100 VOLT Power supply is required. You will require a quality isolated 240v to 100v transformer. DO NOT use 120v or 110v supply to operate this amplifier.  This amplifier is in original condition including the speaker terminals. You will require bare speaker wire or at maximum 2mm pins  to connect speakers. Refer again to the date of manufacture.  

 

Power output - 100watts inmto 8 ohms. Weight - 20kg.  I have driven 8, 6 & 4 ohmn loads with this amplifier without issue.  

 

Beautifully built bolid (beyond solid) piece of audio in remarkable condition. You need to see one in the flesh to appreciate the design and build. A collectors item, that also sounds excellent. 

 

The price is firm. - Thank you.

This looks to be in mint condition and even has a headphone output. This would probably push ahead of my DAC and Cartridge purchase if I had the money.

 

Looks like a glorious piece of kit mate. GLWTS

This amp is a very good sounding amp.  No tranistor harshness . Very smooth and detailed

I auditoned Steve's amp on a very good horn system,  comparing it to highly considered Sony  TA-N78 100 watt Vfet amp.

They both sounded great with a very similar sound signature.  On the night if you had to pick a winner the Victor

was the prefered, just edging out the Sony by sounding little more organic.  

For the price, when considering the sound quality the Victor is a bargain.

This is the second one I've seen for sale this year. The other one was on Gumtree. SA I think, not sure.

Avoid if possible. This has been listed on SA Gumtree for at least 12 months. He is a well known dealer in used hi fi gear in Adelaide ( one of about 4 who control the whole market ) and isn't really wiling to negotiate price changes so it remains stupidly over priced.

  When contacted he is very vague about servicing and providence. I would avoid him and definitely go for the OP's listing.

      I offer my Süsskind PULS.
      They are made by Joachim Gerhard, well known previous owner and mastermind of Audio Physic. The price new was 8900 Euros including the stands. They are quite efficient with 95 dB, easy to drive for valve amps and they come with the dedicated stands made by Bfly Audio. 
      I have used them with my Ongaku for 4 years now and I really like them. They put out a very substantial bass and very smooth trebles without missing anything in the frequency range. Imaging is outstanding.
      They come from a reasonably famous record producer in Germany who used them for mixing and they are like new with original packing.
      I am selling them because I am thinking to upgrade to La Rosita New Babel. My other speakers (extremely good but also insanely big and heavy custom made JBL) will have to go as well but one after the other.

      Item Condition: Very Good Condition Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Perth, Western Australia State: WA Payment Method: Bank deposit or cash Reason for selling: No longer required Further information: Red Wine Audio Isabella Preamplifier for sale and for your consideration.  This unit has been converted to AC by Vinnie Rossi the designer and manufacturer of the preamplifier.  It really is a very high quality preamplifier and worth every penny for the asking price.  I've attached some reviews for you to check out.  These preamplifiers don't come up for sale often so pickup a really good preamplifier. Also, the unit comes with a remote control for ease of use.  I'm happy to answer any questions that you may have.  I have the original packing box so its good to go to be sent to anywhere in Australia.
