The Rocket 88 is very interesting from several perspectives. It uses a "Retro" design Cat's Eye tube for monitoring output level for each channel. You can see them in the photo above left. These are the round green "things" on the left and right side of the amplifier front panel. They were used on various products back in the 1960s, especially on tape recorders (they were reel-to-reel recorders back then). Only professional recorders had VU meters, and this was long before LCD recording meters that we see on modern cassette recorders of all price ranges.

 

The Rocket 88 is switchable between functioning in Triode Mode (20 watts Pure Class A output per channel), and Ultra-Linear Pentode Mode (40 watts Class A/B per channel). There is a small toggle switch behind the far left KT-88 and far right KT-88 for switching each channel between these two modes independently, although I cannot think of a reason why I would ever use one channel in triode mode and the other channel in pentode mode. It may be just to keep the circuits as isolated as possible.

      Item Condition: Excellent 9.5/10 Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Sydney State: New South Wales Payment Method: PayPal, EFT, Cash on Pick up Reason for selling: NLR Further information: 
      The last piece of the hifi before I go the 'one box for the good room', that has been strongly recommended to me on the homefront!
       
      Sonos Connect and the Sonos app are the easiest to use interfaces for your hifi kit out there. If great sound and convenience is for you, then this is it. Does it play at and better than CD quality, yes - will it outperform a $5000+ player and DAC, no - but it will likely be easier to use and integrate!
       
      Will include 2 Sonos ethernet cables (if you want to go cable rather than wireless which is what I always did) and a pair of interconnects.
       
      Comes with box.
       
      Can ship at your expense. I usually use Sendle or Australia Post. Upon payment, I can deliver within 10km of Sydney GPO as well.

      Item Condition: Used - excellent condition Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: DERRIMUT State: Victoria Payment Method: Paypal, EFT or cash on pickup Reason for selling: Simplify to all-in-one unit Further information:  I bought this from previous owner who looked after it well.  In excellent overall condition.  Was thinking going separates processor/multichannel amps but too messy with wiring and overcrowded with components on the bench so decided to go for all-in-one unit.
       
      Has HDMI inputs and output and all standard digital and analogue connections.  Remote is and manual included.  No original box.
       
      It performs beautifully with great sense of power and speed with Blu-ray or Netflix movies.   For 2 channels its internal preamp sounds on par with my previous Primare multichannel amplifier, with only a touch softer midrange that is difficult to notice.

      Very rare PARC in excellent condition save for a mark at very rear of top cover. Complete with original packaging, user manual, and test CD.
