Willsenton R8 tube amp - integrated amp, power amp and headphone amp.

 

One of the new darlings of youtube audio reviewers and a very well made piece of Chi-fi!

 

  • Takes KT88, EL34, 6CA7, KT77 or 6550 output tubes. 
  • Specced with the optional PSVane EL34-PH output tubes. 
  • Paid 2100AUD in April and arrived on my doorstep on May 5th 2020, so less than a month old.
  • Save $550 and a significant wait as these things seem to be in high demand - price is firm
  • 230V model
  • Still have original box and outer box so no issues with Australia wide postage (est $50-80)

This in-depth review covers all the features well - i never thought i'd say this but read the comments as well to learn more about the headphone amp (supposed to be fantastic) and speaker pairings.

I've read a lot of good things about this amp, for both the speakers and headphone parts. I would have definitely taken it if I didnt go the DIY way.
GLTWS!

It has been very well reviewed and punches well above it price point by all accounts. Point to Point wiring and the fact it can be used as an Integrated Amp, 'Power Amp', with multiple tube options, Triode, UL, gives you 8 Amplifiers for the price of one... Heaven knows what it would cost if it was built in Europe or USA?... 

GLWTS

As Bryan said - it's a great deal. I don't use headphones but otherwise it reminds me of a much improved Musical Paradise MP-301 i had years ago - lots of options for tube rolling which allows you to tailor the sound to your preference. If it doesn't sell i'll hang on to it, i just have too many amps...

I've never heard the Tannoy DC-6 but I have heard the Revolution XT 6 with tubes amps, it was really good!


And I just met Mike, very nice man, you can't go wrong doing business with him ;)

Just dropped the price a bit on this - getting some spousal pressure to clear our my pile of gear.

I'm contemplating an amp upgrade and this is tempting. I live in Taree, 320kms north of Sydney.

 

If we agree on a sale, is it an option to drive and meet halfway, this amp being heavy and fragile to ship?

      Item: Grado SR225i/e (or similar model) headphones
      Price Range: Make me an offer and we'll go from there!
      Item Condition: Used but in good condition
      Extra Info: I also used to own the 225i years ago when I first got into headphones, I miss that sound. 
      I'm in the Melbourne Knox area, so if location is reasonable I can collect, but shipping at an agreed price is of course fine, too.

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Tasmania State: Tasmania Payment Method: PayPal, EFT, Cash Reason for selling: Upgrade Schiit Audio Jotunheim Balanced Headphone Amplifier + Dac/Preamp
       
      This is an awesome all in one DAC/Balanced Preamp/Headphone Amp. Built like a tank and great sound, been very happy with it for the last year and I have now upgraded to a Auralic Vega.... so this can go to a new home.
       
      I can throw in some short XLR cables and free shipping anywhere in AUS to sweeten the deal.

      Item Condition: Mint Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Roselands State: New South Wales Payment Method: PayPal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Upgrading Further information:
      Purchased 1 year ago from Addicted to Audio. 1st and only owner. Best way to describe the condition is I can pack it back up in the original box and sell it as brand new, it's that perfect. The photos can be deceiving but it's just the dust that makes it appear as dirty or with marks. It has been paired with a Schiit Yggdrasil DAC. At this price point, I am yet to find a better headphone amplifier, and believe me, I've tried lots of them. It comes with all the original paperwork, the original box and the original power cable which is still brand new (I used another power cable). This is an incredible headphone amplifier and I can assure you, you will not be disappointed, not to mention that this amp is very rarely listed privately and for a good price. I am open to reasonable offers but please, no low balls. If any more information is required please send me a message, I usually respond very quickly. Thank you.
