SOLD: FS: NuForce Ref 9 V3 mono block amplifiers - fully TDSS upgraded


Recommended Posts

Item Condition: functionally excellent, cosmetically good
Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost.
Suburb or Town: Sydney Inner West
State: New South Wales
Payment Method: PayPal (+3.5%)/PayPal friend, Cash on pick-up
Reason for selling: NLR

For sale are two NuForce Ref9 V3 monoblock amplifiers with custom TDSS internal upgrades (cabling, noise reduction and new PSUs). Cosmetically good and functionally excellent condition.

I am the second owner of these and purchased them from the original owner in Europe 5 years ago. They were purchased as Ref9 V2 with upgraded (WBT) binding posts, hence the V2 print on the faceplates. I brought them to AU and had them upgraded by Bob Smith at TDSS in the US in 2017.

Invoices for the upgrades are shown with the photos (personal details blacked/greyed out) and I will send the uncensored PDF invoices for the work to the buyer.

Boards were upgraded to V3 boards, and a full TDSS level 3 upgrade done to both monoblocks. Additional details on the link below:

Highly rated audiophile monoblocks with lots of grunt to drive even difficult speakers loads with many favourable reviews online. Taken to yet another level with the upgrades performed by Bob Smith at TDSS. Original RRP on these was around $3,000 US, plus just under $2k US for the upgrades (not including shipping to/from US).

These are incredible amplifiers for the money and it took me a long time to decide to part with these (and the matching P9 preamp which I will be listing shortly). I am just simply not using them at the moment as I have no dedicated listening room anymore and have gone to a Lyngdorf all in one solution including room correction which gives better results in my untreated and very open living area.

Local pick-up is given preference, but as I have the original packaging I can post at agreed cost if required.

Happy to negotiate a deal if someone wants to take these together with the matching NuForce P9 Preamp that I am also listing – shoot me a PM.

      From the collection of a well known Sydney audiophile. These were purchased new by the owner from WAR Audio & returned for every upgrade & improvement available. Used on Wilson WP8 exclusively.
       
      Highly rated Audiophile monoblocks. Amazingly powerful & offer high end sound at a fraction of the size & cost of comparable linear amplifiers.
      Many reviews online - perfect match for Maggie’s especially, or so I’ve been told.
      Will ship Worldwide with packing & insurance at buyers cost.

      Item: NuForce Ref 9 Ver 3 SE Power Amps
      Location: Belgrave, Melbourne
      Price: $2,000
      Item Condition: As New
      Reason for selling: NLR due to upgrade
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
       
      Extra Info:
      I purchased these power amplifiers one year ago from a dealer in N.SW. who had closed up his business.
      I did not get to use them until July of this year due to a home renovation and overseas travel.
      It is recommended that they are run in for 70 hours and that is all the use that they have had.
      They are for all intents and purposes brand new.
      They sound fabulous and I believe they are a bargain at this price.
      Audition at my home in Belgrave is welcome.
      I am happy to ship at purchasers expense.
      The cost would be in the region of $140.00, or less, depending on location, including insurance.
       
      Specifications:
      Configuration: Mono Input: RCA and true balance XLR
       
      Peak Power (20 msec hold time):
      8ohm 325W
      4ohm 650W
      2ohm 1300W

      RMS Power:
      8ohm 175W
      4ohm 335W
      2ohm 335W
