I can't believe this is still available. I am sure that it will be sold by the end of the Day. People, this Amplifier is incredible, it's that good.

Awesome amp'. True power is about 90 watt RMS into 8ohms, 120RMS into 4ohms - that's class-B at that point of course.

It's not that heavy 🙄

You should try lugging one of it's bigger brothers around.

I transported a X250.5 on the front seat of my Falcon wagon over 2000kms.

I had a 1.9m tall Ambience 1800 References in the back of the wagon at the same time.

Sadly it won't have quite the ooph @ooogh needs.  He really liked my XA 30.5, but his Ambiences would ideally like a bit more power.  An X 150 (.5 or .8) could be the go.

We did a comparison at a Queensland Audio Club meeting at my place last December between powering my Ambience 1800 References with the XA 30.8 (Nelson Pass's personal recommendation for the Ambiences) and my X 250.5.

Sadly the XA 30.8 didn't have the grunt the Ambience's need.

He needs to change his speakers then! 😉

I borrowed a 30.5 and while it sounded fantastic, was a tiny bit underpowered for my 86dB Hulgichs. 

 

Tried a 30.8 and I was totally in love with it, no problem driving to  pretty high volume levels. 

Totally  different amplifier, lot heavier construction and meatier sound!

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Birkdale State: QLD Payment Method: Cash on pickup, PayPal, EFT Reason for selling: NLR I bought this from a fellow SNA member a little while back. I found that the combination of my tube DAC and this buffer was a tad to much. I then modified it to also be a headphone amp. I was surprised how good it sounded, but having a souped up Bottlehead Crack, I found I wasn’t getting much time on this. If you are looking to add that bit of tube warmth and liquid mids to your system, this will work wonders for you and the addition of the headphone output is the cream on the cake. As usual Eric has used quality parts throughout this build and his point to point circuits are of an excellent standard.
       
      Unit is supplied with 4 x power tubes and 2 x rectifier tubes, so plenty of rolling to be had. Unit has a switch on the front to set it up for 6as7 or 5998 tubes.
       
      Please note the buffer will only driver high impedance headphones and doesn’t have a volume control, I was using my DAC to control the volume.

      Item Condition: Near new – excellent condition 1/10/2020 Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Teneriffe State: QLD Payment Method: Paypal Cash Reason for selling: Too many headphones KENNERTON THRIDI MAPLEWOOD LIMITED EDITION Planar Magnetic Headphones near new in original packaging with receipt and warranty card. Kennerton are a boutique high end audio company out of Russia. 
       
      Free shipping AUS
       
      The Thridis can be the most focused, intimate headphone in your line-up, in the absence of Focal Utopias. You get the idea. The reason Kennertons have an edge over Focal, is the tonal saturation and density. The Kennertons saturate the midrange with plenty of life and colour. Within the intimacy of its soundstage lies a very, very expressive performance. Music comes across with a zing and a zeal about it, the way it gets propelled at your ear. It's not something that any headphone, bar something like the Verite, can easily match. Consider it a great match with chamber piano, small vocals, and small jazz.

      Driver Planar Magnetic
      Driver Unit 80 mm
      Frequency Response 15-50000 Hz
      Sensitivity 104 dB
      Impedance 42 Ohm
      Cord length 2 m detachable copper cable (6.3 mm)

      Our drivers are solely designed and produced in Russia, which involves a facility that also work for the aerospace and military industries, which ensures the highest quality and durability of our headphones.
      A new 80mm planar-magnetic driver, with every aspect of this technology being implemented, such as phase coherence, flat impedance and a low-mass diaphragm.
      Multi-layer 10µm polyimide film diaphragm, tested to have the highest reliability and longevity in the most extreme environmental conditions.
      FEM-Optimized Magnet System with 10 neodymium magnets arranged in symmetric push-pull configuration.
      Unique semicircular bar magnets.
      A semicircular form therefore has many advantages over the ordinary rectangular shaped bar magnets: It gives a more uniform magnetic field, greatly reduces internal resonances and produces an optimal sound.
      Our driver allows greater sensitivity, thanks to its powerful magnets and low-mass diaphragm. It can therefore be easily driven by portable devices.
      We aim for reliability and durability, and so used simple but functional construction.
      Aerospace grade aluminum and steel used.
      Quality wooden earcup.
      Complete absence of any plastic parts.
