Further information:

 

On offer today is an amp from the artist Earl Weston from Weston Acoustics. His artisanal amplifiers need no introduction, however if one needs to dive in deeper there are many rave reviews at ones finger tips.  

The Topaz is a true ultralinear  class A amplifier.

It has a sweet musical sound which can be enjoyed for hours with no listerner fatigue at all.

This Topaz now runs KT 77 tubes  which cost north of 300.00 dollars, the rectifier tube was also upgraded. The tubes have ample life and have been used sparingly in a second system. The KT 77 made a huge improvement on the original 6CA7. 

It's said that with valve  amplifiers the transformers hold the magic. The transformers here are painstakingly hand wound by Earl himself. One can hear this as the mids are liqiud smooth, the bass tight, and highs clear. I guess the results speak for themselves. 

I've found this amp to hold its own against some of my other more expensive amps.

A great introduction to the magical world of hand crafted artisanal hifi.

There is a small mark on the rear. 

Please have a look at the photos. 

If any further information is required please send me a message.

Hello,

 

what is the wattage of the amp and what will it drive?

There are many speakers it will drive. It might be more useful to say what you would like it to drive them people might offer useful advice.

Why not have a look at the manufacturers website here>>> Weston Acoustics

 

You'll see this is a Topaz 6CA7.

 

The Topaz 6CA7 is a stereo (two-channel) amplifier rated at over 30 watts per channel into 8 ohms.

 

What will it drive?  That's up to you the potential buyer to work out not the seller. Totally depends what speakers you want to use it with.

 

If your not sure what this tube amp can drive then send a PM to the OP and pick his brains or ask in a separate thread.

 

If this amp is possibly for you then work out what your speakers rating is, if your not sure then I reckon the OP and plenty here can help you but not in the actual FS thread.  

 

It's well priced as you'll see if you go to the above link.

As has been mentioned, this amp is around 30wpc (33 on the paperwork for mine, I think).

 

It's a bit deceptive as to what it will drive, but the gist is that if your speaker's impedance curve keeps between 6 and 10 ohms it will work just fine so long as your preferred listening levels/speaker sensitivity/room size are within what is mathematically possible with 33w.

 

I've been powering Dynaudio Special 40s in a medium small room with no issues, but you maaay want something more efficient if you like your music very, very loud.

      Selling used Empire Ears Odin IEM/earphones which comes with Empire Ears Stormbreaker upgrade cable (the cable itself is worth a lot and that is their stock cable).

      It comes with its original box, IEM case, cleaning tool, FInal Audio type E ear tips (ss, s, m, L and LL size).
       
      It is one of the best IEMs.

      Odin is the Norse God of wisdom, divination, poetry, death and magic. With a flagship 'Trib-brid' design, Empire Ear's Odin aims for God-like performance. The 11 driver design includes 3 different driver types:  2 W9+ subwoofers, an enhance design compared to the previous Empire Ears dynamic driver W9 design with a higher excursion driver that delivers extended sub-bass response and lower distortion. 5 proprietary Balanced Armature drivers and 4 electrostatic EIVC drivers deliver the same ethereal detail and frequency response found in previous designs like the Valkyrie and Wraith.
      The Odin also features an exclusive 'Stormbreaker' hand crafted copper litz cable made in collaboration with PW Audio of Hong Kong and Pentaconn of Japan. Also exclusive to the Odin is the three stage laminated 'Bifrost' faceplate which reveals unique colour transitions at different angles of light.

      Item Condition: Excellent - used once Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Hunters Hill State: NSW Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, cash Reason for selling: Too many lenses Apochromatic (APO) (per Laowa) macro lens. L Mount. 
       
      Manual focus only. 
       
      Very well built metal construction and focuses to a 2:1 magnification ratio... that's not a typo. It will throw double the in focus area onto the sensor. 
       
      Selling as I predominately use a 44x33 system for Macro, am running out of space and need to thin the herd.
