Price reduction!! Genuine offer ?

 

Further information: Sparingly used beautifully paired Pre / Power combo from Accuphase -  Pre C-2850 with Class A Power Amp A48, just an year old with original packing carton, cables, remote and manuals. Not a single blemish - or scratch - probably 250 - 300 Hrs is what I might have used due to the nature of my job.  Will rate it as 9/10 as they are out of their original box's - but kept safe on audio rack in centrally airconditioned room. Purchased whilst I was posted overseas and hence 220V which should not have any issues whatsoever on performance, longevity or safety of these much sought after units.

Cool !!........ see good taste exists (Y) 

 

Your friend would benefit from moving away from the DC37 DAC and getting something better....and as for the power supply - using P12 or p15 from PS Audio which is a "re-generator" will be 100% better over what he is using now.....but if he is a diehard Accu fan - nothing would make him move away from these combo and units !

 

Thanks !

Thanks.. Surely pass it on.

Accuphase PS is not regenerator?

no - power supply from Accu is NOT a regenerator. I have used couple of PS units - these are basically conditioner / stabilizers that applies "filters".  It just kills the sound - although I must state that's just my opinion.  To my knowledge only PS Audio has the AC-DC- and AC regeneration technology employed in their "regenerators" and thereby generating a perfect "sinewave" - that almost everyone confirms have provided audible improvement.  The DC37 is long over due for replacement by Accuphase (its a 5 year old model) and with the C2850 / C3850 go for DC950 to match - or look outside - so many high end DAC's are indeed available. Happy to discuss as PM rather that hijacking my own post. :)

Make no mistake - I have owned psAudio P10 and it was completely blown away by Accuphase PS. Accuphase Is not a conditioner - it’s more complex than a simple  power regenerator and unlike PSAudio , it uses an analog sine wave as the reference. PS Audio uses a digital signal as its reference and digital sine waves are not as smooth as pure analog

I got the C-2850 few years back...never felt the need to change since. Great pre with variable gain settings and phase switch. Some of the best 'tone' going around!!...IMO. PRAT is off the scale when matched with right power and Speaker.

 

Ironically, I moved from TOTL tube set-ups to Solid state when I discovered Accuphase. Tried/listened to many a different solid state set-ups prior to that

      Item Condition: 8/10 Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: NORTH MELBOURNE State: VIC Payment Method: EFT or Cash on pick-up preferred Reason for selling: Upgraded Further information:
       
      I bought these amps off the original owner approximately two years ago. I thought they were a revelation compared to what I was using before Prima Luna. And I was also able to see why a fairly modestly priced pair of amps would get such a high recommendation in the Stereophile Recommended components reviews.
       
      In fact these were an upgrade on a Stereo Prologue Premium I was running (and sold when I bought these). One major difference from the upgrade was that instead of running KT88s and then trying KT120s and KT150s on the stereo amp to get enough power, I was able to run these on EL34 tubes and get both a more powerful, yet sweeter sound at the same time (although you can run KTs if you prefer).
       
      I did roll out the original Prima Luna EL34s and replace them with 2 lots of 4 Platinum Matched Tung-Sol tubes which (to my ears) gave an even better sound - the original tubes are provided as well, of course. I don't have a tube tester but I have had no problem with them and I'm guessing they have probably run about 1,000 hours.
       
      In terms of the smaller 12AU7 tubes, I am running Genalex Gold Lion ECC83s, again, to my ears, a significant upgrade on the original tubes.
       
      I replaced these about 6 months ago with a much higher up the tree Pass Labs XA30.8 Class A amp which also offers a sweet, tube-like sound. In that regard it is not that much different, but being solid-state is a possibly a fraction more balanced throughout the whole spectrum (swapping over was definitely not economically rational).
       
      One final note. The previous owner added the mirrors that sit behind the tubes as a "blingy" upgrade. It is not really my style to change away from original, but actually it doesn't look too bad, and so I never took them off - but I think you could easily do so if you prefer.
       
      In terms of a demo, I have one restriction which is that the only pair of speakers I have in the house is an Active pair, meaning I can't easily demonstrate these. If you can bring your own speakers, I can hook them up so you can listen to them in situ. 
         
      With the equivalent new pair costing $8k, I think these are a great way to get into tubes in a hassle-free way, with the auto-biasing etc making these no harder to run than solid state amps.
