    Since I am now exclusively into HE-6 phones on speaker amps, I am selling a wonderful Cavalli Liquid Glass amplifier with excellent aesthetics and in perfect operational condition. Item ships with two matched audiophile grade pairs of Baldwin branded Raytheon 6SN7GTB tubes from 1959. Also included are a power cord and a set of Blue Jeans interconnects. Price is $2,250 including lower 48 US ground shipping with insurance.

    ETA: I neglected to mention that I have two Cavalli dust covers for this amp. One is black with white logo and the other is white with black logo, so, depending on your mood or decor you have both options.

    I was eyeballing balanced tube amps earlier this week an stumbled across this beauty! Love that it's spec'd for 6sn7s... strong chance I'll wind up with this bad boi as my end game some day... need to have some future use for my growing 6sn7 collection! GLWS!

    It's not balanced* by the way. It's a pure single ended amp, but Alex added a 4 pin XLR out since many of us already had cables ready for it and preferred it to the TRS connector. Still mine was easily my favorite headphone amp while I had it.

    *Not that it matters.

    True that. It is thoroughly single-ended. IMO it stands as proof of the irrelevance of all that. My Yggy has balanced and SE outputs. I have had both kinds of amps. Maybe I just haven't hooked up the right balanced amp, however, I have never had an amp that I enjoyed more for its musical nature than the LG. If I did find one I liked better, someone would have to prove to me that it was better because it was balanced.

    Item is "SPF" with a 2-3 week "P". So if it presents no problems with market etiquette, I'd like to keep the ad up in case anyone wants to queue up for it.

    Ahh doesn't matter, good design is worth while regardless of it's SE or balanced. I have both kinda of cables as my hybrid tube now is SE and only my solid state is balanced, and frankly my balanced solid state doesn't sound really as good as the SE on my Hybrid Tube... with the exception of my HE 4 which really needs the power of the balanced solid state

    The LG is back on the market. If no interest here in a few days I will move it to a more (ahem) populated site. I'd rather see it in the SBAF family. If I have my chain of possession right @Greed used to own it. I sent it back to Cavalli for a new volume pot and it is 100%. Still $2,250 shipped, which is a bit of a loss.

    @brencho, this is an incredible amp with the Code-X, possibly the best I've heard it. Killer amp, killer price, just need some Mullard CV-181, and you are golden. GLWS
