    Hi guys,

    UPDATE:
    After some convos with Craig and Judi my amp is staying in the USA for a few more weeks to attempt to sell.
    Voltage change is $100usd. I still want 8000 aud net to me and I will help cover costs of voltage change and shipping. Judi has advised me that Eddie current will look after the next owner.


    original post.
    I recently sent my studio back to Craig for repairs as something on the heater board failed. I bought this studio new in 2017. It's #19 has a penny and giles pot. Original Tribute transformers. Amp has been loved and was in Excellent condition when I sent it to Craig (bar the heater board being dead).
    It is 240 volt but since it is currently with Craig it could be voltage swapped.

    So. I paid about $10,400 aud for my amp before shipping, duties, taxes and POT upgrade, this was when the price was $7500usd new, the new one he has for sale it not the tribute tranformers and would not include P and G pot or the high quality amperex JEP drivers in mine currently.
    Asking 8000aud or USD equivalent.


    Why am I selling? since covid I have spent far more time using my speakers, and then when my studio needed repair I found I missed it but I was spending more and more time with speakers which has been nice..


    This sale is ONLY for friends (available on HF for more moneys), I am really hesitant to let go of this amp as I have loved every second of owning it. There just comes a point where you have to really think about the opportunity cost of owning something like this.

    let me know if interested. as I said it is in USA right now. otherwise it will be another few hundred in shipping to get it to you.

    Craig has been nothing but helpful in my experience. I could of had my amp serviced locally but wanted him to give it a once over. If this Amp had an audio note badge it would cost 5-10x as much.
    If I wasn't moving to end game active speakers I would never consider selling my Studio T.

    I will try to find out how involved the conversion is. A good quality 220 to 110V transformer (don't cheap out on an autoformer) would be a better idea IMO.

    Alternatively keep it and optimize your speaker rig for it :). Do voxativs + oris horns + dipole woofers or something.
