    I have an excellent condition Eddie Current Aficionado, no. 19 with red lamp on power supply. It has stock caps, inputs and outputs. It can power efficient speakers as well. The price includes a pair of NOS RCA 2a3 and WE 396A driver with about 80 hrs on all, amp itself has about 100 on it, lightly used. Also included is a Mullard rectifier of current production. Amp, power supply, umbilical.

    $2800 net to me. US Only.
    Will trade with DNA Stratus with comparable tube compliment + your $100
    Also available are KR 2a3 for $375 with amp or $425 net separately.
    225 hr on the KR

    Ir buy without 2a3 tubes for $2500 net.

    Are you sure this is #19? If so, lol because my AF is marked #19.

    He is selling your Af (parroting an old joke by the funniest dude on SBAF @BillOhio, from a BW2 FS thread)

    Seriously, @Don Miller have you considered changing the stock caps as opposed to selling the Af? This amp can easily be tweaked to get whatever sound you want. That is the double-edged sword of this wonderful amp.

    Edit: Added credit for the joke, sorry Bill.

    I guess the serial numbering system at EC needs an overhaul. We need @zerodeefex to consult on process.

    Good lord. I don't want to know anything about Craig's manufacturing process. I could see production changes being recorded on a napkin.

    someone needs to tell their SO that this Af amp is a Black Friday Deal, and a rare one at that.
    haven't heard KR 2A3 tubes myself.

    a member should buy here to keep 'Af's in the SB'Af' family.

    I can't compare them to other higher end tubes, but Ken Rads are pretty sweet in an Af.

    except Ken Rad NOS is different than KR Audio which are modern constructs.
