    I’ve recently made some changes for the sake of synergy and I’m ready part with my much loved EC AF. I’ve used this amp happily for both headphones and high efficiency speakers.

    I purchased this amp in May of 2017. I’m the original owner. It was part of the first run of amps with copper hammertone finish and has the original retro red power indicator bulb on the power supply. All caps and internal parts are stock. Amp will ship in all original packaging.

    In November of 2019, I sent it in to EC to have the feedback mod performed. To run with no feedback, flip the switch on the front down. For feedback, flip the switch up. I would vary this depending on recording/transducers. Note: the feedback uses the tertiary winding on the transformers, so my amp no longer has the SE line outs on the back.

    Condition is excellent. Let’s call it a 9 since it’s not brand new, but it’s been babied and comes from a smoke-free house.

    See below for more photos.

    PRICE

    Friends: $2100 + shipping to CONUS and insurance

    Everyone else: $2750 + shipping to CONUS and insurance

    Will ship from NYC via UPS or FedEx insured only. You will pay for shipping. I can get a price once we move forward with a purchase. It’s probably in the neighborhood of $200.

    (I will pay PayPal fees)

    Included with purchase:
    • Amp
    • Power supply
    • “Good” tube bundle (see below for details and more tube bundles)
    • Power cable
    • 1 pair NL2FX SpeakOn connectors

    TUBE BUNDLES

    Buying and sourcing tubes can be annoying, so I’ve put together some tube packages for you. If you buy any of these, I will pack and ship these separately from the amp.

    I will also throw in a pair of NL2FX SpeakOn connectors. You need to terminate your speaker wires with these to connect them to the AF. Added to "included" list above.

    If I did not own already two EC Af for my two places, I'd be tempted, great deal! Friends, what better way to start 2021?

    Amp sold to @dncnexus. I’ll make a separate post for the remaining tubes in case anyone is interested.

    @shotgunshane and @jexby please close. Thanks very much.
