    Currently in the process of sizing down a good portion of my gear and needed a small nudge to get the ball rolling.


    First is a pair of Super 3 HO monitors from Omega speakers, info and specs can be found here:

    https://omegaloudspeakers.com/colle...per-3-high-output-monitor?variant=34755858700

    This is the high output model with custom wide baffles and the extra bottom driver cut off at 200hz, this helps with lower frequency reproduction and separation. They are full range, high efficient speakers meant to be driven by low power tube amps but also sound great higher powered amps. At ~97 db efficiency, I was able to drive these fine with various 45 SETs, but in bigger rooms it might benefit from a little more juice (2a3, 300b ect.).

    They have about 200 hours of use and are in great condition except for some very slight paint fraying on the rear of one speaker (see pics). IMO, it's barely noticeable in person and looks much worse in pics. One of the drivers failed very early on but Louis from Omega was kind enough to send me a new matching pair and so the top drivers on BOTH cabinets have been replaced.

    Price is firm and $625 net to me.

    **Edit** boxes found!

    Local pickup is still preferred in DC/MD but I'm also willing to ship at buyers expense.

    Next is a pair of 45 SET monoblocks made by Alan Eaton. They use vintage Tamura power\output transformers that are OoP and in limited supply. He usually auctions them on ebay with bids sometimes reaching absurdly high prices. He normally sells through the handle "eclectic_electrics" but hasn't listed one for a while. These were supposed to be used for a DIY project but I ultimately decided to go another route. The stock tubes that came with the amp were kinda shit...so I've replaced them with:

    2x Silvania 6sn7 "bad boys" (2 plate)
    2x 45 RCA globes shown in the picture
    2x Tung Sol 6ax5 rectifier

    I have a pretty large stock of 45s and 6ax5 so if you need extras I may be able to work something out for a very fair price.


    https://www.ebay.com/sch/eclectic_electrics/m.html?_trkparms=folent:eclectic_electrics|folenttp:1&rt=nc

    Power output is about 1.5 W \ channel so very high efficient speakers are recommended. I've also used these with various headphones (using a resistor box adapter), and found the pairing with Focal headphones to be exceptionally good (especially the Utopias). PM me if you'd like more detailed impressions.

    Do note that the filament heaters on this amp use AC so there is potential for hum if used with certain (usually high efficiency) headphones. That being said, they have adjustable hum pots on the rear to mitigate this, but I've noticed that some output tubes cause more hum than others.

    Price is $1100 firm, net to me, and includes all the tubes mentioned above. Packing these is chore but I may consider shipping if there no bites in a couple weeks. For now it's local pickup only in the DMV (DC, MD, VA).

    Finally I'm selling my Eddie Current Aficionado. I don't I need to pitch this one. Non feedback version with Audyn caps, amp is in excellent condition both physically and functionally. P̶r̶i̶c̶e̶ i̶s̶ $̶2̶0̶5̶0̶ n̶e̶t̶ **Edit** SOLD and includes the following extras:

    2x RCA 2a3
    1x NOS mullard 5ar4 rectifier
    1x Western Electric 396A
    2x 12ft Belden speakon to Banana plug speaker cables (Custom made by Blue Jeans cable)
    1x 10 guage heave duty power cord

    *edit: Boxes found. Will now ship at buyers expense with full insurance. Comes in 2 separate boxes (main chassis, and power supply). Local pick up in the DMV is still available and preferred.

    I've sold here before but here's my feedback on Headfi for the more skittish folk:

    F̶r̶i̶e̶n̶d̶s̶ a̶n̶d̶ C̶o̶n̶t̶r̶i̶b̶u̶t̶e̶r̶s̶ o̶n̶l̶y̶ for now. **Edit: Open to everyone now. PM me with with any questions.

    GLWS. I have a pair of Omega 3 XRS with a matching Omega sub and really enjoy the mids. Someone should snap these up, add a sub, and enjoy!

    Hey potential buyers, a no-feedback Af with those tubes is outstanding. I own two no-feedback Af, -fancy caps (different locations) and that specific set of tubes (as well as a few others). Very good price. Go for it!

    I have wide baffle Omega 3s and an Af, and they sound fricking incredible together. Someone get them both! (Or get all three and use the Af as a pre into the monoblocks...)
