    I have recently purchased a TU-8800 amp from our friend @tommytakis . As a result, I will likely be letting go of my Pendant soon. I do wish to A/B them just to get a sense of what the Elekit does better, but I don't see myself holding onto the Pendant, especially since the Elekit can power speakers and has two different connection modes which will give it improved versatility. Since I'm not quite ready to sell this yet (though perhaps I will if someone shows great need!), I'm posting this simply as an interest check. Consider this your chance to express interest and ask questions about the amp if you're interested in purchasing - I'll likely sell sometime early next week, and update the listing accordingly.

    This is the OG, but it has been upgraded to Jupiter Copper Foil and Wax caps, so should sound the same as the SE version. This upgrade cost $300. I bought the amp new three and a half months ago or so.

    It will come with the following tubes, in addition to the stock JJ tubes:

    -Mullard 12AT7 made in 1959
    -New Production Tung-Sol 7189/EL84
    -Mullard early 1960s EZ81 Rectifier
    -Siemens EZ81 Rectifier
    -Genalex Gold Lion 12AU7 from Upscale Audio
    -RCA Clear Top 12AU7

    I plan to price somewhere around 1625 with all the tubes included for friends and known contributors. Others will have to pay another $100 for the tubes, or buy without them.
