    I purchased this wonderful amp a few months back here on SBAF and would like to pass it along here. @YMO was a great seller, and I'm listing everything with the same pricing structure. All of the stock tubes are included, along with the backups that came in the first sale. I've also got some upgraded NOS tubes available that I'm willing to include at a discount. I'm only selling this because I just picked up a DNA Stratus.

    This is a fantastic sounding amp that played perfectly quiet in my system. It's in excellent condition with normal signs of wear. The only possible functional issue is that the XLR jack is a little tight. I found it much easier to use the single ended output, and the sound quality was the same. Updated photos below. Please feel free to post here or send me a message with any questions. Thanks for looking.

    $1745 + Shipping/Insurance & Paypal (3%) - Friends

    Tempted, too.

    By the way, if I read correctly, do you sell the amp without any more inclusion at the same price you bought? If you're planning to donate certain portion to the community, that's alternatively very fine without additional discount. But better describing it in the post explicitly.

    This was the pricing structure on the original post, and I'm offering the exact same price back to the community.

    Price:
    $1745 + Shipping/Insurance & Paypal (3%) - Friends
    $1775 + Shipping/Insurance & Paypal (3%) - High-Level Contributors


    Obviously I paid the higher amount as a contributor, but I'd be happy to honor the lower price for friends. I also listed some additional tubes in case someone would like to add them to the purchase. If my original post was confusing, I apologize.

    I see. Thanks for the clarification. Respect your choice. Blame my inner accountant.

    Pending sale on the amp... Might be pending for a day or two, so I'll keep this thread updated. Thanks for the interest.
