Up for sale are a pair of Audio Mirror 45 watt per channel SET amps. These are the latest and greatest from the mind of Vlad Bazelkov who hand builds these in Houston, Texas. These 45 watt SET amps will drive any speaker with 89dB efficiency rating or higher. They did an outstanding job of driving my Merlin VSM Mme’s producing a rich, harmonic and dimensional sonic picture.
These all stainless steel chassis monoblock amps are self biasing and have an internal feature that shuts them down if they are overdriven thus protecting the power tubes and any internal components from self destructing. Furthermore, if a power tube does go bad, the amp shuts itself down and indicates which tube is the culprit by displaying a small red light next to the power tube that has gone bad.
They are outfitted with the best capacitors available on the planet…V cap TfTf’s. Each amp requires two 2.0uF capacitors at an additional cost of $1400. They made a significant improvement in an already outstanding amplifier.
They only have balanced inputs with premium input transformers but I can supply a pair of high quality BAT adaptors if single ended is the way that you want to go.
The amps also come with Furutech premium “pure transmission” high output fuses as well as a pair of NOS Sylvania 6sn7 bad boys for the driver stage and a pair of Sylvania 6sl7 for the input stage.
Power tubes are the venerable 6c33c’s which are used in many of the worlds best amplifiers including Joule Electra, BAT and Lamm. They are inexpensive and easily attained and I will include an additional pair when I ship the amp.
These amps come with NO power cords but do come with premium Furutech gold plated IEC’s.
It really pains me to have to put these superb amps up for sale, but the reason for the sale is that I have gone to a pair of King Sound Prince II’s which are only 83dB efficient so I need a more powerful pair of amps to drive them effectively.
Shipping should be quite reasonable as each amp weighs in at 36#. Vlad has designed a shipping carton that is basically bulletproof unless Fedex or UPS drops it off the Empire State building.
FYI, the Merlins with upgraded MASTER BAM are also going up for sale. If you are interested in a package deal let me know and I will send along pictures and additional information on those speakers.
Will split paypal fees, but shipping is at buyers expense.
