Hello. I have here the latest model of the Dared VP-20s with the gold circuit board tracers. I have removed and bypassed the front volume controls, replaced the coupling caps with AudioCaps, replaced the smaller electrolytic caps with Nichicon KZ Muse and replaced the front panels with solid oak that is stained and varnished. The sound is pure high end vacuum tube amp. The upgrades I did made these amps a lot quicker in the transients with much more detail.
I’m running them with a pair of Silverline SR11s that are 87db efficient and it drives them nicely. Great bass, too! They sound like a lot more than 18 WPC.
The amps come with the separate power supply unit, original box and packing, four JJ 6L6 power tubes, two JJ gold pin 12AU7s and a pair of Svetlana 12AX7s. I did a lot of tube rolling and this combo sounds the best to me. They have very good control with awesome imaging.
Who am I? I'm a 39 year old Audio Visual repair person that's been in the industry since I was able to drive. I do quality work so no worries on craftsmanship.
All the original parts will come with it (volume pots, knobs and original wood front panels, coupling caps).
My price includes PayPal fees. A USPS Postal Money Order is also accepted. Shipping is FedEx Ground and should be $25 to $35. I can ship within 24 hours in most cases.
Let me know if you have any questions.
