Ear 859, the classic 13 watt SET by Tim de Paravicini for local sale only - Pick up in New York City. Has upgrades, Black Gates etc. (photos upon request) and premium tubes: 7JD8's are NOS Telefunken, the EL509's are NOS Sylvania (made in Great Britain). I will include some extra EL509's. This amp is really well preserved, absolutely beautiful to look at, and simply wonderful sounding. The imaging on this 859 is astounding - placements of images are clear and well focussed. The amp is fast and energetic, an amazing 13 watts.
I had the amp checked by well known tech Ben Jacoby (of High End Audio Repair) a few weeks ago, to make sure all is well and running at full power. I will include a copy of the invoice/evaluation for verification, if desired. Please note that it is set up to use the 4 ohm tap on transformers (although the speaker terminals are marked 8 ohms). You can change to 8 ohms if you want; I preferred the 4 ohm tap.
Please add 3% for Paypal. Will possibly accept cash upon pickup - but you must email me first for confirmation.
