I am selling my personal Hovland Sapphire amplifier. This amp is in perfect working order and almost perfect cosmetic condition. No nicks or scratches but there is one area that is slightly discolored on the top of one of the transformer covers. It does not really distract from the overall beauty of the unit and can probably be taken care of but I am scared to try anything since I don't know enough about metal to risk some type of cleaner to try to fix it. I can send more photos upon request.
Original double box, all packing manuals and accessories are included as are a matched quad of used Electro Harmonix EL34 tubes and JJ Tesla input tubes. They have plenty of life in them but I would recommend NOS tubes to really make this amp shine. i used a combo of Mullards and Telefunkens most recently but have tried a number of combos over the years. I am very sorry to see the amp go but I need to raise some funds and my current setup necessitates an amp with balanced inputs which this unfortunately does not have. You will not be disappointed with this piece.
As this is my personal unit payments will be made directly to me and if you wish to pick it up locally there will be no sales tax charged.
