JOLIDA 302B INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER - MODIFIED WITH MANY UPGRADES!
Well regarded (and reviewed) 50 wpc integrated tube amplifier lightly used in a second sytem. I purchased this amp new appox. 7 years ago and had it substantially modifed by Mitch Singerman. Mitch is A well know L.A. based audio technician and one of his specialties is upgrading Jolida products. The upgrade resulted in much better dynamics and resolution without changing the very enjoyable sonic qualities of the amp.
Upgrades involved swapping out all important stock caps and resistors with much higher qualitly parts as well as replacing stock feet with brass spikes, damping bottom plate and using Herbies Tube Dampers on both input and output tubes. I also upgraded EL-34 tubes to Svetlana Winged "C"'s. Current tubes have approx. 1,000 hours on them so still have plenty of life. Amp is rated 8/10 for age only, it is in excellent operating and cosmetic condition with no marks.
Stock parts removed and replaced
I invested over $1600 in the amp, sell for $850.
Note: Amp does not come with a stock power cord. I used a Nordost Vishnu which worked great. This cord is not included but is available at extra cost (plse inquire if interested).
Herbies Tube Dampers for both input and output tubes ($150 value)
I am selling my complete second system which also includes Meadowlark Swallow speakers, Music Hall CD.25.2 CDP, Audio Prism Power Foundation III conditioner and Nordost Baldur and Vishnu cables. I will be posting ads for all these in the coming days.
Upgraded brass spiked feet with footers (all included)
