Selling a beautiful Decware SE34I.5 integrated amp (“Rachel” according to the branding). This was built in February 2016, so has all the latest build-ins plus upgrades (see below). Inputs are a pair of 6N1P, outputs are EL34. Stock tubes and power cord will be included. Entire caboodle will be well protected and double boxed for shipment. Of course, local pick up in the Washington D.C. area is welcome.
This amp sounds phenomenal and is in mint shape - looks new. The imaging is superb - when listening to acoustic jazz, you can almost see a bassist’s fingers traveling the neck. I’m only selling because I have a Decware Mini Torii that sounds as good, is smaller and is easier to tweek sound-wise (i.e., more tubes to roll and a tone adjustment switch I can flip in case I’m listening to some muddy-sounding records).
This amp has the following upgrades ($ is for how much originally charged by the OEM):
Inputs: Two pair - $150
Outputs: Variable RCA Outputs - $100
Signal Capacitors: Jupiter Beeswax II - $200
Volume Control: Stepped Attenuator - $150
Custom wood base made of Black Acacia tonewood - $200.( The custom base actually makes this Rachel slightly smaller in footprint then normal: 12 1/4" deep x 15 3/4" wide.)
Looking for $1,695 plus actually shipping - 25% off what it would cost new with the upgrades, plus no three-month wait time. Payment via PayPal f&f or add 3%.
