I have for sale a very high end Jeff Rowland Model 2 amplifier. This is an extremely well built amplifier and it retailed for $5,800 back when it was produced. Everything about this amplifier says “high Quality” even the chassis, heat sinks and top and bottom cover were specially designed for low resonance. This amplifier was also a Stereophile magazines, recommended Class A component for a number of years.
As can be seen in the pictures, the overall condition of the amplifier is very good to excellent. The black machined chassis and top cover are in excellent condition. I also removed the top cover for a picture, so you could see how clean and well built the inside of the amplifier is. The very high quality, traditional Rowland 3/4 inch thick faceplate is in very good condition it does have a very small scratch on the upper left side of the panel and a small scratch towards the middle right side of the faceplate.
The amplifier works and sounds great. I also just replaced the front panel indicator bulb so that should be good for many years to come. In addition, I have a copy of the owners manual that I will include with the amplifier.
I used the amplifier with some Thiel CS- 3.6 speakers which are a difficult inefficient load and the amplifier drove them with ease.
Here are some features of the amplifier from the owners manual….
-True Fully balanced design, with parts tolerances within 0.005
-XLR Balanced input jacks…I will include the original Rowland high quality RCA adapters that can be seen
installed on the amplifier in the pictures.
-User-selectable overall gain 26 or 32 db
-User-selectable input impedance.
-All internal signal circuits are totally isolated from the chassis and system ground potentials to provide extreme immunity from RF interference.
-Easy fail safe operation with user-resettable AC circuit breaker on the back panel.
-Low-resonance, structurally integrated chassis of aircraft-grade machined aluminum alloy components.
-75 watts per channel into 8 ohms, 150 watts per channel into 4 ohms
-47 pounds, 75 pounds shipping weight in pelican case.
As can also be seen in the pictures the Rowland amplifier uses a very high quality pelican shipping case to ship their products…the amplifier will be shipped in the case pictured.
Continental USA shipping only, No International sales, Shipping will be $55 fully insured. I will absorb the Paypal fee.
