no longer for sale

First owner, almost new, and I really hate to sell this, but I am downsizing and have no room for it. It looks and sounds beautiful.
From Stereophile: Nelson Pass is a chi master because, like me, he's a member of all audio tribes. "There is no such thing as a perfect amplifier," he believes. "All audiophiles and their associated equipment have specific needs, but in each case there is such a thing as a best amplifier—the one that makes you happy." The First Watt J2 is, in my view, a best amplifier: Every day, it made me and my favorite loudspeakers extremely happy. Highly recommended.
