For your consideration is a Rogers EHF-100 MK2 integrated tube amp. It began its life as a MK1 and was upgraded at the factory to the MK2. This is a $1500 upgrade. This thing is built like a tank and puts out a very robust 65w of tube goodness. Transferable lifetime warranty. I sent this unit back to the factory about a year ago and the team gave it a clean bill of health except for two tubes (which have been replaced and included with the sale - Genalex Gold Lion 12AX7). Unit is in excellent condition with no noticeable scratches. There are a few light swirl marks which are very hard to see. I would rate this a 9, but chose 8 to be safe. Unit works perfectly and has since I've owned it.
Included Tubes: Current Listening tubes: 2 Rogers Branded Genalex Gold Lion KT88 2 Genalex Gold Lion KT88 2 Valvo EF86 2 Genalex Gold Lion 12ax7

Here's a bit from the Absolute Sound Review...
The Rogers EHF-100 Mk2 integrated amplifier was a harmonically rich, dynamically powerful amplifier that was satisfying to listen to over long periods. With a smoothly extended high end, a detailed, realistic midrange, and tight bass, it should have enough power to drive a wide variety of speakers. Its automated bias setting eliminates one of the chief objections to tube amplifiers, assuring the amplifier will deliver peak performance for the life of the tubes with no effort from the owner.
The EHF-100 Mk2’s unmatched lifetime warranty tells us that Rogers doesn’t expect the amplifier will ever cause the original owner or second owner any problems, so except for normal tube wear, you shouldn’t have any trouble with the amplifier, something I can’t say about any other amp I’ve used. And the tubes are current production models, so replacements should be easily obtainable at moderate cost—and easy to access when you do need to replace them. (A recommended source for replacement tubes is listed in the user manual, and the 12AX7s and KT88s are often available at local guitar stores.) The optional power cord and remote control were solidly constructed and contributed to the amplifier’s performance.
If you’ve been tempted by tube amplifiers but aren’t sure you want the hassles that come with many of them, the Rogers EHF-100 Mk2 is about as easy to maintain as a tube amplifier can be, and offers the typical sonic advantages a tube amp provides with the best warranty in the industry. Highly recommended.
