Vinni Rossi’s Red Wine Audio: Signature 30.2 HIGH CURRENT, Dual BATTERY POWERED INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER for dead quiet, black backgrounds.
No need for fancy outlets or extra power conditioners with this.
Started its life as a Signature 30, but was upgraded by Vinni Rossi to the 30.2. I purchased it used directly from him at Red Wine Audio. I had him change the RCA output to a second input (+$150) controlled by the smaller of the two toggle switches. So now it’s a more flexible two input integrated amplifier. I’m sure it would be possible to switch it back without any fuss.
Google the amp as there’s a great reviews out there from 6Moons (http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/redwine8/302.html) and others.
As a fan of single ended 300B amps, I was very happy with this for many years (I’ve owned it since 2011). One thing this does, in large part because of its two high-current battery opperation, much better than absolutely ANY other amp I’ve ever owned, is play with incredibly black, dead quite backgrounds. It quite remarkable, to be honest.
Alas, I finally got my 300B mono blacks repaired to my liking and something has to give. I know I will regret it at some point. But I simply don’t have the resources to keep both.
New I believe these sold for around $1,500-$1,600. I paid $1040 used in 2011 from Vinni with the 30.2 upgrade, RCA input and toggle.
FYI, I will also be listing Vinni’s Red Wine Audio Clari-T amp with Auricap input caps and DACT CT2 stepped attenuator volume control. While much smaller, it is also an incredibly lovely amp in and of itself. The Auricaps sound remarkable! Great for small rooms, computer systems or efficient speakers. I’m still not sure what I’m going to ask yet...and have yet to take any pics of it. But keep an eye out for it...or send reasonable offers.
Feel free to send along any and all questions.
I much prefer Zelle Pay as it’s fast, free AND SAFE, as it’s associated with many major banks (including mine, Chase [decidedly NOT an endorsement]). I will take Paypal, but would prefer to avoid it if at all possible. Fees would largely have to be assumed by the buyer.
But I strongly encourage you to look into Zelle so YOU can avoid Paypal’s 2.9% fees.
I am open to international sales, but inquire first to square away shipping and payment options.
I WILL NOT PROFIT FROM SHIPPING CHARGES, NOR WILL I TAKE A LOSS ON THEM. Please inquire as to the actual shipping, with the required insurance, rates.
THE ABSOLUTELY ONLY TRADES I WOULD CONSIDER WOULD BE FOR 300B friendly speakers, like Tekton.
And, finally, I AM OPEN TO FREE LOCAL PICK-UP, or even meeting half-way locally depending on the sale price. I will only meet in a public location such as a video filmed parking lot or designated police location meant for such transactions.
