iconic amplifiers are rarely seen or offered pre-owned, particularly in their
latest, most advanced iteration. This pair is in near mint condition with less
than 200 hours estimated of use. They have been meticulously maintained and are
inclusive of all current updates.
V8 amplifiers were jointly designed by Scott Frankland, Brian Hartsell and
George Cardas with their objective to build true reference quality amplifiers
capable of driving any speaker load (particularly electrostats and ribbon
speakers) with musical ease, using single-ended, Class-A topology. The amps are
capable of producing 400 watts of visceral power from each amplifier, Their
organic musicality & laid back sonic character belie their awesome power
potential. Their bass impact and performance is stunning and will easily drive
speakers capable of shaking walls with ease, while producing a midrange purity
and top frequencies that are delicate and airy.
their 25+ year history, there have been several iterations of these amps. This
pair are the current iteration, and retailed in 2014 for upwards of $65k /
pair. Scott Frankland advises they are too expensive to keep manufacturing
at that price point. This pair is offered for $40k / pair (actual shipping cost
not included). Due to their weight and size, local pickup is welcomed.
