Ultra-rare Michaelson & Austin TVA-10 tube amplifier in very good condition
This was literally bought from an elderly gentleman who is downsizing. He used it infrequently and never drove it more than 45 miles an hour.
Just kidding about that last part!
A small dent in the back. Other than that, it's minty.
The power tubes are almost new with just a few hours on them.
This was designed by Tim de Paravicini after he returned to the UK after his Luxman stint, who is also famous for his EAR Yoshino products. The "Michaelson" is Anthony Michaelson, who went on to start Musical Fidelity. This amp is a cult classic, and mostly unheard of in the US.
The TVA10 is credited as having started the tube revival in the late 1970's. It was acclaimed at the time of it's introduction as a breakthrough in Tube audio design.
