Please do some research on the forums regarding this phenomenal 845 integrated amp. This thing is a beast and weighs well over 100 lbs with a ton of iron. It's a really fast and ballsy amp with a ton of musical PRAT and dynamics, but still has that SET romance laying underneath. Compared to my Thoress 845 monoblocks (at 2.5x the cost new), this had an even stronger attack, just as wide of a soundstage, with only just the smallest bit less soundstage front-to-back. Really, really hard to distinguish against monoblocks that cost almost $15k. With various 845 tube compliments, you can completely hear the differences in the tubes selected--perfect for tuning to your liking and tuning to the rest of your system. I have to imagine this amp would easily drive all but the most difficult speakers to drive with it's 18wpc. For the money, especially used, this is a steal for such a strong 845 amp. I'm listing this amp as LOCAL PICKUP ONLY IN COLUMBUS OHIO. With the right buyer I will consider driving it up to two hours away from me, which will get it to most parts of Ohio if you want to make the other part of the drive from where you are. I will consider driving it further for some compensation.
If you insist on my shipping it, then I'm going to ask the buyer to pay for a full vacu-pack by Fedex for both the tubes and the amp, which from previous experience will cost somewhere between $200-$300. I will charge you exactly what Fedex charges me to vacu-pack and ship to your address, plus adequate insurance of your choice.
I'm conservatively rating this as a 8, but I suspect when you get it you will easily think it's a 9 and sounds like a 10. I don't know the age as these have been produced for a little while, but this is the current model as far as I can tell.
I have the original box for the amp. I also have the Melody-branded 845s that shipped with it. They sound great, but I have no way to know how many hours are on them. I also have a phenomenal set of Elrog 845s which I bought new for close to $2K for the pair. I suspect I have 100 hours on them. I will include them for an additional $1K if interested.
Buyer pays 3% for paypal.
These don't come along often...it's a steal of an amp at this price.
