Decware Super Zen Triode, Anniversary Mod & NOS tubes [Expired]


no longer for sale

For sale is my mint condition Decware Select Zen Triode Amplifier (SE84UF02) upgraded with the Anniversary Mod.  I bought the amplifier January 2018 and had the Anniversary Mod performed November 2018.  It is in excellent condition in all regards.

This is an outstanding 2 watt SET amplifier well deserving of the unanimous praise it receives in the press and forums.  Mine has the contemporary walnut base and 2 RCA inputs, plus optional stepped attenuator, cryo-treated beeswax caps, and Anniversary beeswax bypass modification.  See the Decware website for more details.

The original cost of the amplifier was $1,463 and the Anniversary modification was $260 for a total of $1,723. 

I also have a several NOS alternate tubes that I used for much of my listening: (2) 6N15N-EB, (2) 6N14N-EB and (2) EL-84 STR power tubes, (1) 6H5N and (1) E88CC/6922 driver tubes, and (1) 80 Globe rectifier.  My cost for these 9 tubes was $245.   

I will sell the amplifier, stock tubes and NOS tubes for $1,250 including Paypal and US shipping.  Decware’s current build backlog is 3-4 months so you’ll save months of wait time. I will provide invoices with the amplifier.

From the Decware website: “This is the highly tweaked version of our original Zen Triode amplifier, originally released in 1998. Since that time it has developed an almost cult following among serious audiophiles.  If you've done your homework, you already know the Zen Triode IS the best value in 2 watt amplifiers anywhere. It is preferred over directly heated triodes for having more speed, better micro detail, better bass, and most of all better neutrality.  It's sound stage and 3D imaging are as good as either one can get.  It sets a benchmark that's immune to price points and gold plating. “

From the “Glow in the Dark” website: “In short, this is the number one current production amplifier I would recommend without reservation to anyone interested in tube audio.”  The are many other glowing reviews.

I’m reluctantly selling after downsizing my system to fit in a new condo.  I recently sold my Omega speakers which were a great match and am now left with only my LS3/5A monitors.  Surprisingly, the Decware sounds really good with the 84db Rogers for nighttime listening, but 2 watts isn’t enough for higher volumes with these low-efficiency speakers.
