Boulder 866 Integrated Amplifier Pristine 1 mo old [Expired]


no longer for sale

1 month new Boulder 866 Class A/B Integrated Amplifier, digital module version. 200/400/700 wpc into 8/4/2 ohm loads. Absolutely perfect. This is my second 866 as I was so enthusiastic after purchasing my first one back in the spring of this year. This was received in August and both were purchased new by me from authorized dealer Soundings in Denver but shipped directly to me from Boulder as they are rarely if ever available in stores. 

I have driven Wilson Sasha 2's to Harbeth 30.2 anniversaries to Devore O96's with the 866. It is absolutely dead quiet and if you think you've heard Boulder before and loved it, this thing is more rich and nuanced. This one probably doesn't have 50 hours of play time. We bought a new home, I loved the first one and wanted to repeat the system in another area of the home. Turns out we just don't listen to music in that room. I compared the 866 with Pass Labs, Gryphon, Luxman, Accuphase and this thing is simply amazing. I am a tube lover and I own amps from Audio Note, Leben and I replaced an Audio Research Ref 5se/Ref75se combo with the 866.  The digital section will blow you away. I have connected my Aqua La Scala Optologic DAC/Linq Streamer to the 866 and switched back and forth and the 866 is on par. It is Roon certified, everything including the volume, power and source selection is controllable by your ipad or iphone. A handheld remote is also included but that's so 90's LOL. 
 
This is the first 866 I've seen come up for sale and I am offering it at $2,000 off from new. This is hands down the bargain amplification product for under $20,000.  Please see my feedback and buy with confidence. Shipping will be a flat $100 via Fedex insured ground to anywhere in the lower 48, Paypal fees will be respectfully passed on to the lucky buyer. A considerable, somewhat insane system upgrade drives this sale, otherwise I would just leave it where it was and use it on occasion but sparingly. Peace all.
