Amplitrex AT1000 Tube Tester - I Purchased New From Amplitrex - Open Box - Tested - Like New Factory Condition
I paid over $3000. These are hard to get. Was the simplest to utilize yet most capable tester on the market.
Comes in its Original Factory Box.
The Amplitrex AT-1000 is the state of the art computerized tube tester and one of the only tube testers ever produced that is able to work independently and has custom interfaced software for PC operation.
The Amplitrex AT-1000 is a current production tube tester and unlike tube testers built 35 to 55 years ago, the Amplitrex offers laboratory grade testing under microprocessor control and makes it possible to check a tube according to the original manufacturers design specifications.
Even more valuable is the ability to duplicate real world amplifier parameters. With the Amplitrex AT-1000, you will be able to test tubes under the same conditions they are subject to within any amplifier.
BENEFITS OF TESTING TUBES ON THE AMPLITREX AT-1000
- Your tubes are sure to be dependable
- Audio tubes are certain to sound good
- Tubes graded on the Amplitrex are known good and are going to last longer
- O.S Pre amp and Power tubes are worth what you paid for them
- An audio noise test is performed and only low noise tubes are passed
- The Amplitrex assures your tubes are not contaminated internally
- Peace of mind that your tubes are certain to work without question
- You can get your tubes exactly matched so you can keep spares that do not need to be re biased by a technician
- Your tubes are going to make plenty of clean power
- Your tubes will not make extraneous sounds
The tester will operate in the stand alone mode or when connected to a micro computer. When operated by an external computer it provides a greater level of testing with operator control over many different tests. Please review the PDF files below to see the capabilities of the tester.
