Selling a very nice Zesto Bia 120 stereo amp.  Class A full tube.  If you have never experienced how much control a tube amp can have this is the one.  I circled a spot in one of the photos where there’s a little spot.  It’s not very noticeable but there none the less.  Ships in manufacturer packaging  


Design Philosophy

With my pro audio background in the recording studio and live concert mixing,
I wanted to build an amp that allowed me to hear music the way I know it should sound.

I wanted it to be easy to use, reliable and with plenty of power to drive the speakers. In short,
I wanted power without compromising the music.

Class A Design

The tubes are always on, so you have power when you need it. Class A is fast and responsive. There is no lag, providing your music more punch, transient response, better dynamic range and transparency.

Circuit Topology

I choose a Class A Ultra-linear, Push-Pull circuit design to deliver the most precise, enjoyable and faithful reproduction possible.

Unsung Hero

The unsung hero of a power amp is its power supply. That’s why my design incorporates a custom Toroid power transformer and a choke-based, dual-mono power supply to deliver
all the “slam” you can handle.

Easy to use

With Auto Bias, you need no adjustments. It’s safe, consistent and the settings are always perfect so you can enjoy your music.

What is Bia?

In Greek mythology, Bia is the Titan Goddess of force and power.
