This is from a customer trade and includes a pair of KR 845s which are lightly used that are a $1300 value.  

Because of the chrome, pictures are hard to take.  On the left side of the amp, it looks like there might be a mark in the chrome.  There isn't a mark.  I can't even figure out what is reflecting on it.  The amp is immaculate.  It is 3 years old and has had two owners.  The first time it was traded for a higher end art audio amp.  Second customer opted to liquidate his whole system and you all have benefited from a few of those items being sold.  

I will pay CC/PP Fee.  You pay shipping.  

The NEW Carissa is an amazing amp.  It may only be 18w, but they are 18 spectacular watts.  

This amp is designed to deliver current and ensures outstanding performance in frequency extremes.  Tight bass and crisp treble compared to other 845 SET amps with higher power ratings.  And you get the dynamic, light, airy midrange that 845 tubes are known for.  The soundstage is immersive and delivers an unbelievably satisfying listening experience.  

This latest Carissa edition is a Copper Reference which means that it is wired using only continuous cast copper and is fitted with Art Audio’s Silver Foil Coupling Capacitors.  It also has our MKII standard power supply that are ultra quiet.  

Other changes vs. the second generation Signature Edition include include the addition of a second transformer, one to heat the tubes and the other for audio circuits.  A soft start device has been added to further isolate the HT transformer for the audio circuits. Additionally, many of the high temperature components were moved closer to the heat sink to ensure the amp runs cooler than ever.
