This is top push-pull model of Shindo power amplifiers that combine power/dynamics and elegance of Shindo 300B quality for absolute sound and music reproduction.
Produced in very limited numbers. Around forty were build. The 25W output from two pairs of 300B is sufficient to drive speakers of 86 db and over.
These power amps preserve the classic Shindo quality whilst delivering a generous output power.
All tubes are original except one pair of WE 300B. For my tastes a pair of WE 300B (1947/1948 ) which has large round "washer" getter halo appeared on all WE 300B "engraved base" is amazing sounding pair. I prefer to combine the original pair of WE 300B ( 1988 ) with pair of WE 300B ( 1947/1948 ). These power amps are truly a work of art, I would say they are wonderful pieces of audio history.
I am the second owner and bought these units few years ago from music lover who lives in Hong Kong. He used them as a second power amplifier in his all Shindo system incl ( Petrus preamp & Latour speakers ). Once the Richebourgs were delivered from Hong Kong I shipped the power amps to Ken Shindo and got them back from him in like new condition, fully tested and with latest improvements. The Richebourgs have 600Ohms XLR inputs and were designed to work with such preamps as Petrus / Giscours / Vosne-Romanee, as all these preamps have 600Ohms outputs and XLR connectors, but can be connected to RCA outputs. As you should know Ken Shindo product makes incredible sound if used properly. So, you have a choice now to grab this amazing sounding pair.
The units can be sold without WE 300B tubes. The price would be reduced accordingly.
BTW: I could consider trade probably from Shindo lovers, to let them upgrade the system for another level of sound reproduction. Please ask a question if you have.
