Emitter II Exclusive Battery, Version Blue, model 2013 (from 2012),
forerunner of recent model, 230V/240V version (to drive it in USA on
220V-line of air-conditioning unit no problem!). In wonderful near mint
condition! It comes with all original-accessories, documents, manual and
the beautiful Corian remote-control (near mint too), original
shipping-boxes available. Nonsmoker-household.
It has full upgrade to incoming-stage of recent model, 1 symmetric and 5
RCA inputs (2x WBT-nextgen), additional 1direct in and tape-output. The
following extras are built in (original made by ASR): SUB-output and a
unique voltage-reduction for OPA of incoming-stage, switchable in
-0.6V-steps, that allows a sound-finetuning of incoming-OPA - especially
to the sensible OPA-843SQ - and generally the possibility of more
extended OPA-rolling (843SQ not build in because of upgrade but enclosed).
One of the world very best amps ever build, nearly UNBEATABLE! (except
by the very newest model :-), so I'm selling it because of upgrade to
model 2016 (coming soon).
For calculating shipping-costs; package-size and weight, sent as

1x Battery-Supply: 61 x 53 x 38 cm, net 32 kg, total 36 kg
2x Power-Supply: 61 x 53 x 38 cm, net 26 kg, total 30 kg
(total 159 kg = 350.50 lbs)
For calculating incoming-tax: HS-code is 85185000
In any questions - shipping-costs to your location, whatever - please
Because of continuous development Emitters since 2013 are sounding
better than older units built before, that are not really comparable
with older models (have had all and changed to each newest one because
of better sound).
Fixed price, price-ballers will be ignored.
NO Paypal (!) - bank-transfer ONLY.
Im willing to give 1000.- USD rebate for cash and carry (from Munich in
Bavaria) or self-organized shipping (picked up by your own
shipping-agency or friend), so I will not have any effort with shipment.
Some excerpts from the reviews:
Jeff Day - Positive Feedback Online | April 2013
".... The ASR Emitter II Exclusive is one of those very rare audio
components that sounds superb in reproducing the sonic aspects of
recordings as well as musical content of recordings, but also transcends
both of those categories of attributes to make the recorded music
listening experience come alive and be involving in the way a live
musical experience is, engaging my emotions and immersing me into the
artistic experience of the music.
I have found Friedrich Schaefer's ASR Emitter II Exclusive to be simply
the finest musical transducer in an amplifier that I have ever
encountered. The ASR Emitter II Exclusive is very adept at presenting
the music in a true high-fidelity manner with an intense level of
musical involvement. The ASR Emitter II Exclusive does everything right
with musical attributes like timbre, melody, harmonies, rhythm, tempo,
dynamics, loudness, and beat. It also does everything right on
audiophile sonic parameters like transparency, soundstage, soundspace,
and imaging. ...."
David Chesky wrote, very satisfied about new incoming-stage, in an
open thank-you letter to manufacturer:
Thanks for the mod
I think its sounds more organic. Also it helps the depth and low level
Some would say it sounds soft, but in fact it is more resolved. it takes
less of the artificial energy of the upper mid range away and makes it
more real. I think it is a nice improvement
sometime high end audio is more like florescent colors, and in real life
we have more pastels
The amp now sound more like real life.
I have told others to try it
"... It is a nice step closed to be able to recreate live music.
Nice work !!!!
