TANDBERG 3009A Mono Block Amplifier Pair.
Up for sale
is a very rare pair of Tandberg 3009 A audiophile-grade mono amplifiers. These are the second iteration (A
version) of the 3009. This amplifier design is a mono design of Tandberg's
highly regarded 3006A stereo amplifier. These were designed and made Norway in
limited numbers. The 3009A mono blocs hardly ever come up for sale as
owners cherish this masterpiece of amplifier design and never let go.

MOSFET output devices to deliver 200 watts into 8 ohm. The use of MOSFET output
devices is a deliberate, high-quality design choice to minimize distortion
and duplicate the warmth of tube sound in a solid state design.
