Selling my wonderful Wells Audio Majestic integrated amp. I've decided to stick with my separates which cost more than double what this great amp does... It was a tough decision though.
You'd have to spend a lot more to get an integrated amp that sounds better than this Majestic. It's only been out since the end of last year and just made it's big debut at AXPONA with Salk Speakers.
The Wells Audio Majestic has all the grunt you need from a SS amp, but with a wonderfully musical and lush sound. I'd love to keep it, but I just can't justify it if it's not in my dedicated room and so it's up for grabs here.
The amp was purchased from an Authorized Wells Audio dealer who had it in their showroom for a few months and then sent back to Jeff Wells and his crew for a checkup and to make sure it was 100% as intended, and then it was shipped directly to me. I am the first owner.
The amp is in excellent condition. Includes remote. Please let me know if you have any questions. This amp deserves to be the centerpiece of someones main system. I'm very conservatively rating this an 8/10... but I'm sure the new owner will be happy.
Here are the specs and info from WellsAudio.com:
"Our new integrated amplifier, the Majestic, makes no compromises. Our objective at Wells Audio is to build the very best sounding audio equipment in the world, despite cost or
design limitations. The Majestic may be the best example of that
philosophy to date. At a robust 150 watts into 8 ohms and vanishingly
low distortion and noise levels, the Majestic embodies the full, quiet, detailed, sweet and rich sound that is the hallmark of our success. We believe that the Majestic is not only the best performing integrated amplifier at or near its price point on the
market, but that it competes with some of the best and expensive
equipment in the world.
The Majestic features 5 inputs (one pair XLR), a beautiful volumeter, and a
remote control for muting or adjusting your volume. It's well-equipped,
but is designed more like a Bowie knife than a Swiss army knife--sleek
and functional. The Majestic is that rare integrated amplifier that can
take its place at the heart of a truly high-end audio system, but do it
without giving up the necessary power and performance that is the case
with most integrated amps. Audition yours today. We think that the only
things you'll find missing are the extra boxes, cables and complexity."
“But with the Majestic, it transcends the bounds of
audiophile technical description of sound. It has the ability to draw you into the music easily and consistently and make you forget about words. And when was the last time that was a bad thing?”
