Spread Spectrum Technologies Ambrosia Preamp Black Face/Remote/Tone Controls [Expired]


no longer for sale

Amended on

For sale is the Ambrosia preamplifier from James Bongiorno's Spread Spectrum Technologies company (manufacturer of the highly acclaimed Ampzilla 2000 amplifier).

This pre-amp is the recipient of Enjoy The Music.com's "Best of 2008" Award. It was also recently very favorably reviewed in the January 2012 issue of The Absolute Sound. They summed up with: "The Ambrosia and Ampzilla are by any standard statement products that can take their place among the finest amps and preamps money can buy. At $15,000 the combo is far from inexpensive though that figure does include two excellent phono preamps and a headphone amplifier. Reflect too,that there are competing electronics exceeding $100,000 that give you far less of everything. To those who find it impossible to believe components priced as reasonably as these can possibly be as good as those costing a whole lot more, I only say "they are. Please audition with your mind as open as your ears." If I were closing up shop tomorrow as a reviewer I would buy them and live happily ever after."

I purchased this pre-amp new from an Ampzilla/Spread Spectrum Technonogies dealer in November 2008. It is in perfect condition. New retail price for this pre-amplifier is $7500.00. I'm asking $3200.00 plus shipping (PayPal fees included at my asking price).

Two things to note about this preamp:
1) It is a First Edition version rather than the latest Second Edition. The main difference from what I've been able to gather is that the Second Edition doesn't have a fan. Mine has a fan that occasionally goes on. It's a very quiet fan and never really bothered me.
2) There's a faint "clicking" noise that can be heard when changing inputs/functions and sometimes the volume. This has to do with the software system used and is more noticeable with high-sensitivity speakers. This is described in the owners manual (under the "theory of operation" section) which can be viewed on the Spread Spectrum Technologies website.
