VA-680i is IMO the best sounding Kronzilla! This is lightly used hot rodded DEMO model. These tubes last 10,000 hours. We have less than 1000 hours on the tubes. That means that it has about 90% of life left with years of service.
Selling below our cost, there is only unit at this price. The buyer will have manufacturer's warranty. This unit has about 3000 Euros upgrades in it that are not in stock unit. We purchased Furutech RCA and XLR connectors and shipped them. This is the best sounding amp that KR makes and this unit has as many tweaks as we could possibly have. The unit has been crated and is ready to be shipped via Freight. 8/10 is conservatively rated. There are no cosmetic or operational issues with the unit. It is the same amp we used at NY Audio Show 2015 and got great feedback. https://www.chestergroup.org/newyorkaudioshow/2015
We are picking up another line and someone will get a lifetime deal for a Super Amp and a piece of art.
Kronzilla VA680i Stereo Integrated Amplifier with upgrades
- ECO mode
- run as solid state only amp with no tubes - Upgraded Furutech input and output connectors We had a customer who was making very nice comments about the sound from our system with VA680i. After some time, I switched to Tubes from Eco - solid state mode. He was blown away with depth, image density, musicality, nuance etc. He said solid state was great as a main amp - not just for background listening! With this unit, you are essentially getting two amps in one. A solid state amp and a tube amp. I keep the amp on solid state mode when I am doing work and switch to tube for critical listening or when evaluating another component in the system.
- Upgraded custom paint
(dull gold) - Quieter operation

Johannes Maier of AUDIO wrote (Dec. 2013): "...the Kronzilla VA680 is crystal-clear and offers the finest resolution imaginable. It is magnificant and powerful with a well-formed bass. All these qualities combine to produce a live character that transports the listener right into the concert hall... the Kronzilla comes from another world, compared to the amps that rely on their reputation rather than their sound...the Kronzilla needs the cheering just about as much as a Stradivarius does..."
The amp comes in a crate and will go through freight shipping. I will cheerfully refund if actual shipping is less. The amp is crated and ready to ship. Tubes ship in a separate box.
Thanks for your interest
