The Eddie Current EC 4-45 is a true bench-mark product, setting a very high bar for single-ended triode amplification, designed to drive either your best headphones OR high-efficiency loudspeakers.

This amp is in perfect/as delivered condition, and comes from a very limited batch production. It has seen embarrassingly little use. Price includes rectifiers, input signal tubes, and 4 nearly new Emission Labs 45 solid-plate output tubes. Retail price listed is the discounted pre-production run price (with CA tax paid) plus the EML output tubes. 
The combination of the best output transformer matching, high-frequency heaters for the output tubes, interstage transformers, just 2-stages of amplification, and no coupling capacitors in the signal path all add up to an incredible level of clarity, fluidity, sound-staging, and resolution. Clear, clean, and very pure, it sounds as transparent as anything I have found. It may well be the best example of ideal matching of output transformer to output tube you are likely to encounter.  

There are extensive accounts and testimonials online, a quick Google search will provide plenty to look through.

Will ship in 3 separate cartons, (amp, power supply, and tubes) Shipping will be charged at actual cost. PayPal, please add the 3% processing fee.
