Lowest price! This is our absolute best price for this rare opportunity to own a pair of renowned, world-class tube amplifiers for a fraction of their original cost as well as for comparable products. These are one pair of our authorized dealer demo amplifiers, the World-Class KR Audio DXL Monoblocks, each using a pair of their 12"+ tall masterpiece T1610 tubes, designed from the ground up as a high performance audio tube and manufactured by KR Audio.
I have put light use on these amplifiers over about 2 1/2 years but these tubes are spec'd for an amazing 10,000 (!) hours, which with normal use can be 20 years before requiring replacement.
The DXLs are hybrid amplifiers, utilizing a solid-state driver section with power MOSFETs working in class A to drive the 1610 tubes in a push-pull mode. Rated power output is 140 watts / channel.
In many respected opinions, these amps are easily within the top few tube amplifiers in existence. The low end performance is "visceral" and extended- will blow your mind if you think tube amplifiers are shy on bass. And, coupled with their huge dynamic range, world-class harmonic structure, amazingly-realistic depth and soundstage and exceptional micro-resolution, I'd challenge you to get anywhere close for multiples of the list price.
If you're even vaguely interested or intrigued, you MUST read Mike Malinowski's review in the August 2013 6 Moons review (video review of the DXLs also available on the site). Mike does an absolutely exceptional job of describing the sonics of these amps and comparing them to the twice-the-price Tenor amplifiers. I can tell you that he is right-on as far as what we all hear from these amazing mono blocks.
This pair is in great physical condition and, of course, perfect electrical/sonic condition. No scratches or marks. Unpacked and placed once in our listening/demo room in a smoke and pet free environment and lovingly cared for.
SWITCHABLE 110V & 220V! Includes brand new pair of Synergistic Research BLACK fuses and installed pair of RED fuses.
Original wooden packing crates for each amplifier and separate packaging for the 4 tubes. Dimensions are per each of 2 crates; box for tubes additional.
