Tom Evans Linear B’s!
These amps are a game changer.
Here is your chance to own one of the finest amplifiers that exist at any price (IMHO).
Dead Quiet, so musical, incredibly engaging, absolutely lifelike and palpable sound, with ZERO fatigue!
This is my personal pair of B’s. Tom built and delivered this pair to me in October of 2009.
I am an authorized TEAD dealer so buy with confidence. Please check my excellent feedback.
These B’s feature several upgrades (not performed by TEAD):
Pearl tube coolers on all 16 of the EL84 Electro-harmonix Tubes.
Bocchino Tom Cat RCA chassis inputs ,Solid copper, Pure silver plate, solder free, Cryo treated.
Cardas custom binding post, Pure solid copper, customized solder free with copper set screws!
Stock fuse and power switch replaced with highest quality Hydraulic magnetic circuit breakers (same value as stock fuse) with large easy to use toggle power switch.
IEC socket upgraded to a premium shielded and filtered unit.
these amps can do it all in a way nothing else in my experience has ever been able to do; luscious midrange combined with rarely realized frequency extension. The absence of distortion has to be (not) heard to be fully understood. The clarity and detail retrieval are astonishing, but not at the expense of musicality. It's a combination of qualities I have never heard outside of the Tom Evans amps.
The Tom Evans Linear B monoblock amps differ significantly in design from the Linear A stereo amp. The Linear B is not simply a monoblock iteration of the Linear A, but is a new breed of power amplifier. The Linear B uses Differential Global Feedback, a world first. As a 55 watt mono amplifier, the Linear B is able to produce 150 decibels of dynamic range. The output transformers have been designed to produce real power into loudspeaker impedances of 3 ohms and above
Comments by Matej Isak Mono and Stereo ultra high end audio magazine
“Tom Evans Linear B monoblocks are a rare and unique birds. Eight EL-84 tubes per channel and driven directly by an OP amp. In this configuration EL- 84 are simulating the famous legendary Japanese triode in behavior.
You'll have to take a deep breath when Tom Evans Linear hits your aura. This is like driving Formula One. It is the fact, that Linear B require very good preamp to show it's best, but when paired right, this is one of the few power amps I would call "best".
If this would be packed in the different enclosure and charged "correctly" you would have 50k figure at least.”
---LINEAR B SPECIFICATIONS---
Frequency Response: 12Hz to 90kHz 0dB down

These amps look and function showroom new!
Not a scratch on them. No swirl marks in the acrylic face.
These B's are finished in the "new" flat black color.
These will ship in the original pair of heavy duty wood crates.
You will not be disappointed.
