Great sounding one owner integrated amp. in great condition.
Sixmoon.com Blue Moon Component of the Year. Stereophile Product of the Year Runner Up and Class B Recommended Component for several years running – sums up the attributes of this amp nicely:
“Marked by an ‘astonishing’ build quality and ‘luxurious’ looks that contradicts its modest price, the 80 Wpc Unico…[with] tubed input stage and MOSFET output stage produce a very smooth midrange and sweetly extended treble…There was a smoothness, sweetness, and rightness to the harmonic presentation that had me thinking I was listening to an all-tube design. Then a bass note would come along to remind me that the output devices were solid state and capable of delivering some current.“ -Stereophile. Plenty of other great reviews available online as well.
This unit also includes the very good built in moving magnet / moving coil phono stage ($100 option). Comes with all the original accessories including double box, manual, two ultra-cool wooden body radio frequency remotes (the original, plus a second unused remote I obtained as a back-up (see pictures)) and original power cord. Note this is the original Unico integrated circuit design that can be upgraded through Underwood HiFi - as described in great detail at Underwood HiFi and in the Sixmoon reviews.
If you purchase at the listed Asking Price, I’ll include the following accessories:
- 1 pair Mullard CV4003 NOS 12AU7 tubes ($110 top-of-the line matched “special Conrad Johnston test” grade from Upscale Audio);
- 1 pair Radiotechnique Vintage 1965 12AU7 tubes ($80 matched “private reserve” grade from Upscale Audio);
- 1 pair Electro-Harmonix Gold Pin 12AU7 tubes (matched and balanced by thetubestore.com);
- 1 pair Electro-Harmonix standard 12AU7 tubes (matched and abalanced by thetubestore.com); and
- 1 meter PS Audio Prelude SC power cord ($135).
I am rating this an 8 out of 10 due to the slight mark on selector knob (see picture). I’m sure the knob could be easily touched up – but will leave that to the next owner – it has never bothered me. All-in-all - this unit is in excellent condition and sounds great.
Will personally deliver within 150 miles of Portland, ME. Otherwise, buyer pays actual shipping charges. The original double box will be shipped inside another box with 2” (minimum) of shipping peanuts all around for maximum protection.
PayPal preferred (i will eat the fee), will also accept money orders, cashier and personal checks (must wait to ship unit until payment clears my bank). Crazy offers will be ignored.
Thanks for looking!
