Pristine condition VAC Phi 200. Fully balanced Class A tube amp with measured output of 110 watts per channel. This is a beautiful, addictive sounding amp. Glorious mid-range but deep, powerful bass seldom heard from a tube amp. Doug Schroeder's on-line review in the December 2010 issue of Dagogo is well worth reading, as it provides an apt description of the amp's sound.
If you have any specific questions about the amp, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 646-331-1023.
The amp has no imperfections (scratches, dents, dings) anywhere. This is the latest version of the Phi 200, with the rocker on/off power switch and the on/off switch to illuminate the VAC logo. The amp has been completely reliable and quiet.
I am the second owner. Amp was manufactured in early 2010. I purchased it locally from someone who had purchased two Phi 200s to use as monoblocs and then quickly sold one to me when he realized that one Phi 200 provided all the power he needed.
Amp comes with the original box and the manual. Tubes will be shipped separately. Amp will be double boxed. Shipment by Fed Ex Ground. Local pickup is welcome.
Serial number: 1020401
Reason for sale: I have almost no time to listen to music anymore and have decided to dismantle my 2-channel system as a result. See my ad for my Aesthetix Calypso preamp.
