I am only selling because I am liquidating my speaker set-up (moving to a small DC apartment) -- see my other ads, too.
Bluebook on this amplifier is $1800 (!!).
This Unit is ~$4000 new. For sale here at a SUBSTANTIAL discount, because the brand is not known well in this country.
The unit is made in South Africa and demonstrates exemplary build quality and attention to detail. Fully balanced architecture, with true dual-mono audio channels. Four 6922 vacuum tubes in the input section, and 250 watts of high-current MOSFET output power.
The remote control is included, is milled out of a solid block of aluminium, and could kill a man. Volume, Five inputs (one balanced), mute function.
Dead-silent, runs cool due to massive heatsinks. (Relatively) Compact size, but built like a tank.
The unit is in terrific condition, comes with the original box, remote, and owner's manual. Please see the Valve Audio website for more information and for a rave review from TONE audio magazine. There is also a review out there from the Inner Ear Magazine.
I think I found a spot or two on the face of the unit (maybe). Binding post nuts exhibit some wear from tightening.
The sound, as you can imagine, is terrific. Smooth tube midrange with extension at both ends. A true livable amplifier that won't kill your pets or your kids, can be hidden in a cabinet, and looks pretty damn attractive in person.
