Yaquin MS-34C Integrated Remote & Headphone Jack [Expired]


no longer for sale

EL-34B and 6SN7 tubes, 10.5 W per channel, with headphone jack. The construction and parts quality are very good for the price IMO, with machined aluminum casework/cage and heavy aluminum remote. The condition is as received when I bought it new, and would easily merit a 9 except for the substandard finish, so I'm rating it as a 7. There are numerous, small spots/bumps in the finish (4th and 5th photos are detail images of the forward and aft right side, showing the most pronounced flaws). Most of the spots/bumps are covered with the red finish, but a few are grey. I can’t tell whether they are the result of primer peeking through the finish, or flecks of something that settled on the surface before the finish dried. Price includes stock tubes, plus 3 Shuguang Black Treasure 6CA7-Z tubes and a pair of Sylvania 6sn7 GTA 3 Hole Badboy black plates with heavy chrometops. I bought the 6sn7's used for $85 from a reputable seller and bought the Black Treasures new for $260 per pair to keep as backup tubes for an integrated amp that I’ve since sold. The Black Treasures have approximately 100 hours on them and, while I can't vouch for how many hours are on the 6sn7's, the seller's measurements were close to new, and I've only used them for 3 months. You can find several rave reviews of the Black Treasures online (a Tone Magazine review concludes "these represent the pinnacle of EL34 tube sound in terms of current production tubes"). The upgraded tubes significantly improve sonics! At my asking price, I’ll cover the cost of PayPal
