I'm liquidating my entire system and so this too must go. This is the best sounding amp that I've had in my system. It is a true overachiever. It has the brilliant and engaging midrange and dynamics of a SET amp with the extra kick of a push pull. This model has been factory upgraded with Jupiter Beeswax Caps ($300 option) and stepped volume attenuator ($150 option). It comes with 2 bases. It is pictured with the molded black wood base and will come with an extra natural maple wood base ($100 option) as well. It also comes shipped in the "bullet-proof" custom fitted pelican case ($299 option) to assure a safe transit.
The amp comes with upgraded tubes.
Power tubes: JJ 6CA7, which I find to be one of the best with this amp. They bring out the emotion of the music.
Input tubes: AMPEREX USA USN PQ 6922 ($100) - one of the best (read joe's tub lore), detailed, lively, and musical
AMPEREX orange globe holland made 6922 ($75)
Rectifier Tubes: RCA 5U4GB - black plates, tall bottle ($64)
Voltage Regulator Tubes: Various
The price for this setup new with all options and upgraded tubes would be well over $3700. My asking price is $2500 plus shipping and paypal fee.
The tubes will be shipped along with the extra base in a separate box. If you wish I can ship the amp directly to Decware in order to transfer the lifetime warranty ($75 fee) and they will look it over and then ship it to you. While at Decware you can have it upgraded to the MK4 if you like for $450. The normal upgrade price for MK3 to Mk4 would be $700. Essentially, you can get a MK4 for $2950 plus shipping saving at least $500 and the months long wait for build!!
However some people like the sound of the MK3 over the MK4 but its a preference.See my other ads:http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=122382.0http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=123887.0http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=123899.0
