Cary Rocket-88 stereo push-pull tube amp in great condition. Switches for Triode or Ultralinear mode, plus 4 or 8 ohm taps, all switchable on the fly without having to power down. The input sensitivity on this amp is lower than normal so if your current system has a bit too much gain or maybe you are using high sensitivity speakers, then here's your amp! Otherwise if you want to get loud with this amp you will need an active preamp. I used it successfully with a passive (Monolithic PA-1) however I had more headroom with an active preamp. Basically if you have an active preamp you could skip the "R" version of this amp which is much more expensive since it seems all they did was add the gain stage missing from the earlier version. However, I have not compared the two so that is merely an assumption. All I know is that this is a dang fine amp. I have two of them actually and will be keeping one of them.
The amp will be shipped with ALL tubes removed, including the internal green eye tubes, so there will be some minor assembly required. This will give you a chance to check out all the zany point-to-point circuitry inside and of course allow for a good zap or two if you forget to unplug it!
Another cool part they don't immediately tell you about is that you don't HAVE to use KT-88s for the output tubes, you can also use EL34s, 6L6s etc. I intend to try this on mine sometime.
Keep your listening room a little warmer and cozier this coming winter with this mighty chunk of high fidelity iron.
