  1. I picked this amp up from forum member Justin Weber a few years ago. It has been a stellar performer, and with 25 watts into 8 ohms (50 into 4), it is pretty versatile as well. The amp was built by Dave at Fastlane Audio. It uses the same Jenson transformers, boards, etc that the real First Watt F6 uses. I am asking $750 plus actual shipping costs. Local pickup is welcome in northwest Arkansas.
  2. I am selling my McIntosh MX110. It was purchased from Tom Manley at McIntoshaudio.com in 2008 (by previous owner, not me) and was gone over by Terry DeWick to meet all original specs at that time. Power cord has been replaced with a newer 2 prong cord, and I can see some newer caps and resistors under the chassis, I'm not an electronics tech by any stretch so, beyond the obvious, I can not say what work was performed by Terry. This MX110 tuner/pre is the rarely seen X model, made between the M and the Z. From what I've read, the X model has the updates of the Z, minus the panlocs and newer style faceplate. More importantly, it retains the 2 sets of outputs from the M model. This is perfect for connecting a powered sub or headphone amp. All functions are working perfectly, all display lights, including tuning indicator, work as they should, no cracks in the glass, bubbles, etc. Overall, very nice. One small scratch on faceplate next to tuning knob on the right, as seen in pics. All tubes are high quality, made in USA, Great Britain, or Germany. I do have a very nice slant leg L12 McIntosh cabinet, available separately, if interested. I'm pretty sure I have a complete set of backup tubes that will be included. I will ship it in a new Audio Classics box. Also available for pickup/audition in Fayetteville Arkansas. I am asking $1500 plus shipping.
  3. This is another piece of gear that I am not using. Trying to clean out the closets... EV Dx38 active crossover/digitil signal processor. Many of you are familiar with these- 2 inputs, 4 outputs. XLR balanced connections. Purchased from a forum member a year or two ago, used it to dial in my Altec 2-way setup then built a passive to make life simple. Works great has a few scratches as seen in pics. Asking $300 plus actual shipping or local pick up in Northwest Arkansas.
  4. I currently have more gear than I can use after selling my Chorus II's. I had planned to keep this Aleph J clone and my diy Pass Labs B1 buffer in my Altec 2-way setup and sell my McIntosh MC40's and MX110 because the first watt/pass labs gear clearly sounded better. I even created a listing for the Mac gear but never posted it. After some soul searching I just can't bring my self to sell the McIntosh. I wanted Mac tube gear for so long and I love the look of it. Ok, enough rambling... I bought this amp from long-time forum member ClaudeJ1 a few months ago to pair with my B1 buffer. The pair sounded great together, the amp functions perfectly and exceeded my expectations. If you are curious about class A, especially the Nelson Pass designs, and nice looks aren't a priority then this amp is a great place to start. I'm asking $900 plus actual shipping (guessing $40 or less) or local pick up in Northwest Arkansas. I'm including a link to Claude's original post for more info about the amp. https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/175248-sold-first-watt-aleph-j-class-a-2-ch-pwr-amp/&tab=comments#comment-2250108
  5. Sold to forum member ARjetman. He is a new forum member so I wanted to let other members know that he is a great guy and don’t hesitate for future dealings. Adam
  6. I am reluctantly selling my Chorus II's. Oiled Oak, all original (crossovers and drivers/diaphragms). Black grills in very nice shape. One passive has the dust cup dented in, I haven't tried any of the tricks to pop it out, it doesn't affect the sound so it didn't affect me. Made in 1993, sequential serial numbers. Local pickup in northwest Arkansas. Demo's welcome.
  7. Hey Guys, more gear for sell. I'm selling an EV dx38 active crossover. If you are looking at this, you are probably familiar with what it is and what it does. 2 inputs, 4 outputs. All connections balanced xlr. Unit functions perfectly, you can see some scuffing on top in the pics. Comes with power cord and user manual. I picked this up at a great price from forum member PrestonTom. I paid $325 plus shipping and that's what I'll take for it.
  8. Hey Guys, I have decided to sell my Juicy Merlin. I purchased it from another forum member about a year ago and have enjoyed it immensely. I have paired it with a single ended tube amp, vintage SS Mac, 3116 chip amp, and A first watt class A amp. Sounded great in every instance. The unit functions flawlessly and I could find no aesthetic blemishes while inspecting it for photos. This Merlin is one of the models referred to as a "Super Merlin" and uses the 6h30 tube, along with auricap capacitors, and maybe something different with the power supply from the standard Merlin, I'm really not certain about that. I put new tubes in when I got it just to know they're fresh and they probably have less than 200 hours on them. Tubes were purchased from the Tube Depot and consist on EH 6h30pi (the gold pin model) and an nos SER 6x4 (very nice tube made in Sweden). This is not a sell out of desperation, more like selling some luxury items to afford different luxury items. I believe I purchased the Merlin for $600 plus shipping and that seems to be about the going rate. So, I'll take $600 plus shipping (Continental US only please). SOLD
  9. I can't say for certain what material they are made from. There is a woven fabric pattern. I've always assumed they are phenolic. Everything Ive read indicated that's what the Forte's came with from Klipsch. The Forte's these came from were made in 1989. The difference in sound doesn't really change the overall sound of the speaker but it is noticeable. When I first installed the Ti diaphragms I listened for an evening and ended up going back to the factory diaphragms. I felt like I could hear a metallic sound that was not there with the originals. After going back to the originals, I noticed the tweeters seemed to lose composure at high volumes compared to the Ti diaphragms. At the time, I had a pair of smooth and accurate monitors so the Klipsch were my crank it up, rock and roll speakers. So I decided to leave the Ti diaphragms in. In my opinion, the factory are smoother and blend with the other drivers better at low to moderate volumes. The Ti diaphragms do a much better job at moderate to as loud as you can stand. I also think that the Ti may be preferable to those that have significant hearing loss in the high frequencies.
  10. I replaced the diaphragms in my Forte 2's with Bob's titanium version. I've sold the Forte's and now have no use for the original diaphragms. They are fully functional and fit a lot of the later heritage/extended heritage models like the heresy 2, forte 1&2, Chorus 1&2, I believe all of the KLF series and more. How about $40 for the pair shipped to the lower 48?
