  1. Klipschorns For Sale Florida West Coast

    Thanks for the offer. I was mainly interested to hear the Klipschorns. In reality, I need to downsize my gear anyway. Our baby girl is due this month on the 16th and realistically, if I were to have brought Klipschorns home my wife might have went into early labor. Glad you sold them quickly.
  2. Klipschorns For Sale Florida West Coast

    Oh wow, I was just thinking about contacting you and bringing over my hot-rod VRD's for an audition. I'm about 3 hours north of you, but this saved me a drive. I still have yet to hear a pair of Klipschorns. Congrats on the sale.
  3. lets see YOUR two channel setups

    My vintage McIntosh system Craig rebuilt for me before I moved over to the VRD's. MC240, C22 and MR71. I miss that Garrard 301 turntable with the slate plinth and 12" Thomas Schick tonearm. That vinyl rig was special. The phono preamp was a George Wright AG Signature with separate power supply.

    Yes me too. I figured they would sell within a week. I’m almost certain the first person to hear them will buy them on the spot. But there’s not many local audiophiles I know of here in the north Florida area. It’s difficult to describe the level of sound quality these amps produce without coming across like a sales pitch.

    End of year bump for some incredible amplifiers
  6. NBS Phonostage... consensus?

    I loved the phono section in my NBS. Still miss it and could kick my butt for selling it, but other things took priority. I compared it against a stand-alone SS Sutherland 20/20 and the internal phono section of a Cary SLP-98P...and ultimately preferred the NBS. It’s quite a special unit, in my opinion.

    Anyone located or traveling around the north Florida area for the holidays is welcome to drop by and hear these.

    I personally just blow them off weekly with compressed air cans to keep the dust off.
  13. NOS Valves VRD hot-rodded amps (Magnequest Iron)

    Thanks for the offer. I’m only selling these to stir up some cash while my wife is out of work. I would much prefer an outright sale. I’ll have to think about it.

    It's hiding in the list of upgrades, but yes, thanks for mentioning Schu. I retyped the list of upgrades, so hopefully now everyone can see. The Magnequest transformers are a HUGE upgrade with these. Rodney put nearly $7K into these, best I remember. I sold my other VRD's when I heard these amps. The increased bandwidth with the custom Magnequest iron produces some of the best low end presence I've ever experienced with tube amplification. I've owned a lot of gear over the years, and these VRD's with the custom iron are special. I've just got too much going on right now and could use the cash for other things in life that have taken priority. If they sell, I'm going to miss them.
