  1. These mono amplifiers are hand made in Greece. They are in excellent condition, would be hard to tell them from new. They are very powerful at 150 watts/channel so should drive most speakers. You will not be disappointed in the performance or the condition.

    Hi all.

    Thanks for the experiences u shared. 

    I just finished 0.75 watt 1626 set drive amp with 6sl7 and 5y3 rectify. 

    For the first 2 hours the sound is sweet smooth details and very musical.


    However, it still lack of impact on the low frequency.


    I think the la scala needs more power. 

    May be the el84 se ultra linear and 2a3 se will be my next project : )

    Yeah I’d say .75 watt is a little low. Try a good 300B amp. That’ll git er done.



  3. Currently I am borrowing a friend's CJ MV60 which is adequate for most music. But it will run out of steam if pushed on harder, more complex stuff. Next weekend I will picking up a McCormack DNA 0.5 which has been modified by SMc with the GT-20 package and gravity base. So yes, I'm going to the dark side. But I am familiar with Steve's amps and all I've owned (4) in the past sounded very good.

  4. I wasn’t going to mention it in this thread, but I will since the speakers are sold.


    I bought a pair of Verity Audio Parsifal Ovations. They will absolutely not work with anything close to low power. I got them at a price too good to pass up and I’ll say I am smitten.

  5. For sale is a custom made Aric Audio EL84 amplifier. 15 watts of EL84 goodness. I compared this to the Music Reference RM-10 II and the Aric came away the winner. It is in excellent condition and comes with NOS Mullard tubes in every position. This amp is just incredible with horns.

  6. The time has come for me to part with my beloved LaScalas. These are a 2019 pair, just before the AL5 came out. They are B stock because of some small spots in the clear coat. When the finish is oiled, they completely disappear. This lasts for about 3 months before needing to reapply. I have provided before and after pics so you can see what I mean. Otherwise they are in excellent condition and have been in my dedicated listening room since purchasing from forum member @michaelwjones about two years ago.

    I have the original boxes and don’t mind shipping if someone wants to do uShip or another method you prefer. Of course pick up here in Virginia would be greatly appreciated.
