  1. Up for sale is a great wireless streamer. Excellent condition with just a few small scuffs around the USB port. This is DSD capable.

    scott 299c - pittsburgh Cl

    That's my old 299c. It's in very nice condition with just a couple scuffs on the face. I traded it to this gentleman in non-working condition for a working Fisher 400. It only had output in one channel, but, given the ad description, it seems Joe was able to get that all sorted out. It has original HH Scott output tubes and rectifier. I can't remember what the 12ax7's were, maybe winged C's.

    The panels were actually installed for a different speaker, but when the Fortes are rotated into this room, I don't really notice any ill effects from leaving them in place. To be fair, though, I never listened to them in this room without the panels. In summary, I have no idea what affect they have on bass response lol! I do love the bass from these though. All in all, these are a very fun speaker that are right at home playing late night jazz, or rocking out. Very versatile and affordable at this price point, imho.
  6. Here's a very nice pair of Klipsch Forte II's in walnut. Very close to excellent condition with just a few blemishes and minor signs of wear. These are fully functional and sound great. These are one of my favorite Klipsch models that seem to fly under the radar. I'll have more photos available shortly. Until then feel free to view the videos below of the actual speakers for sale. Note two different mic setups were used in the videos. Offering these on the Klipsch forum before moving to other outlets.

    I emailed about them within an hour or so of them being posted and never got a reply.
  9. Amazing interconnects designed by Dale Pitcher. Uses Jack Bybee's filters at both ends of each cable. Deep, dark backgrounds and stunning clarity. You can't beat these cables at this price point.On cable has two small marks. Looks like it may have come into contact with a tube and singed the techflex coating. Reasonable offers considered. Price: $725 shipped. PayPal +3% or FF. Local Pickup in NW PA available.
  10. Item: Jeff Rowland Model 112 amplifier Price: $1,800 shipped (lower 48) SOLD Location: Franklin, PA 16323 Trades: Different amp, amp/preamp combo, integrated? More pics available. Only lets me upload one here due to file size restrictions. PM me. One of the finest quality components to ever grace my rack. This is an amp that looks as good as it sounds. Attention to detail has gone into every step of the design and build process. At 150 wpc at 8 ohms and 275 wpc at 4 ohms, it has the power to drive just about any speaker available. The sound is smooth and inviting, yet detailed and articulate. The amp is in excellent condition overall with just a few very minor rub marks on the aluminum chassis (hence the conservative 7/10 rating above). Detailed photos available to interested parties. Amp will ship in its original box and packaging. Owner's manual is included. Todd Warnke at SoundStage sums up the Model 112 here:"In all, the Rowland Model 112 is the definition of jewel-like mass. Everything about it is designed with careful thought, attention to detail, and with a music-lover's heart. The tonal response -- full, accurate, but tight and extended on bottom; mids that are detailed if just a whisper lean; highs that are extended, sweet, detailed and grain-free -- leads to hours of inviting, fatigue-free listening. The limitless power of the Model 112 allows listening to anything, from after-hours ambient to full-scale orchestra. Sonic cues and musical detail are ample, if not quite to the level of the super amps (and Rowland has several of those to offer you should you have the budget). And the Model 112 presents a stage that is wide, deep and stable. All this combines to create a slightly laid-back character that makes for an easy long-term partner.This is an amp that's exquisitely honed to do a difficult job with unflappable control. It never runs out of steam, it goes all the way to the bottom of the musical scale with as complete composure as it goes to the top. It digs deep into a recording and delivers the goods without edge or glare. Add in a design that simply beautiful and you have an amp for people who appreciate quality, will pay for it, and then settle down for the long run with their choice....Todd Warnketodd@soundstage.com"FEATURES· XLR input connectors for balanced (Differential Modeä) system configuration.· RCA input Connectors for unbalanced system configurations.· Selectable overall gain of 26 or 32 dB.· User selectable switching between balanced and unbalanced connections.· 12V remote ON/OFF power switching connector.· Automatic temperature stabilizing circuitry maintains constant operating temperature.· CE approved speaker output connectors requiring no tools for tight connections.· Automatic bias adjustment maintains optimal bias setting regardless of source material or loudspeaker load.· Standby power condition reduces warm-up time.· Fail-safe operation provided by user-resetable thermal circuit breakers located on rear panel.· Quiet, transient-free operation during power and function mode switching.· Automatic input muting under anomalous input or output operating conditions.· Fully-balanced Differential Modeä circuit topology implemented from input to output.· Low resonance, structurally integrated chassis constructed of precision-machined aircraft grade aluminum.SPECS· Output Power:· Continuous RMS watts @ 8 ohms 150 watts @ 4 ohms 275 watts· Power Bandwidth: DC to 160 kHz, -3 dB·· Slew Rate: 30 volts/microsecond· THD + Noise: <.008%· Damping Factor: >60, 20 to 20 kHz· Gain (1 watt, 8 ohms): User Selectable Internal Jumper, 26 dB or 32 dB· Input Impedance: 40k ohms· Common Mode Rejection Ratio: >80 dB, 20 – 20 kHz· Absolute Phase: Phase-Inverted· Power Supply: 500 VA toroidal transformer with 100,000 MFD total storage capacitance.

  11. Small world, indeed. I grew up in Oil City and moved back to Franklin after military/college. Despite the area's shortcomings, we love it here.
  12. No headphone option on this one. I don't find this amp noisy at all. Even with my ear to the speaker (Tekton Lore) it's very quiet. I should also note that this has the optional impedance switch kit and can also run 45 tubes.
  13. Item: Bottlehead Stereomour SET amp w/ impedance switch kit Price: $750 + shipping SOLD Location: Franklin, PA 16323 Payment: PayPal (FF or +3%) Trades: High quality preamp to mate with Jeff Rowland Model 112 I bought this not long ago, but my system has taken a turn in a different direction (non SET friendly speakers). I got a great deal on this setup, and I'd like to pass that same deal on to someone else. The tubes alone are a nearly $600 value! The Stereomour looks great and sounds even better. It puts out ~3.5 wpc which is enough for my old Tekton Lores in a medium/large size room. Match it with a preamp with a little gain (I happen to have one of those too, if you're interested) and you'll have plenty of volume. There are a couple dings in the top of the walnut base. See photos. The JJ's are a little loose in the socket, but the other tubes are nice and snug. Here's what's included: Stereomour amp w/ impedance switch kit and furniture quality walnut base 10 different new and NOS driver tubes ($10-$15/ea) JJ 2A3-40 output tubes ($260 new) Electro Harmonix 2A3 Gold output tubes ($130 new) Sovtek 2A3 output tubes ($100 new) Shorting plugs for setting hum pots Additional walnut base w/ Bottlehead logo Bottlehead Stereomour amp and Tekton Lore speakers by Audio Database, on Flickr Stereomour and JJ 2A3-40&#x27;s by Audio Database, on Flickr Bottlehead Stereomour and Custom 12sn7 Preamp by Audio Database, on Flickr IMG_20170805_081103 by Audio Database, on Flickr IMG_20170805_081113 by Audio Database, on Flickr IMG_20170721_170801 by Audio Database, on Flickr IMG_20170721_170832 by Audio Database, on Flickr IMG_20170721_170840 by Audio Database, on Flickr IMG_20170721_170902 by Audio Database, on Flickr IMG_20170721_170918 by Audio Database, on Flickr IMG_20170721_170929 by Audio Database, on Flickr
  14. Beautiful cabinets on these. Asking price?

    Unfortunately, no. I really don't need another large pair of speakers in the house. That's not to say I didn't have an email typed with the mouse hovering over the send button before deciding to pass on them.
