  1. I'm using a Decware SE84UFO2 for vinyl listening and a PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium HP integrated for streaming. The Decware is an incredible pairing with my Forte IVs. I didn't buy it new though. Got it on Facebook Marketplace for just under $2k. They can be found on the used market every so often. Decware has a classiffied section on their forum. Keep an eye out for one there. But be ready to pounce if you see one. The PL is very good as well. I have done some tube rolling with it though.
  2. I have a couple tubes l used with a Decware amp. A selected Telefunken E88CC (open 3D sound) $150. Also a rebranded Philips GZ34 rectifier $300. Both sound great. These were bought for some tube rolling adventures. I just have other tubes that I liked better.
  3. For your consideration is a PrimaLuna Dialogue HP integrated amp. Asking $3850 obo. I am the second owner. Original owner purchased new from Upscale Audio (verified by receipt and his home address on shipping label on box). This has been a fantastic amp. I’ve owned for just under 2 years. I drove a pair of Klipsch RF-7iis and now Forte IVs with it. Never turned it up past 10-11 o’clock on the volume dial as it was all I needed to get loud. I know people will ask why am I selling? Plain and simple I want to move on to separates. This amp functions fine. Not a t single issue ever. I know some will scoff at the price. But in addition to the 6 original PL 12au7s and 8 EL34s. I will include: 8 x Gold Lion KT77s 4 × RFT ECC82 12AU7 2 x Brimar CV4003 12AU7 2 x Brimar CV4003 12AU7WA 2 x 1957 TELEFUNKEN ECC82 12AU7 Ribbed Plate 2 x CIFTE NOS/NIB 12AU7 ECC82 - year 1962 2 x 1964 Amperex Bugle Boy 12AU7 ECC82 Tube Halo Getter 2 x 6189W JAN Sylvania 12AU7 4x 6189 W SYLVANIA 12AU7 I’m located in the Silver Spring MD area. I don’t want to ship this. I’d prefer local pickup after a demo. Original box and accessories included. The remote is missing one of the rubber bands.
  4. I have a pair of Forte IVs, I was able to demo them against the III side by side. I paid the extra $1k without a second thought. I was also able to listen to the LS during the same demo. I definitely have to own a pair someday!!
  5. Wow! Amazing price. If I weren't out of the country right now I'd be all over this deal.
  6. Up for consideration today is a Line Magnetic 216ia. Currently it has 4 Gold Lion KT88s, 2 Electro Harmonix 12BH7 and 2 Genelex 12AX7 in it. It will come with the original LM KT88s as well. I will throw in an extra set of Genelex 12AX7s. For an additional $125 I’ll include a set of Valvo 12AX7s. I had an issue with the remote. The bulb in it was replaced I have yet to test it out. I will as soon as I can hook it back up. This amp has been a solid performer no issues other than the remote. Only reason for the sale is I recently acquired an HH Scott 299B. This will come with original box, manual, protective cage and remote. $1100 obo for just the amp. Additional $125 for Valvos.
  7. I priced this to move. I paid $500 plus taxes for the turntable. I’m literally giving the platter, mat and phono preamp away for free.
  8. Today for your consideration is my Debut Carbon turntable and Tube Box DS. I’ve had this for about a year. I estimate it has around 150 hours on it. Probably less. But I’m just guessing here. The only upgrade is the Pro-Ject Acryl-it platter. The Tube Box has the stock tubes. Unfortunately I don’t have the box for the turntable. But I believe I have the box for the DS. Both items will be carefully boxed for shipping if needed. I recently purchased the Rega Planar 8. This is the only reason for the sale. No issues whatsoever with either item. $550 shipped. Local pickup/demo in the Silver Spring MD area.
  9. I have a gently used McIntosh MA5200 for sale. I’m the second owner. I drove a set of RF7s with it. Until i purchased a tube amp. It’s 100watts into 8ohms. Never had a single issue and it sounds great. I’m just trying to thin my collection. Before I purchase another amp. It will come with the owners manual, remote, power cord and the original double box. I’d prefer local pickup. But I’d ship at buyers expense. I’m in the Silver Spring MD area. $2600 obo Nate 301-318-2014
  10. I recently acquired a pair of cherry Heresy iii. A coworker relocated to Florida and said he didn’t have room for them. He sold them for an eighth of what they’re worth. Wasn’t even in the market. I just couldn’t pass the deal. They sat for few weeks then I finally played them I was super impressed by what I heard. That got me thinking it was time to upgrade my current setup. So I sold my RF-7ii (it was a sad day. I loved those speakers). I demoed the Forte III and IV side by side. There was a LaScala demo too. But that was just to say I’d heard them in person. The demos were done with a McIntosh MA352. I was super impressed by both. I ultimately decided on the Forte IV. I’m no expert on speakers. So I don’t have any technical jargon. But the reworked midrange is definitely noticeable in a side by side demo. As much as I loved my RF7 and as good as I felt they sound. The Forte’s are just better. My PrimaLima brings them to life. As you can see from the pic. I built some stands to get them up off the floor and some vibration isolators from Amazon. I don’t have any questions. Kinda new around here and just wanted to share my journey.
  11. In my never ending quest to thin out my audio collection. Today I have for sale a pair of RB-81 and a Tec-On model 55 single ended tube amp. $250 for the speakers $250 for the amp. I’m in the Silver Spring MD area and would prefer local pickup. Only selling the speakers. Not the stands. Nate 301-318-2014 The specs on the amp: RCA single-ended inputs USB DAC (accepts 16-bit 44.1/48kHz) EL84 x 2 output tubes [fitted with 6P14 “Beijing” in current production] 5755 Raytheon NOS driver tube Self-biasing Zero global negative feedback Choke input filter Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) @ 1kHz, 8 Ohm less than 1% at 4.5 Watts Frequency Response: 17Hz – 27kHz (-3 dB); 30Hz – 17 kHz (-1 dB) Input Impedance: 47 KOhms Power Source: 115/230VAC switchable Power Consumption: 80 Watts Dimension: 7 1/2″ (W) x 10″ (D) x 7″ (H) Weight: 13 lbs
  12. They indeed sound great. Kinda broke my heart to sell them.
  13. After some research I maybe asking a bit much for these. Updated the price. I’m a long time lurker. First time poster. I’m trying to sell a pair of RF-7iis I bought a couple years ago. I believe I’m the second owner. Never had a single issue. Cabinets are in great shape. Couple nicks here and there. Selling these to fund a pair of Fortes. I’d like to get $1100 obo. Local pickup is preferred as I don’t want to ship them. I’m in the Silver Spring MD area. I’d be happy to demo for a serious buyer. I have the grills also. Nate 301-318-2014 nateallen34@gmail.com
