These tube amplifiers were painstakingly built. The wiring is uniform and perfect. They are as beautiful on the inside as they likely sound on the outside. The builders could be considered anal retentive, but in reality they are as beautiful and artful on the inside as their creations. I am happy to share these pictures of many beautiful amps with colorful and consistent capacitors, twisted wiring, parallel runs, and in some cases even the unused wires are artfully scrolled around. As beautiful on the inside as the sound they create. here are some wonderful tube amps: EDIT: The first two images disappeared from the internet so I found a couple cool pics elsewhere. The second 2 pics are from the OP.
Bought this to be able to run in all tube mode then replaced it with a Jolida JD5T to have a(nother) remote. It appears to be homemade/kit and always worked fine. Cosmetically I'd give it a 7. The tubes; 150C4 and 75C1 are Mullards, the 6SN7's are Russian Electro Harmonix and the rectifier appears to be a Chinese 6Z4. Center pin is broken off of one of the Russians but keying is obvious. Price is $200 plus actual shipping. Local pickup/meetup available if you're near the Mississippi river where Illinois, Iowa and Missouri meet. Payment is cash, check (with clearance delay) or PayPal + 3%. Offered exclusively here to you guys before going to Evilbay
So I got the audion sterling 12w class a amp I had posted about a few days ago. All I can say is holys$#@! We had two other couples over for new years last night. Among the crowd there were a couple of real skeptics in the room concerning that there would be a significant audible difference between the new little tube amp and my ss adcom gfa 2535 amp. So we started with the ss amp for an hour or so letting everyone get a taste of the cornwalls II, which are relatively new to my home. We then plugged in the tube amp and A/B'd the amps with a couple of tracks. My wife, the biggest skeptic in the room, couldn't believe the difference. Everyone present was pretty astonished. When we first switched from the tubes back to the ss adcom everyone looked at one another and asked what happened? whered the music go? This is what we were first listening to?? The ss got yanked real quick. Long story short Im psyched about the purchase! This is my first tube amp and I have no regrets.
