Decware Rachael, Pulled

Recommended Posts

This one is HARD to let go of and may be pulled at any moment
Rachael sports 6 watts per channel, and uses EL34 tubes for the output, as well as 6922 tubes for the input. It is an 'S.E.T.' design, meaning Single Ended Triode. This results in one of the purest forms of tube amplification. It just so happens that this was Steve Dekarts personal amp, used in his shop. Upgrades are as follows:
1) UFO transformers replace the original Decware transformers. Read more about them on the Decware Audio site. $500
2) Jupiter Besswax square stacked capacitors are installed. $250?
3) Gold Point selector switch. A huge upgrade to most any other switch out there. $100
4) All connectors on the amp are the best quality, resulting in proper tight connections, and a durable build.
5) TDK mono volume controls are used in place of the originals. Again, not an inexpensive control at $40 each, but worth the cost.
6) Silver coated copper wire used for all signal wiring.

You can view the Rachael at the Decware site for a complete description of the amp.

 

Sounds Great Looks Great and performs 100%.....................Price is 1500 (FIRM) plus shipping Accept Paypal Friends / Family. or pick it up with cash Or I can accept a Postal Money Order

 

Tubes included are:  pair of (6n2p russian military, and a pair of amperex orange 6922 INPUT TUBES), (1 valve art 274B, 1 Sentenel 5u4 Rectifiers (The Sentenel has a loose piece of glue sealant inside the glass)) (1 pair of Ruby EL34, 1 pair of Gold Lion Reissue KT77 Output )  Basically 2 full sets of tubes

 

I can send more pics via email if needed

Oh Yea it has 3 inputs or you can hook it up to a pre and use as a straight amp. Plus it is dead quiet on lowthers with oris horns approx 105 DB effecient.

Have not heard the Torii I did have the Taboo and It was certainly special 1 I will be kicking myself over selling...........Everytime I look at this I get closer to pulling it and keeping her :dry:

I am mulling it over for a bit, if you REALLY want this amplifier... get hold of Joseph before it's gone. This amp is upgraded goodness.

I'm on the Decware waiting list for a pair of monoblocks. It's a good 4-6 month wait, so if this amp fits the bill, it's a great deal with no wait.

Whew. I was getting the futon ready in preparation for repurcussions from my better half. A nice piece of gear that would have been worth it, imo.

I dont know why but I had not tried it with my Lowthers in Open Baffle...................The Rachael really shows off just how good Lowthers can be.  I am glad no one pulled the trigger. Im thinking it is just some great synergy :)
