Choice SET amp's 700.00

Recommended Posts

I have 2 SET amps and I am keeping 1, I frankly dont care which as it will be used in my 2nd system (Bedroom). Both amps are 100% functional Both sound great IMHO Both will come with a full set of tubes and possibly spares (If I have them)

 

Amp - 1,  Is a derivation of the Darling Circuit, Dead quiet on my 96db speakers, It uses a quad of the 1626 triode ran in parallel for an output of approx 1.5 wpc. it is tube rectified and uses a pair of 8532 driver tubes. The amp is what I would call very reference oriented, it is not your typical SET amp it is much more detail oriented with a tilt to neutrality.  The amp uses Edcor iron and is made by an amp builder out in California.  I have personally put 100 or so hours on the amp. with zero issues. The amp includes a switchable speaker  imp. of 4, 8, or 16 ohms. It also has a built in volume control that would allow use without a pre-amp. I have and will include a spare quad of the 1626 and a spare pair of the 8532 drivers.  Price is 700.00 plus shipping.  Below is a link to another amp exactly like mine except for different iron

Amp - 2 is a Waamamps  45 / 2A3 Directly heated Triode uses 5u4 type Rectifier and 6sl7 driver. The amp is auto Bias and will come with a pair of EH 2a3 tubes.  This amp has a slight hum that can be attenuated using the HUM pots.  In my system I am able to dial out nearly all hum but between tracks some hum can be heard.  (YMMV as I have had different results with many amps, It is system dependent).  below is a link to builders site

 A bump for a good forum member, also I have heard that Darling amp & it is dead quite & has plenty of power for horns .

 

Happy tunes,
