If so, the Mark Levinson No.33H fulfills that commandment better than any other electronic component I've ever heard (and, of course, I've never heard the No.33s). You can't come any closer to the sound of "no amplifier" than a pair of these babies. The 33H carries a price sticker that leaves me gasping—as much as I covet a pair, I know I'll never be able to afford them. They're also big, and can gulp down more power than many wall outlets can supply. But if you can afford them, I suggest you try them. If you can resist them, you have far more self- control than I pretend to. Besides, you owe it to yourself to experience something this near perfection.

Emotiva XPA-1 PAIR GEN-2 Mono Blocks
Only used for about 7-months. They are sonically perfect. They have a couple of minor scratches on top barely visible.It’s a whole new generation of Emotiva’s most popular monoblock power amp. Now, you get the immense, relaxed power of the previous XPA-1, together with switchable 60W Class A mode for even more amazing musicality. And, if that wasn’t enough, we upped the power output to 600W into 8 ohms in Class AB mode. Oh wait, you want it all? Class A sweetness and Class AB power? No problem! When you’re in Class A mode, the XPA-1 Gen 2 seamlessly transitions into Class AB mode when needs demand. This means you can find the sweet spot at practically every volume level—from the softest pianissimo to the full-throated roar of an orchestral crescendo. And the sound? Even better than the previous generation, thanks to small but significant refinements to our Differential Reference™ circuitry. Now, the finest details are clearly rendered, together with the refinement and finesse you’d expect from a flagship amplifier. The previous XPA-1 has been called “a beast, a monster, an abominable snowman on steroids.” Now, the XPA-1 Gen 2 has been sent to finishing school.

SOVEREIGN ETERNITY Ultra High End Power Amplifiers
Bought brand-new from a High-End dealership 3 years ago. Highly taken care of in a child-free, smoke-free and pet-free environment. I decided to upgrade my system and now this barely-used (around 1.000 hours) Ultra High End Monaural system is for sale. The listing is for two monoblock amplifiers (thus the photos seem repeated, it is a front and back picture of each (left and right) system). Please read the manufacturer´s description that follows SOVEREIGN ETERNITY is the epitome of performance and organic nature, and thus guarantees an unforgettable musical adventure. The technology necessary for such an impressive result is housed in closed, thermally active casings common to all SOVEREIGN amplifiers. The SOVEREIGN amplifier casings are made from 10 mm strong aluminium all around. The closed casing design also distinguishes itself visually, far from the appearance of traditional amplifiers it provides optimal heat distribution at the internal modules and helps avoid those undesired micro-phonic effects. Heat dissipation uses the entire surface of the SOVEREIGN amplifiers which, in itself, explains the need for the precise and elaborate workmanship that goes into the manufacturing of the SOVEREIGN casing elements. The amplifying modules equipped with selected components are housed in the interior on the left and right casing walls respectively.The extremely generously dimensioned power supply unit sits on the bottom plate.

Rowland Model 6 Amplifiers with Battery Power Supplies
I have finally decided to downsize my system and am offering my prized Rowland Model 6 mono block amplifiers with battery power supplies. These units are in excellent shape with the amplifiers being a solid 8 and the battery power supplies being a 7 due to a few marks on the top, and the fact that one power supply has a bit of a touchy power switch. This is a contact switch that energizes the unit and sometimes you need to push more than once for it to engage. Once engaged, it works flawlessly. I talked to Jeff Rowland himself about this, and he said he would not do anything until the batteries needed replacement (which should not be needed for a while). I will also included my upgraded 20A Shunyata power cords. Note, the remote control in the picture is not included. It is for the Coherence II pre-amplifier posted separately. Units come in their original flight cases (amplifiers) and shipping crates (batteries) and weigh about 80-90 lbs each. Accepted payment is by PayPal only and I will split the PayPal fees (1.5% for buyer) at the asking price. Shipping and insurance costs are the responsibility of the buyer. This sale is for shipment within the Continental US only. Please do not ask me to ship anywhere else, because the answer is no. Lowball offers and offers from individuals with negative feedback will be politely ignored. These units do not come up for sale often and especially with the optional battery power supplies. Please see my other listings for the matching Coherence II preamplifier and Cadence phono stage.

If it can sound strained or produce ugly sounds that aren't indigenous to a recording, I certainly wasn't capable of forcing it to do so -- and I gave it a thorough workout. Still, I suppose a sufficiently dedicated soul could do so, if he tried hard enough. But why would anyone want to? I auditioned the Krell FPB-300c with a wide range of associated gear and it worked like a dream with all of it -- from tube preamp to $30,000 loudspeakers. It always performed like a trooper, although I have to say that its CAST technology makes a strong argument for utilizing it in an all-Krell system. However, audiophiles don't seem to cotton to all-one-brand systems, so it's good news that the Krell is so versatile. It is $10,000, however, and there's no getting around that. It would be great if you could get it cheaper, but its build-quality is impeccable -- as is its parts quality. Factor in the cost of Krell's construction methods, which are essentially hand assembly, and it's not hard to see where the money goes. There are some mighty tasty amplifiers out there that cost less money. You might possibly even be happy with one of them -- I certainly could be with quite a few amps in the $4k-$6k range. That money will buy an awfully good amplifier. But I'd be a liar if I said those amps were as good as the Krell FPB-300c. Is the difference between the next level down and the FPB-300c vast? No. To get that last bit of performance, you pay quite a price. But make no mistake, what it buys is real. Are there amplifiers that can better the FPB-300c? If so, I haven't heard them yet. There are a few others that come close, or possibly even match it. The bad news is, they cost more. Some, like the Mark Levinson No.33H, are monoblocks that cost a lot more. On the other hand, buying the FPB-300c gets you off the audiophile treadmill. You're done. All you need to do now is sit back and enjoy. And you will. You will. ...Wes Phillipswes@soundstage.com Sound :"Transparent and effortless in operation" -- "maddeningly difficult to actually hear"; "over the course of an extended audition, I tried to categorize the FPB-300c's 'sound,' but it simply doesn't seem to have one. Features: Sustained Plateau Bias II, which employs microprocessors to monitor not only the signal level, but also the loudspeaker's impedance; Current Mode Technology allows each output stage of the Sustained Plateau Bias operation to operate in current mode rather than voltage mode, and CAST takes advantage of Krell's Current Mode Technology to transmit signal as current.It is best to call David and to visit my new web site @ www.weinhartdesign.com and CALL with questions in Los Angeles Showroom from 11-4PM @ 310-472-8880 or on my cell after hours and weekends from 10-10 @ 310-927-2260 or e-mail me directly at David@weinhartdesign.com Weinhart Design has lots of other items new and used and if you’re in Los Angeles or visiting please accept my invitation to experience our World Class Audio Showroom (BY APPOINTMENT) and please visit our web site @ www.weinhartdesign.com We are always interested in purchasing quality Audio and Video items, CD & LP collections and most quality trades are welcomed.

Bryston 2BSST2 with single-ended interconnects
While the 2BSST is nominally rated at 100 watts per channel, this amp (serial # 000470) outputs 138 watts per channel (see Power Amplifier Final Checkout image). THD at full output power for this amp is 0.00143% / 0.00159%, channel 1 and channel 2 respectively at 20 Hz. The personally signed Power Amplifier Final Checkout from Bryston is part of the image collection associated with this ad. These extremely low distortion rates make all the difference when pushing less efficient bookshelf or small floor standing speakers. The Bryston 2BSST2 will substantially outperform all lesser built amps or AVRs rated at 200+ watts. I purchased this amp new from Audio Emporium in Milwaukee. I am the sole and only owner. The amp is in pristine condition. Purchase of this amp includes the single-ended interconnects (x2) and power cable as well as the original sales receipt, manual and Bryston's Final Checkout document. The Bryston has a beautiful black appearance (19" faceplate) that will compliment any setup. The remainder of the Bryston 20-year warranty (approximately 14 years) would transfer to the new owner.

It is a long interview and gives great insight into the man behind YBA. http://www.ybahifi.com/comments.html • Matching Passion "550" Preamp/DAC and "430" CDP (w/USB input) available.===================================================YBA Signature "review"Lars Christian Løchen (June 5, 2015 - Facebook)"I ordered YBA Signature preamp, 2 (mono) poweramps and CD-player one year ago. The sound is just perfect with Magnepan speakers. I have owned a lot of extremely expensive equipment earlier, but nothing of it is able to match the YBA sound."===================================================Review excerpts of Passion 650, 550, 430:The YBA make the instruments materialize in front of us, but if you want to "touch" them, you need to reach out to them, rather than expect the sound to "reach out" to you.What sounds most beautiful is the instruments and vocals located in the middle of frequency range. Except that it happens without limiting everything to just the midrange. The treble has an open, strong character, with plenty of energy in the range corresponding to the higher registers of the vibraphone, drum cymbals, etc.This is a resolution without hyper-detailness, with the kind of detailness that is actually hidden in the shade of larger presuppositions. It manifests itself in the fact that the sound is very vivid and well differentiated at the same time. It is with great ease that the system transfers us into the atmosphere of the recording. Actually, irrespective of the recording, the sound is deep and strong, with great lower midrange and large phantom images. The resolution is particularly good. It manifests itself in excellent differentiation of musical planes and the sonic character of individual instruments, and a good insight into the recording. The French system looks great, the workmanship is perfect and it comes from a "cult" audio manufacturer. It employs best quality passive and active electronic components. The preamplifier is a joy to use and it brings in a super-bonus: a DAC with AirPlay. "...to assess the Passion 550’s performance as a DAC. I was immediately struck by the vibrancy and dynamic character of the sound.""The dimensionality and microlevel detail that I could hear from the strings helped provide a decent sense of in-the-room tangibility." "...the YBA maintained more air around voice and instruments, more transient speed, a wider dynamic range, and more transparency. By comparison, the Classé imposed a smidgen of warmth on the sound, faintly rounding out the bass while struggling to communicate the same level of articulation and microdetail that the YBA took in stride.""If you’re in the market for a reference-level preamp-DAC, you need to hear the YBA Passion 550, even if you’re shopping considerably north of its price." Transparency: Those who "practice" YBA and/or possess products ranges from the Classic or Signature (and even some references Passion) know or still remember that famous crystal clear who had made the builder's reputation. The CD 430 is an "analyst" of the first order since it will resolve a lot of detail. However, it is important to emphasize that this is not only on the top of the spectrum that is preferred. Transparency is assessed over the entire audible spectrum. We feel that all that breathes and gives a de facto soul and meaning to the music. CONCLUSION: Those who believed YBA had turned a page were wrong. Certainly, a new page was written in terms of achievements, but the fundamentals remain intact. The proven concept and is still further improved recipe.With the CD Passion 430, Yves Bernard ANDRE has designed a machine, in my opinion is ready to ensure the succession of earlier versions and challenges the highest levels for his musical performances. I think the CD Passion 430 as a "great" player landmark - a "just music" machine!=================================================== Contact:tmh audioWEB: http://tmhaudio.com/YBA.htmlEmail: firstname.lastname@example.orgTEL: 937-439-2667

This demo comes with full 2 year factory warranty.REVIEW: "...rich, uncolored and captivating... silky and organic..." Robert J. Reina, Stereophile Magazine.REVIEW:POSITIVE FEEDBACKThe 200.2 unveiled a soundstage with more realistic openness and space than I have previously heard. I believe that reproducing sound of this quality requires a system to have superb timing with equally good low level detail retrieval. The 200.2 has tremendous bass power with an attendant level of bass definition. The human voice is reproduced with marvelous fidelity via the 200.2, whether it is a solo from Patricia Barber, or the chorus of the Polovtsian Dances. It would have been easy to listen to female vocals and nothing else during the time I have had the 200.2.The most succinct description that I can offer of the sonic and musical abilities would be to say that it is the musical equivalent of baby bear's porridge. It is just right. The 200.2 amplifier never is too much, or too little of anything. The loudest crescendo isn't exaggerated; the softest caress of a piano key isn't diminished. Feed it an exceptional recording and you get stunning realism in return; feed it a lesser recording and you still can appreciate its musical strengths. I think I have found the amplifier that I have been looking for.by Kent Johnson SPECIFICATIONS:Stereo amp or single channel integrated amp, Solid State, Class A/B Power Output 2 x 200 watts @ 8 Ohms 2 x 350 watts @ 4 Ohms Frequency Response 10Hz - 50KHz +/- 0.1 dB Signal-to-Noise Ratio >100dB, "A" Weighted Input Impedance 32K Ohms RCA-unbalanced,50K Ohms (XLR) THD Less than 0.05% at rated output Damping Factor Greater than 400 Voltage Gain 28 dB AC Power: 117/234 Volts AC @ 50/60 Hz Power Cord: Detachable Break-In Time 100 hours of playing time Weight 65 lbs Dimensions 7” H x 17.7”W x 19.5 ”D Audio Input 2 RCA, 2 XLR Audio Output 2 pairs of heavy-duty, gold-plated binding posts Remote Trigger 3.3-24v DC at 5mA or more Retail price: $9,000 PAYMENT: Credit card and Paypal add 3% or wire payment with no fees.

VALVET A4 - Pure Class-A mono blocks - NEW! Hand-made ...
We’re glad to announce the new pure Class-A VALVET A4 mono-bocks, handmade by Knut Cornils in Germany. The VALVET A4 mono-blocks are the successors of the award-winning VALVET A3.5 mono-blocks and currently the most potent power amplifiers in Valvet’s line-up. Factory lead time is currently 4 weeks. So please put your order in soon. Again, long term satisfaction, real value and reliability are key values. Those who own these power amplifiers can put any worries about amplification to one side for a very long time! What the A4 conveys in terms of musical information is simply breathtaking! We encourage you to compare them to the top brands and then decide which delivery gives you the greater pleasure. The A4 amplifiers are extremely quick, controlled and powerful. They don’t force themselves onto the music, but rather support its flow and the listener’s involvement. The A4 mono-blocks deliver an output of more than 90 watts per channel into 4 ohms (55 watts into 8 ohms). This is a very conservative measurement, as with all VALVET amplifiers. We believe that you will not feel the need for more power for a long time. The A4 power amplifiers, in common with all other VALVET amplifiers, have an extremely stable power supply which gives them an excellent ability to deliver current, thus keeping even the most difficult speakers on the market on a tight leash. The A4 mono-blocks operate in Push-Pull pure Class A mode with just a single pair of transistors in the output stage. We believe that the common practice to employ several transistors in parallel required to produce a higher output is detrimental to the sound quality. A 300 VA toroidal transformer, 8 ultrafast 15A rectifier diodes plus more than 130.000 µF of filter capacitors (Mundorf’s Finest) per channel guarantee excellent performance. No capacitor in the pure silver wired signal path. "JUST PURE MUSIC!" The predecessor, the Valvet A3.5 monos (and the Valvet soulshine pre-amp) was StereoTimes’ Most Wanted Component Award winner 2009. Robert Learner of PFO wrote: "...smooth, dynamic, lively, and organic. Tonal purity suggests straight-wire gain with a dash of inner glow. Soundstaging is precise in localization... Transients have snap and life, and decays are full-blooded, something I’ve come to associate with Class A electronics versus some other designs. There is none of the sterility I’ve heard with some other solid-state amps... haven’t heard better for the money and certainly worse for more. These components have some magic, something past competence or even excellence and into the illusion of ’real’. You can find components that do this or that better in the price range, but none I’ve spent time with are as addictive. They get the essence of the music... The sound quality is not only that good, it’s that true—park them on your rack for the next ten years and find other things to worry about." Key Kim of StereoTimes wrote: "...from the very first notes on the very first album, it was obvious that the Valvet combo was something special. In our age of hyper-priced imported components, it’s not just good sounding (even at just over $11k) The Valvet components are the real deal regardless of price.... They are giant-killers in that they provide the ultimate musical bliss without breaking one’s bank account. If you’re looking for that really great sounding system that isn’t stratospherically priced, then look no further than Valvet..." For more info check out our webpage: CLICK HERE Here only a few testimonials from US customers: "...after over a week of listening and comparing, I can honestly state that Valvet equipment has the performance to beat. I don’t know if I had mentioned to you that I own a Pass Labs XA30.5 stereo amplifier, but that is what I compare amplifiers against, and I can confidently state that Valvet has the better amplifier...I compared back and forth between the Pass Labs unit and the Valvet A3.5 mono-blocks using the same sources, same preamp (my Valvet), even the same cabling, and time after time I selected the Valvets as having the better sound, staging, bass attack, and highs...Couldn’t be happier!" "...this evening I sat down to read the July/August 2011 edition of The Absolute Sound Magazine, and thought I’d put on some pleasant but mostly background music as I read. ’The most relaxing Jazz Piano music in the Universe’ by Denon. Just background stuff for when we have people over for dinner, etc. OK, disc two "Lover Man" with Sonny Stitt and Cedar Willams. The overall presence and (fill in every over the top audio review you have ever read) and the Vibraphone bloom and decay, etc. etc. made me put my beloved Absolute Sound down to e-mail you with my wholehearted appreciation for your having this, in my experience, the best audio value for power amps (with appropriate front end, cables and speakers) in the universe--tubes or solid state..." "...the A3.5’s continue to impress me with their ability to really convey the music and the performance on a wide range of music, vocals, and instruments. Truly amazing! I am very satisfied with this purchase and everything stated about them is absolutely spot on without any hype..." "...timbre, nuances, speed (bloom and decay), soundstage depth and width, dynamics and imaging were all spot on without being forced, etched or "driven" in the HiFi sense. I was somewhat skeptical that the relatively low rated wattage (A3.5 mono bocks) output would really do the job, but once installed, the volume setting on my preamp was very close if not slightly less that previously using tube amps rated at least twice as high and solid state amps rated four times as high in output wattage... Vocals (male and female) were rendered with more subtle shadings and were startling in the "you are there sense", bass is now much more "fleshed out" in all its potential in timbre and dynamics, snare drums, brushes, cymbals and top hats are extremely more involving and piano is rendered in a manner that I thought I could never reproduce in comparison to the real thing.... In short, I have moved from listening to music to experiencing the performance. An amazing feat of engineering from an individual who has not only the skills and intellect but the passion for music and this wonderful hobby/obsession called audio. Thanks again for making this wonderful amplifier available in the United States." "...I was very impressed (awesome). Compared to some way more expensive gear, the Valvets (soulshine & A3.5) held their own in an excellent way. And for what they cost, I have to scratch my head and wonder..."

The ACCUSTIC ARTS® AMP II – MK 2 The "classic" from ACCUSTIC ARTS The ACCUSTIC ARTS® AMP II is a real "classic" with the original version presented to the public as early as 1997 at the "STEREOPHILE Show" in San Francisco (US). This show was the premiere where the first series ACCUSTIC ARTS® devices were presented. Even then, listeners at this first show were impressed by the superb sound quality of the amplifier from ACCUSTIC ARTS®. The basic circuitry and design concept of the current AMP II – MK 2 is based on this original version. Naturally, over the years the AMP II – MK 2 has been and continues to be refined and improved. But, as you would expect with a "classic", the typical cubic housing design remains unchanged. In recent years the model has been recognised with numerous awards in many international hi-fi magazines and many testers today refer to the device as a "reference". The claim is therefore fully justified that the AMP II – MK 2 is one of the world's best output amplifiers in its class. Here is an example from the press: In its issue 12/2009, the German magazine "STEREO" rated the AMP II – MK 2 as a reference output stage and awarded the product the maximum points. At the same time, it described the value for money as "outstanding". "STEREO" wrote: "…an output stage for high quality music, suitable for universal use and compatible to all loudspeakers. […] And clearly an inside tip for music lovers as this is the first time it has been possible to upgrade to the class of the top references for output stages for such a reasonable price." Finest electronic components – finest sound The top priority in the development of the AMP II – MK 2 was a perfect signal feed with short distances using the finest components. The components are individually selected as this is the only way to realise the perfect measurement values which form the basis for the breathtakingly beautiful sound of this dynamic amplifier. The AMP II – MK 2 is a so-called "dual-mono power amplifier", i.e. apart from the common mains cable both channels are completely separated from each other – from the transformer to the output stage board. This ensures the excellent values, for example, for channel separation and signal to noise ratio, etc. The high performance and simultaneously extremely low distortion in the AMP II – MK 2 is achieved using 2 x 1100 VA transformers, a filtering capacity of 160 000 µF, 24 selected MOSFET output transistors and much more. The result of this substantial oversizing is that even when working under high loads, the components are never stretched to their limit of performance and therefore ensure the described excellent values. The AMP II – MK 2 works with Class A operation. And, despite its enormous power, the AMP II – MK 2 reproduces the finest details with extreme precision, in our opinion just as one would expect from a real reference product. Impressive circuitry concept – excellent measurement values The driver stage of the AMP II – MK 2 works on the principle of the current mirror. This circuit principle enables power to be drawn from an existing current. The AMP II – MK 2 is therefore a "power-controlled" output amplifier whereby the large number of MOSFET transistors ensure a very high current capacity without having to stretch the transistors to their performance limit. The AMP II – MK 2 is therefore also suitable for impedance critical or low-ohm loudspeaker systems. Ingenious circuitry removes the need for a servo controller for the "offset" and the quiescent current is generated via the IC or current mirror driver. As a result, direct and alternating current errors (DC and music signal errors) are immediately corrected. This means the total offset is exclusively determined by the quality and symmetry of the used ICs. The comment from the "STEREO" laboratory in the issue mentioned above was as follows: "High and stable performance level, extremely low distortion, high damping factor, good noise values and band width with extremely high channel separation". Highest operational safety Both output stage channels of the AMP II – MK 2 are equipped with a solid 12 kg heavy high performance heat sink which thanks to its special rib design serves to ensure a constant operating temperature of the MOSFET transistors. Even at full power there is no danger of overheating. An integrated control unit also permanently monitors operating conditions such as DC offset, temperature, clipping and high frequency. If a pre-defined value of one of these points is exceeded, the loudspeakers are immediately switched off to ensure the highest operational safety for the output amplifier and connected loudspeakers. German engineering ingenuity The AMP II – MK 2 is naturally "Handmade in Germany". All manufacturing processes for this product, from the development through to final assembly, are made in Germany. To conclude, we would like to quote "STEREO" once more: Test result: "The amplifier is a model of stability and precision while at the same time versatile and agile, making the product a textbook example of how to build an amplifier. Homogeneous, universally usable, virtually perfect. And for this high-end product, an unbelievably reasonable price".

PRISTINE CONDITION SHOW UNIT FULL 3 YEAR WARRANTY - AS NEW! The Absolute Sound Award Winner - Accustic Arts Germany Global Award Winning Products 6 MONTHS SAME AS CASH FINANCING AVAILABLE ! 1-2-3 YEARS SAME AS CASH FINANCING AVAILABLE! - 0% APR - NO FINANCE CHARGES What do the Reviewers have to say: THERE IS NO BETTER AUDIO PRODUCT AT ANY PRICE! 3 Year Warranty! COME VISIT OUR WORLD CLASS SHOWROOM IN SCOTTSDALE ARIZONA The ACCUSTIC ARTS® AMP I – MK 2 The ACCUSTIC ARTS® AMP I – MK 2 was presented in 2008 and is the successor generation of AMP I, our long-term audiophile "hit" which was manufactured almost without modification for 11 years. The current MK 2 version once again exploits the tried and tested circuitry technology of the AMP I and includes a number of improvements. The circuitry principle The AMP I – MK 2 is an audiophile stereo output amplifier with 4 powerful, selected MOSFET transistors respectively per channel. The driver stage works according to the principle of the current mirror. This circuit principle enables power to be drawn from an existing current. The AMP I is therefore a power-controlled output amplifier with the MOSFET transistors ensuring a very high current capacity. The AMP I – MK 2 is also suitable for impedance critical or low-ohm loudspeaker systems (up to 2 Ω). Ingenious circuitry removes the need for a servo controller for offset and quiescent current is generated via the IC (OPA606) or current mirror driver. As a result, direct and alternating current errors (DC and music signal errors) are immediately corrected. This means the total offset is exclusively determined by the quality and symmetry of the used ICs. The circuitry is also designed to minimise the signal paths and ensure that only the needed components are in the signal path. Only high quality components As one would naturally expect from ACCUSTIC ARTS®, only excellent quality components are used in the AMP I – MK 2. In order to ensure the highest fidelity sound, critical components for the sound quality are individually selected for the AMP I – MK 2, with some of the components manufactured according to our specifications and quality requirements. This includes, for example, the magnetically shielded and encapsulated toroidal transformer or power supply capacitors. Both components are naturally "Made in Germany". Highest operational safety The generously dimensioned high performance heat sinks inside the housing ensure a constant operating temperature of the 8 MOSFET transistors. Even at full power there is no danger of overheating. An integrated control unit also permanently monitors operating conditions such as DC offset, temperature, clipping and high frequency. If a pre-defined value of one of these points is exceeded, the loudspeakers are immediately switched off to ensure the highest operational safety for the output amplifier and connected loudspeakers. German engineering ingenuity The AMP I – MK 2 is naturally "Handmade in Germany". All manufacturing processes for this product, from the development through to final assembly, are made in Germany. AMP I - MK2 highlights Audiophile stereo power amplifier with high output performance; also suitable for less efficient, impedance critical and low ohm loudspeaker systems. 8 selected MOS-FET output transistors of highest quality Magnetically shielded and encapsulated 600 VA toroidal core transformer for high output reserves; separate windings for right and left channel Very good smoothing thanks to more than 80.000 µF power supply capacity; Premium quality capacitors ("Made in Germany") High damping factor for perfect speaker control Integrated protective circuit switches ascents off when clipping, HF oscillations or too high DC offset occurs Constant low operating temperature due to generously dimensioned heat sink integrated in housing Balanced input (XLR) and unbalanced input (RCA) – the inputs are switchable Very high quality, gold-plated speaker terminals Full metal housing for optimum shielding Also perfect for Super-Audio CD® (SACD) ACCUSTIC ARTS® AMP I - MK2 is "Handmade in Germany" Specifications Voltage gain: 31.0 dB Transformer power: approx. 600 VA (watts) Power supply capacity: more than 80,000 μF Input impedance: balanced (XLR): 2 x 20 kΩ unbalanced (RCA): 28 kΩ Rated power output: 2 x 210 watts on 4 Ω (THD+N = 0.1 %) 2 x 140 watts on 8 Ω Rise time / fall time: 3.6 μs with 4 Ω load (square-wave 20 kHz, 12 Vpp) Signal-to-noise-ratio: -98 dBA (ref. 6.325 V) Intermodulation distortion: 0.00019 % with 10 watts on 4 Ω Distortion factor: 0.007 % on 4 Ω load with 1 kHz and 10 watts (THD+N) 0.004 % on 8 Ω load with 1 kHz and 10 watts Damping factor: approx. 670 on 8 Ω Dimensions (H x W x D): 145 x 482 x 440 mm / 5.7 x 19 x 17.3 inches PRICE PROTECTION GUARANTEE Our 90 Day Price Protection Guarantee assures our clients of our continued commitment to full satisfaction and delight.

BMC AMP M2 Mono Power Amplifiers
Universally applicable as a classic 1 circuit final amplifier. With balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA input. In a B.M.C. chain a consistent short signal path using the DIGM volume/ amplification is advisable, controlled by DAC1, with the advantage that you do without both the signal attenuation and the senseless amplification. Through two unconnected mono final amplifiers the channel separation is unsurpassable. Tonal and technical crème de la crème: The balanced CI (current Injection) input which offers a further increase in the purity of the signal and thus the immediacy of the music reproduction by processing the original input current up to its arrival at the loudspeakers. All our amplifiers have one thing in common:In each of them potters a gigantic power pack with a 2 KW ring-core transformer. We have also made no economies anywhere else – as can be clearly seen. There has already been a mention of it but we don’t wish to deny you a look into the inside. For the sight of this is a sure indication of the elemental force with which our equipment goes to work. Power is, and remains, dependent on size. In order to make an impression on the Walls of Jericho, it takes something more than a soft humming.Natural distortion-free circuit concept in consistent format: 200 watts on 8 Ohm 380 watts on 4 OhmGigantic power pack with: 2kW ring-core transformerFrequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHzBandwidth: 2Hz - 180kHzS/N Ratio: 105db ~ 125dbTHD: 0.01%Damping Factor: 250Inputs Balanced: Balanced XLR + Balanced XLR-CI (current injection)Inputs Unbalanced: Unbalanced RCAInput Impedance: 50k Ohm to ground 100k Ohm differential at XLRInput Impedance, (CI) Current Injection Input: 1.5k Ohm serial at XLR-CI Input Sensitivity: Max. 750mV RCA Max. 1.5V XLRVolume Adjustment: DIGM in 66 precise 1db incrementsSpeaker Output: 1 pair with gold plated binding postsDimensions: 17.1" x 15.9" x 5.9" (WxDxH)Weight: 88 lbs. - We have 2 pairs of M2 mono amps available.- We also have BMC digital units available at similar savings.

Lyngdorf Audio TDAI 2170 Explosive Fireworks
Come Listen to the TDAI 2170 in Room 1125 at RMAF October 2nd thru the 4th. The TDAI 2170 comes with the best room correction software imaginable. Room Perfect fixes the bass in your room at the listening position, i.e. focus position or everywhere i.e. global. When I say it fixes the bass I mean working with the limits of your speakers and it's power the TDAI 2170 will provide the best bass response possible from your speakers. The TDAI 2170 also has a electronic crossover network built in so you can either provide a bigger amplifier for your woofers if needed or provide subwoofers and the 2170 will combine them perfectly. If your speakers sit in the corners or along the back wall of your listening room, room perfect will work with your speakers and provide as close to perfect impulse response which will give you proper phase and nearly perfect bass. There are other room correction products out there and I said that Room Perfect was the best and what I mean by best is that it doesn't try to make all speakers sound the same, Room Perfect analyzes your speakers in your room and determines your speakers anechoic frequency response charecteristics and maintains those characteristics for the mids and highs. That allows your speakers to keep thier natural sound in your listening room and still provide the best bass they are capable of regardless of your rooms natural acoustics. Other systems shoot for a flat frequency response which often changes the way your speakers sound so much that you will prefer their sound uncorrected on those systems. The TDAI 2170 is a true digital amplifier with built in DAC and it also has analog inputs. The highs on this amplifier are second to none as is the imaging with room perfect. The 2170 is simple to set up and gets great results. As you probably know there is a perception that tube preamps and power amps sound more musical than their solid state counterparts. The Sound of the all digital Lyngdorf amplifier easily surpasses the sound of traditional tube or solid state amplifiers. You don't have to take my word for it, stop by my listening room in Castle Rock Co for a listening session, it won't take yo long to hear the music and the way the Lyngdorf allows everything to sound better. If you're a serious customer and just need a listen to be conviced, I can send you my Demo unit to listen to for a week, trust me though you'll be convinced in an hour. Please contact me with questions or when you are ready to place your order. my email is email@example.com my phone is 720 308 4000 I'm Neal Van Berg www.soundsciencecat.com Oh yes the power output is 85 watts at 8 ohms and 170 at 4 ohms. At this price you get the fabulous USB input that will play DSD files or PCM. HDMI inputs and output as well as the upgraded Analog input. I recently had the opportunity to use my Lyngdorf TDAI 2170 with a pair Klipsch Cornwall Speakers. The transformation was amazing, they went from sounding like old horn speakers to something modern, no honk and very revealing. If you have a single driver speaker the TDAI 2170 will enhance what it does right and fix what it doesn't do so right. I can easily power my King Sound full range King speakers with the TDAI 2170.

The MONO II is based on the legendary AMP II, which enjoys worldwide popularity. The typical, cube-like timeless ACCUSTIC ARTS® design of the housing with its Bauhaus style is now continued with the MONO II. The slim design of the housing makes MONO II excellently suited to positioning near to loudspeakers.The ACCUSTIC ARTS® DNA:thorough development and best components = wonderful sound experienceAs is usual at ACCUSTIC ARTS®, during the development of the MONO II a high priority was the perfect signal feed with short distances and the use of the finest components. The printed circuit boards are only populated with components with very narrow tolerances. Selected components relevant for the sound are even tested manually to achieve an even higher selection standard. This effort is necessary to realise the technically perfect measurement values which form the basis for the exceptional sound experience of this amplifier.The MONO II is purely a mono output amplifier. This guarantees the best values, e.g. with channel separation and signal to noise ratio as each channel has its own housing. Particular care was taken with the materials used in the MONO II to enable high performance with extremely low distortion. For example, the 1200 VA strong toroidal transformer made in Germany is manufactured from a special core, is encapsulated and additionally protected with Mu metal shielding. Eight enormous power supply capacitors manufactured in Germany to our specifications with a respective individual capacity of 10.000 µF supply 12 carefully selected MOSFET output transistors with perfect direct current. This means at full load the used components are hardly pushed to their performance limits and therefore with understatement ensure a carefree, agile acoustic pattern. In most application cases the MONO II works in so-called CLASS A mode. The MONO II is able to effortlessly play back a deep, powerful bass sound and at the same time reproduce fine details and is therefore quite rightly a product of our reference series. Solid and proven technology – built to lastAs with all ACCUSTIC ARTS® amplifiers, the driver stage of the MONO II works on the proven principle of the current mirror. This circuit principle enables power to be drawn from an existing current. The MONO II is therefore a "power-controlled" output amplifier whereby the large number of MOSFET transistors ensures a very high current capacity without having to stretch the transistors to their performance limit. The MONO II is therefore also suitable for impedance critical or low-ohm loudspeaker systems. Ingenious circuitry removes the need for a servo controller for the "offset" and the quiescent current is generated via the IC or current mirror driver. As a result, direct and alternating current errors (DC and music signal errors) are immediately corrected. This means the total offset is exclusively determined by the quality and symmetry of the used ICs.Each MONO II has a generously dimensioned cooling surface which ensures a constant operating temperature of the MOSFET transistors. Even at full load there is never the danger of overload as the integrated control unit continually monitors the operating states of DC offset, temperature, clipping and high frequency. If a pre-defined value of one of these parameters is exceeded, the loudspeaker outputs are immediately switched off. This ensures the highest operational reliability for the output amplifier and the connected loudspeakers at all times.The generous dimensions of the components and the use of proven technology means the MONO II will give its owner many years of listening pleasure. If, however, a problem should ever arise, the ACCUSTIC ARTS® service with its reputation for quality will be happy to assist you.Our promise: Handmade in Germany"Handmade in Germany" is part of the ACCUSTIC ARTS company philosophy and so naturally the MONO II is also exclusively made in our manufacturing facility in Lauffen am Neckar, Germany. The development, component insertion of PCBs and final assembly takes place in Germany and all housing parts and many individual components are sourced from long-term suppliers based in the south of Germany. Our specially trained and experienced technicians build this high-end audiophile amplifier from a large number of individual components.

$3,700 Conrad-Johnson MF-2500A Solid State Power Amplif...
$3,700 Conrad-Johnson MF2500A Solid State Power Amplifier The Conrad-Johnson name is one of the most legendary and desirable names in high-end audio gear. They are especially known for their amps, both solid state and tube amps. This unit is a 250 watt per channel stereo solid state design that we're selling on consignment for a long time customer. He's a professor who takes very good care of his gear and uses it only lightly. He has multiple systems and actually a lot of his listening is done with headphones to avoid disturbing family members. He had this amp to drive his B & W 802D Diamond series loudspeakers, which we also have for sale. But then he got a Bryston amp so that he could enjoy balanced XLR connections. Click "More from this seller" above to see those other items for sale. So this sweet amp has just been sitting in storage. Now he also has us selling the Brystoin because he's bought McIntosh MC601's from us. You can pick this CJ up for $1,800 or less than a sixth of what those McIntosh amps run! This is under half the retail price and below the private party blue book despite the fact you're getting it from a dealer. And we've tested it and it sounds great. We hope you'll find this to be an excellent price from a trusted dealer with 100% perfect feedback since Audiogon began. We also have perfect feedback score on Ebay as well as, over 1,400, from selling this type of gear. You may feel free to make a lower offer and it will be considered but the way we do consignments is that we're not going to sell to lower offers right away, we're going to do our best to get our customer his asking price. If we were selling your gear we'd do the same for you! So if you think you can buy this for less then please by all means make your offer and it will be considered in the order received and maybe you will win. Naturally, if someone offers the asking price then that person will be the lucky one who gets to enjoy this amp in his or her listening room going forward and I really do suspect the seller can get his asking price. This amp sounds very tube like, but without the roll off in the bass you'd experience in a tube amp at this price point. It's very listenable, I agree with the reviewer about it not sounding bright or harsh as many solid state amps from this range do. This was a very, very solid accomplishment from the engineers at CJ and our customer really loved it. He had a very hard time parting with it even though he has not been actually using it anymore. It's just one of those products that you fall in love with and then you don't want to be without even once you have reached a level of success of being able to afford much more expensive gear. But finally when we delivered his new McIntosh MC601 Mono Blocks he agreed to let us take and sell the CJ. He's still using the CJ preamp and digital front end that he bought at the same time as this even though he has spent a fortune on system upgrades since that time. He just hasn't found anything for him that sounds enough better than what the Conrad-Johnson components of this era sounded like. And while I would of course love to sell him something newer as his dealer, I clearly have a vested finanical interest in that, both selling him the new item and then consigning the old one. But I respect his point of view not to buy something new just because it's new and to keep really well made components that you love. I have components much older than this one still in daily use in my systems and I have sold on things that are far newer that I could have kept. So I get it. What finally did get him to agree to let us sell this is that he's bought a whole bunch of upgrades. He had bought the Salon2's from us a while back but now he also bought the McIntosh MC601 mono Block amplifiers, beautiful Verastarr granite amp stands for them to go on, a Timbernation rack for his other gear, Stillpoints Ultra feet for everything, some more Revels for his office and now he is finishing out the upgrades with Verastarr Grand Illusion power cords and interconnects. So it's a lot and we encouraged him to let us sell this sweet big amp and let him recoup some money toward all that. Not only that but to let another audiophile draw pleasure from this piece. It's a shame to just have it stored in the closet! It's such a well made piece of gear. I've really enjoyed listening to this CJ. It's a very sweet sounding amp. I haven't pushed it hard at all, cranked up a little Pink Floyd but never felt like I was driving it hard and it never got hot. While it does have some cosmetic flaws which are detailed below it is still a really handsome amp. I like the styling on this one better than some of the newer CJ's actually. Some of them got a little too fancy shmancy for me. I like the simple, manly look of this one. Comes with original box, manual, and captive power cord. We ship worldwide but we do not offer power conversion on this item so you'd be looking at getting your own conversion done or running it through a stepdown transformer if you want to use it in a 230V country. The following MF2500A Description and Specifications are a compilation from the manual and the Conrad Johnson website: "The overall circuits in these amplifiers used a combination of FETs, and bi-polar transistors. FETs were chosen for the gain stage because like tubes and unlike bipolars, they produce almost no strident odd-order harmonics. Bi-polar devices were specified for the output stages of these amplifiers for their low output impedance, resulting in improved bass response. Specifications: Power Output: MF2500A – 250 watts per channel. All deliver their power from 20Hz to 20KHz at no more than 1% THD and IM, both channels driven into 8 ohms. Distortion: less than .1% THD or IMD Frequency Response: 20Hz to more than 20kHz , +0, -.5dB Hum & Noise: 100 dB below full power output Input impedence: 100K ohms Mechanical: MF2500A 19" X 6 ¾" X 16" Martin Colloms reviewed the Conrad-Johnson MF2500 Power Amplifier for Stereophile. This one for sale is the upgraded MF2500A version which provides slightly more power and better sound so the review is not of the same exact model but we felt that it was close enough to include. If you would like to read his whole review you may do so here. "Technical story Like many Conrad-Johnson designs, the MF2500's higher performance goals have been attained through experience and the refinement of established circuits, not by some magic new topology that's claimed to solve all previously known audio-fidelity problems. Thus the input stage is a standard differential circuit executed with FETs. The second stage comprises a buffered voltage-gain amplifier, and uses bipolar transistors. It drives a regular class-A/B push-pull bipolar output stage, which is direct-coupled to the speaker..... The MF2500's regulation topology is of Premier quality. For example, the input stage has its own transformer tap stabilized at a voltage higher than the output stage requirement. Discrete open-loop regulators have audiophile-grade polystyrene and polypropylene capacitors. Only the main current reservoirs are electrolytic, but here there is no choice. Voltage-reference and feedback-control resistors are costly metal-foil Vishays. Six 10,000µF Nichicon electrolytics form the central reservoirs for both channels, giving a total of 30,000µF per DC supply phase and ensuring good current delivery at low frequencies. ... It is finished in satin-black textured enamel. The baseplate can be removed to access the underside of the printed circuit board. The only control is a front-panel power switch, and there's no soft start. The heavy transformer is affixed to the right side of the chassis, while the single, external, full-size finned heatsink is to the left. The inputs are single-ended phono sockets, the outputs 5-way binding posts, all gold-plated. Thermal protection is via a self-resetting thermal trip circuit. The power cord is a captive three-core type. ""Listening In some respects, the MF2500 gave an understated view of musical events—with casual listening it's possible to dismiss it on grounds of a lack of forthrightness for its rather measured pace, and an almost rich, distant presentation. Yet, over the long term, and along with its even-tempered if slightly sweet tonal balance, it was the very absence of a forced or excitable character, false hardness, or excessive attack that endeared the MF2500 to me. There was a sense of ease; aural fatigue was significantly lower than usual for this class of amplifier. Just when I thought I'd got about as much out of the MF2500 as I was going to get, it got better by stages. Within that slightly "relaxed" temperament, the MF2500 nevertheless managed to pack quite a punch—this is a bighearted amplifier, and sounds it. As it continued to break-in and I grew more familiar with its balance, musical values asserted themselves. Pace, rhythm, and timing, plus dynamic resolution, were all rated significantly above average. ".... "Conclusion Conrad-Johnson's MF2500 is a successful product on many grounds. It closely approaches the classic tonal character of a fine tubed amplifier—a C-J hallmark—and holds on to that quality over a great range of output power and possible speaker loading. Not easy to accomplish. It also avoids the cheap, quick thrill of a bright, fast, forward sound. Instead, it builds on quality and depth of performance to achieve its commendable rating. Its sound is musically entertaining without being hyperactive, while its broad, bighearted approach is easy on the ears. All kinds of music were handled with equanimity. In the lab, the MF2500's high output power and good load tolerance were confirmed. The amplifier could dump up to 900Wpc into 2 ohm loads for short-term peaks, and cruise happily at around 300Wpc driving 8 ohm loads. This matches the attainment of significantly more costly amplifiers. Except for the modest channel separation at high frequencies, no test result gave rise to concern. Well-built and well-finished, with effective if old-fashioned circuit protection, the MF2500 idled at quite low power and could be safely left on for extended listening periods. This musically well-balanced powerhouse represents fine dollar value, and wins a warm recommendation." We have created this photo montage to give you an idea of some of the beautiful and fantastic sounding consignment gear that we have up for sale on Audiogon. Our business mainly consists of helping our clients to make the biggest possible upgrades to their systems given their tastes and budget. Then we order them the gear they want. Usually that leaves them with an old piece of gear they no longer need themselves but which is still a very nice piece of gear for someone. Increasingly, clients are turning to us to sell their old gear. Everything in this montage is for sale now or else it just sold. So please click: "More from this Seller" above to see all our other listings. We have wonderful things from Audio Research, Grant Audio, Bryston, Conrad Johnson, BlackNote and more. Plus, there's more info below about how to consign with us in case you have high end gear you don't need anymore and you're too busy to sell it, too famous to sell it, or whatever the case may be. We'd be pleased to discuss it with you. While I love talking with all the people from around the world who contact us about our sales a lot of our customers have told me that they either don't feel they have time to do it, they don't feel safe doing it themselves because they are too well known, or they just feel as if they'd rather focus on what they are best at and let us sell their gear for them. obviously if you make hundreds of dollars an hour (or more) at your profession then it makes more economic sense that you focus on that and leave selling your leftover gear to us. We're honored to have all this beautiful gear entrusted to us. We test it all thoroughly so that means we get to listen to it here in our own facilities and that is something we love to do. And as a Buyer, you really get the best of both worlds when you buy these consignment items. You get the safety of buying from a trusted dealer who will support you with your purchase long after the sale is completed, which you won't get buying from regular Audiogon sellers. But you get the same cheap pricing that you could get buying from a private seller. High End Zone is a family business. Stef and Heather are the parents, Isaac is our 14 year old son. Heather does the photography, specs, selling policies and reviews with help from Isaac, who is away at Duke University participating in a writing camp but helped on these listings before he left. The back of this unit has a blem area that I would like to point out. As with all the blems on this unit, they do not detract from the power of the amplifier and are out of sight, however, they are there if you look from the correct angle. The back of the fin area has some scratches. The sides of the fins look great. The right side looks good overall, you can see a small nick at about the middle of the top ridge if you look for it, but generally good overall. As you look more closely at the right side, at different angles and in different light, several scratches do appear. This unit comes with the original box, attached power cord, manual and the some originally accompanied brochures. The faceplate is free from any noticeable flaws. Feel free to contact us if you need to upgrade any of your cables, Tranquility Bases or other items in your system to the current spec at the same time through email at Sales@HighEndZone.com or by phone at 575.535.2280 and we'll be happy to assist you with a package deal for everything that you need. Thank you. We have disabled the "Buy it Now" button on Audiogon because we had a whole run of people 2 years ago who agreed to buy then didn't pay. We prefer to do business the old fashioned way where we exchange emails like gentlemen and conduct a smooth and safe transaction for all parties. Because we don't own this we cannot take much less than the asking price for it. If you make us a low offer there is no way I am going to go to this gentleman and tell him that I have a low offer, that so and so really wants it but his wife won't let him spend more than X amount for it. I'll just ignore the lowball offer and wait til a better one comes in. However, if you want to buy this together with some other items, as part of a package deal, then that would be something we can discuss. Just let me know what items you want. If you are the one who decides to purchase this item, thank you and enjoy! Our full store policies are included below the pictures, but for now I would like to let you know about a few of them. For payment, we are happy to accept a cashier's check, a bank wire or PayPal. If PayPal is your preferred payment method then please add the following percentage of your purchase and shipping price to your total to cover the PayPal fees: 3% for domestic buyers or 4% for international buyers. Also, since this is a consignment sale where the equipment does not belong to us but to our customer, we need to ask that the buyer promptly inspect and test the item upon receipt and report any problems found so that if there is a problem found we could withhold funds from paying our customer to deal with the problem. We don't think there will be any problem, but once we have paid him we won't have any recourse if any problem is found. So, please take the time to unpack and test as soon after the equipment arrives as possible. Our policy states that we will hear from you within 10 days of receipt if any discrepancy is found. However, what we really want is to receive your email saying how much this enhances your listening experience right away, just as soon as possible so that we know you are satisfied. But if there is any problem at all then we want to hear about that right away as well, so that we can make it right for you and make this a successful transaction for all concerned! Also, because we're selling this for a client and have to give him the cash for it, we're not going to take trades unless you make us some trade offer that we consider to be so far in our favor that we can't resist putting in our own money to buy your gear. An exception to this that we would be willing to consider would be that if you want to buy this AND some other items that we sell then we'll try and make you a package deal for all of it. Since this is not ours we cannot discount it much, but we can give you an extra discount on other items we sell to make you a package deal. So if you want some Lansche speakers or Ypsilon amps or any of the many other things we sell, which are listed below, then please email us. We would be happy to sell your gear on consignment if that would help you to purchase this or other items from the High End Zone. In some cases we might sell your gear on consignment even if you don't want to buy more gear from us, if the gear is very nice. Our most successful customers are very busy folks and we understand that if they spend hours answering questions from Audiogoners, that is thousands of dollars that they lost in terms of what they could have earned with that time. We do have some restrictions as to what we can sell because of the manufacturer rules about online sales and so on, but we do our best to help. We can arrange to have the gear picked up from your home or office, or in some cases we can even have someone come in and pack it for you. Then we will handle all the testing, photography, sales of the item and follow up after the sale. Since many people prefer to buy from a dealer and because we have 12 years of perfect feedback on Audiogon and Ebay with no neutrals or negatives ever we can usually get more for your items than you could get yourself. Depending on the exact item, you may net as much or even slightly more having us sell it. And once you factor in the value of your time, it's a clear savings to let us sell the gear for you. So let us know if we can be of service to you in that area. We are truly appreciative of responsible Audiogon members, please make sure you are one of them before you make us an offer. If you have questions concerning the gear, the terms of sale, or if you need to upgrade any of your cables, Tranquility Bases or other items in your system to the current spec, please contact us through email or by phone at 575.535.2280. We will be happy to get back with you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your interest and may our gear help facilitate your ears meeting high quality sound with ease.

The High End Zone is all about listening to good music, talking to clients around the world by email, and helping people get the most joy out of the time and money they invest in their high-end audio and theater hobbies. If you're a successful individual, you and your family should be able to enjoy beautiful music and video in your home affordably, and the buying process should be fun, not a chore. We're dedicated to that and I hope we get the chance to sell you something that you and your family can enjoy together for a long time in good health, just as my family and I enjoy our several high-end audio and video systems! Thank you for your interest, please do not hesitate to email us with your questions at Sales@HighEndZone.com or give us a call at 575.535.2280. The Fine Print: We accept payment by PayPal and wire transfers from anywhere in the world and cashier's checks drawn on US banks. We will also accept escrow if the buyer pays the fee. If PayPal is your preferred payment method, then please add the following percentage of your purchase and shipping price to your total to cover the PayPal fees: 3% for domestic buyers and 4% for International buyers. If you pay by PayPal then your purchase must be shipped to the PayPal shipping address only, per PayPal's rules. We may accept a personal check from long-standing Audiogon members, but it does delay shipping for clearance. Please ask before paying that way. If you desire to pay by some other means you do not see here then please email us, we will try to accommodate you if we can. Our items are guaranteed to work properly and be in the condition we describe. If we make a mistake, if an item does not work properly, or if the item description is inaccurate, we'll offer you a full and prompt refund or exchange at our option and issue return shipping labels at our expense. Please check your purchases promptly upon arrival. In general, our policy is that any flaw, damage, missing item, incorrect item, etc. must be reported to High End Zone by email no later than 3 days (72 hours) after that item is delivered. If you are not able to check the item yourself in that time frame, please make the necessary arrangements to have someone else make such a check for you in your absence. All sales are final with no returns or exchanges allowed unless the buyer finds a defect and reports it to High End Zone within 72 hours after delivery. See below for special note on delays due to customs on international shipments. If the buyer finds a defect and reports it to High End Zone by email within 72 hours after the item is delivered then High End Zone will repair, replace, or refund at our option. In rare cases we have allowed a return to happen for a 20% restocking fee. Any item that is returned to us due to any reason other than the item not working properly or not in the condition we describe, the buyer will be charged a 20% restocking fee. This includes sales where the buyer "changes his mind", where his wife beats him over the head for spending too much money, where some unforeseen crisis, financial or otherwise, strikes the buyer, his family, his friends/ business/ job/ pets/ favorite sports team/ etc. or any other reason that the buyer may seek to cancel the sale or return the item for some reason other than a mistake or discrepancy on the High End Zone's part. And this includes cases where the buyer changes his mind and wants to cancel the sale before he even receives the item, possibly before we even ship it. We are a small company and the moment a buyer commits to purchase one of our items we are redeploying our capital to get other items for our customers to buy. If you decide 2 hours or 2 minutes after you buy something that you don't want it anymore, chances are we've already spent the money to restock. So the restocking fee absolutely applies in all cases of buyers changing their minds, wanting to cancel a sale after it is agreed or returning an item for any reason other than High End Zone providing a flawed or incorrect item. This does not mean that we will agree to accept a return or to allow for the cancelation of an order where a buyer changes his mind. An order is a contract to purchase and we are setting aside the goods for you the moment you order them. You would never want us to accept a higher offer after we accepted yours and sell the goods to someone else, and we would never do that. By the same token, we expect you to follow through on what you have contractually promised to do and to pay for your item as agreed. So for example, if a buyer who used PayPal were to apply to PayPal for a refund because he changed his mind about purchasing an item, then IF we did give that refund it would be less the 20% restock fee. So the moral of the story is, if you're not sure you want it, just don't buy, wait until you actually are sure, and then buy. It's the same as if you're going to buy a house, you don't sign the contract til you and your wife are sure you want the house and can afford it. I feel like an idiot for having to say this but we have had a number of people who think "I changed my mind." or "My wife says I can't buy the amp." just magically gets them out of a contract they agreed to with us. With no consideration that we have incurred costs above and beyond the listing fees. By taking it off the market we may have lost potentially perfect buyers and we will have to spend more on listings fees and so on. So, we have to be strict about this and ask that buyers please be conscientious here. We charge low margins, that's only possible if people follow through and pay for items as agreed. So while all sales are final and there are no refunds or exchanges unless you receive a defective item and report that within 3 days as specified above, IF for some reason we do agree to accept your return or cancel your order when there is no mistake or defect on High End Zone's part, then you agree to pay us the 20% restocking fee on your order. In the case of items that are shipped internationally the buyer is responsible to make sure the item clears customs in a timely manner. We've had cases where buyers waited a long time to pay their customs bill, delaying the release of the item. The trouble with that is we need to know promptly if there is any problem with your item so that we can file a shipping claim if needed or withhold payment from a consignor or a supplier on a defective item, etc. So we now require that any item be picked up from Customs within 5 business days or less in order to preserve the buyer's protections for shipping damage and defective merchandise under our selling policies. We discourage the use of Postal Mail as it may be harder to meet this deadline using that shipping method. Generally FedEx will clear items within one business day. We can sometimes make an exception to some of the above policies if you change your mind in order to buy something else that we can sell you that costs more. For example, if you make a deal to buy a JL f113 from us and then you decide that what you REALLY want is a Gotham g213, then we can probably work it out to make that switch for you without a restocking fee. That said, please don't buy if you're not sure that you want the item you are buying. If you need to check with your wife, your broker, your business partner, your kids, or the Supreme Court before you buy, please do that. The High End Zone cannot be held responsible for any case of wives beating their husbands for spending too much money on good gear! The High End Zone is a full service home theater dealer located in Southwest New Mexico. While we are well established as the premier dealer in our small town market, we also serve many clients who have multiple homes or live in far-flung places. The world is increasingly a small place and I delight in talking with and serving clients from all continents and many countries of the world. Depending on your needs we are happy to just sell you gear (note some manufacturers may prohibit us from sending gear to certain places) or we can provide a full service experience including system design, acoustic design and construction, installation, programming, and more. We've done work for very high profile clients with multiple homes and we are also proud to serve many hobbyists who enjoy this hobby on a modest budget. No matter your budget, we'll strive to provide the products you want at a price that is fair with top shelf service. Some of the many lines we sell include, but are not limited to: AB Amps Acoustic Sciences Corporation ASC Tube Traps AMX Audio Desk Axonix B.M.C. Capriccio Continuo (ATD) Cineak Crestron Da-Lite screens Daniel Hertz (ultimate audio creations of Mr. Mark Levinson) Denon Dragonfly screens Einstein Escient Extreme Media Servers Finite Elemente Furman Golden Acoustics Hartvig HB Cable Design Ikeda Isoclean JBL JBL Synthesis Kaleidescape Key Digital Lansche Lexicon Lutron Mark Levinson Marantz McIntosh Middle Atlantic Millenium Mozaex Paradigm Parasound PHC (Professional Home Cinema) Polk Audio Revel Runco Salamander Scaena Screen Excellence Screen Innovations SE2 Labs Silverline Audio Stage III Stewart Film Screens Tandem Thales Transparent Cables Tru-Audio Velodyne Verastarr Vidikron Wireworld Ypsilon *List includes lines we are factory direct with as well as lines we get through distribution or through our extensive dealer network. Most customers don't care whether we are factory direct if we provide authentic product and great service at a fair price, but if you care about this or any other issue, please ask us. Unlike most shops that sell a very small number of lines that they are authorized for and will always try and talk customers in to buying just those few lines, we are willing to sell you virtually any line that you want. Obviously we make a lower profit if we have to get it from another dealer, but our goal is to provide you, the customer, with one stop shopping and top notch service. It's more like the business model of Amazon than the old school brick and mortar stores. We want the customer's business and we will try and earn it by providing competitive pricing and top notch service for you on whatever brands you want. Of course if you are not sure what brands are best for your needs and want us to provide expert analysis of what gear represents the best value for your dollar, we are more than happy to provide that too. We spend a great deal of time and money listening to and viewing a wide range of audio and video systems, as well as bringing in gear for long-term testing in our facilities. Most of the salesmen you might deal with in a home theater store do NOT have a high-end audio video system in their homes. I have 4 such systems, including Runcos in every nook and cranny, and I live with this stuff daily. So I truly know what works well and what is worth spending money on and what is not. And even if I used something for years and loved it, when I hear something better, that is a better value, I switch immediately. My main loyalty is to the customer and your satisfaction--I want you to buy not just one thing from us, but all your gear, for life, and to recommend us to your friends and family. To that end, I will strive to give you the best and most honest advice, fair prices and great service. And I'll try to get you any brand you want, ultimately your system needs to satisfy you, not me. Our clients certainly enjoy their home audio and video rooms. We do as well and hope you'll also take pleasure and be inspired by the variety of these beautiful installations. Some aspects of making an informed choice in an audiophile grade listening room or a home theater system are worth a little extra effort. We invite you to contact the High End Zone for help in making your choices, we will make the extra effort worthwhile.

Comes complete, like new, original box, accessories, and a full 3 years of warranty in your name/address that begins when it arrives at your door! Mint Condition. 9/10 See pictures. Just like new. Add 4% for PayPal. The Evolution 402e is the flagship stereo amplifier in the Evolution e Series utilizing the same technological advances as in the larger Evolution monaural amplifiers. The Evolution 402e is an extremely powerful stereo amplifier with the distinct advantage of a smaller footprint. As in its larger siblings, the Evolution 402e combines this power with a modest 2 watt power draw when in standby mode. Perfectly matched with an Evolution 202 preamplifier for stereo application, the Evolution 402e also shines as part of a home theater. In this application, the Evolution 402e gets mated with the Evolution 707 Reference Surround Preamplifier/Processor and an Evolution 403e Three Channel Amplifier for ultimate home theater performance.The Evolution 402e is equipped with two 2,200 VA transformers and 188,000μF of capacitance. This power source is the backbone for the output of the Evolution 402e. With this foundation, the Evolution 402e delivers 400 watts into 8 Ohms, 800 watts into 4 Ohms, and 1,600 watts into 2 Ohms with both channels driven simultaneously. The FTC mandates that power ratings are quoted using a 1,000 Hz sine wave into a fixed 8 Ohm resistor with final power specification stated at 1% distortion. Krell engineering considers this specification too lenient and not indicative of what an amplifier is required to provide. Krell designs to a much stricter standard. Our power tests use a 20-20,000Hz signal into 8, 4, and 2 Ohm loads with our final specifications stated for .1% distortion.Internal high-current line conditioning circuitry effectively blocks RF noise entering via the AC line and compensates for any asymmetry or DC offset in the power waveforms. The amplifiers' low level and gain stages are powered via multi regulated rails that provide total immunity from supply fluctuations and assure noise-free circuit operation. Primary rail voltages are quasi-regulated, enabling an "on-demand" supply of power that is highly responsive to dynamic load.Krell's Active Cascode Topology™ is a significant departure from traditional amplifier circuits where the positive and negative rail voltages are each applied entirely across a single row of transistors. High voltage swing and gain requirements dictate that the transistors be "pushed" into non-linear operating regions and, in some cases, dangerously close to breakdown. Krell topology divides the full voltage swing across multiple rows of transistors, and all devices are active-biased (i.e., they all carry the audio signal). Because individual transistors in the cascode array "see" only a proportional fraction of the rail voltage, they operate in a region that provides optimum linearity, gain, and safety. And because the devices are not being pushed to their limits, the amplifier runs cooler and more reliably. The improved linearity and stability greatly reduces the need for negative feedback, which is known to cause sonic degradation. Krell Evolution power amplifiers use only 14 dB of feedback throughout the topology-a small fraction of the amount implemented in typical designs.Krell Active Cascode Topology™ offers several performance advantages. It breaks through bandwidth limitations of conventional designs and delivers very high current. The usable bandwidth of an Evolution 402e is 300 kHz; triple the bandwidth of a typical high performance amplifier. The result is near perfect performance in the audible range with no phase anomalies typical of lower bandwidth designs. Because the "work" is spread across multiple devices, the amplifier is more load tolerant. Open-loop output impedance is extremely low-about one hundred times lower than with most power amplifiers-ensuring exceptional speaker control. All of these performance gains are achieved while maintaining a high rail voltage, which provides a beneficial "flywheel" effect-a de facto regulation that enables the amplifier to better deal with sudden changes in power requirement, such as those caused by large signal transients.Evolution amplifiers feature Krell CAST technology. CAST is a unique circuit and connection breakthrough that eliminates distortions inherent in voltage based amplification. A complete Evolution (source, preamplifier, and amplifier) system, connected with CAST interconnects reduces the number of voltage gain stages to the minimum, one. The resulting noise floor is approaching the theoretical limit of technology. Emanating from a completely black background, music explodes from absolute silence moving the listener closer to the goal of recreating the live musical event in the listening room.Frequency Response 20 Hz to 20 kHz +0, -0.17 dB<0.5 Hz to 125 kHz +0, -3 dBSignal to Noise Ratio>108 dB, wide band,unweighted, referred to full power output>118 dB, "A"-weightedGain25.4 dBTotal Harmonic Distortion<0.02% at 1 kHz, at 400 W, 8 Ohms<0.15% at 20 kHz, at 400 W, 8 OhmsInput ImpedanceSingle Ended: 100 kOhmsBalanced: 200 kOhmsCAST: 70 OhmsInput SensitivitySingle Ended or Balanced: 3.04 V rmsCAST: 3.04 mA rmsOutput Power400 W RMS at 8 Ohms both channels driven800 W RMS at 4 Ohms both channels driven1600 W RMS at 2 Ohms both channels driven Output Voltage160 V peak-to-peak57 V RMSOutput Current37 A peakSlew Rate100 V/µsOutput Impedance<0.055 Ohms at 20 Hz<0.064 Ohms, 20 Hz to 20 kHzDamping Factor (referred to 8 ohms)>145 at 20 Hz, referred to 8 Ohms>125, 20 Hz to 20 kHz, referred to 8 OhmsTransformersTwo 2200 VA (4400VA total) for audio circuitryOne 10 VA for digital control circuitryPower Supply Capacitance188,000 µFPower ConsumptionStandby: 2 W(High-current standby: 260WIdle: 390 WMaximum: 3800 W Heat OutputStand-by: 7 BTU/hr.(High-current standby: 890 BTU/hr.)Idle: 1300 BTU/hr.Maximum: 6400 BTU/hr.Inputs2 single-ended via RCA connector2 balanced via XLR connector2 CAST via 4-pin bayonet connectorOutputs2 pairs Krell binding postsDimensions17.25 in.

PRICE REDUCTION! Split Shipping! Shipping will cost 120.00 but willing to split cost, will ship to CONUS for $60. Immediate payment via PayPal OR Money Order (please rush ship money order). Reserve the right to cancel this ad, just listed on e Bay. Shipping to continental U.S. only. Buyer pays PayPal Fee, 3.5%. Buyer pays 1/2 shipping or $60.00 This amp has a lot of stellar reviews. It double downs from 8 ohm to 4 ohm, 200 watts to 400 watts. Search the net for more detail. I do not see any dings or scratches. This looks like a 9 but to be conservative I listed as an 8. See pics, I do see fingerprints but those can be cleaned off. At the listed price, I will include the Audio Horizons 'More Than a Fuse'. This fuse adds texture to instruments and voices. I will include the original fuse as well. Lower price eliminates the upgraded fuse. The AH fuse also also has stellar reviews. Audio Horizons can be found by searching within Audiogon. At the listed price I will also include a PS Audio power cord. I do not have the original power cord. Included is the original shipping carton which is in excellent shape. Also included is the original cloth like protective wrap to help protect the amp during shipment. Good Luck and thanks for looking.
