OK guys, I'm selling the mighty Romulus. Not an easy decision to make.
For those not in the know the Romulus is a 35wpc valve integrated amp. Mine is the mark III version, bought just last year from the Emporium. It's in very good condition with a few inconsequential scratches to the wonderful finish.
You'll find a great review here: http://www.soundstage.com/revequip/c...ts_romulus.htm and I know that Jerry also owned one for a while and raved about it.
It's yours for £650 including a full complement of valves, plus an almost new set of Full Music 2xECC83 and 2xECC82s (these cost me a shade over £100) (it takes three ECC83s, but unfortunately I got a duff one!).
Why am I selling? Well I recently treated myself to a lovely new pair of speakers, which are much more sensitive than those they replaced and the Romulus barely makes it past go before it's too loud. A scrawny valve amp this is not! The sound is wonderful by the way - detailed, pacey, and coherent.
I can post it. But I warn you - it's a heavy old beastie! I'm guessing post will cost about £40... I could bring to Central London if I had to.
