  1. UPS include amplifiers up to £2.5k, apparently. They don’t offer insurance, as such - they accept liability up to the declared value (subject to limits, and the exclusion of certain types of item). The amount of issues with the major couriers is very low. But some of those mentioned above are best avoided. There are third party insurers you can use.
  2. If it helps I bought and sold my SEs for £3.5k. I think that’s about the right money. As someone else mentioned they were about £9k new (and pretty chunky discounts could be had).
  3. I’m looking for a couple of pairs of good 6SN7. The pairs do different jobs in the amp so I can mix and match different pairs - I don’t need the pairs to be the same. So I’ll consider offers of two or four valves. If you have any surplus to requirements let me know. Thanks.
  4. These amps have broken records for number of enquiries received without a sale being achieved. Loads of interest, two provisional sales at £3k, but they're still here... I really want to try a SE amp (ideally 845, but PSE 300B would also be ok) again, and also ideally reduce the number of boxes currently residing in my small room. Hence the sale. I'll try one last price drop at £2,600 - and I'll consider a trade for a SE amp. I've replaced the 4 x GE 6FQ7 with Raytheon, which I think are better - I'll include both sets.
  5. Thanks. Sorry, should have been clear I’m looking to control the volume not reduce by a fixed amount. Post edited.
  6. I’m looking for something quality to control the volume between DAC and a power amp. Single ended, and only need one input/output (although if it has more than one that’s not a problem). Don’t mind paying a reasonable amount for a good one but I’m not in MF Baby Ref territory..... Thanks.
  7. I thought these had sold, no less than three times. But they are still here (for reasons that don't have anything to do with the amps!)
  8. Conrad Johnson Premier 12 monoblocks. These date from the early 2000s and had one owner from new (sadly now deceased) until they were acquired by me. Barring one tiny (and I mean tiny) scuff on one of the transformers they look completely as new. They have their original boxes and packaging (also in superb condition, if you care about such things, having only been used the once to send to the original owner from CJ). They are genuine UK export editions (confirmed on the box and the amp chassis). The amps have recently been checked over/serviced/set up by Dave Hunter @ Classic Valve Amps, who was very impressed with their condition and quality. The power valves are a matched identical set (same date codes etc) of GE 6550A and all tested good and are balanced/matched. The small valves are all GE and also test good. Some spare GE signal valves are included. The output transformers are currently set at the factory standard 4 ohm, but can be rewired for 8 or 16 ohm. These are very high quality amps with a build quality which puts some other high end manufacturers to shame. They don’t have their valve cages fitted in the below photos but the cages are present, and in perfect condition. I’m about 15 miles east of Cambridge. There are a few options for getting the amps to a buyer - if you want them we can work something out. I think £3000 is a very fair price given the condition, quality of the power valves and the recent service, looking at the asking prices of other sets.
  9. I’ve had a clear out - so hopefully ok now.
