  1. Curious to your initial thoughts on new CSA100 integrated. Some dealers have had it on demo for a couple of months, judging by youtube. https://www.stereonet.co.uk/news/copland-csa100-integrated-amplifier Front facia is simple but classy, main case looks fairly basic for 3.5k. Specs are 100w into 8/180 into 4 ohm, build in dac (sabre?) And what looks like a single triode tube for voltage gain - no influence on tone Anyway, looks like a quality amp. Personally love the Leica like front panel, and shd power low sensitivity speakers. Questions about it 700w max consumption(!) Wd like to know usage for normal listening levels. Is the dac good enough for say, a U1 mini. What volume pot is used? Sound signature, is it neutral or warm side of. Vs Hegel H190 ..
  2. Hi All, Time for a clear out of past gear now I have the time. First up this beautiful leben. Bought here on the wam a fair few years ago and then parked into storage whilst other items were put into play. Same condition as I bought it in. A couple of dings on one side cheek and a small one on the top of the other side cheek. Minimal hum from the valves and I've run some deoxit over them for good measure. I've mainly been running it with the baldwins and the amperex tubes which are also included in the price to get started on a bit of tube rolling. Only lightly used whilst with me as I was away 8 weeks out of every 10 and it only sat in the system for about 2 years. Also doubles as a fantastic headphone amplifier, used with audeze lcd-2s this was really special. Through speakers also stunning. Main thing to note is that this is a 120V version, it comes supplied with a high quality airlink step-up transformer with fancy wiring and iec adapter. I'm unsure on if the packaging is original but fits well. Due to the fragile nature I would prefer collection but can ship if required, valves will be removed for shipping and protected well. I'm located in sheffield S10. Demos welcome, I can run it through Morel 704s (also for sale) or through PMC fact 12s (likely a terrible pairing) or feel free to bring your own, i have a pair of stands that can be used. Asking £XX postage.
  3. For sale is my Teac A-H01 Integrated Amplifier in as new and unused condition. A well reviewed excellent little amp. Comes in original box and with all accessories. £175 + postage and packing (Insured 48hr - approx £16.50) Thanks for looking Manufacturer Specification and stock images: High-performance Stereo Amplifier/DAC Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® amplifier module (ICEpower50ASX2-SE) USB Audio Class2 High-speed Input from PC/Mac (Tenor 8802) 32bit/192kHz D/A Converter (BurrBrown PCM5102) Supports Asynchronous Transfer Mode Motorized Volume Control Detachable AC Socket Aluminium Front Panel Remote Control (also controls DS-H01) RC-1268 Output Power: 60W x 2 (4 ohms, 1kHz, less than 1% THD), 30W x 2 (8 ohms, 1kHz, less than 1% THD)
  4. I recently rediscovered my old A400. Hooked it up and was really impressed by the sound. This lasted for about 4 days before it blew.... I’d like another one as part of a second system. Must be in good working order (don’t mind getting it serviced but not repaired). Must be able to deliver or socially-distanced collection near Bury St Edmunds.. Please do not other alternatives. I’m sure they’re jolly good, if not better, but this is the model I’m after. Thank you.
  5. Hi all, with the advent of the Karousel upgrade to the LP12 I read a lot of good stuff. I collected a few clips kindly shared by a member on the Lejonklou forum, and also my trusted dealer sent me a comparison of Akurate LP12s with Cirkus vs Karousel. Auditioning these files leaves me puzzled, as the difference is much smaller, than I had expected from the chatter in the forums, and my dealers words. But I had a similar effect, when auditioning clips of KRadikal vs ARadikal on my system. The difference appeared more pronounced, when I played the same files on my Pono player into my Beyerdynamic T51p cans. (Can't test this with the bearing clips now, as the Pono and cans are in my 2nd home 420 km away from here.) So I wonder if my amp, or speakers are holding too much back, and if spending into a Radikal to get the Karousel is the best investment for me. My current chain is: LP12 - Cirkus - Lingo2 - Kore - Ekos2 - Krystal - Uphorik - KRDSM - AEXBOX6/K - C6100/D - AV5140/EspekT I'm using SO+ which my trusted dealer and I finetuned applying tunedem. Any experiences / opinions? Cheers, TMC
  6. Hi I have owned a Net Audio totally modified Quad 303/33 (full upgrade) for four years or so. I love it but wonder to what level I need to go to get a substantial improvement. Either pre/power or integrated. Richard A

  11. Arcam A29 amplifier. Class G and sounds awesome. Transferable warranty, valid until Oct 2022. Very tidy condition indeed. Pics are not the best but condition is very good.

  13. Up for sale is this Temple Audio Bantam One Integrated amplifier. Details of this amplifier can be found here - http://www.bantamone.com. A review can be found here - http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/equipment/0416/Temple_Audio_Bantam_One_Integrated_Amplifier_Review.htm. Please note this does not have a phono stage - it is just 3 lines in with a pre-out. Few pictures.... As far as I can tell it's pretty much in mint condition with no marks that I can see. I have the original packaging which means it will be double-boxed for posting/delivery. I'm looking for £400 with £15 postage - or happy for it to be collected from Staffordshire. Cheers

  15. Tag Mclaren F3 60i SL Integrated Amplifier The 60i SL integrated amplifier. Rated at 60 watts (typical 72 watts) per channel (8 ohm) and featuring ‘Straight Line Technology’ , the integrated amplifier 60i SL employs sophisticated minimalism to deliver maximum sound quality. Controls focus on the essentials for purity of sound, yet the 60i SL can accept six sources and accommodate three tape loops. The preamplifier output allows the integrated amplifier 60i SL to control a second power amplifier as well as an external device (such as a surround sound processor) to enable home theatre or multi-room use. Manufacturer : Tag Mclaren F3 Model : 60i SL Serial Number : 00109913 Very Good Condition £245.00 Or Nearest Reasonable Offer -- Glowing Reviews Here: http://www.audioreview.com/product/amplification/integrated-amplifiers/tag-mclaren-audio/model-60irv.html http://www.audioreview.com/product/amplification/amplifiers/tagmclaren/60i.html -- Shall send via Royal Mail Signed For, Same or Next Working Day Pick up from Edinburgh
  16. Majikal Linn amp if you are thinking about going Aktiv allowing six channels of amplification. Buyer pays all carriage fees at cost, which is quite reasonable using EMS. I've shipped several units from Taiwan to various corners of the globe using them with excellent results. I will ship your new amp in the original Linn packaging with a US style Linn power cord. Feel free to contact me for further questions or additional photos. I tried to highlight the slight imperfections in the photos. In real lighting conditions they are almost unnoticeable. Please see the link for photos. £900 plus shipping. https://www.audiowoof.com/show_ad.php?AdId=3577
  17. Octave V70SE integrated valve amplifier and black box power supply upgrade, both in silver. I may regret this, but I have decided to try active speakers, which means there is now an opportunity to purchase this wonderful tube amplifier. I am the second owner and have enjoyed seven fantastic years listening to and beholding this amp. This is a V70 amp which received an upgrade from the factory to SE specification in 2011 (I have the invoice). Included in the sale is a black box power supply upgrade which multiplies the PS storage capacitance by 4x. This improves the dynamic range and helps the amp cope with low impedance speaker loads. I initially purchased this after reading that Dynaudio (which I owned at the time) used Octave amps in their show systems. The amp sounds great, very powerful and punchy and clean yet refined with lovely rich harmonic colour. Best of both worlds. It outputs about 70W per channel. This is a low maintenance valve amp, biasing the power tubes is made very easy with small pots on the front face and LED indication of bias voltage. Unlike many components, I have never felt the itch to try something else. Only the purchase of active speakers makes this redundant. I have the original packaging, manuals, valve cover and remote. I will also throw in a few ECC83 input tubes. Currently running KT120 power tubes, I will also include 3x 6550 and 4x KT88 (used but working). I have only needed to replace power tubes once in seven years when one 6550 blew. The amp is in immaculate condition, as good as new really. You may see a couple of tiny marks where the tube cover screws down, but this would have been the case when unboxed for the very first time. Faultless electronically and audibly, this is built like a tank and should still be singing many decades from now. Octave V70SE currently retails for £4,795 and Black Box for £990 (Elite Audio). Asking £2,500 £1950. Collection and demo welcome near Tewkesbury. I could post after cleared funds but this is very heavy and with full insurance could be expensive. I am in need of a pre-amp for my new active speakers. I’m really after a balanced valve pre (e.g. Modwright) but may consider something else to tide me over until the right one comes along. So, I may be willing to consider something in part exchange. Also selling Zingali Zero Otto speakers, see separate advert. Sorry the photos aren’t great, I missed the last of the daylight. I may try to take some better ones soon.
  18. Quick version; £1,150 with Border Patrol or £750 without. One of the best examples you are likely to find of this classic amp / combo (much) Longer version; One of the issues with box swapping is that you have to move kit on. That is particularly difficult when you have such a strong emotional attachment to the piece in question however irrational that may be for what is just a box of electronics. So here it is, my much loved AI S500 integrated amp with separate Border Patrol p/s. I have owned this for nearly 30 years, bought from Definitive Audio when Kevin was still trading from his terrace in Nottingham (I’ll never forget the demo with it hooked up to his Air Scouts!). The Border Patrol was added in 2001, if memory serves, so likely to have been among one of the first done. Hopefully doesn’t need much introduction as it rightly considered something of a classic, both for its innovative design at the time and justified reputation for highly musical performance. Some key points you will want to know; The amp has been in regular use except for a period of 10 years when it was stored due to house moves and kids. Been back in use for last 2 years. Has been regularly serviced over the years firstly by David Wright and most recently David Coe. Just over a year ago David Coe completed an extensive round of upgrades including new caps, volume pot and tweaks to circuits with a particular focus on the built in MM phono stage. Cost was over £300 Current valves are EH EL34’s with JJ’s and a very nice NOS Tungsram as signal valves. All have been fitted within the last 2 years. Some nice tube rolling options with other EL 34's, 5881 or KT77's possible and the circuit is auto biasing Balance and tape loop circuits have been bypassed This is the early model with the superior Hinchley transformers The MM phono stage is very good, when I switched to my VIDA recently there really wasn't as big a gap in performance as I was expecting Set up in standard push pull mode it's output is a punchy 25W Condition is very good, barely a mark on the black crackle finish, the Perspex cover is scratch free however I cannot currently track down the pins that hold the Perspex in place (I always preferred the looks without this cover so they have been stored somewhere). Assume that they won’t be included, but alternative solutions such as nylon hex bolts would be easy to source The Border Patrol is a choke regulated supply that overrides the the HT supply in the amp. This is also a well known upgrade for this amp adding significant extra control on complex passages of music and in the bass. It utilises a GZ34 valve (correct Mullard version replaced last year) and a substantial transformer. It connects to the amp via a dedicated umbilical lead and is automatically turned on and off through the amp power switch. This is the standard version that now retails around the £1200 mark. This is also in good condition but with one scratch on the top left of the black casing I have tried to show in the photos. I think you will struggle to find a better one than this both cosmetically and crucially in terms of its service history. I would be looking for £1,150 for the combo. It is possible to separate the Border Patrol from the amp (I would need to get David Coe to do this) and I would sell the amp separately for £750 if that is an option you would prefer. The Border Patrol is a versatile unit that can be added to various valve devices and to be honest I would want to keep it for future use unless I get get at least the £400 price differential. I don't have original boxes and to be honest posting valve gear is not an enticing prospect so either pick up from Folkestone, Kent or I can meet part way e.g. M25 area.

  21. Tisbury Mini Passive Pre-Amplifier in excellent condition un-marked £100 plus P&P I no longer need it as I recently changed my amplifier set up.

  23. Hello everyone, Currently I am on the lookout for a pair of Quad ESL 57 monitors in good condition. The purchase will eat up most of my budget. Unfortunately, these speakers seem to pose quite a challenge for an amplifier. My amplifier budget is 250$ max, and I am investigating my best option. The amp should not have too much power, otherwise it could cause arcing in the panels. 50 watt per channel or under should be fine. It should be happy to drive a reactive load. My save bet would be a Quad 303. I can find one in good condition within my budget. I can be certain that they will work well with the ESL 57. However, I've read that they are nothing special, and that modern amps easily surpass them. I should mention that I am not looking for a 'character' amp or anything. I am looking for low distortion, and something that does not introduce a sound of its own. It should drive the ESL safely to reasonable sound levels (95db would be more than enough for me) without causing arcing or taking damage, and with as little distortion as possible. I've compiled quite a list of interesting amps. Does anybody have experience with any of them driving Quad ESL 57s? Would any of them be a better choice than a Quad 303? Or is there an even better option within budget that I have not listed? Which amp would you choose? Thanks in advance for any pointers.
