Deal with Tim with confidence he is a great guy.

God that is a bloody tempting price for ARC monoblocks.

Another VOC for Tim. Hope you’re enjoying the dac sir. 

Is it me or do these seem really cheap? I’ve never seen this level of ARC kit at this price before.

Looks like 8 per amplifier, so 16 in total.

Here's a full manual with specs, full details and schematics:

That is a very good price for these. If you can handle the size and weight of these, then these should be a genuine bargain.

That does indeed look like a genuine bargain - I have always wanted to try AR valve power with my Proacs (apparently often the amps of choice by Mr Tyler himself for dems etc)  - sadly there is no way I could accommodate these even if they were free without courting instant divorce proceedings...

16 new valves bumps the headline price up quite a bit sadly. I think my ideas about getting a newer car have just been canned :)

Struggling to see the speaker connectors in the pics but there's a bit on the back in the second photo that looks rather like screw down connectors. Can these take bananas?

Thanks I guess it's bare wire speaker cables only then and only XLR input?

Banana plugs are fine. Xlr only but will take rca to xlr, I had this set up for ages. Cheers Tim
Thanks same as me with XLR adaptors on my ice power amp. How do the banana plugs fit into the outputs?
