ALCHEMIST KRAKEN pre & power amps Class A

Recommended Posts

I had these on the Devilbay until I remembered why I dislike selling on there so much , I had plenty of interest and plenty of %^*#%^^ too .

It comes with the original power supplies ( one of which is the factory upgraded 2 transformer version) the preamp and power amp .

This has never missed a beat and impressed many .

It does have the phono card installed but there is an issue with the connection, this has never been an issue for me as I no longer listen to vinyl .

I have replaced the rca/phono sockets and the power indicator bulbs . 

I believe it has been recapped in the past , I am the second owner, the first owner was in the Hifi retail trade and dealt with Alchemist.

This is a late mk1 dual mono silver version ( rare ) 

They sound absolutely lovely and they do get pretty warm . 

Collection ONLY ( sorry!  ) Milton Keynes 

£500

Bump.

I have gone down another route now with my main system and using my Pm4 in my second system so I will let this go ( reluctantly)

This has seen off many many other amps , including Krell , Conrad Johnson and more.

£500

I may swap for something Hifi and I may even deliver to THE show .
