FS Norma Audio REVO IPA-140 with DAC Mint Condition


Recommended Posts

I’ll definitely regret this but for sale is my Norma Audio REVO IPA-140 in Silver with the DAC module (140w/8 Ohm).

A well regarded integrated amplifier with stunning looks as well in my opinion. I’ve had a change of circumstances so it’s either my deck or this amp and as I have an old Denon amp this unfortunately has to go. 

In perfect working order without a single mark and all original packaging. 

This unit was built in Oct 2018 and is nearly two and a half years old and carries a further two and a half year warranty. I’ve never had a single problem with it. 

The remote does have a slight nick to it and I’ve tried to show this in the photo but it doesn’t affect how it works and is just cosmetic. 

This one has the built in DAC (24/192khz USB) and retails at  £6,244. 

I’m after £3,600 but open to offers. 

Collection preferred (Stockport) but can send by courier, meet within a reasonable distance. Courier costs excluded buyer to arrange and accept risk / responsibility. 

Lots of reviews on-line, gutted to see it go. EDCC0028-9275-4E9D-86F7-2A868F6318B8.jpeg.b3f0a96154869512ad41eef7649edf09.jpeg

This is an absolutely stunning amplifier, best amp I’ve owned by some way (and there’ve been a few) - superb sound and wonderful build quality.  Will drive virtually any speaker, good at low volume, very organic sound, etc. Checkout the reviews here:

The on-board dac is not bad too.  At this price a bargain. 🙂

I agree, it’s like a work of art when you take the top off and look inside.

I have the lower powered Norma IPA 70, an absolutely fabulous amplifier. With the lid removed, it looks like a Metropolis inside - beautiful build quality. Having owned many beautiful amplifiers, it’s NOT going anywhere! I can only imagine what the higher powered IPA 140 sounds like! There’s a very good review of The IPA 140 in the current issue of HI FI Plus by Alan Sircom. Check it out folks and good luck with the sale.

Yes - seriously reference-class amplifier.  A real steal at this price with £3k off list.  (I have no connection with seller, but a strong one with my own Norma 140! 😊)

Could do with selling this sooner rather than later so if anyone is genuinely interested then please make an offer. 

I don’t want to give it away by any means and do appreciate it’s a lot of money to spend. 
 

thanks

Luke
