SJS Arcadia pre-amp model 1.5.

This has been brought up to full current specification.

[SIZE=11pt]It was upgraded by Simon, SJS, in October as follows (information supplied/verifiable by Simon, SJS to me):[/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]- convert to 6111wa[/SIZE]
- advance service
- upgrade resistors to tantalum film
- re-wire with solid core pure silver
- bypass cathode capacitors with Hovlands
- bypass ht caps with ClartyCaps and Hovlands

 

[SIZE=11pt]This was almost a full rebuild.[/SIZE]

It is now  a Model 1.5 (a non official model version as only model 1 and model 2 versions were originally built).


[SIZE=11pt]It also has[/SIZE][SIZE=11pt] the bypass caps mods fitted by Definitive Audio to a number of amps. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]It is about as good as it could get. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]Only a Model 2 with the bypass caps added could better it.[/SIZE] 

(end of info relayed to me by Simon  :) )

This is a superb preamplifier and matches wonderfully with my SJS 300B power amplifier which is also for sale here.

Selling, because a trip to Disney World, Florida, is costing more than i thought, so everything has to go.  :(

I am in Grantham, Lincs.

Reduced to £1600, which is less than tne last 2 sold for on hifiwigwam."

It's reputation is well merited as can be seen by the comments on this and other websites.
