All,

I am listing my iNova for sale, it is in excellent condition and will ship in the factory box and packaging. This is the latest offering of the iNova and offers great performance for the price. The DAC alone is considered worth the price of admission by some, but the tube buffering and Class A preamp section are the real stars. It is listed at 80 Watts at 6 Ohms, but I have powered both Mythos ST and Polk LSi speakers with it with no problems whatsoever. I would love to keep it, but I just went with a Pioneer Elite 63 to finish off my upstairs room and need the funds to get the dedicated seats. Asking $1100 shipped, which is a 150-200 less than the 'gon typically sees. I will attempt to post up some pictures soon, but it is the piano black finish with fairly minimal use on it.

    Have you done any tube swapping in this unit? How revealing is it with tube rolling?

    I have only used the stock tube, which definitely adds a smoother warmer sound overall. I would assume superior tubes would only magnify this effect. The unit powered both Mythos STS and LSi15's without any issue. The pairing with the LSi's was the best match, but it really did a good job of taking the brightness of the STS away. The DAC/iPod dock is worth it alone, but the performance of the amp section is excellent as well.
