Looks exactly like the silver one on their website. Rated 8/10 to be conservative but still looks new. Original owner....just time to try something new is all. BTW...no, you can't tube roll with this puppy. Retail is 3g's, 1550 shipped to your door in the 48. Might consider trades too, doesn't hurt to ask, worse I can say is no. Cash/check/MO....no paypal. Thanks

    Somewhat sold to the Big Red, when the coin hits my door.

    Just out of curiosity, what do you plan on hooking it up to ?

    Wow I'd love to hear this amp paired with Marvin's Belles 21A preamp.

    A person could buy both and spend less then I did for my Vincent preamp & amp.

    GLWTS Tony! think your going to have to look hard to replace this one!

    I already have one....it's called a wife. ;) Though I do have to talk to her about those darn nails.

    As far as what I'm getting, still on the fence. I don't need monster power as my speaks are 94-95 efficient. I do need good current though for a multiple driver speaker.

    So this is back up, you can google up 6-moons review of it. The amp shines when you present it with a harder load, as most do anyway.

    Can't let the avr handle things Phil, you know that. Receiver and big 4 ohm speakers don't mix well. lol I'll fill you in later, but just trying to change directions is all, ya gotta mix it up every once in awhile.

    Since I'm in a good mood today, I'll drop the price once for Polkies I know only, 1400 to your door in the lower 48.

    I have a chance to buy one of these locally for $1,500. It's from a guy I've purchased from before...he scouts estate sales for his inventory. It's in black, whereas I would prefer silver. Anyone want to talk me into buying it, even though it's not in my preferred color?

    Dang nice amp if you need one. It may not play well with some SDA's. Get some matched 6sl7 tubes and sit back be prepared for your sack to be blown back.

    Ha. Ivan, I passed the 'need' stage a while ago, but this one certainly piqued my interest. Thanks for the tip on the sack...sounds like I might need to buy a jock strap :D
