This unit is gorgeous and barely has any time on it. The build quality is extremely high and its actually even more attractive in person. Right now, I don't have a rig/space that really lends itself to tube gear, so I think I'm going to stay out of the tube arena for just a little big longer. Because of that, you guys have the opportunity to pick this up at a stellar price:

$2000 + shipping/pp fees or gifted.

List on this guy is $3100, so you should save $1000 on a superb amp. It includes remote, tube cage, and wood sides.

    I like the front L and R RCA input jacks. Not sure I've ever seen full RCA input on the front plate, usually it's 3.5mm. Very cool!

    This thing pairs very well with the Harbeth Super HL5+.

    Not necessarily a bad idea -- Steve Deckert, e.g., used (uses?) 6 ohm secondaries on his "Zen" SE-84 amplifier series; a cost-effective way to give compatibility to lots of "modern" (lower impedance) loudspeakers with less taps.

    But it also has 8 ohm taps as well...wouldn't 4 ohm taps give it a better range for lack of a better term.

    Yeah, you're right -- OK, that is odd. No idea.

    You're obviously no thinking this through. You buy this with the proviso that it's going in the basement rig, therefore, just another "basement" renovation cost.

    While I like your thinking, Kerry, the basement currently has 4 complete rigs worth of gear and that isn't including the dedicate theater stuff. :/

    Nice looking piece. I've been building a modest tube or hybrid/tube integrated bookshelf system in my mind the last several months. Been looking at the overseas stuff. I wonder how this puppy would mate up with the Ascend Sierra 2 Reference monitors that have a current Massdrop or the Aurum Cantus LS 2SV MKII at about half the price? I'd love to find out but I'm always broke. $1600, the exact amount for the career change program the Mrs wants to take next month....well the first portion anyway. I'm scrambling to get her enrolled. It looks like a beautiful piece but Priorities Man!

    Good luck with the sale!

    Is this a "SET" tube integrated like the MastersounD products?
