    Place FOR SALE or WANTED audio related items in this STICKY thread

    Post by Bob Latino on Mon Apr 27, 2009 4:28 pm

    Here in this sticky thread is where you may post any older personal audio related items you may have for sale or you may want. You may NOT advertise any NEW audio related items that you may sell on an ongoing basis on Ebay, Audiogon or any web site. This thread is not to be used for commercial sellers of audio gear. Commercial sellers may, however, advertise any personal used audio gear that they may have. It is helpful if you post a photo of the item. This forum is supposed to be able to host a photo but I have trouble making it work so you will have to host the photo yourself on Photobucket or one of the other free photo hosting web sites. Do not post any ITEMS FOR SALE in the main "basket" of the Dynaco Tube Audio Forum or I will remove the post.

    NOTE 1 - If you want to post a FOR SALE item in this thread please hit the "Post Reply" button to add your item IN THIS THREAD. Do not use the "Post New" button. If you hit the "Post New" button, your for sale item will appear in the main body of the forum instead of this thread.

    NOTE 2 - After your item has been sold please EDIT your post and mark the item as "SOLD" and I will remove your item from this thread.

    Also - After about 1 year I will remove your post whether it has been sold or not ..

    Bob

    Here is a link to photos of the FM3 I have for sale.

    https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipOZGBH53LlAvuw14KTJbinenEX4mznNjpbAjZccGI3u3lGRj6fOXqs4oBEEHHqtmw?key=Z0tGQzBtaml6TlBYVVVwdmVONnltc1NGV1JES3FB


    That is an early version of the FM3 - flat-topped cans. This makes it a bit more fiddly to align, but the end-results are the same. So... perhaps 45 minutes for the full alignment process rather than 30 minutes. Once aligned, it does hold well, however.

    SCA-35 Selector Switch

    Post by Tom_Johnson on Tue Nov 27, 2018 1:11 pm

    Hey Guys, I am looking for a selectror switch for a Dynaco SCA-35. Picked it up on trade and did not notice that one wafer on the selector switch was broken into 3 parts. So I need a wafer or the complete controler. I tried to fix it, did not come out good. Please contact me if you have one. Thanks, Tom

    for sale; grace m902 pre, VTA ST120 (custom chassis), acurus 150 SS amp, and add'l tube sets

    Post by tajanes on Thu Nov 29, 2018 7:47 pm

    I’m looking to sell my grace m902 (dac/headphone amp/pre with remote), custom chassis built VTA Dynaco ST120 stereo tube amp (and extra tube sets), and an acurus 150 amp. These are the units I had at the Iowa show (biamping my speakers via a miniDSP). I have original boxes for the grace pre and acurus, however I’m not wanting to ship due to the tube amp. I’m in the 60521 Hinsdale / Chicago area.

    While I really enjoy these units, I’ve not come up with a good way to integrate them into a A/V setting (as I’ve posted, I’m not looking to run my tube amp for ‘just TV’ and while there are work around options to switch between a SS and my tube amp setup, I’m afraid if someone else wants to watch TV and tries to ‘get it right’ that something is going to fry. Prefer to sell as a group, as selling a single unit puts me in limbo (but would consider offers).

    Here is a link to my google drive folder with pics (and info / pricing).

    FS: SDS Labs Driver and Capacitor Boards for the MKIII

    Post by Wilhelm on Sun Dec 09, 2018 4:51 pm


    ************************************************ SOLD ******************************************************


    Selling both SDS Labs driver and capacitor boards for the MKIII.  The driver boards are labeled Triode Electronics.  That's 2 driver boards and 2 cap boards.  

    One of each board has been assembled, while the other two boards are still in kit form and include everything to make them complete.  I briefly installed the assembled boards in one of my MKIII's but, in the end, chose to keep them original.  The assembled boards cannot have more than an hour of use.  Unfortunately, the assembled cap board is missing three of the 100uf caps as they suffered soldering iron damage by my careless hand.  Mouser sells the replacement caps for about $2.79 each.

    I will sell all 4 boards for $180 shipped anywhere within the continental USA, Paypal fees included.  Alternatively, if you only want the unassembled kits, I will sell them as separate for $100 shipped.  However, the best deal is all 4 boards, as that is basically the cost of the cap boards alone.  Your choice.

    You may have noticed that the assembled driver board has Xicon caps installed and the kit has Solen's.  Although not pictured I will include 4 additional new Solen's if both driver boards are purchased.

    Not trying to make any money on these, just want to pass them on to someone who can or wants to use them.  Reply here or send me a PM if interested and we can work out the details.  Please, check out my feedback on eBay, username spec_script and Audiogon, username wpm.  Thanks!

    Wil

    That board was last used in 2012 .. Roy stopped using it in early 2012 and I stopped using it in April of 2012. This earlier version VTA driver board has been out of production for about 7 years. Your chances of finding an older unused (non-CCS, 12AT7) board are pretty slim. You might check Ebay ?

    Lot of 15x vintage 12-BH7 Tubes- tested at TC Tubes - $165 plus shipping

    Post by vtshopdog on Fri Jan 25, 2019 8:08 pm

    Lot of 15x vintage 12-BH7 Tubes- all tested at TC Tubes - $165 plus shipping

    I know many of you love 12bh7 driver tubes, but I simply prefer sound of 12au7 in my system and have these gathering dust in my basement.  I would like to sell the entire lot as a group.  Included are 3x RCA Grey Plate, 2x RCA Black Plate and the rest are assorted GE plus a lone new production Electro-Harmonix. They sound pretty good, but I've had 12au7's in my amps long enough that I really can't recall which of above were my favorites (Black Plates maybe??)

    The group I send will actually be 19 tubes total, but Tyler at TC flagged 2 as suspect and 2 with some degree of leakage so advertising the quantity as 15 - (I'll send them all and you can decide what to do with the marginal units)

    PM me if you would like a copy of Tyler's test report, you can read most of the measurements in photo attached to this post.

    $165, PayPal accepted and will ship USPS Priority for $9.00

    Thanks for looking!

    Plethora of Chinese KT-88 and CV-181 tubes for sale - most all new

    Post by deepee99 on Fri Feb 15, 2019 3:06 pm

    I have a slew of the premium-grade ShuGuang and PSVane CV-181 and KT-88 tubes I'll never use. None has >50 hours and most are brand new. I will sell any or all of them for 50%-75% of the going eBay rate plus shipping from the U.S. PM me your needs and we'll work out a price together.
    None of these are "lame ducks"; I just have re-adjusted my listening preferences. The CV-181s will do any SP-14 type preamp using 6SN7s incredible justice and the KT-88s are no slouches, either.
    Guaranteed not DOA or I will replace the tube at no charge to you. PayPal works easiest but I'm happy to wait on a check or money order.

    I have here TWO VTA ST-70/ST-120 BLEM stainless steel chassis. Each chassis has a few minor marks on the mirror surface. These are 16 gauge chassis and are heavier duty than other replacement Dynaco ST-70 chassis presently available. New replacement (non BLEM) chassis are $130 - $150 PLUS shipping. Each BLEM chassis comes with a 16 gauge bottom cover. These chassis are identical in size to the original Dynaco ST-70 chassis. An ST-70 tube cage will fit this chassis perfectly. Rubber chassis supports are included but the #6 sheet metal screws (shown in the photo) that hold on the bottom cover are not included. $89 with FREE shipping to anywhere in the USA. I can ship these BLEM chassis outside the USA but International shipping will be at extra cost. Email me directly at > Bob01605(at)aol(dot)com

    Ahem Wink  

    tgrier,  I'll sell you my 2010 VTA driver board.  I purchased it new from Bob, untouched.  I also have *all* components that go with it and the chassis (I bought two of everything...). If you're interested in some/all, I can figure out a price.  According to Bob, it's both vintage and rare, so I think it should fetch like at least 500% of retail, right?!  Thanks Bob! Smile

    ....I'm also a broke student and would be more than happy to assemble the board for you with the components I have.
