    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

    AMB remote control PREAMP PROJECT

    Post by tubes4hifi on Tue Jun 11, 2013 11:51 pm

    someone emailed me about this within the last week or two, but now I can't find the email.
    I think they wanted to use it in conjunction with an SP14 preamp for the ultimate $10,000 value preamp (for around $2500).
    This is a great project preamp for someone with electronics experience.
    About $750 invested in this remote controlled, microprocessor controlled, LCD display preamp,
    with mil-spec mini-relays used for signal inputs, outputs, and volume/balance attenuation.
    Custom preamp chassis and power supplies.  
    Price reduced to $250!!   Check it out here:   http://tubes4hifi.com/AMB.htm
    Several photos on link, only showing the front panel here to save space.
    Please check out the link, read in full, any questions via PM or email please.
    Fully assembled, tested, working, but needs some more connections, and a suitable programmable remote control.   Includes full documentation.



    YES, still for sale as of June 3, 2015 . . . . this is a super deal !!!

    Post by tubes4hifi on Thu Apr 03, 2014 8:58 pm

    I've got some a phono preamp for sale that isn't part of my regular offerings.
    This is a PH9, uses four 12AX7 in a CCDA configuration and sounds excellent.
    I can sell you stuffed tested PCB, or I can put it in new chassis to look identical to a brand new PH16,
    The PH9 board is $250 without tubes.   PAT4 chassis with new custom faceplate $160.   New PH16 style chassis with new front and rear machined/engraved panels $250.
    Please rely via email or PM, not in this for sale thread, thanks.

    I've got some tubes to sell or preferably trade. These came out of my ST-70 that I bouglt on the evil auction site 8-9 years ago. I sent it off to Van Alstine for his mod and he put in all new tubes. I have since sold the ST-70 and now have an ST-35 in which I'd like to try some tube rolling.

    I have a pair of 7199s. One is branded Sylvania (USA) and the other us Tung-Sol with a faded and sloppy label. I'd trade these for some 7247s.

    I also have a quad of EL34s. One has the Mullard brand and the other 3 are Tesla. All have faded labels and 2 of the Teslas have discolored bases. I'd trade these for the right quad of EL84s.

    Elsewise, I'm open to suggestions/discussion as these aren't doing me any good sitting in a drawer.

    I picked up a NOS Mullard to try in the center position of my VTA ST-70. I didn't notice much if any difference between it and my RCA. I paid $40. Tried it for about an hour.
    Anyone else want to try it for cheap?
    $30 postpaid including Paypal (Continental USA).
    (Comes in the orig. blue Mullard box.)
    I'm in Va.

    For sale we have the prototype  of our newest phono preamp, the PH20. This is an enhanced, fully balanced version of the excellent PH16. It has the same FET/triode cascode front end for high gain with low noise, but in a balanced configuration with constant current sources, followed by a differential amp with a current sink for perfect linearity, then a symmetrical output buffer stage with super low 150 ohm output impedance! RIAA EQ is split between the first and second stages just like the PH16, giving flat response from 20Hz to 50KHz. The input impedance is 47K ohms, suitable for MM cartridges. There is no hum, and very little tube hiss, the tubes are low noise selected E88CC's.   Asking $800, which is what we have invested with materials and labor.

    VPI Traveler with all the bells and whistles

    Post by deepee99 on Tue Mar 03, 2015 4:27 pm

    If you're looking for a top-notch turntable, please consider my VPI Traveler. It comes with the dust-cover and feedback dampening base. The table alone cost $1500; the cover and base were another $600 or so. I intend to keep the cartridge, an Ortofon MC3 Turbo, but that could be negotiated.
    I am looking for $1200, all in except the cart, and you pay packing and shipping from 83873. A great opportunity to own a fantastic turntable with all accessories at half the price.
    Why is it for sale? I'm down-sizing, and I like to roll cartridges, which is a genuine pain with the Traveler as the head-shell is not removable from the tone-arm so you have to take the sumbitch half apart to do a swap, then set everything back up. Otherwise, no worries. It tracks beautifully and the long tone-arm is a work of art.
    The plinth is VPI's stock red. Doesn't look bad, even in a wooden room.

    New Jersey Tung-Sol 6550s

    Post by deepee99 on Sun Mar 08, 2015 12:55 pm

    I have a dozen-plus original New Jersey Tung-Sol 6550s, tested and matched by Roy and Holger, I went overboard trying to corner the market. Some used, most NOS. You'll get a matched quad for $400, about half of what you'll pay on Fleabay or AudioGoner.
    They work great in any KT-88 type amp.
    A caution: if you've been running Russian tubes you'll need to re-tension the sockets a bit as their pins are a hair smaller in diameter than the new stock Russian KT-88/KT120 tubes.

    Akitika PR-101 preamp

    Post by tubes4hifi on Fri Mar 20, 2015 12:53 pm

    first, this is NOT a tube preamp, this is a brand new modern design preamp using audiophile grade op-amps.
    It was bought as a kit for evaluation, and build by me (50+ years of electronics experience) and works great, sounds very good for a SS preamp.
    I would estimate it's retail value at $1500 and it will compare nicely with modern hi-fi products in that price range.
    Selling for $500 or best offer. It's a good looking preamp that sounds great!  It's ready to plug and play right now!!
    Here's a quick list of the features and benefits:

    •Remote control - you control volume, balance, and input sources without leaving your favorite listening seat
    •Tone controls with bypass-tweaked or flat, the choice is yours. Bypass makes comparisons easy.
    •Control two amplifiers - great for high-end multi-amplifier systems
    •Accommodates Two Tape Recorders - support complex systems without playing patch-cord bingo
    •Plays nicely with Ipods - the front panel 1/8" input jack makes it easy to put Ipod tunes through your big speakers and amp
    •Convenience outlets manage the mess of power cords in your music system
    •Option Slots - Three option slots let you add future functions, making the most of your investment
    •Stacks with the GT-101 power amp. Makes a great looking, great sounding power-amp/preamp combo
    •Option Functions - F1, F2, F3, and F4 push-buttons support future functions, assuring the longevity of your preamp
    •APP - The Akitika Preamp Platform - solid fundamentals with room to expand makes this the perfect platform
          for the advanced audio hobbyist who wants to add new functions, but doesn't want to start from scratch
    •High Quality Parts - maximize reliability and sound quality, even if it costs a little more
    •Opamps are inserted into gold sockets. Install the great op-amps we supply, or experiment with your favorites.
    •120 Volt or 240 Volt operation - use it around the world (currently wired for USA 120vac)

    Specifications

    •Output impedance (Amp A and Amp B) - 1025 Ohms, DC coupled
    •Output impedance (To Tape 1 and To Tape 2) - 1000 Ohms, DC coupled
    •Gain from High Level inputs to Amp A and Amp B outputs - 17 dB (maximum volume setting)
    •Gain from High Level inputs to To Tape 1 and To Tape 2 outputs - 0 dB
    •Input impedance (all high level inputs but Tape 1 and Tape 2) - 50.25 K Ohms when selected, 100K Ohms when not selected
    •Input impedance (Tape 1 and Tape 2) - 50.25K always
    •Shipping Weight: 13 lbs

    I have here ONE VTA ST-70/ST-120 BLEM chassis. There are just a few (3 or 4) very minor scratches on the top surface. This is a 16 gauge stainless steel chassis with a mirror surface and with all the original Dynaco markings silk screened on the front and rear. 16 gauge bottom cover and four hard rubber chassis supports also included. I have sold a few of these (non blem) to customers for $135 + shipping. $95 for this one + $15 shipping ($110) to anywhere in the USA. No photo because it is near impossible to take a photo of a mirrored surface. If you are not satisfied when you receive the chassis - send it back and I will refund your money ..
