    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 ..

    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:
    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 January 14, 2015 . . . . this is a super deal !!!

    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.

    NOS Waldom 23 step, 2-pole rotary switch $10 + s&h

    Post by j beede on Sun Apr 27, 2014 11:47 am

    This is a large 23-step, 2-pole (stereo) rotary switch, NOS. I bought several of these but have never used them. Waldom PA-4003. The switch is quite large with STRONG detents, but might make a fun project for someone who has a large assortment of resistors and a PAS 2/3/3X with room for a stepped attenuator. Not sure if 23 steps is enough for a proper volume control. $10 each or $15 for two. Please add $3 flat rate for USPS shipping.

    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.

    SP14 woodie for sale.

    Post by gener8r on Thu Feb 05, 2015 10:45 pm

    For sale:  My second custom built SP14 Woodie. Solid Central American Mahogany wood case (the real deal).  This has all the bells and whistles and was built with no expense spared (compared to my first SP14 pictured to the left in the avatar).  This has elma switches to include a six position selector and matching custom built mono 23 position ladder attenuators using Holco and PRP resistors.  PRP and stealth diodes used on the Power Supply side and mostly Mills and some PRP resistors on the signal side.  All electrolytics either replaced with films or bypassed with films and only one pair of Deuland 0.47mF cast copper foil PIOs as output caps.  Gold plated solid brass knobs.  Silver coated copper wire used throughout the signal runs. Cardas GRFA RCAS.  6 inputs (one 3.5mm on the front panel) and 2 outputs.  Includes 4 Sylvania chrome dome 12SN7s, and one GE 6X5GT rectifier .  You'll never find a SP14 that sounds "better" or looks better and it sounds better than it looks.  If you insist on the best this is it.  Selling only due to a relocation as I will have to mail/ship it regardless.  Offered here first.  $1500.00 and includes shipping via USPS Priority with tracking number.  This is, believe it or not, a money spent-break even point for me, so you're basically getting the hours spent on the building portion for free.  I rarely offer/list my work for sale as what I build mostly goes to family and friends.  This is/was my personal unit.  PayPal accepted.  There are some main players on this forum that I believe would vouch for me.  See below flickr links for photos as I can never get them to post (but I bet my kids could).  Thank you for looking.

    CURRENTLY NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!!!!!  (Bob, please delete this posting. THANX!)

    Given unforeseen financial and health straits, I must put my beloved Vandersteen 5Acs up for sale. These are probably the finest speaks you'll ever hear: do the research, and the M-125 tubes love them. They are two years old, cost $35k and are barely broken in. I would accept any proposition above half-price.
    I have the shipping crates for them, but getting them from 83873 would be your problem. Truck freight is the only option, so add another $500 to that pain.
    PM me if you're seriously interested. I would entertain trades as well.
