Sold!
Sorry, forgot to mention I'm in Aus :)   Also, price drop. I've had a lot of interest from European members, but unfortunately shipping is going to be at least $80 AUD for those that are interested.
For sale is a Burson HA-160 that has been collecting dust for over a year now. Apart from the slight cosmetic blemishes there are no issues with the amp. Photos exaggerate the blemishes yadda yadda yadda!   Comes with original packaging. Switchable between 115v or 230v. For international buyers this thing weights around 6kgs or 13lbs so shipping may be pricey. Ask me for a shipping quote.   Buyer pays for Postage + Paypal fees, will accept bank deposit too.   Feel...

Craig said he'd be shipping the amps out soon. That was 3 weeks ago...

  This happens when I A/B the cables too. So I'm not sure if we can blame fatigue. Perhaps my mind is playing tricks, I guess a DBT is the only way to find out.
  Sending the cable over shouldn't be too much, and I'm more than willing to donate for science  and the community . I'd be very interested to see what the skeptics say having been one my self.   It's very interesting with these cables, some are immediately noticeable (ouch the pain) and some have subtle yet noticeable differences. I wouldn't have believed it my self If I hadn't tried, that's what makes this hobby fun in my opinion.  If you've tried something marketed as...
