FS: ASL Wave 8, Bottlehead S.E.X Fixer-Upper

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

some k1000 users might be interested in these...

 

I have a pair of wave 8 monoblocks I recently acquired from audiogon. I haven't even had a chance to properly use them yet; I've only taken them out of the box to set up (no dedicated preamp). I paid 300 + shipping and that's what I'd like to get back from this. They come with 4 mullard and 4 Ei tubes. Cages and the original schematic are included.

 

I also have a Bottlehead SEX kit that I haven't really gotten around to fixing...I bought it from a user on head-fi who added 2uF teflon caps. However, during transit, the caps managed to torque off two 150k resistors. At this point, there was sound coming out from one channel. Fast forward a few months, I hacked the resistors back into place, but the channel is still dead. Given the timeframe with which I acted, I don't see myself repairing this anytime soon. The glue holding the base is also coming apart, possibly from the east coast weather. I should have a pdf/cd of the manual which I can send as well. I think it'd be a quick fix for someone who is remotely knowledgeable, so I'm offering it at 320+shipping. Two amperex tubes and one RCA tube (6DN7 iirc) are included. There is a headphone jack built in as well for all the high-impedance people out there. I can't speak for quality at large but what I heard out of the sole channel was quite good

 

I can do international at cost, please PM me and we can work something out.

 

Pictures to follow after work.

 

Thanks!

I just wanted to give you a bump, and say that my Wave 8's really do a stellar job driving the K-1000's. I was surprised that such inexpensive tube amps would do the job so well, providing weighty bass and lush mids. I can feel the air turbulence against my ears during the bass passages and the tendency for the K-1000's to sound a bit bright is reversed to some degree. Anyone looking for a great budget amp for these earspeakers would do well to check these out.

Thanks a lot michael, I'll also bump with some photos. Please let me know if under the cover shots are necessary; they are in perfect condition (as perfect as ASL makes their products at least)
