For Sale:
FS: β22 + σ22 balanced preamp/head amp SOLD

Will Ship To: Anywhere

SOLD to vtsai

 

My own project, which I completed some time ago. It a nice company for my β24 mono blocks.
It has been functioning perfectly mostly as a preamp.
All hi quality components used:
- Elna/Wima caps
- DACT source selector
- stepped attenuator
- neutrik XLR and very nice RCA
- pure silver and copper silver plated wires
- WBT silver solder
- FPE front panel
etc...

As you can see from pictures is rather unusual built, which is balanced, single ended and with another active ground for headphones.
Three channels seats on ε22 backplane board. Another two are positioned vertically on sides walls of enclosure.
There are also oversize heatsinks installed on all boards. Part of the reason I chose to go with bigger heatsinks is to compensate for it's horizontal placement on vertical boards.
Power supply unit contains two σ22(30V) boards with two Avel Lindberg transformers. One 80VA for two β22 boards and the other one is 120VA for three β22 boards.
There is also ε24 power switch with Bulgin blue button.
And finally gain is set 2x for SE and 4x for balanced. This gain proved to be fine with my Beyerdynamic DT880 and also larger numbers of amplifiers.

I've been very, very rarely listening to headphones since I switched to full size system with different commercial preamp.
Also I plan to build another, lighter version of B22 pre/head/amp from scratch. That's the reason I'm selling this one.

Any questions, comments etc... I'll gladly answer.
The amp can be auditioned in NJ 07407.
Pick up is fine with me.
Shipping charges will depend from location.
Payment by paypal (+3%) or cash at pickup.

Price = 1250USD or best offer. SOLD.

I'll also be listing the amp on ebay, where you can check my feedback. Auction link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110607147293

 

UPDATE:

Just to answer a question i've received regarding input selector: angular step of DACT selector is different than indicators on front panel would require. Selector knob  "click" will not  line up with corresponding number of input on panel.
Printed numbers on front panel can easily be removed with sugar cube :-) (as I read on diyenclosure forum). Also, switch is 5 step type, so it make one position unoccupied (1 is balanced(XLR), 2-4 is SE(RCA connectors).

Some more photos of a few cosmetic marks.
The one on top of B22 enclosure is really small. It's a courtesy of my lovely wife.
On the top cover of PSU are some marks. That's how I received from par-metal.

post #11 of 13

Hi everyone!

 

Normally the amp is sold to me.

post #12 of 13

Hi again, I think I need to clarify a little bit.

 

I was the first to make the move (I made the deal by PM, and bought it on ebay within a few hours. After qkizz told me the amp was packed up, and informed me about the shipping cost, I was ready to make the paypal payment)

 

But since then, qkizz has cancelled my purchase on ebay, which surprised me.

Maybe private auctions has been going on here? otherwise, I don't quite understand qkizz's reaction. That is too bad for a transaction that went so smoothly until now.

Anyway, I am still willing to send the payment, but i want first to know if qkizz will send the amp to me and not to another person.

If this post is out of place, I apologize, please feel free to delete it

 

cheers

Typical disagreement between seller and buyer. It happens. There simply is no way to make all the world happy. You had whole yesterday to make this transaction work. Right after I sent you final quote you went MIA. There were NO emails or PM's with your reply that day. This looked like you ignored the sale.
There are a lot of people out there who are "window shopping" only. In my opinion you were not really serious about the purchase. With your actions (or maybe lack of them) you convinced me enough to cancel ebay transaction, take a loss in ebay fees and risk to spoil my 100% (299 rtansactions) ebay feedback.

 

I feel sorry it ended up like this and wish you all best with your future transactions.

 

P.S. Amp is on it's way to happy buyer :-)
