FS: Decware CSP2+ with multiple sets of NOS tubes
Will Ship To: CONUS
Thanks for looking at my ad! Up for sale is my nearly new Decware CSP2+ headphone amplifier. This is the newly updated version of the CSP2...the new unit is quieter and also has input trim adjustments to make it even friendlier for headphone use. I've owned the older version of this amp and was never able to crack the volume much above 9 o'clock. The new input adjustments allow for more usable play in volume.
The CSP2+ has two inputs, one preamp output, and one subwoofer output. It makes a fine preamp as well as headphone amplifier. I've had this particular amp since late summer 2010 and haven't used it much at all...family commitments are piling up! This amp has a stunning mahogany base - the prettiest base I've seen on a Decware amp. Pictures really don't do justice to how the light plays off of it.
Condition - solid 9/10. I've actually never had a Decware product arrive at my house that I'd call a 10/10. These are handmade units and I can always find a nick somewhere or a tiny mark on the top of the volume knob from the amp being assembled upside down. I have added no new wear of my own and, unless you're using a magnifying glass (which I've been known to do), you won't find anything. PLEASE check my feedback here before buying - I'm very proud of under-promising and over-delivering. The amp is in perfect functioning order.
I'm including three sets of driver tubes and two rectifiers in the sale as I have no use for them otherwise. There are two trios of NOS JAN Sylvania 6DJ8 tubes from TubeDepot that were ordered with additional matching tests. There is one trio of NOS JAN Sylvania 6922 tubes from TubeDepot with additional matching tests. There is one brown-base 5Y3GT NOS Sylvania purchased from Tube World and another NOS JAN Sylvania 5Y3GTA purchased from TubeDepot. It's been a while since I checked, but I'm fairly certain this represents about $280+ worth of great tubes for this amp. Unless you are fanatical about tube rolling you can buy this amp package and use it for a decade without buying tubes.
I am asking $795 for the amp PLUS tubes, plus shipping CONUS, payment via PayPal with no extra fees. The amp is $895 new with the stock Chinese tubes. I think this is an extremely fair price (of course!). Again, please check my feedback and buy with confidence.
***Special note about shipping*** If a sale is successful by the evening of Sunday, November 7th I will ship on Monday, November 8th. If the sale is not complete by then, the amp will ship on Monday, November 15th.
