For Sale:
SOLD Indeed G3 Hybrid Tube Amp $100 Ship Included in CONUSA. SOLD

Will Ship To: CONUSA

The G2 is by far ahead of all the other “CUTE” CLASS A tube headphone amps from China (Bravo, Muse, etc.).Many of the shortcomings of these other amps are improved, such as,  thicker PCB with improved etches, IRF510 output FETS for improved highs, 6/12 series tube jumper for tube rolling, and others, were improved with the G2, which “was” considered the best of the best. Google Indeed G2 and see them.

 

Enter the G3. The best got better.

 

An improved power relay that engages the phones after the amp power is steady

 

Loudness button for higher bass and treble. This facilitates listening at lower levels. The button can be seen next to the volume pot.

 

A 2 amp power supply that will not run out of headroom.

 

In addition, I made some further enhancements that can be seen in the pictures.

 

I opened holes next to the tube so that bias adjustments, and switching between 6 and 12 series tubes can be done without removing the top acrylic plate. This also provides more heat venting.

 

On the bottom of the PCB I added 2 22K resistors parallel to the cathode resistors so that there is more range for adjusting the bias. The stock setup did not allow adjusting the bias voltage above 13 volts for 12 series. The tried and true values for bias voltages are 13V for 6 and 13.5V for 12. Also you can see where I soldered thick, solid wires to the PCB and ran them to the edge of the PCB. ALL OF THESE MODS MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO TUBE ROLL WITHOUT REMOVING ANYTHING EXCEPT THE TUBE!!!

 

A 6922 tube is plugged in the amp and a 12AU7 is included so you can start tube rolling now.

 

Why am I selling it? The “SORRY YOUR WALLET” bug has hit me. This amp is a great way to get started in tubes. The sound out performs many more $$ amps. I have tested it with 32 ohm Grados and 600 ohm AKG 240 Sextett (which are quite hungry).

 

These are going for $119.99 plus shipping from China on eBay. I am asking $100 (shipping included to CONUSA), no haggling.

 

Merry Christmas!

Omg I love you... and YES DUDE PERFECT TIMING!  You must pm me back NOW as I need an Intro Tube and ZOMG THERE IT IS! With all the Bravo V2 mods I was thinking about :D

 

Yes there is no need to haggle you as that price is pretty epic... trust me looking at Millet Hybrid builds and Bravo V2 mods... yours is by far the cheapest an best performing... my only question is OMG WHEN CAN YOU SHIP IT [jk] what do I need to power it... does it come with a wall Transformer?
