Picked up this in a local store a couple years ago. The cosmetic condidtion is not in a good shape, scratches in the front plate and the top cover of the volume knot is missing. And I did not do a good job to repaint the cover (I actually should not have done it :( ). However, inside of the amp is in excellent condition. The inside was checked by the professionals. All the caps were measured with RF meter and showed good results, which means the original owner had very low hour on it and abandoned the amp. I have put in the new tubes and calibrated it. It functions very well and I enjoyed it with my stax 404 LE.
It comes with a pair of the Matsuhita tubes. They are the one of the best for the T1 amp (http://www.head-fi.org/t/284449/stax-srm-t1-tubes). I had a hard time to source those tubes. I purchased them NOS and had less than 100 hours on them (or maybe only 50 hrs).
Price Drop!!! $375 net to me, buyer pays the paypal fee and shipping.
reason to sell: need fund to get a closed-back headphone for office use.
I have a couple feedbacks in the old system, but switched to photography for a couple years and now I am coming back to the headphone world. ebay feedback is also listed in my signature.
