For Sale: Bottlehead Crack with Speedball and output caps upgrade

For Sale:
Bottlehead Crack with Speedball and output caps upgrade

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I'm selling this amp which I bought from dean0 a few weeks ago. He did a very good job putting it together everything looks very neat and tidy. It is a great amp but it made me decide to get out of headphones (HD650s sold already on a local site). I have a nice speaker setup and find that much more exiting to listen to. The text below is mostly copied from the add by dean0, I have taken the picture myself though to show you the condition it is in.

 

Bottlehead Crack with Upgrades

 

Built by dean0 2 years ago and has some very high quality parts. The amp sounds amazing, especially with high impedance headphones like the HD650.

 

- 100uf Mundorf M-Cap Film (output caps)

- High quality resistors 

- Tung-Sol 5998 Valve (included stock valve)

- Phillips ECC82 Valve (12AU7 stock valve is included but has a problem one channel is louder than the other) 

- Speed-Ball Upgrade

- Blue Alps Potentiometer 

- Case top professionally powder coated in copper color, and wood sanded/varnished sides

More Information about this Amplifier can be found here:

http://www.bottlehead.com/store.php/products/crack-otl-headphone-amplifier-kit

 

To buy just the parts would cost £380 (about 450 Euros) plus you have to build it and pay shipping costs. I am selling for the same price I originally paid, which was very reasonable I think. Please PM me if you have any questions. I will happily ship it anywhere in the world, shipping cost are for the buyer though.

 

Thanks for your interest!

a) the amp was built by the first purchaser. I have not modified it at all.

b) It has only had two buyers.

c) It's about two years old I've only had it for almost a month now.

d) There is no receipt.

e) Not sure what this means - maybe I can be of more help if you explain.

f) I don't know - I have sent a message to the original owner to ask.

g) no.

What is the EXACT VOLTAGE of the TRANSFORMER of power (which appears on top of the aluminum plate)? Generally, the OPERATING VOLTAGE of the transformer is written in it. Europe has 220 volts, 230 volts, 240 volts at home. I imagine that the DESIGN OT THE TRANSFORMER of the amplifier corresponds to EXACTLY one of these three European voltages, or different from the world over (110 volts, 115 volts, 120 volts)? Thanks.

Very interested in this, if this is still available after Christmas when I have spare cash I'll get in touch. I can also vouch for the original seller dean0's DIY skills - I bought a modded headphone from him and it was excellent.

OFFER $ 500 U.S. DOLLARS attenção for conversion into euros.

 

I live in the state and city of the same name: Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, zip = 22210-050.
I have EBAY (USA) with 100% positive feedback.
In head-fi I bought a DECWARE CS2 + from Dubai with excellent feedback from the seller to my HD 800.

 

1) I paid with paypal with verified address, at the time of settlement.
2) I assume the payment of the entire shipping with tracking number must ... depending on the value that can reach absurd.
3) I'm not in a hurry, you can get in communication with me if you want in the time you want.
Thank you.

Good day, I saw that the amplifier is new for sale: I continue to offer U.S. $ 500 (five hundred U.S. dollars for conversion into Euros with google) without tubes, except the input family 12AU7.. You can sell them, especially the 5998 which is fairly valued and sought to recover the difference. My proposal is still subject to the price of shipping with tracking number that I would pay entirely with paypal with verified address and that can be very very very expensive. You can communicate with me at any giving time to reflect, I'm in no hurry.

I received your PM. ATTENTION, we're still trying to find an agreement for the purchase and sale. No further commitment between us.

=> OK to show me the cost of shipping with trackin NUMBER to track the progress of the PRODUCT by POST (AIR MAIL?) to my HOUSE.

=> Depending on the cost of shipping, I'll let you know if I agree to buy and sell, because, anyway, will be absurd expensive, and the Brazilian money has no value in the exchange rate with the euro. You can understand why I try to lower the price.

=> I'll send a PM for the purpose of confirming the details of a possible sale, with my personal physical address and paypal and also my email (paypal which is the same as my ordinary communication) for you to use.

 

==> I wait,

==>I confirm that I am REALLY INTERESTED in getting into an agreement to purchase your product,

thank you.
