FS: For Sale Tube Audio Devices TAD-150 Signature Preamplifier
Will Ship To: Anywhere
General Information - SOLD - on USAudiomart
Up for sale, the TAD-150 Signature Edition Stereo Tube Pre-amplifier. This is a VERY rare chance to own a very special and highly regarded pre-amplifier. There were only 300 Signature Edition TAD-150 Pre-amplifers made, and only six were made in black! It took me years of searching to find one in black. The better half didn't like the champagne color of the unit I originally had, plus it was tough to find matching components. It plays happily with 12AX7s, 12AU7s and 12AT7s, and tubes in those families. I am only selling, as I no longer have room for speakers in our new house and have moved to Stax headphones out of necessity. Since the Stax amplifiers have built-in pre-amplifiers, I just can't justify keeping this unit around any longer. This unit has upgraded orange LEDs below the tubes, so it glows much brighter than most of these units. Of course, being that it's a Signature model, its signed by it's creator, Paul Grzybek.
Please see my 100% perfect feedback on the 'gon and eBay; both with the same user-name as here.
