For Sale:
DNA Stratus 240 volts

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Hi,

 

Selling an DNA Stratus latest iteration in 240 volts in mint condition.

 

Tubes included 1x6N1P , 2xShuguang 2A3  + 1 Winged "C" SED 5U4G rectifier + 2x RCA 6BQ7a + 1xVoshod 6N1P Cryo Rocket from Cryoset +  1 RCA VT244 + 1 Sylvania 6BQ7A

 

Amplifier and tubes have very low hours of use.

 

I would 1900 euros + paypal fee (accept wire bank transfer to avoid fee) + shipping

 

Seems the voltage concerns a bit. My answer is 

"Emailed Donald in person and say it works on 230v but not optimal for a few percents. However the voltage is fluctuent and you can have 225 v or 235 v or 245 v (likely more than 230v) in your home, so it will always not optimal. For me it's better to keep on 240v than damage the amp."

 

For the price this amp is amazing, it is on my top 4 with the Balancing Act, 2A3MKIV and WA5 (it's not competitive than overs).

I hear it with my JPS Abyss and there is no issue to handle this ortho hunger.

 

Regards

Emailed Donald asking if a 240v stratus would work ok on 230v and he said it wouldn't work properly and would have to be sent back to him for rewire to correct voltage.

In France our electrical provider deliver more than 230 volts, rather 235-236v. I don't know for others countries.

Yeah, I agree. Checked the voltage the other day and it was as high as 246v. I would have thought it could stand those kind of fluctuations.

I asked my neighbor and it has currently 241 volts. So I prefer to have an 240v even on 220-230v countries because it seems that electricity provider send more voltage than expected. But it's just my point of view.

 

The better way is to get a Variac http://www.selectronic.fr/autotransformateur-variac-500va.html# 

Changing the voltage of the amp is not a solution as the voltage is not stable as expected. When you have 240v or more in your home you send the amp to Donald and when you changing home and have 230v you send the amp to Donald ?

Emailed Donald in person and say it works on 230v but not optimal for a few percents. However the voltage is fluctuant and you can have 225 v or 235 v or 245 v (more likely more than 230v) in your home, so it will always not optimal. Better way to have 240 v although 230v configured because the amplifier can handle better higher fluctuation. 

It's a non sense to wants the amplifier to be rewired in 230v or just spend money for nothing.
