    Yes, I'm willing to ship it oversees, as long as you are willing to pay the extra shipping fees. Also, keep in mind that my unit comes with the US electric plug.

    FS: Sophia EL-34 Int. Tube Amplifier

    Up for sale is my Sophia EL-34 Integrated Tube Amplifier. The capacitors were upgraded by Sounds Real Audio in Golden, Colorado. Mechanically, the amp is in excellent condition - the amp especially sings with the capacitor upgrade. Cosmetically, the amp is excellent with the exception of a minor...

    airport express worth it?

    Currently, my speaker rig is as follows: iTunes > TBAAM (optical) > presonus CS > sophia EL-34 > Von VR-1's. I've always been wary about using the TBAAM in this setup, as it seems like it might be a bottleneck (it isn't bit perfect, and automatically resamples to 48 kHz). Thus, I've been...

    presonus CS to speakers

    So to get things straight, I don't necessarily need 2 TRS to RCA cables...but 2 TS to RCA cables will do, since the former is just a stereo version which I don't need, since the presonus outputs to both an individual L and R. Am I right?

    presonus CS to speakers

    Hey guys, I recently acquired a presonus central station for my home speaker setup. I bought it with the intention of using it as a dedicated DAC, with a headamp for minor use. All this time, I assumed that there would be a pair of RCA outputs for me to connect to my integrated amp. Turns out...

    tube amp crackling

    Update: So after a month more of this crackling going on, I decided to clean off the excess dust on the amp (there was a lot) and reconnect the tubes to see if perhaps a connection was lose. Voila, the crackling was gone. A few days later, however, the right channel decreased in volume to...

    tube amp crackling

    Currently I've got a pair of Von VR-1's driven by a Sophia EL-34 tube amp. This is my first experience with tubes. I've been running this setup for about a month now and have been immensely enjoying it. Lately, however, I've been noticing that during warmup when no music is playing, I can hear a...

    amp for Von VR-1

    I recently just picked up a pair of used Von Schweikert VR-1's in maple for use in a nearfield setup. The thing is, now I need a decent budget integrated amp to drive them properly. I'm driving them with a Pioneer A-35r that I used to use just fine with my old Energy C-3's, but they sound just...
