Up for sale is my Decware CSP2, an excellent headphone amp and 2-input preamp. I'm the original owner. I bought it from Steve in 2006, and he upgraded the headphone output cap and rewired the unit with shielded silver/teflon wire in 2007. Includes the tubes in the photos, my favorite set-up: RCA 5Y3GT (mid-60s), 1 matched pair 6N1P-EV (4/81), and a Raytheon Japan 6DJ8 (ca. 1970). Also includes the stock Sovtek 5Y3GT, a stock pair of JJ E88CC (6922), and 1 pair of cryo'd 6N1P I picked up at some point. The CSP2 accepts 6N1P, 6922, and 6DJ8 input tubes, and 5Y3, 5U4, 5AR4, GZ34, and 274B rectifiers, so there is plenty of room for tube rolling. Additional info at DECWARE / Zen Triode Preamp model CSP2 and in Skylab's great review.

On the Audiogon scale, the amp is a 9/10. There's some very light rubbing on the RCA jacks from pushing and pulling cables on and off. Otherwise, the amp's appearance is as received, including just a couple of small spots on the transformer (upper left back corner, one screw head) where paint is missing. Nothing that ever bothered me, and, from the photos, I think it's clear that the amp looks very nice.

Asking $600 plus shipping (~ 18 lbs. from zip code 77025). PayPal adds another 3%. Manual, original cheapie power cord, and original box also included. Will double-box for shipping. US and Canada sales only. Price/terms are firm.

Btw, I am a very junior Junior Head-Fi'er; three posts in four years.

I have plenty of only POSITIVE seller feedback on Audiogon and eBay, however, also as "fipple8".

Didn't happen. Just as well; a chance to re-think this one.
