Up for sale is a Bottlehead Seduction phono stage built by me.
Upgrades include the C4S upgrade kit (installed), interstage and output caps upgraded to Auricaps, Hammond 1590J enclosure for extra shielding, installed pilot lamp, and a custom lower profile Wenge base.
The base will accommodate vibrapods or other feet (see pics), but currently has stock feet. I will also throw in a nice beefy right angle IEC power cord. Comes with stock EH 6922 tubes which have about 250-300 hrs. and the original assembly manual.
This unit has been totally dependable with a very smooth sound. Very quiet background with about 40db of gain. I built 3 other Bottlehead kits before building this one and had no trouble with it at all from the get go. I am selling because I've started building from scratch and built another phono stage with more gain that works better with my setup, And I'm trying to build up some funds before school starts again in the fall (read "starving student" with audiophile taste).
Total spent was about $550(not including labor), asking $325 OBO + shipping. I will cover Paypal fees. Open to interesting or partial trades. Mainly interested in headphone amps and/cans.
