Received it brand new yesterday. Less than 1 day old. It is $1,350 direct from Musical Paradise https://www.musicalparadise.ca/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=59&product_id=55 . An incredibly musical tube amp. Smooth, sweet, detailed, dynamic. Gobs of power. Class A 55 watts per channel. This amp uses all quality parts. It's a very high quality amp. My speakers have zero hiss or buzz connected to this amp. It is magnificent sounding I can't praise it enough.

Condition 10/10. Comes with 8 stock tubes, 4x KT120. 4x 6J8P. Along with the stock tubes I will also add in 10 upgraded 6SJ7 tubes suggested by Garry, the designer. The 6SJ7 is smoother and more liquid.

This is a killer deal for $1,100. Only catch is you have to pick it up or I can drive it to you in the Boston area. If I sell it through paypal and ship it the cost will add up and you might as well buy it directly from the website instead.

Additional note: This amp has a volume control knob, But it also has a switch to bypass that section. It also comes with a remote control that uses one of those small circle battery. The battery might not be included cause I haven't seen it.

Added more info about the remote and volume.

I'm very curious to pair this amp with the Magnepan LRS. For $1,100 + Magnepan $650, I have a feeling this combo will produce airy gold.

This has always looked like such a solid amp for the price, to me.

Just curious; why selling so soon?

This amp runs really hot for my environment. I don't seem to have a good area to place it. I don't know if the tubes sound better after more hours of break in but if it does I don't think I can bring myself to go through this sale.

Edit: I found out tube amps run really hot compared to other gears

I definitely get that, this beast probably needs a good amount of ventilation. Tube integrated with 55 wpc is just a beautiful combination at this price!
