    Hi,

    I love that baby blue retro tube device! What is it? I found some images on the WWW more importantly where can I get one? That would pass with my wife!

    Thanks. Its a Magnavox 8802 stereo tube amp push/pull 6V6 custom build. It came out of a 50's console. It is not something you can buy but you can certainly make one to look this way. Mine was built by a guy by the name of Dave Ricciardi.

    I’ve done some digging but I can’t find him can you PM me contact details I might commission something if he’s interested

    He has done a couple different amps that I have seen. Both Magnavox. I will reach out to him and ask if I can send you his contact info. He is not doing this as a business as far as I know. I think for him it is just a hobby. Let me see if I can get a hold of him.

    I had a project in mind it may or may not appeal to him

    Well I sent him and email so we will see what he says. I didn't say what you wanted. I just informed him that you might be interested in commissioning an amp build. I figure if he says its ok then you two can discuss it and see where it leads.

    I read that a lot. People say they sold it but wish they hadn't. It is a great unit thanks. Mine is the signature version.

    Everyone has such clean and tidy rooms. My office is a mess with cables and gadgets all over the room. The music sounds great, though.

    The speakers and DAC. The source, a separate laptop, is barely in the photo off to the right on its own little stand.

    I think you’ll find that most of us took the pictures either right after we installed all the gear or right after cleaning. :)

    How do those little Micca speakers sound? Look like a prime candidate for my desk to be honest
