Gosh! It's been years since I saw one of these. It was one of the best amps I ever owned. There were a lot of issues with them, but if you had a good one it was "great" .Selling my SinglePower Extreme headphone amp. I bought this amp new and it has had no issues. A number of years ago there was a lot of discussion regarding the construction techniques used in these amps. I contacted Kevin Gillmore who offered some suggestions regarding some parts replacements. Essentially I replaced the stock transformer with a custom over-spec'ed(120v @ 500ma, 6.3v @ 10a 123va) one made by Jack Elliano at Electra-Print Audio and also replaced the filament rectifier with a similarly over-spec'ed unit. The amp had never exhibited any issues but I wanted to be safe. I also inspected the circuit board for any signs of over heating and found none.
The amp is a tube rollers dream and comes with three adapters for using tubes other than the 6SN7. These adapters will support 2C51 and 12AU7 and 7N7 and 6F8G tubes. I will include 3 of 6F8G, a 12AU7, a 2C51, a 7N7 and a pair of lightly used Tungsol 5889s. The Tungsols alone are worth $200.
The amp is in very good shape with only slight cosmetic scratches appropriate to its age. The tubes shown in the photos are not necessarily the tubes that will come with the amp except for the Tungsols and the 6F8G.
Asking $395 plus $30 shipping to US only. I will absorb PayPal fees.
Thanks for looking...
