Selling a pair of Single ended Direct Heated Triode (DHT)monoblocks made by Cary Audio. MANY UPGRADES LISTED BELOW. Labeled Audio Electronic Supply AES (Lower line of cary audio). Uses the same transformers and parts but overall cheaper cosmetic hardware. No fancy gold badges. Those are only reserved for CARY AUDIO amps.
Factory assembled. Point to point wiring. Very neat and tidy inside. If you look closely at the pictures (back end of the amp), you can see the transformers labeled "Cary".
SE DHT or Single Ended Direct heated triodes just like the 300B and 2A3 amps has a certain purity in its sound that can never be matched. Too bad, the 300B and 2A3 has no juice and cannot drive most commercially built speakers. NOW! with this amp, you have 14W of pure single ended triode bliss at your disposal.
Amp has independent volume pots and can be used direct in as a power amp or as an integrated amplifier. If you have read about big power triodes, here is a chance to try one yourself for a decent cost. I will guarantee after listening to big plate tube amps, most of everything like KT88, EL34 6550 etc will sound broken. There is just that much more everything especially the effortless sound in these big power tubes.
Tube compliment pre monoblock:
1x Svetlana SV572-10 DHT power triode
Power rating 14 watts/ch pure single ended triode.
The tubes are all extremely low hours and the SV572-10 tubes are brand new less than 20 hrs of use.
The amps recently came back with a good bill of health including some modifications by a very reputable technician.
Here is the job list of what was done to it recently:
1. Amp cleaned, re biased, calibrated, tested to meet and exceed specs
2. Coupling caps upgraded
3. Input RCA jack changed to teflon gold plated type
4. Speaker binding posts upgraded to Audio Note Silver
Amps are in great shape rated 7/10 and shows some signs of minimal wear. Please look at the detailed pictures so you have an idea how it looks.
Asking $1100 for it.
