Purchased in mid December 2012 for $1800 ($1650 plus shipping, brokerage, customs for total of $1800).

Still under warranty. See email from Dec. 2012, from dealer below: (I have additional emails and can forward the originals to you)

Hi Tim,

It's GREAT to hear you so happy!

That M2 is about two-years-old and was a trade-in. Then completely
inspected by Nelson Pass to see that electronically it's as-new, and it has
a three-year fully-transferable warranty.

Happy Listening, Mark

This amp is a 2011 Tone Audio amp of the year. Link below to large PDF of Tone Audio. Review is on page 23 of the document.


Selling because I own 7 amps and something must go to fund a pair of Maggies. Very warm and musical amp. Like a tube amp, without the hassles and expense of tubes. And much quieter than a tube amp. Puts out 25 watts of single-ended, zero feedback, Class A power into 8 ohms. 40 watts into 4 ohms. For solo guitar, piano, and voices, this is world class. This is not a rock-bass head muscle amp. For jazz and classical, it's magic. With 25-40 watts, it is far more versatile than a SET amp, but it sounds like one. It had ample power for my Harbeths (rated at 86db but no impedance dips and easy to drive) and would probably work with something over 88-89 db.

Original Box and Manual.

New Retail price is $3240 plus shipping, brokerage fees, tax

Used, from the key US dealer, Reno Hifi, they usually go for $1650. Add shipping, brokerage, tax, you're at $1800 at least. That's when they are available used, and when Canada Customs doesn't ding you. And that isn't often.
