In the realm of digital amplifications, this Spectron Musician II is among the best there is. It is probably only supeseded by the more expensive Jeff Rowland amps (in our opinion) and definitely more musical sounding than the Bel Canto and NuForce amps that we have sold before. This particular amp is capable of producing 500W in 8 ohms, 600W in 4 ohms and 1,200W in 2 ohms. That is a lot of power for an amp that had a price tag of only $3,500. And unlike other digital amps, the Musician II is a pretty hefty (47lbs) and physically imposing amp as compared to other digital amps. That is due to its huge toroidal transformer situated in the center of the amp. Most other digital amp manufacturers just use a small transformer in their amps.
We have never had the chance to listen to a non-upgraded Hybrid Plus model(a $1,300 option) but based on what we have heard in our system, it ran along the same lines on what the previous owner said about the amps after the upgrade - it was more organic sounding, its transparency was less "cold" and clinical and it took on a nicely controlled warmth that borders on Class A sounding. The soundstage was nicely weighted with well defined edges and firmly controlled. It paired very nicely with a variety of monitor and florstanding speakers we have in the store. On Spectron's website, they said that with the Hybrid Plus Upgrade, it brought the Musician II closer to its $7,200 Musician III MKII amplifier. For under $2,000 now, this is an excellent amp for the money.
Cosmetically,the amp looks really good. A minor ding on the left edge of the faceplate and minor scuff marks on its cover but overall, looks pretty presentable. A spot around the infrared lens cover has some paint scuff but its minor. Amp is internally switchable for 230V operation and is currently set for XLR input. To use its RCA input, you need to flip a switch inside. Amp will be securely packed for safe shipping and a copy of the manual will be included (very important).
Terms and conditions - PLEASE READ!
PRODUCT INFO: All items are fully tested and evaluated. If an item is not working properly, it will be mentioned in the listing. So read carefully. Cosmetic conditions will also be clearly laid out in the listing. But because everyone has a different standard, what is an 8/10 condition to me may be a 6/10 condition to you. So it is important you check out every picture on the listing. All pictures are of the actual item and taken just prior to listing it on eBay.
WHAT KIND OF PRODUCTS WE SELL: We are a used hifi store so everything is used. So no warranty of any kind is offered or expressed. If there is a balance factory warranty from the manufacturer, you should check with them to see if it’s transferable. See above paragraph, everything is tested prior to selling and if there is any issue, we would list it in the listing. So it’s important you read every word in our listing. Occasionally, we may get dealer demo units, NOS (New Old Stock) or dealer excess inventory. Again, you need to check with the manufacturer if they will continue to honor any kind of warranty to you.

If you want us to declare it at a lower value, you will need to fill out a form authorizing us to declare it at the amount you want us to and that you will assume all risk at the lowered value.

RETURNS: There are absolutely no returns for any items shipped outside the United States. The only exception being vintage gear. If the listing is listed as vintage gear, no returns will be entertained for domestic or international purchases. International purchases for all other items are "as-is". The buyer assumes all cost of return shipping and handling. The only variation of this is if the item you receive is not the item you bought. In the rare event you have a change of mind (buyer's remorse) after receiving the item; we may take the item back under our buy back quote or impose a re-stocking of 20% of the original purchase price. Cost of return shipping is your responsibility. This is a case to case basis and not an outright offer to accept every and any returns back. This is why it is important to read our listing carefully. Everything and anything is described in it with all pertinent information for you to make an informed decision. If you have any questions, ASK!
DECLARED VALUE: All overseas purchases will be declared based on purchase price. NO EXCEPTION. This is because;
1) For your protection as the declared value is also the insured value.
2) eBay and PAYPAL policies dictate that all declared value must be the purchase or transacted price.
