Try the amplifier Srajan Ebaen has raved about!
I've moved on from my beloved Crayon Audio CFA-1.2 to a PS Audio BHK setup and so I have to find a new home for this amazing integrated amplifier with its well-reviewed phono stage (though I did not use the phono stage, myself, since I used it with my Soundsmith Strain Gauge preamp).
This integrated has been widely reviewed, most famously by Srajan Ebaen of 6moons, who gave it a 2013 Blue Moon Award. It is still one of the handful of amplifiers that he uses to audition gear. You can read the full review here: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/crayon2/1.html
This Austrian gem has also been given a Highly Recommended rating by Matej Isak, of Mono & Stereo (http://www.monoandstereo.com/2015/06/crayon-audio-cfa-12-integrated.html). You can see Crayon Audio's info and specs at: http://crayon-audio.com/en-cfa-1-2-natural-aluminium/
From Mono & Stereo: “The range of the flexible adjustments it offers, the overall quality of construction, the unique aesthetic elegance, the robustness and hassle free operation, the amazing phono section and the outstanding sound it provides, are just positives that cannot be overlooked. It can form a basis for a phenomenal sounding high end audio system for music lovers and make them forget the medium for many years to come - if not for good. The Crayon CFA-1.2 integrated amplifier is a product worthy of my highest recommendation and will be used at Mono and Stereo as a reference for future comparisons.”
I give it a 7/10 because there are some smallfrom Fred Crane, the US importer for Crayon Audio and it has been in my house ever since with no problems.
If you're looking for an outstanding performer that does not eat up loads of space, this is the amplifier for you. I prefer it to many others I have heard. It comes with the original factory box, the remote, the manual, and a factory cord — nothing else. At today’s rate, its 4400 euro price is roughly $5,200 retail.
I would prefer a local buyer so you can see exactly what you’re getting and, if you’d like, to audition the unit on my home system. I will ship it within the continental US for a flat fee of $75. Low ballers and poor feedback buyers will be politely ignored. Thanks for looking.
