As a combo with the SCD-10 MKII CD player (that we also have for sale), the pairing represents a state of the art presentation that has few equals. Its $45,000 price tag for the combo to begin with is a clear indication of its intention to be the reference standard in sound at this price point and higher. Minimalist in design just like the CD player, the SIA-25 is all abut the music and how it so admirably reproduces it in its full glory. Speaker selection is critical when pairing with the SIA-25 because you would want to as much as possible, use its 25W Class A to drive the speakers. So an efficient pair of speakers are preferable. The integrated amp by default will come out of standby in Class AB mode (which is 150W output). So if you want to use Class A, you would need to hit the button to select Class A. The Class A mode has a slightly more textured and richer mid-range when compared to Class AB. Some speakers we use showed a more tangible difference, like the Soundkaos speakers versus Focal for example. But regardless, the SIA-25 is one fine example where reference power can be squeezed into one box which many other two box pre/power combo fails in dismay. In our opinion, the SIA-25 is all about articulation. The presentation was precise, balance and cohesive. Imaging was 3D-like and surreal as if a fine tooth comb went through and removed the edginess from the soundstage. $25,000 is a lot of money for an integrated amp, but we know of a few customers who swear by them (especially high end reference integrated) and that they will trounce many pre/power combos in the same price bracket. The SIA-25 is one such integrated amp where you can start sharing the same belief.
Cosmetically, the SIA-25 is as minty as new. Previous owner just bought it at the beginning of 2017 with less than 100 hours of use since then. This is a hefty integrated amp and will be shipped in its original boxes with remote (which is rechargeable via its docking station) and AC cord.
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 somehow the item arrives damaged, the buyer will need to inform us immediately so that we can gets the claim process rolling. We will assist every way we can to get your money back. But this will be rare as we professionally pack every item that goes out to survive the rigor of shipping regardless of value. All orders will be insured and declared at full purchase value. 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. And that includes insurance claim should the package be damaged or go missing during shipping.
RETURNS: There are absolutely no returns for any items shipped outside the United States. International purchases for all 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.
We know this may be tough in some countries because of your high duties so we will make exceptions but you need to contact us first and work out the details to complete your purchase. We will not entertain any requests after you have made the purchase and paid for it.
PARTS OR REPAIRS: All items sold as parts or repairs are NOT returnable. Please read the listing carefully and understand what you are bidding/buying before committing.

If the labels are in any way removed or shows attempted action to remove it, we will be reporting the buyer to the relevant authorities for fraud. And if the buyer does a "switch-a-roo" where the labels have been removed or desecrated in any way, we will also report this fraudulent activity and will not honor an refunds or returns or exchanges.
