For sale is a beautiful amp from mastersound, the due venti se. Comes with remote. This el 34 amp sounds great with any speaker I have tried it with, from my audio physics to magnepans and anything else in between.Do not be fooled by the 20 watts per channel rating, it's a class A amp. Good bass for a tube amp. A hint of warmth but not the warm and mushy sound you may expect from a tube amp. I have provided a link to a review of this and the kt88 due trenta se. Note that the reviewer actually prefers this amp to the trenta. It's in fantastic shape and I don't have the original box so I'd prefer local pick up. Jj el34 tubes inside asking $ Thanks for looking.
Both MastersounD's 220 S.E. DueVenti and 230 S.E. DueTrenta are solid heavies of their breed. The term value applies squarely to these 'smaller' models of the Italian manufacturer. 2 x 30 watts in the DueTrenta produce more power of course but the 20 watts per side of the DueVenti are far from petite. Were it my decision, I'd reach for the lower-priced EL34-fitted DueVenti which for my tastes offers more resolution, more extension in the frequency extremes, a better sorted soundstage and, well - a higher live factor. Others will prefer the fuller, more voluptuous DueTrenta over the more highly present smallest MastersounD, hence a personal audition is called for.
220 S.E. / DueVenti:
Extended and detailed in the treble, astonishingly dry, elastic, fast and controlled in the bass. The midrange is transparent with a slight presence region emphasis which renders voices fetchingly close up.
The amplifier presents a large stage in all three dimensions including height. Instruments and voices are accurately placed to create an excellent overview particularly in the depth domain.
The 220 S.E. has fully matured macrodynamics which are due not least to its agile competent bass. Microdynamics are fascinating, with an intimate close-up of the proceedings.
