I am selling my DNA Stellairs because I just don't listen much anymore. It is sitting off far too often. It is a single ended amp. The current wait for this amp is about 2 years. I am the original owner, bought directly from Donald, and the amp lives in a smoke free home.

The serial number is 2. I'm asking $8000CAD or $6400USD (which is about the same). List is $6700USD, plus $400 in shipping costs, plus Canadian duty which comes to just shy of $10,000 cad.

The amp is is MINT condition and it comes with the stock tubes only, with less than 25 hours on them.

No trades.


• 2 pairs unbalanced RCA inputs

• Purist class A single ended triode design

• Output transformers custom made to DNA's specifications in England by Audio Note UK

• Flat and extended frequency response with very low distortion

• Zero feedback or other error correction trickery
Triodes are naturally low distortion when operated into a high impedance load such as a transformer with proper specifications. They do not require feedback to attain low distortion.

• Point-to-point hand wired audio circuitry using carefully selected audiophile components

• Quasi-dual mono power supply with separate filter chokes and capacitors for left and right channels

• Dual 3-pin & 4-pin XLR and 1/4" stereo TRS outputs

• All XLR and 1/4" TRS outputs provide the same power: 1.8W into 50 ohms, 900mW into 100 ohms

• 4-pin XLR output can be used with all headphones - not just the K1000 only. I labeled it "K1000" in honor of the legendary headphone which was the inspiration for developing the Stratus.

• XLR outputs are selectable between unbalanced (single ended) and balanced headphone drive

• XLR outputs have 8 ohm output impedance

• 1/4" stereo TRS output has selectable gain attenuation between 0dB and -6dB for greater volume control range on higher sensitivity headphones

• 1/4" stereo TRS output on full gain, 0dB attenuation setting has selectable output impedance between 8 ohm (Low setting) and 120 ohm (IEC setting)

• 1/4" stereo TRS outut on -6dB gain attenuation setting has selectable output impedance between 3 ohm (Low setting) and 115 ohm (IEC setting)

• Audio signal tubes are DC heated and 2A3 tubes include nulling pots for the quiestest noise floor

• Balanced choke-filtered 2A3 filament supplies provide a deep black background and outstanding layering

• Input selection via rear toggle switch

• TKD volume control potentiometer

• Tube complement:

6N1P input/driver tube
2A3 directly-heated power triodes
5U4G directly-heated rectifier tube

Input impedance: 50Kohms

Dimensions: 8.5 " H x 17" W x 14 " D (21.6cm H x 43.2cm W x 35.6cm D) including tubes and connectors & controls.

Mains voltage: 100/110/120/220/230/240V factory configurable


Amp, stock tubes, original box and packing.
