LATEST ITEMS FOR SALE
A demo Musical Design D-75C amplifier ............. Which is black on black and in
excellent cosmetic condition is now available. The sound of the D-75 throughout the
years has been beloved by owners. The tradition continues with even more transparent
sound than in previous versions. After listening to it you’ll be looking for the
tubes, but you won’t find any. It is both bench and listen tested. It’s available
at $795 with the full “new” warranty. Just like new but for less! Save $200 and smile.
This Hafler DH-200 comes with...................... our PA-4SE amplifier board mod,
PS-100power supply mod, hi-current gold binding posts and new 3-prong power cord.
Those capacitors that look so small in there have the same amount of capacitance
as in the original DH-200 and even higher voltage, 10,000uF/80 Volts! Modern capacitors
have greatly benefited from high-tech material processing - better quality, durability
and greatly reduced size vs energy storage. Who’s complaining?
Selling price is $749 with 1-year warranty. Cosmetics are good. *
A Hafler DH-500 is ready for your inspection .................... with our PA-4standard
modification, the PS-200power supply and gold binding posts. Oh my my it looks harmless,
but if you take it over to a friend’s house for a listen, he might not feel the same.
He might long for the incredibly dynamic, natural, transparent 3D quality in his
own system. I feel bad for him already. Cosmetics are decent but a few small scratches
appear in the face panel and there are some rusty areas on the chassis. If you’re
trying to imagine the sound just multiply the price by 4 or more! *Selling price
is $1195 with 1-year parts and labor.
* On the items here we can install an IEC power socket with supplied cord for $95
if you wish
—––This one is sold. We can make another like this one for you! –––– A custom Musical
Design SP-2B with outboard power supply................. is available. This all black
unit was used as a test bed for new preamp ideas. It turns out to be quite a bit
like our PasPro line stage preamp circuitry. It has a single 6922/6N23P type tube.
The power supply transformer is in an attractive outboard enclosure for the best
noise rejection. Don’t let the modest looking power supply fool you. That’s quite
a hefty little toroid transformer in there. There are eight OFC copper/Gold RCA jacks
on the back. This thing can ‘slam’. It is very nice looking too. We are asking $995
for this great looking and sounding preamp. This is one of a kind! If you prefer
shiny silver aluminum finish knobs, same size, that is no extra cost. —–––––––––––-If
you saw this and liked it I think we have the goodies to build another, but then
there would be two of kind! Oh well!
Elite Ultra Hafler XL-280 amplifier
You probably already know that the XL-280 has more speaker driving capability than
the earlier Hafler DH-200/220. If your speakers or you yourself need a bit more kick
then the XL-280 is a great choice. It has our PS-200J board with four-pole Jensen
caps, PA-3E Elite Ultra mod, Cardas Copper binding posts, OFC RCA jacks, new power
switch and IEC socket with heavy power cord. The dual-wound TP-200 transformer provides
the powerful beating heart for dual-mono power. For great 3D sound, superb soundstage
focus and more we use the Takman CF resistors. Not just a few, but almost all the
resistors in this amp are these superb Takman parts. The singularly neutral Silmic
II capacitors are used in the front-end. So you have an amplifier that is wonderfully
transparent, dynamic and sweet. The imaging is absolutely 3D and pinpoint. This totally
outstanding amp is selling for $1995. We urge you to compare it to anything!
USHER X-929speakers in excellent working/sounding condition but a few cosmetic issues(call),
piano black, $800/pair. Originally $2500. This is a file photo.
These are big speakers! We greatly prefer a local pickup since we don’t have the
factory cartons. We would consider meeting a buyer half-way for reasonable distances.
If you want these shipped we can call Usher and get the cartons, providing they still
stock them. And yes, they do come with grilles for $825 plus shipping.
Dyna PAS-3X tubed preamp with modifications............ including significant revisions
featuring a constant-current grounded-cathode 12AU7 line stage and passive RIAA EQ
in the 12AX7 equipped phono stage. High quality tubes are included. This is a very
different preamp compared to the original unit. The high current line stage has a
very low output impedance, wide dynamic range and solid, clear sound. There is an
upgraded volume pot for superior smoothness and clarity. A new power transformer
supplies the higher required current and the vastly enlarged power supply yields
a robust, clean sound quality. Good condition. Your fun times for $595 which will
seem a bargain when you check the innards! Now reduced to $495! 90 day warranty ------------------------This
one has been sold but expect a new one here soon.
FULTON GOLD SPEAKER CABLES..........have a huge gauge paired wire construction. These
classic cables are heavy and stiff. They look like 4 ga. These Bob Fulton designed
cables were audiophile classics for several years along with several other Fulton
wire products. We have pairs of 8.5', 28' and 43'. ---------$6/linear foot.
