This Hafler DH-200 comes with...................... our PA-4SE amplifier board mod, PS-100 power 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-4 standard modification, the PS-200 power 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!

USED PRODUCTS



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.
