This unit is the Demo Unit that we have used at AXPONA and Capital Audiofest. I have used this unit in other Demo applications so it has maybe 150 to 200 hours on it. It replaced a PS Audio BHK and paired with single ended amps was a clear step forward. Will come with a full five year warranty on the unit and six months on the tubes. Five single ended inputs, a tape loop, two single ended outputs, and a truly amazing headphone amp makes this a very special centerpiece to any system. Even better, this unit is equipped with variable gain and you can switch between 0dB and 25dB making it highly flexible for both headphone and speaker use. The same circuits are used for both making this by far the best headphone amp I have ever hear. This is a factory demo unit and will come with the full five year warranty on product, six months on the tubes. I will pay for shipping or local pickup in Greenwich, CT. No Paypal or CC fees. Sales tax only if purchased in CT. Read the review here:https://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/artaudio9/artaudio.html
Price is $4299 discounted from $4999. Shipping in the lower 48 and any CC/Paypal fees are included. This is the manufacturers demo of the Vinyl One Copper Reference. This is fitted with variable gain which is controlled via a nob on the back. The Vinly One does not have a built in rumble filter to eliminate sub-sonic noise so I will include a KAB Electro Acoustics KAB RF1. First round of demo units are all available as we don't want these demos to get to old before they find a forever home. All are less than a year old and the bulk of use came at AXPONA and CAF. This unit is boxed up and ready to ship. It is in perfect condition. NOTE: This unit does not have a volume control on the front. There is no nob. It has a gain control on the back. You will see this unit in the right rack, on the second shelf from the top. It is the silver unit with no nobs. The sound on this unit is to die for and you will need to step up to something quite a bit more expensive to exceed it. I have paired with with a Lyra Kleos and Ortofon Cadenza Blue and in both cases the results were spectacular. The Vinyl One Copper Reference is the best of our world class valve phono stages. It works with both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridges. Like the base Vinyl One, it is a class-A, phase-correct design that uses a single 12AX7 per channel, one 12AX7 as cathode follower, and a 6FQ7 in its power supply. Its moving-magnet section provides 50dB of gain, with the moving-coil providing an additional 20dB. The input impedance is 100 ohms, and sensitivity is 2.25mV. Its rated frequency response is 20Hz - 20kHz +/- 1dB (moving magnet), 10Hz - 20kHz (moving coil). The Vinyl One is 18"W x 4"H x 10"D. Just like the Copper Reference amplifiers, this is also wired using only continuous cast copper and is fitted with Art Audio's Silver Foil Coupling Capacitors. The power supply in the Vinyl One Copper Reference is further enhanced with non electrolytic capacitors across the filter caps. I cover shipping and CC fees. Sales Tax if sold in CT.
Triode Lab 2A3M-II Monoblocks NOK 25,000, new price NOK 70,000 Better purchases than this is not easy to find. Best amplifier I've had but sold to fund new Audio PC for my system. About two years old, like new. Two sets of tubes included. The blocks are 2 x 9 watts and are based on the 2A3 tube. The monoblocks are completely without noise even on the most sensitive speakers In a class of its own according to tests: https://wallofsound.ca/audioreviews/the-gemini-equation-triode-labs-2a3m-ii-monoblocks/ Website: http://www.triodelab.com/2a3-set-mono-b-locks/
I have a mid 2012 Macbook Pro, Mackie CR3's, Behringer HPX2000 and I'm just kinda happy. Mackies are connected to 3.5mm headphone output of Macbook Pro to the 1/4 TRS inputs of the Mackies. The Mackies have a 3.5mm aux output I can run the headphones on but when I plug them in the speakers shut off. I read that my laptop has 3.5mm/optical mini toslink output. How can I 100% find that out? I installed a programs called Mactracker and it said I had it but I followed some other instructions to check and it didn't show I do. In any event, without upgrading the Mackies I'd like to improve my all around sound quality and achieve deeper bass expecially when wearing the heaphones which aren't very load from the Mackies. I cloud try going straight to the Macbook with them but I don't want to be moving the cable a lot, the jack already seems loose. Please help, this is what I kinda have in mind, keep in mind I know nothing about all this stuff. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07X238W58/?coliid=I3OM2SNSG0CQXA&colid=CC9E3PYS8XU9&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
