Gear for sale

My custom amps and preamps

From time to time I have new custom pieces for sale that are built ahead.  They are what they are and you can choose output capacitors, but that is about the only customization possible.  They can be wired for 240 VAC input if you are outside of N. America.  You never know what I will have so check back as this list changes monthly.  It is a chance for you to skip the build queue. Currently I have: Schiit YGGDRASIL DAC $1799 Selling my Schiit Yggy DAC.  I sent it in last year to have the latest analog ugrade board installed.  It has the best USB board they produced a year ago.  I think it is Gen 5.  These routinely go for $1999.   it is in perfect shape and works perfectly.  Drop me a note if you are interested.     

Brand New D Sachs Model 2 preamp  $2499

(sold, sorry.  I will try and get another one built ahead)

I have a brand new preamp in a cherry case.  This one has all of the options included including a premium tube set. cherry case with black panels two pairs CV181 tubes (PSVane black glass) one set of XLR inputs using the excellent Cinemag Line Transformers 3 pairs of RCA inputs 2 sets out output capacitors and outputs First output is for tube amps and any amplifier with >80K input impedance.  It uses the wonderul Polish made Duelund copy oil caps that I use in my own preamp.   They sound every bit as good as a Duelund cap to me.  I can upgrade to larger cap value if your amp is lower impedance.  $80 for 1 uF Polish oil cap (47K or higher amp), or $125 for 1.5 uF oil cap for 30K or higher impedance amps.  Larger values are possible with Mundorf silver oil caps if your amp is <30K input impedance Second output is wired to a pair of 3.9uF Jantzen film  >10K input impedance. All signal path wiring is the wonderful Duelund 20 gauge tinned copper stranded wire. 64 step remote Khozmo attenuator MY NEW MOD that allows for the usual 6X5GT rectifier as well as a 6BY5, which has FAR more current capability and sounds even better than a Bendix 5852, the mil spec 6X5 type.   Works great and there are 6BY5 tubes for under $10 all over epay and other vendors.   You can still use the Bendix or any 6X5 type, but the 6BY5 sounds better:)  No, don’t email me and ask how to do it!  You figure it out……
