Selling an Ecko integrated amp - NIB! I literally have been waiting months for it to arrive, since the amp has been back ordered for a while. I got tired of waiting and I also decided to go with separates, hence the sale. New list price is $2595.. Split shipping to lower 48 states at asking price. Check my perfect feed back on AudiogoN under Grk. Serious only please, if you have any questions. Also, please do all of your research...before you make an offer. Thank you.

'To summarise, this is a mighty special integrated amp, with no major flaws and many positive characteristics. There’s enough power to drive real world speaker loads, plenty of inputs, speaker A/B facilities and a classy little remote. The build quality and finish are outstanding, and the looks are distinctive, which adds a lot to the EV55SE’s appeal. Most critical of all, the sound is superb. Effectively this amp looks, feels and sounds like a more expensive product than it is and I’d have absolutely no hesitation in giving it a five star rating in a full review setting, in fact I’d say that it’s one of the finest amplifiers I’ve yet encountered at this price. I can’t wait to hear the soon to arrive Ekco EV55DP CD player/DAC.'
Also, check out the great reviews on "Stereomojo" and "Positive-Feedback". The amp I am selling looks exactly like the one in the website and reviews.
"The EV55SE Valve Integrated amplifier is the first vintage tube electronics product from EKCO. Designed as a Class AB Push-Pull amplifier, the EV55SE offers a choice between 28Watts RMS per channel in Triode mode and 55Watts RMS per channel in Ultra-linear mode. It comes with five (5) RCA inputs and A/B option selective loudspeaker outputs into 8 Ohms, controllable via the included remote control. Its chassis is made of protective cages/grilles finished with high-temp black paint to protect the valve tubes while the sides of the chassis are fitted with matched pairs of handcrafted solid wood panels (deep Louro Preto) in piano gloss finish adding to the classy and elegant feel of this valve amplifier."
