For your consideration is the great, overachieving tube integrated amplifier, the Cayin A-50T. If midrange glory is something you are are after, this will take you there, whether you opt for its ultra linear or its triode mode. It’s a sweet honey and I really hate to part ways with it but I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to cut back on the number of systems I have in the house and am thus hoping this finds a new home.
Cosmetically this is a 9/10. Functionally, there is nothing wrong with it and it has low hours. Includes tube cage, remote and manual. Comes with original tubes. The preamp tubes have very few hours on them as this amp responds very favorably to tube-rolling and I had vintage tubes in there most of the time. I strongly encourage the person who buys this to try different tube combinations as I was able to achieve a spooky sense of three-dimensional, holographic realism when I did. Original tubes are no slouch, however.
I am new here but feedback for me can be found at audiogon, I am user Dpsdennis and at eBay, user dpsdennis
There are a lot of positive testimonials about this amp online. Here are but two reviews:
As of January 2017 the lowest price I could find, new, for this amplifier was $1,600. Offering here for a reduced price of $875. Buyer pays actual shipping and paypal fees. I have the original boxes/shipping cartons/packing materials and it will be double-boxed, carefully packed and insured. Local pickup would be quite welcome. If any interested members in MN, western Wisconsin or northern Iowa are interested, let me know. Thanks for looking.
