For sale are my Threshold S/450e Amplifier and T0 Preamplifier. The Threshold S/450e is in excellent condition given it's age. The amp is rated at 200 wpc with first 20% being in Class A. I do think it would benefit from a re-biasing as I think it is running rather on the cool side for a Threshold amp so it may not be getting full benefit of Class A. However, it still sounds really good. I also recently acquired a Pass Labs Aleph 30 that is full class A at 30 watts and I think the S/450e is just as warm sounding and probably better amp all around due to the higher overall output rating.

The T0 Preamplifier is essentially a FET 9e without the phonostage but with balanced outputs. I bought this to use the balanced outputs with my Threshold Amps. I had this fully re-capped and tuned by Jon Soderberg of Vintage Amp repair last year thinking I was going to keep this for many years. It has the beefier power supply and it doesn't have to drive the phonostage so as a linestage it is pretty nice. But I have moved to Pass Labs for my primary system so this is not being used.

Selling this because I have moved on to Pass Labs amp and preamp. Would prefer to sell local but would consider shipping at buyers expense. Would sell amp and preamp separately. Price does not include any paypal or shipping fees. Buyer is responsible for those fees. I would consider a trade for B&W 804N/S/D speakers with $s going one way or the other depending on condition of speakers. Thanks for looking.
