OFF - FOR SALE: Air Tight ATM-3 Monoblocks - with extras - PRICE DROP $$ Featured
Air tight ATM-3 Monoblocks
Up for sale until Sunday - then Keepers.
Up for sale are my air tight atm-3 monoblocks. First the good news: these have been moded by the good folks at Triode Labs. These amps have the following changes made. First they run only in pentode, maximizing the sound capabilities of the excellent transformers. Frank tells me they put out an honest 90 watts per channel. Second, the volume pots have been removed from the circuit. Third, the input, speaker terminals and ac have been replaced with the very best cardas and futech has to offer. Fourth, the caps have all been replaced with best Mundorfs. . Fifth, I have another compliment of Mullard el34 fx2 to replace these if there were any problems. Sixth, the amps have the Tutay modification keeping the expensive el34 from premature burnout. Seven, the tube cages have been cooper platted to add to the appearance and resist noise nasties from the external environment. Finally, I have never ever had an issue sonically with these amps. The people at triode labs know tube gear like few others.
The Bad. The faceplates are cosmetically challenged. I hope the pictures do justice to the dings that are present on the edges of the faceplate on both amps. To me this was not an issue, but there those who really care about appearance this may be a biggie. Given the imperfections I am going to rate these as a 7 - if you are really fussy make it a 6.
I am not sure what the retail price of these amps are but new they are very dear.
PRICE DROP - NO TUBES INCLUDED
So why is larry selling these amps? Well I need more power for my newly acquired Tidal loudspeakers. If you love the tube sound and that of el34, these will not disappoint.
I really am reluctant to sell these and if no offers, there will be no tears.
I prefer not to ship these amps as there is enough dings and I have no boxes.
My apologies for any spelling or grammatical errors
