AUCTION: VTL MB-125 Monoblock Amps -- GE Fatboy EL34's last year -- Flawless cosmetic condition
Selling my pair of truly exceptional VTL power amps recently (1 year ago) upgraded with eight very rare and gorgeous sounding NOS GE "Fat Boy" EL34 tubes and with GE 12AT7 tubes. As you might know, these tubes alone routinely sell for around $1000 for all 8 tubes. The VTLs are in exceptional operating and cosmetic condition and conservatively rated 8/10 due to age. I can find no marks of any kind on the VTLs. The VTLs were used in a smoke-free dedicated music room.
The VTLs are switchable between tetrode mode (125 watts into a 5-ohm load) and triode mode (60 watts into a 5-ohm load). The VTLs have RCA inputs and speaker binding posts that accept spades, banana plugs, and bare wire. Each amplifier uses two 12AT7 small signal tubes (one input and one driver) and four EL34 power tubes with an individual bias pot for each power tube. (Rectification is solid state for good bass.) Bias adjustment of the power tubes is easily accomplished with a small screwdriver and inexpensive digital multimeter as described in detail in the owner’s manual. The owner’s manual recommends adjusting the bias every 1,000 hours of listening or once a year.
I have one original shipping carton and it will be shipped in a double wall outer box to protect it. The other will be similarly packed using custom made rigid foam supports and double boxed. I've been on the receiving side of way to many poorly packed audio gear items and know how to pack for safe shipment. Local pickup available and Midwest central meeting point delivery possible. Otherwise shipping is a flat $150 in the continuous U.S. and includes insurance and PayPal fees.International shipping available to most countries and quoted upon request. However these are heavy items and you should expect international shipping to add significant cost.

This is NOT supposed to be a 365 day listing but US Audio Mart doesn’t allow editing the time period so I’m stuck.
So please consider the end time for bids to be Sunday, November 18 at 9:00pm Eastern time. I’ll sell and ship to the high bidder at that time.
Thank you for your interest and good luck bidding!
