Didn't think I'd be doing this, since I have really enjoyed this amp since I bought it last year (2022). But I am nearing the completion of my live edge dipole OB speakers, which will be bi-amped, and I don't think this amp will be the best choice for driving the midrange/woofer sections. Not that it couldn't ... I'm sure it would do an admirable job ... but I think it would be a shame to use in in that capacity. I'm looking at moving to a Class A SS amp to handle the duties. Plus, it wouldn't hurt for me to free up some funds to pay for these speakers!

The amp is in the exact same condition as when I bought it, which is excellent. It has been sitting on the shelf in my rack the whole time and hasn't moved. It will include a quad set of 350b tubes, a set of KT88 tubes, and all the associated rectifiers for each set of power tubes. I have the box it was shipped to me in, which I believe is the box that Craig (the owner of NOSValves) originally shipped the amp in when it left his facility. It was shipped to me from CA with zero issues, so I'm confident in my ability to ship it safely. And from what I've been told, and have every reason to believe, this was Craig's personal amp for some time.

The attached pic is the only one I have at the moment (I'm traveling for business), but I can certainly get you more. There are also a number of pics on the HiFi Haven and Klipsch forums, just search "NOS valves VRD". Looking for $2000 + actual shipping charges. I will calculate actual shipping charges for you. Or come pick it up, and listen to it while you're here. I'm in Lake Geneva, WI, so easy access from Madison, Milwaukee or the Chicago area. Reach out with any questions. I’m also interested in a partial trade for a Class A SS amp, such as Forte, Threshold, DIY Pass/First Watt, etc..

The output is 30W/45W in triode/UL mode. It is currently wired for 4 and 8 ohm speakers, and can be easily reconfigured for 16 ohm speakers.

Thanks for looking!
