Reduction on the Wam for this classic beauty, plenty of great reviews on-line and looks great on the hi-fi rack! £1700 - Comes with all documentation, original handbook, original EAR packaging and it had a complete clean up and service by Mr T de Paravicini middle of 2018, some dry solder joints renewed and I believe a power valve replaced and checked for suitability. In very nice condition, there are two tiny small scuffs on the middle chrome housing, but you have to look over the top of it for it to really show, otherwise almost mint elsewhere. The front fascia is clean, free of marks and the gold coloured rotary dials have minimal signs of use or wear. Included also is an after market power cable, a box of valves, 7 of Edicron 6l6GC, however, not a complete set but almost. I'm certain the amp is currently fitted with Svetlana's. Some specs below: Parallel Push-Pull pure Class A circuit stereo valve power amplifier with control unit built in. 6 line inputs. 50 watts per channel output into 4, 8 or 16 ohm. Happy into any load. Push-pull from input to output. Low overall feedback. Winner of the Absolute Sound (USA) Golden EAR Award 1999. Valves List - 2 x ECC83, 2 x ECC85, 8 x EL34 Power output - 50 watts/channel (30Hz - 15kHz at 1% THD int Power Consumption - 200 watts total I.M.D. - Less than 1% at any level from 10mW to 50 Wa Output Damping Factor - 12 Power Bandwidth - 15Hz - 40kHz at less than 3% THD Input Sensitivity - 200mV Signal to Noise Ratio - 85dB Size - W 16'' (405mm), D 16'' (405mm), H 6'' (150mm) Weight - 20kg Input Impedance - 47k Ohms Some more pics: A Google search will bring up an old advert from another forum, which is the same amp and the pictures are clearer. Thanks for looking, any questions please PM me and we'll discuss. I'd rather not post, it's very heavy, if it helps we can discuss alternatives. If you require post, it will require you to organise a suitable courier with insurance. Ade / Parcelmonkey
Classic little 200 wpc amp, hefty little lump. Its unusual as its a magnetic field amplifier*. 120v USA Voltage you'll need a step down. Airlink do some nice ones.) This is in very nice conditionand had me frankly astonished when Bob ICHM brought it over to have a listen, I greedily had to have it. Only for sale as I'm getting back into cycling and can't afford two expensive hobbies! These are scarce and generally go for between £200 and £350 (generally ratters too) very very rarely appearing on these shores. Many of them were black, so its nice to see a silver (toward champagne) one. The LEDS are cool on the front too. £200 posted tracked - its heavy at 13lbs for a 7" cube! Limes not included. Looks expensive so high on "WAF". Looks hardly used, Bob Carver upset a lot of people with the high end sound of his amps given the relative price point. *"Magnetic field coil power amplifier" - audio amplifiers of the vacuum-tube era used transformers, incorporating coils of wire, to convert the high-voltage, low-current output of the output tubes to a low-voltage, high-current output suitable for loudspeakers. Output transformers are no longer necessary with amplifiers, including Carver's, that use transistors. Carver's U.S. Patent 4,218,660, first applied in his model M400 power amplifier, describes a power supply whose input switches on and off at an ultrasonic rate to adapt to the varying power demand of the amplifier. The innovation is in the power supply, not the amplification circuitry, and in the use of switching, not in the use of a coil or coils. http://www.synthfool.com/ebay/Carver_M-400_Manual.pdf
