View Full Version : 2A3 single ended triode home audio amplifier FS

01-31-2006, 03:57 PM
Due to unexpected financial issues coming up, I'm forced to sell this beautiful 2A3 amplifier. It's based off John Broskie's Aikido concept, which makes it possible to get very low noise out of a directly-heated triode like the 2A3. Uses high quality parts, like Transcendar 3K output trannies, Hammond power transformer and a heavy-duty Motorola choke. Vishay/Dale resistors, stuff like that. Comes with a few replacement rectifiers - RCA 5V4GA, JAN-Centron 5R4 (the potato-masher), and a US-made 5R4GB, all NOS. You'll need a pair of 12AX7's and of course a set of 2A3's to run this amp.

Buyer will pay for shipping - I'm going to double-box this and insure it. Local pickup is always welcome if you live close to Blacksburg, VA or Hillsborough, NC.

Thanks for reading this. A link to the Ebay auction is in my signature, or if you want to make me an offer, I'd be glad to sell it to you off-Ebay. PM me with your offers.
