Wow, VD :!: :o Ang dami niyan ah. :o That's not only cleaning the house, but cleaning the mansion. :o

I agree, with vintage stuff gone, and your Koetsu Rosewood on hand, you will soon to be sworn in as Ultra Hi-End Dog. :)

those seriously considering to get vintage stuff are strongly advised to visit the house on sunday. i will give a bit of history of each equipment.

for info, vintage amps are being sold as-is. it is recommended a qualified technician gives it a check-up if you intend to use it regularly.

my fishers were sourced from the same guy who supplies VTV the amps they feature in the magazines. the 202-B is in great shape but i have not fired it in ages. you need to reform it yourself...

the heathkit is a rare and cute single-ended el84 integrated in an all black chassis with gold-plated knobs. very pretty and very dusty from the attic! last time fired-up was 5 years ago. i remember a slight hum indication the filter caps may have to be replaced. once this is restored this is a great piece of a true classic. they rarely show-up at ebay nowadays!

ike's voights will go for only 30k with the super rare and sought after rs1354. there are only TWO of these voigts in the world - ike's and mine! ;-)

the brines fostex were finsished by same guys that did ike's voigts - finishers from trebel piano. cost 25k when first released but letting go for a superbargain of 15k. this is an authorized brines-fostex floorstander. drivers are mint and has not broken in. grab it if you have SET amps or PP tube amps. perfect match for the t-amps!

the eico hf35 is not on the list but was for sale last month. very surprised no one grabbed them last month. this amp floors modern amps including the marantz or mcintosh. i decided to give this a level-up restoration and modify the pre-amp section from a mullard penthode ef86 to a mullard 12au7/cv4003. that will be a truly unique all-triode classic preamp/driver 35wpc el34pp amp. gamby, will keep you in mind if i decide to sell soon...

msm/ihj, well, that is just the vintage stuff that's not being used lately....i still have a few classics i use regularly - eico, dynaco, quad, heathkit, fisher, tannoy, etc. these stuff was the 'hi-end' then, and to me, still the 'hi-end' even now :-D

yeah, looking forward to the champion-magnum/koetsu-rosewood combo soon ;-)

giving way to a summer renovation...maybe an electrostatic may find its way in... hehehe
