For sale is an original pair of Quad II mono blocks in very good working order. Possibly the most famous amplifier in the history of hi-fi, the Quad II was such a success that its manufacturer changed name – Acoustical Manufacturing Company became Quad. It's actually a mono power amp, which means you need two for stereo – one for each channel – and a preamp to control volume and source selection. Because it's the quintessential valve amplifier, with a look that's unmistakably post-war. It's like a mad scientist has taken an angle-grinder to a T-Bird and screwed some light bulbs into the top. It's also still capable of mesmerizing sonics when partnered with the right equipment. This pair is fully tube and ready to play including moded RCA input jacks and come with toster style power cords and ON SALE NOW FOR ONLY $1,200

Selling my Audiosector DAC. NOS (Non oversampling) DAC. Highly regarded piece designed and made by Peter Daniels of DIYaudio. They often come case less but this one is housed in a beautiful Aluminum case with matching power supply. This is the upgraded version with black gate electrolytic caps. It also has a discrete Bobken regulator for the digital section (which was a special request item). This is the full blown version of Peter"s design tweaking the 1543 chip to the max with fully regulated power supply with selectable two digital inputs and Balanced XLR out. I've have the Audio Sector DAC and compared with a Peachtree Decco2 with Sabre DAC when used only as a DAC. It's true that they don't sound anything alike. I much prefer the Audio Sector's sound. The Decco2's DAC sounded unnaturally airy. Many might like this trait. Decco2's implementation of the Sabre DAC might not be close to ideal. However, I am not a fan of it's sonic characteristics. This exceptional version of Peter's DAC is ON SALE NOW FOR ONLY $1,500.00

If you need or want surround, there are plenty alternatives, but if you are looking for solid 2-channel playback, none of them are as straightforward as the RX-4508, and none of them will likely sound as good at the same price. The RX-4508 offers 2 regular analog inputs (for CD players and such), an MM phono input and AM/FM antenna input for the built in RDS tuner. There's no digital input, which I think is an omission that should really have been there. Then again, perhaps having Bluetooth is already enough. For the sound quality at least, as I will explain below, there is no need for a proper digital input.
