Special projects and used amplifiers

Time to split up the special’s page into two so one for headphones and another one for electronics.  Here I’ll list what my more unusual amplifier projects plus any other piece I’m selling.  Feel free to contact me at spritzer@mjolnir-audio.com if you are interested in any item here.  I will reply to every mail so if you haven’t received a reply within 24 hours then feel free to send me another email.  Email gets lost all the time or is flagged as spam.  All prices in US dollars (USD).

Ahhh the Stax SRM-T8000. I bought this one as the first used unit to hit the market anywhere as I just had to try the new flagship amp. I got it from Japan but we quickly figured out how change to any voltage so it is now set to 240V. This is serial number 26 so early first batch for people who care about that. It is mint in every way and while Kevin Gilmore and I have both opened it up to see what the circuit contains, it is still perfect. The screws were not in the top as Stax screws always get scratched with use so they were kept secure until the amp ships out.  It comes with everything a new amp would come with except the wait time…  😉

I bought this Headamp Aristaeus last year to use with my HE90’s. After doing a comparison recently with the new Sennheiser HE-1 I figured out that I hadn’t used them for over a year, hence it being up for sale. It’s the DACT model and and set to 230V. Comes with everything I got from Justin including the box. It’s a lovely amp, so well made and it does sound great with the HE90, Lambdas and even the SR-009. It starves the latter one a bit in terms of power but the soft nature of the amp makes up for it. The amp and PSU are in perfect condition and come with spike protectors.

This is the original test bed for the Pure Bipolar which was never supposed to be turned into an amp but after my laser guy damaged a set of front and back panels I thought, why not finish it and offer one of these that is slightly cheaper.  On the inside it has all the usual traits of a PureBipolar except it has the newest PCB’s and new input devices that I’m trying out.  These are actually new old stock and no longer made so I’m testing to make a slightly different version.  The amp also has a slightly tweaked power supply and an even bigger transformer.

The reason this one is cheaper is that the right hand side of the front panel has some damage to it.  I tried to take a picture of it but it just wouldn’t show properly but yeah, not acceptable for a normal amp.  The left hand side of the back panel has some minor damage too but it’s not really noticeable.  It seems my laser engraver dropped the panels but he never fessed up so I’m stuck with them.  Over all this is a normal PureBipolar amp that has minor damage.  117V or 230V operation not an issue with an internal switch.
