I found this ad and though I would pass along the opportunity to own a rare amp.

Nice find Lin, and still my favorite Decware amp....

I'm not sure what the letter configuration was on these amps, as far as model goes but this Torri needs a pre amp in front of it, as there is no input stage and no volume controls.

Chris K has one of these, with his CSP2 in front of it it sounds mighty good.

Just thought I would throw that out there....

I always thought these would be killer amps. Love the looks!

Lon, it is killer, no doubt. I think the price is just a bit high though.

It looks like a wonderful amp especially with the right pre driving it.
I'm guessing it's about the same output as my SE34I.
It's priced a bit high, as Zigi's pointed out.
I'm guessing the Hazen mod would make it sound mighty fine.

I think they are 12w/ch.

Lin, You're correct 12W per channel of PP goodness. You really need to run the EL34L tubes, not the EL34B's To take it up just a notch and get close to my personal amp you could run KT77's

Hazen mod works with this amp, yes. I'm not sure of the Hazen mod is negated when the KT77's are used.

I don't think the Hazen Grid works with KT77s.
