UNIQUE TABOO MK II FOR SALE
05/01/13 at 01:21:20
 
TABOO MK II - ORIGINAL OWNER

MANUFACTURED SEPTEMBER 2010 - SN #44
BLACK FIGURED BASE & GOLD KNOB
V-CAPS
HAZEN GRID MODIFICATION
HEADPHONE OUTPUT WITH SPEAKER CUTOFF SWITCH
TWO SETS OF VARIABLE INPUTS WITH SWITCH AND ONE FIXED INPUT


This is a well seasoned unit that played in my office for about a year. The VCAPS give the unit a nice sweetness that defeats sibilance.  I sent this back to DECWARE in 2011 for a headphone jack. When it was there I had a speaker cutoff switch installed so the unit could play silent with no ambient noise from the speakers when using headphones.  I don't know if there is another TABOO MK II with this particular modification. As noted above, the unit also has two variable inputs and a fixed input for use with a preamplifier.  This is a versatile amp that has a nice, relaxed gain, which can be varied by use of either a 12AU7, 12AT7 or 12AX7 input. The lucid mode is a nice feature to lend some spatial widening to some recordings.  

The unit will be supplied with a pair of Russian Military 6P14P-EV (EL84 equivalent) tubes from the 1970's, a Svetlana Winged C 5U4G rectifier and a Sylvania 12AU7 input tube.

The replacement for this amp sells for $1,695. This unit with all the extras is being offered for $1,050 plus shipping.

Audiogon buyer backed out - NEWLY AVAILABLE AGAIN! Is that redundant?
