**SOLD**Torii MkIII with Upgrades and Extras
02/21/14 at 20:10:49
 
I'm liquidating my entire system and so this too must go.  This is the best sounding amp that I've had in my system.  It is a true overachiever.  It has the brilliant, engaging midrange and dynamics of a SET amp with the extra kick of a push pull.  This model has been factory upgraded with Jupiter Beeswax Caps ($300 option) and  stepped volume attenuator ($150 option).  It comes with 2 bases.  It is pictured with the molded black wood base and will come with an extra natural maple wood base ($100 option) as well.  It also comes shipped in the "bullet-proof" custom fitted pelican case ($299 option) to assure a safe transit.

The amp comes with upgraded tubes:
Power tubes:  JJ 6CA7, which I find to be one of the best with this amp.  They bring out the emotion of the music.
Input tubes: AMPEREX USA USN PQ 6922 ($100) - one of the best (read joe's tub lore), detailed, lively, and musical
                  AMPEREX orange globe holland made 6922 ($75)
Rectifier Tubes:  RCA 5U4GB - black plates, tall bottle ($64)
Voltage Regulator Tubes:  Various

The price for this setup new with all options and upgraded tubes would be well over $3700.  My asking price is $2500 plus shipping and paypal fee.  The tubes will be shipped along with the extra base in a separate box.  If you wish I can ship the amp directly to Decware in order to transfer the lifetime warranty ($75 fee) and they will look it over and then ship it to you.  While at Decware you can have it upgraded to the MK4 if you like for $450.  The normal upgrade price for MK3 to Mk4 would be $700.  Essentially, you can get a MK4 for $2950 plus shipping saving at least $500 and the months long wait for build!!  However some people like the sound of the MK3 over the MK4 but its a preference.

Hi My name is Steve Jones.  I am a dentist in Kansas City and have 2000 in my paypal account and will transfer funds into the account as soon as I can.  I assume 3 to 5 days it will show up.  i am mantagonism on audiogon and have been buying equipment for years.  An audiophile friend of mine has educated (tried) on Decware and its attributes, so here goes.  I have some Avantgarde duo speakers that should work great with these.  He also agrees that I should keep these as MkIII's and that we should send them to Decware.  He mentioned that they don't even want the tubes so let me know what works for you.  If you can give me what makes sense to conclude this transaction, I would appreciate it.  You can contact me by email jonesstevew@yahoo.com or at 913-201-7079. Thanks
