Default FS: KiT88 Integrated Amplifier *SOLD*

For Sale my KiT88 amp.

Fitted with Sowter U082s transformers and 6550 valves (which I prefer over KT88s). I built this from the kit and have tweaked it over the years. Iím clearing out some of my HiFi gear which is gathering dust and I simply donít use anymore.

Tweaks and modifications:
Sowter U082s OPTX - feedback cct tweaked to accommodate the transformers
6550 o/p valves - cathode resistors to 180R, 28W o/p
Input 6AUS Jan Philips
Splitter Edicron ECC82
Audio Note Coupling caps
Blackgates bypass caps
Tantalum resistors
Mcaps
schottky diodes
Alps Blue pot wired in pseudo shunt config
Tape/Source switch rewired: Tape = Power Amp in via Tape in RCAís; Source = Integrated amp inputs

Iíll be sad to see this amp go it has given me great pleasure over the years. Iím looking for £850.
The Sowters alone would cost the best part of £600 new and if you twist my arm Iíll throw in the original OPTX as well for another £50.

Iím happy to demo the amp and would strongly recommend collection from here (Chesham, South Bucks) as it weighs a ton! Or Iím prepared to travel within reason to drop off or meet up.

Regards

Neal

I've sent Neal a message on your behalf, on another forum.

Fingers crossed.

EDIT. I see Greg got there first.

Thanks to Neal (and his good friends on here) for a straightforward deal. Currently sitting here listening to them (powered by a Pi streamer) and sounding remarkably good. Many thanks, all.
