Opera Reference KT-88 tube amp
This lush amp with a very non-tubey bottom end is available in Pittsburgh PA, or near Baltimore/Harrisburg/Philly. I could be persuaded to ship. This amp retails for $2500.
Things this sounds better than in direct comparison: (as much as I like them....) Sophia Electric Baby & El34, Odyssey Khartago, various gainclones, Onix SP3.
New completely new matched quad of JJ kt-88's (~$250).
Sounds great. Beautiful cherry wood on top. Massive trasformers (~50lbs). Only a couple of hard to see scratches on the front plate. UPS caused an internal injury to this and I had to have the power button/assembly repaired ($230 repair receipt available). I'm extremely busy, but if you're a serious buyer, stop buy for an audition.
Quest for Sound
From the reviews: "One more quality of the 6.6 is its good attitude for well-developed holographic dimensions. In particular, I was pleasantly surprised by the height, but neither the depth nor lateral dimensions showed any noticeable limitations either. This holography even if it does not show extremely marked chiaroscuro, features a good overall level of air, leading to a pleasant interpretative breath."
Yeah, it sounds really nice.

Okay, price is now $1000, and I'm willing to ship.
If you have interesting trades in mind I'll consider them as well.
