Default AKSA 100N+ power amp for sale

With some reluctance, the time has come for me to sell my AKSA 100N+. This is Hugh Dean's classic 100 Wpc power amplifier with the Nirvana Plus upgrades.

I built it as a dual mono amp using Plitron transformers. The chassis is a custom design with a front panel machined from 3/8" aluminum and the sheet metal made from 16 AWG 6061-T6 anodized aluminum. The front panel bears an on/off switch and a pair of low-level LEDs, while the rear panel has Neutrik RCA input connectors and multi-way speaker binding posts - all gold plated.

The amplifier's sound quality is superb and the chassis is virtually unmarked. The whole thing is as good as new. I have owned amplifiers by Quad and Linn in the past - in my opinion, this one is better.

The amp is on the west coast of Canada and the price is C$1,000 (about US$750). I'm happy to share the shipping cost within most of Canada. We can discuss it case by case for the USA. It will weigh about 24 lbs.

Hello, Hugh. Good to hear from you!

I'm in the latter stages of building a new pair of speakers which are going to have active crossovers. They will need a minimum of six (preferably eight) channels of amplification. Adding more AKSA channels will blow my already fragile budget, so my trusty 100N+ has to go. It's been a wonderful piece of kit and has performed flawlessly.

I run it via a Benchmark DAC and a Goldpoint selector/stepped attenuator (no preamp) and can't imagine a more effective system. It's far too good to use in a garage or workshop system (and I have a Linn integrated amp for that anyway), so it's time for it to find a new owner. C'est la vie.

Hope all is well with you,

Em
