Michaelson & Austin Tvp-x Valve Pre Amp 1984 A Vintage Classic Paravicini Design

If you are looking at this ad then you are probably well aware of the quality and reputation of the quintessential audio company Michaelson & Austin of the UK brand and their products which was founded in 1982 by. Clarinettist and Hi-Fi enthusiast. Who now owns Musical Fidelity. However, what we have here is a fine example of British audio history with the classic Michaelson & Austin TVP-X Thermionic Valve Pre-Amplifier in polished chrome and black with white lettering. While many of Tims designs are based on the engines and dash boards of classic motor cars, the TVP-X features include: Augmented chassis grille housing 12 ECC81/83 Valves, Stand By/Off, AUX, Tape 1+2, Moving Magnet and Moving coil phono inputs, Stereo/Mono switching, Subsonic Filter On/Off along with separate Main plus Left/Right attenuated volume control poteniometers and separate power supply. There are multiple inputs at the back along with 1/2 RCA outputs. Regarding the history and kudos of this pre-amplifier, this TVP-X has been used as a reference pre-amp and it has been a dream to listen to and operates without major issue. The work that Eddie Fincham meticulously, skillfully and sympathetically did included replacing some dated capacitors and resistors, fixed the power and stand by lights, fitted new gold plated RCA sockets along with adding a shaffner filter recommended to lower the noise floor further. In addition the pre/power supply connection cable was replaced and due to the configuration of the additional power sockets at the back the sockets were changed for safety reasons and to allow the unit to benefit from it’s full power potential. I have taken numerous additional pictures of the pre/PSU internals if anyone want to see more. Serial Numbers have worn over time. With regards to the sound of the Michaelson & Austin TVP-X. Whether listening to Jazz, Classical, Rock or Reggae, the TVP-X produces a full range and detailed vintage analogue sound-stage with excellent wall to wall stereo imagery. The bass is deep yet smooth and sounds neither tiring or bloated. Moreover, when partnered with some decent high end kit the treble and midrange have ample separation, air, detail, depth and clarity where voices, horns, pianos and strings produce a natural instrument sound quality which effortlessly ooze and float from the speakers. As for t he cosmetic condition. However, considering it’s age this Michaelson & Austin TVP-X is in very good condition and good working order with use and age related scuffs, rust and scratches and some paint removal on the power supply chassis top, sides, front and edges although nothing too serious or that detracts from it’s good looks and in my opinion just adds to it’s vintage charm and character. All the original chassis screws have been lost although cosmetically the chrome front is relatively scratch free and as such I’d rate it as 8/10 for cosmetics although 10/10 for sound. Operates using a 13amp plug. (See pictures of item powered on) Comes fitted with full set of Brimar and Mullard valves included for free. Finally, this is truly a museum piece and one of the most collectible and rarest Tim De Paravicini designed valve pre-amplifiers with less than a handful in existence and you will be hard pressed to find another like it in this condition anywhere (Hence the Price). This item will be well packed and securely boxed to insure that it arrives to you in as described condition. Tape 1 and Tape 2 Record. Tape 1 and Tape 2 Monitor. Resistance switching 100 K-Ohms (47KOhms/25kOhms). Capacitance Switching 25pf (400pf/200pf). 2 X Earth post.

Check out Ampstack on Facebook. Selmer PA 100/6 S. Six channels, two reverb, two high impedance with the echo loop, two plain. The reverb is built in, the echo is a loop needing an external unit. This is a really serious device, really heavy, lot of iron, with a choke. Fully serviced and recapped. Pictured without valves as back ordered, but biased up for a set I have about, or can do a deal unvalved. Obviously this is a heavy lump, but I can have it couriered, would massively prefer collection though. The item “Selmer PA 100/6 S. V.

Burman Pro502 electric guitar combo amplifier valve amp tube vintage British 502

One of the greaest guitar amplifiers ever made. The no compromise engineering led to a high price and not really breaking the mainstream, but Status Quo, Thin Lizzy and Killing Joke used Burman amp when they could afford them. Lots of gain available with Burman stacked gain controls, active mid gives crazy EQ range compared to crude FMV tone stacks. Recapped, revalved, had a life though, so beat up. Obviously this is a heavy lump, but I can have it couriered, would massively prefer collection though.

Not fully sure what to call this one, but reckon it was a Sola Sound branded Vampower build originally, but the clipped off front panel might have been factory, no real need to have clipped it off for the presumably new sleeve in its history. Other half of the intact example had the model SS100. Its basically a vampower, with the bite control. Clearly had a life, and seems to have a power resistor that wasn’t soldered at one end from new, but it apparently worked enough to have been used a lot. Put new caps in underneath the chassis to retain the symmetry on the top, few resistors and such replaced inside. The built in’bite’ distortion is not to my taste, the clean is mighty, but think that distortion is part of the Vampower magic people are after. Obviously this is a heavy lump, but I can have it couriered, would massively prefer collection though.

Kelly amps are kind of a rare boutique version of Selmers. This in particular is a rare variant therein as it is 100w, don’t really see this format of Selmer in 100w, those are generally SV style. This is a simple and great sounding amp, all made on tag strips inside, two simple three knob channels, fantastic clean sound, loads of headroom. Definitely had a life but been thoroughly gone over, recapped, various drifted components complaced and revalved. Definitely don’t come up often. Ideally should come and try it out. Got instruments and cabs here. Obviously this is a heavy lump, but I can have it couriered, would massively prefer collection though.

Check out Ampstack on Facebook. In a guitar head shape, but 4 channels with their own volume controls, master eq and volume. Works great for guitar, need a lot of boost in front to get much breakup from the pre, but the clean is great, and the reverb is nice. 100w so decent for bass with a suitable cab. Recapped and sorted, good to go, currently missing back panel, subject to update. Obviously this is a heavy lump, but I can have it couriered, would massively prefer collection though.

Bugera G20 Infinium tube valve amp, servo bias, Class A, modern and vintage sounds

Bugera G20 Infinium tube valve amp, servo bias, Class A, modern and vintage sounds

Contrary to what ignorant people on the internet say, this amp is NOT a clone of the Blackstar Ht20. The latter is a cathode bias amp, thus it has a soft, spongy distortion. But if you play rock, hard rock, hard edged blues and you want a type of sound like Marshall, Orange, Hiwatt, etc, you need a FIXED bias amp, which the G20 is (I have asked a Bugera tech). This bias style will give the exciting, powerful, brutal type of power amp distortion like the amps mentioned above, not the soft and spongy type. Another point about why the Blackstar HT 20 and the G20 could not be more different amps, is that the Blackstar HT has a clean power amp of the clinical type. The Bugera G20 has a ton and a half of power amp distortion when you crank it to max. Lastly, the Blackstar does not feature servo bias (Infinium). You will not find another budget priced amp with servo bias, for you see this type of high tech on a tube amp, only on some amps by Hughes & Kettner, which cost 3 times or more than the Bugera. The servo bias is basically an amp tech into the amp… With FIXED bias amps such as the Bugera, you would have to reset the bias correctly every time you change the tubes. Not only that, you dont even need matched tubes (which costs more than unmatched), for the Infinium will take care of all that. AND, it continually balances the load on the power tubes, which means that if one is more worn than the other, the other one will take some of the load off the worn tube. That means that a set of tubes will last significantly longer, probably several years at least. And preamp tubes usually last forever anyways. So, the only thing in common between the Blackstar HT20 and the Bugera G20 is the COLOUR : Wow. How does the G20 sounds? It will cover ANY main tones as used in pop, blues, jazz, hard rock, and more. Crank it up to full and you will be greeted with impressive power amp distortion. As said, the Blackstar HT series has a clean power amp. One Blackstar I have that HAS a lot of power amp distortion, is the Series One, not the HT Series. I have two of these Bugera amps and bought one as backup but I dont really need it. The build quality is also very good: check out some of the metal film resistors in the pics, as well as ceramic tube sockets (not plastic) and an handle in real leather. In short: if you want a REAL tube amp (not these worthless digital and VST surrogate things), that has servo bias, that costs the same as an indifferent sounding solid state amp, in a portable package, this one certainly fits the bill. Keep in mind that this amp sounds a LOT louder than ANY 20 watts solid state or digital amps. And if you boost the FX loop, it will probably put out close to 40 watts anyways. The amp will be packed properly and will be sent with tracked and insured courier. 20-Watt Class-A Tube Amplifier Head with INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier, MORPH EQ and Reverb. The timeless design and sound of the all-tube amp has made its indelible mark on countless beloved tracks spanning the history of the electric guitar. With the ultimate pursuit of those wonderfully saturated, vintage and modern tones in mind, we proudly present the G20 INFINIUM. Sporting a gorgeous modern look and feel, the G20 serves up 20 beautiful, tube-soaked, Class-A Watts in vintage, as well as modern flavors. With two preamp tube stages for Clean and two dedicated tube stages for Overdrive, the G20 covers vast sonic territories with remarkable ease. Additionally, the G20 INFINIUM features an integrated high-definition Reverb and our extremely versatile MORPH EQ for seamlessly sweeping between vintage U. Enhancing the versatility of this do-it-all head, our revolutionary INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology makes tube replacement incredibly simple so you can spend more time playing your music. The G20 INFINIUM features a true Class-A amp head with a 2 x ECC83 front-end and 2 x EL34 power stage. A masterfully crafted push-pull tube amp, the G20 provides sweetly-balanced harmonics and natural tube compression resulting in the warm distortion and break-up youve come to appreciate from the vintage megaliths of yesteryear only in a much more portable and attractive package. INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology. This revolutionary circuit automatically and continuously monitors the performance of each output tube, and dynamically drives it towards the target operating point, for an evenly distributed load. INFINIUM also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting current levels to keep your tubes sounding as good as new even when AC line voltages drop below nominal levels. Similar technology has been used for decades in all-wheel drive cars, where systems modulate the power going to each wheel to improve traction. Just consider INFINIUM Series amps 4-wheel drive for your guitar. INFINIUM Series amps take all the guesswork out of tube replacement by illuminating an LED next to a tube that is reaching the end of its usable lifespan. Available exclusively from BUGERA. INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology is a major breakthrough in amplifier design and manufacture, providing incredible reliability for your stage performance and more consistent sound over the lifespan of your tubes. Since they are always operating at optimal levels, your output tubes perform more predictably and last much longer, thanks to BUGERA. To learn more about how BUGERA. S INFINIUM Technology works to keep your tone strong and sweet, please watch this video. MORPHING – Jump the Atlantic Ocean.

But sometimes you need to keep the volume down, such as when youre practicing a home late at night.

Plus, the rear-panel Line Input allows you to jam along with your favorite backing tracks. Footswitch and FX Loop Included. You have all the tools you need, right out of the box!

VINTAGE SANSUI AU-111 STEREO VALVE AMP / TUBE AMP. INCREDIBLE CONDITION / FULLY INSPECTED BY TECHNICIAN. PHOTOS DO NOT DO JUSTICE. For sale we have an insanely rare and very special Sansui AU-111 Tube Amplifier. Many have said this before…. But this is one amazing amplifier! It is without a doubt the finest amplifier I have ever heard. Anywhere, at any price. I have owned 4 of these Beauties and they never cease to put a smile on my face. This 70 pound black beauty is quite a feat of engineering. It’s impressive weight and construction is equally matched by the impressive looking line of tubes, But the really impressive work is “under the hood”. Sansui felt that a good amplifier should not be bandwidth limited to the audible range, but should extend farther in both extremes, so the amplifier can handle the audible range without any of the artifacts of limited bandwidth amplifiers; such as phase shift at the frequency extremes. This amp sounds just amazing. It produces music with an authority and an ease that is unequaled in the audio world. The amp is extremely dynamic, capable of subtle detail one moment with extreme power on the next beat. Acoustic guitar strings just leap out of the speakers. It is extremely fast, but yet it doesn’t sound too fast. Very hard to describe. The other thing about the Sansui AU-111 that strikes you immediately is that it is somehow harmonically more correct than any other amp. The piano sounds more like a piano, the banjo more like a banjo, etc… There is simply no colouration that I can hear. This takes a bit of getting used to. I can see how some would say it is dry sounding or some such. However, after you live with it a while you realize that the instruments somehow sound more realistic than you have ever heard. It doesn’t editorialize, it just plays what you feed it with great clarity and detail, no harshness, amazing dynamic range, and stunning bass control. These amplifiers are very highly sought after in the used market today and getting one is like panning for gold in a Californian mountain stream. It takes some time and effort, but the end result is a find of pure 24K gold. The AU-111 is a straightforward amplifier. It is similar to a solid-state amp by virtue of the fact that what you feed it is what you get. Theres no tube amp romanticizing; rather, it is analytical and ruthlessly revealing. Vocals are nicely defined with the instruments sharp and clear. Soundstage is both wide and deep. The AU-111 allows you to hear the fluctuations in the vocals to such a degree that it feels you are at a live concert in the comfort of your own home. The condition is fantastic for an amplifier thats over 50 years old. The faceplate is immaculate. The lettering is all present on the amplifier and there are no dents present anywhere. All inputs work as they should, all terminals accept their respective cables and all valves glow in harmony. The only issue is that the small phase switch on the rear has broke but it can still be switched if desired. The speaker terminals have also been upgraded as the old ones are terrible and always fail to hold the speaker cable in place. This unit is Multivoltage and currently set to 240v. Really, you have to hear one of these. Even if you don’t keep it, just the chance to live with it for a while is an experience not to be missed for anyone who is into this crazy hobby. Please note that I have included high resolution photos and it appears there are blemishes on the unit. This is infact dust. I can confirm the unit is in pretty much 10/10 condition as is the faceplate. Usually the faceplate anodizes on these and turns a copper colour but this is still a nice rich black. She is literally ready to plug, play and enjoy. Power output: 40 watts per channel into 8 (stereo). Frequency response: 20Hz to 50kHz. Total harmonic distortion: 0.8%. Input sensitivity: 220mV (line). Signal to noise ratio: 70dB (MM), 80dB (line). Channel separation: 45dB (MM), 50dB (line). Output: 2.1V (Pre out). Speaker load impedance: 8 to 16.
