Van Alstine 600R FET Valve Power Amplifier Mint [Expired]

no longer for sale

Item Description

Sale pending

Up for sale is an effectively new Van Alstine 600R FET Valve power amplifier. The amplifier was purchased new in March 2013 by a friend of mine whom I am selling it for. The amplifier won The Absolute Sound Editors’ Choice Award for “Mid-Priced Power Amplifiers” $3000 - $6000, 2013. It is in excellent cosmetic and operating condition and comes with original box, packing materials, user manual and copy of receipt. It is a hybrid design that offers a very expansive soundstage, tube like sound quality, and better many other power amplifiers we compared it to. The only reason for the sale is my friend has upgraded to the FM Acoustic power amplifier at ten times the price. You won’t find another one in this condition.

I will accept Paypal but please add the 3 percent fee to the sale price. Shipping is a flat $45 to the lower 48 states. All others please contact me for an exact shipping quote.

I will ship quickly after payment has been received.

Thanks for looking.


Presenting the new AVA FET Valve R series amplifiers 600R, 300 watts per channel. This amplifier offers absolutely unique engineering accomplishments; active analog regulated power supplies for each section of each channel. There are active 12V heater supplies for each tube, active 275V and 200V regulators for each plate of each tube and for the mos-fet drivers, and finally (and an audio engineering first we believe) active analog regulated power supplies for each power mos-fet output circuit, ten high speed analog high current regulated power supplies in all. No switching supplies or associated RFI noise at all.

You have never heard before, at any price, the astonishing musical quality and control our engineering has now achieved. We offer simply astonishing bass range, control, and dynamics, open, layered, and emotional mid-range, and a top end that never stops, with any trace of glare, grain, or grit. Your speakers and your ears will never be happier.

The amp uses two ECC81/12AT7 tubes.

All new AVA products now include IEC power sockets and a ground lift switch to eliminate ground loop hum in complex systems.
