Monitor Audio Gold 100 (Dark Walnut) Used

 

Approximately 6 months old, in beautiful condition. Residue of 5 year warranty remaining. Monitor Audio Gold 100 are a high performance bookshelf speaker. Complete with packaging, magnetic grills, and accessories. So well realised is the Gold 100, it’s the only stand mounting speaker of the series. The combination of 6½” (165 mm) C-CAM mid/bass driver, MPD high-frequency transducer and rear-facing HiVe II port in a compact, elegant cabinet makes this two-way loudspeaker sound far bigger than it is – it’s composed, adaptable and capable of greater bass presence than seems feasible.

Above all, it’s an accurate and informative listen, able to bring the best from its partnering electronics and the music you’re listening to. Small, in this instance, is remarkably beautiful.

Accuphase E-370 Integrated Amplifier (Used)

Available within the next few weeks. A very well cared for E-370, one owner, the Accuphase sales representative. 1 year warranty.

 

Inheriting outstanding technology from the top-of-the-line E-600 and the high-power version E-470, the E-370 represents a full model change from the E-360.
At the heart of the preamplifier section is the same version of the AAVA volume control as found in the E-600, pushing the noise floor to an absolute minimum. The power amplifier block employs the latest instrumentation amplifier topology, enabling fully balanced signal transmission in all stages. This reliably shuts out external noise interference and ensures perfectly stable operation. As a result, overall S/N ratio has been improved by 3 dB.
Other impressive features include MOS-FET switches in place of relays for speaker protection, helping to ensure superb electrical characteristics and improve long-term reliability. The circuit topology of the output stage is designed for extremely low impedance, resulting in a damping factor of over 400, demonstrating excellent speaker drive capability.

  • Revolutionary AAVA volume control
  • Output stage with high power transistors in parallel push-pull configuration produces quality power:  100 watts x 2 into 8 ohms
  • Instrumentation amplifier principle for power amplifier block allows fully balanced signal transmission
  • Logic-control relays for shortest signal paths
  • Strong power supply with massive high-efficiency transformer and large filtering capacitors
  • POWER IN button allows separate use of preamplifier and power amplifier sections
  • Numeric indication of volume level

Accuphase C-37 Phono Preamp (used)

The C-37 is the predecessor to the new C-47 phono stage. The C-37 is a no-compromise standalone phono equalizer amplifier incorporating latest circuit design and utilizing materials and parts with optimal sonic qualities, making it capable of exploring the possibilities of the analog disc to the fullest. The phono amplifier must accurately handle the minute signal while keeping distortion and noise to an absolute minimum. In the C-37, these goals are achieved by employing completely separate MC head amplifier and equalizer sections, and keeping the left and right channels also separate. This enables the C-37 to fully bring out the characteristics and sonic qualities of any phono cartridge, allowing the listener to explore the legendary musical depth of analog discs. Dual mono construction with left/right separate MC head amplifier and equalizer sections

  • Highly precise equalization: RIAA deviation only ±0.3dB
  • Versatile load impedance switching options with 6 settings for MC and 3 settings for MM
  • Gain switching enables high gain of up to 70dB
  • Three inputs for analog players or tone arms, each with a separate memory for MC/MM, load impedance, gain, subsonic filter and other settings
  • Two sets of analog outputs for balanced and Line connections
  • Phase selector for balanced outputs
