    Default Looking for info regarding ASUSA A-2 tube amplifier

    Anyone have any dealings, contacts or info about ASUSA or my amp in particular?
    I bought the amp to take with me when I have to go out of town, but the seller was the 2nd owner and did not have any paperwork.
    ASUSA aka Antique Sounds USA was in Kenmore WA, but does not seem to be around anymore.
    My searches in the internet have not come up with much...

    I tried calling and emailing the contact info I had found, but # is no longer theirs and the email got returned :(

    It has (4) EL84 tubes [currently JJ's] and (2) 6EA8 [currently Phillips] and a Tube rectifier5U4GB-EH (currently Electro-harmonix )
    and is supposed to put out 10w.
    Thanks
    KC

    Looking at getting a quad of NOS RCA cleartops... Local tube store has them for $20 ea.
    How would they compare to the remanuf Mullards or other EL84 tubes at a comparable price point?

    Also any decently priced options for the 6EA8's or 5U4GB's?
    thanks

    I have an old brochure. They were somehow related to a Chinese company - which, if memory serves, was called just "Antique Sounds"... they sold their product line assembled or as kits; mid to late 1990s. They had some very cool hardware; it is too bad they didn't survive.

    Lemme dig out the brochure (if I can find it); if there is any info on this particular amp; I'll post a scan.
    all the best,
