    Default FS: Audio Experience Symphonies Tube Line Stage

    AE Symphonies Tube Line Stage

    3 x 12AX7, one for line in, one for line amp, one for line out
    1 x 6X4, not exactly sure what it is used for, this preamp features a bulletproof solid-state rectification stage. The 6X4 appears to 'massage' the power supply to the AX's, or buffer the power in some fashion.

    All point to point wiring on the drive stage, ALPS volume pot, balance, and selector (4 sources), IEC plug on rear. 4 inputs, 3 outputs (1 fixed - 2 variable). Brushed Aluminum facia, no 'gold' trim on this one.

    Missing some top screws (as it came it to me), but I have some extras around here, and will include 4 (enough to hold the top panel on).

    Great sounding and suprisingly well built line amplifier, black background, good speed and attack, on the 'live' side of neutral.

    SOLD with Electro Harmonix 12AX7 and a JAN (GE) 6X4

    Add 3 used Telefunken Ribbed Plate AX7's and a Tungsol 6X4 + $30

    Actual pictures later, camera batteries are charging.

    Bliss needs to jump on this for those Wave 8s you sold him.

    Someone else was looking for a tubed pre.....hmmm, it'll come to me soon.

    Hmm. I'm not real sure. I want to say I'm looking for something a lil' nicer, but I can't say for sure. Regardless, I can't jump on another piece this soon; I'll hafta spread it out a bit, unfortunately.

    I must say, thought, that comment about 'on the lively side of neutral' sounds like it'd suit my tastes well.

    Sale Pending.

    Jim, with the features / build, it's a no brainer at twice the asking price.

    Cheers,

    Russ states in the first post that it has a solid-state rectifier. What'm I missing?

    A 6X4 is a full-wave rectifier, it's just not being used as such in this application.
