This is one of the great buys in tube amplification. Much improved over the original VT100, the MKIII version is simply more transparent sounding, more dynamic, quieter and a power delivery that seems to be more than their rated 100W. At its original $6000 MSRP, it was an audiophile bargain and won many positive reviews from reviewers worldwide. This amp was recently checked by an authorized service center in NYC. New tubes (more than $600 value – 8x Svetlana 6550c and 2x Sovtek 6H30Pi) were installed and biased to factory specs with old resistors replaced and a small bad section of the tracing on the PCB board redone. The servicing alone was more than $800. Amp works like new now and good for many more years to come!
Some scuff marks here and there but nothing major. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack this for safe shipping.
