Beard P100 Mkii Valve Amplifier
« on: July 17, 2019, 06:22:19 PM »
Condition: 7/10 - Great for its age
Location Bloem
Shipping: Can perhaps deliver in Jhb
Weighs around 40 kgs, so no shipping
Price R12000 ( see ad)

Probably one of the best valve power amps build.
I traded the amp for one of my Theta Dreadnought amps worth R16k .
It sounded fantastic on my Summits , but it did not like the 0.7 ohm the speakers dip to as it is a  8 ohm amp.
New KT 88 s with around 60 hours on them.
It sounded a bit distorted on very high levels..

I would recommend this amp to anyone who is looking for stunning valve power with a less sensitive speaker .

I am thinking Spendor, Tannoy etc

Just a note, this amp is huge..

These amps are extremely sought after in the UK and Eastern markets, but I thought i would run it on the forum first..

If anybody is keen chat to me

Hi Guys

I am moving house soon and I do not want to put this in storage..

I will drop the price to R9000.

This is a huge loss for me , but a chance for someone to grab an incredible piece of vintage gear..

Maybe spend a bit of money on recapping etc and you will have one of the best valve power amps for very little money..

These are currently selling for 850 BP and $1000 on the Shark... I know this is SA , but still ..
Thanks jj

Dammit!! Now this is one of those 'Fantastic buys that slipped through your fingers' moments. Man, if I had the money, if I could BORROW or LOAN the money, I would take this from you. :walled: GLWS!
