Vandersteen 5A Carbon speakers, cherry

Reg. Price: $31,300
Sale Price: $21,300

Richard Vandersteen’s 5A Carbon speakers are one of the most critically acclaimed models of all time, loved for their remarkable 3D soundstage presentation, incredibly natural tonal character, and powerful bass response.  The 5A Carbons have onboard powered subwoofers with built-in parametic equalizers, allowing us during setup to create very linear bass response in most any room.  They require the use of Vandersteen’s M5-HP high pass filter, which goes in between a preamp and power amp.  This pair is our demo pair and includes full manufacturer warranty.  We will include delivery and setup in the N. Texas area at no charge; please contact us for shipping and setup options elsewhere.


Linn Keltik speakers with power amps and aktiv cards

Reg. Price: $22,155
Sale Price: $4900

Here’s a chance to enjoy a Linn Aktiv speaker setup complete with power amps and aktiv cards. Just add a preamp and source.  Keltiks were Linn’s top speaker at the time. This setup includes four pair of the Linn LK240 mono power amps- the optimal match for the speakers.  Also included are aktiv cards for the LK240 power amps, and Linn interconnect cables. We’ll also include Linn speaker cables in reasonable lengths.  You can select from a pair of Keltiks in black ash (shown) or walnut.  The black ash pair have no box and packing so local pickup only.  The walnut pair have original box and packing (as do the LK240 power amps) so this option can be shipped.  Keltiks are also available separately, please see other listing.  This is a terrific system for the price! Please ask any questions about placement, setup, compatibility etc.


Linn Akurate Kontrol preamp

Reg. Price: $5670
Sale Price: $1600

Linn’s Akurate Kontrol preamp is designed for music lovers and offers compelling performance in stereo, but can also process Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound from its digital or multi-channel audio inputs.  The digital inputs are also a fine way to upgrade the sound of stereo sources like Sonos and Bluesound streamers, etc. The Akurate Kontrol also includes an on-board MM/MC phono stage. Terrific performance and value, there’s so much to enjoy with this used Linn preamp.  Original box, packing, and remote included.


Linn Urika I phono stage for LP12 turntable

Reg. Price: $3300
Sale Price: $1200

The Urika phono stage is cleverly designed to be mounted inside the Linn LP12 turntable, dramatically shortening the signal path from tonearm to phono stage and offering terrific performance.  The Urika is compatible with the Linn range of MC cartridges and many others.  It does require a Linn Radikal power supply, not included. Note that this is the Urika 1 phono stage which has analog outputs, not the Urika 2 which only has Linn Exakt outputs. Includes original box and packing, connecting cable to Radikal, and Linn Silver RCA output cables.  Please ask any questions about compatibility, installation, etc prior to purchase.


NAD C316BEE integrated amp

Reg. Price: $379
Sale Price: $259

NAD has a reputation for creating some of the best performing affordable integrated amplifiers of all time, and the C316BEE certainly fits that description.  If you don’t need a lot of power or a lot of buttons to push, the C316 is a great solution.  It includes several inputs and a built-in headphone amp, and sounds terrific.  Our demo model on sale here takes an already high value product and makes it a steal.  Includes original box, packing, etc.


HRS S1 isolation base, 19×21

Reg. Price: $2195
Sale Price: $1495

HRS (Harmonic Resolution Systems) S1 isolation base, 19″ x 21″ in black finish, set for 70+ pound load range. The S series of isolation bases are our most popular and, we think, best value in the range.  Very nice improvement for most any audio component, our demo model has original box and packing and is in pristine condition.


NAD T567 Blu-ray / CD player

Reg. Price: $599
Sale Price: $225

NAD’s T567 Blu-ray disc player is everything you’d expect from NAD- a solid machine with good engineering and performance on both the video and audio side.  Though this player doesn’t have the latest 4k and HDR video specs, it does a fine job with the vast majority of video content which still comes on standard blu-ray discs.  Perhaps most interesting here is this NAD has more connectivity than the newest DVD players so it’ll work well with a wider range of displays, and also has far better performance when you want to play a music CD than most any other ‘universal’ player in its price range.  Though this NAD T567 is technically a demo model, we are selling it as used as it’s been with us for a couple of years.  Of course it’s spent most of that time sitting on a shelf powered off.  Terrific value if only to play CDs. Pristine shape with original box, remote, etc.

Please note: demonstrator units (except for furniture) typically include box, packaging, and manufacturer’s warranty, and are in excellent condition. Furniture is for local sale only, as it cannot be shipped. Used components are in good working condition, however boxes, packaging, and manuals may or may not be available, and there is no warranty unless the original manufacturer’s warranty is transferrable. Used pieces that are owned by AudioConcepts may be purchased with any normal form of payment, and are taxable. Pieces that are on consignment for a customer are being sold directly to you by the customer. These sales are final, cash only, and non-taxable. We’re happy to hook up any of these products prior to purchase.
