Reg. Price: $15,000

Here’s a super-clean ARC REF 150SE vacuum tube power amp, a used one-owner model that we originally sold and have taken in on trade towards the new REF 160S.  This amp is an original ‘SE’, not one that has been updated.  It’s just back from the factory for a full check-out and new tube set.  Zero hours on the tubes.  Original box and packing. This is a wonderful amp that can get the most performance out of pretty much any speaker. Magical with Magnepans and Wilsons.

Nordost’s Quantum QB8 power distribution strip takes nothing away from the music, unlike the vast majority of products in this category.  This is our demo QB8 and the original MK I version.  15A power cord required- we have some good opportunities on demo and used power cords, please inquire.


NAD M15HD AV preamp processor

Reg. Price: $4499
Sale Price: $900

NAD’s Master Series M15HD AV preamp processor has plenty of inputs for even a complex AV system, and sounds terrific.  (It’s also very good sounding as just a stereo preamp.) The M15HD existed prior to current 4K HDMI standards, but it features their MDC Modular Design Construction so you can upgrade modules as your system warrants it to stay up to date with current formats.  Includes remote and manual but no box, packing or 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.
