Reaping the Benefits!
With Autumn’s arrival, the weather chills, home fires burn brighter, and music becomes again a vital contributor to the warmth of our spirits. Fall is also the time to bring in the harvest and reward ourselves with the benefits of all the prior months’ labours.
In the previous blog, I described the Allnic products introduced since January, the new fruits of KS Park’s ingenuity and brilliant audio-engineering.
But besides this fresh “crop” of unparalleled, excellent audio gear, there are other ways to reap the benefits of Allnic’s, and our own, work.
If you’re interested in acquiring a piece of Allnic electronics at a great price, or an excellent device by another manufacturer, now is a great time to take advantage of the trade-in and demo products we have available. Please note that all Allnic products come with full factory warranty!
To start, though, I’d like to highlight the special pricing available on brand new units of the upgraded, final, “Special Edition” of a current product... The A-2000 25th Anniversary SE stereo power amplifier was introduced early in 2022 and came about because of now retired Allnic North American distributor Hammertone Audio working a special deal with Allnic for the last fifteen chassis of the award-winning A-2000 25th Anniversary.
The A-2000 25th Anniversary was a powerhouse and a paragon of stable, resolute power with clarity and finesse. With the modifications, the SE version sounds even better, and for the price, we think nothing will be able to touch it. It’s a great way to end the A-2000 25th Anniversary’s production run, and a great opportunity, limited by number of course, for anyone wanting a brand new Allnic power amp, one that can drive virtually any speaker, “for a song”, so to speak. A few units remain in stock for rapid delivery!
The KT150 based A-2000 25th Anniversary SE is pentode/triode switchable “on-the-fly”, providing 100 watts/channel in pentode mode and more than 50 watts in SET sounding triode, and is available in silver or black at the truly exceptional price of $5900! That’s a fantastic savings over the original version - especially in the current economic climate.
Review and award for the standard A-2000 25th Anniversary – July 2021!
Part-Time Audiophile named the A-2000 an Editor’s Choice!
It’s rare for me to review a product like this which is just so thoroughly sorted, and at what I find to be a very fair price…
If you’re in the market for an amp that does what the modern 100W per channel solid-state stereo amplifier purported to do; power anything big or small, do so quietly and with great character and flat frequency response, I’m here to tell you that you can do one better, and even get those magical glowing vacuum-sealed bottles while you’re at it. If you have an opportunity to lay ears on this amp—don’t miss it.
On to the trades and demos!
First up, an example of another manufacturer’s product: as part of the purchase of an A-2000 25th Anniversary SE, a customer recently traded in a pair of AUDIO ALCHEMY DPA-1M Class D amps, Stereophile’s review here:
These are new pieces and absolutely clean.
⦁ 325 WPC into 8Ω, 400 WPC into 4Ω
⦁ Class A discrete FET input stage
⦁ Cool-running Class D output stage
⦁ XLR and RCA inputs
⦁ Switchable gain and mute
Retail was $4000 - we’re asking $2850 or BEST OFFER.
Now a few of the great Allnic deals:
T-2000 25th Anniversary, demo, black
We have a special price on a demo, black T-2000 25th Anniversary integrated amplifier. The left post for the front right KT150 tube silo had to be re-tapped and replaced; a trial auditioner over-torqued the post and snapped it off. Although the post now has a solid placement, I do not recommend removing and replacing it.
Otherwise, this is an almost new unit – new retail is $10,900 - Offered here at only $5800! Call or email me for more information.
Offered here is a beautiful demo pair of the 300B version of the M-2500 monoblocks, in silver. These are in like-new condition with few hours on the tubes and offer 30 watts/channel of push-pull power retaining the musicality of the 300B tubes. Read Audiophilia’s glowing review here:
The M-2500 monoblocks retail for $19,500. Asking price for this like-new, silver demo pair is only $12,000!
Less is so much more! A black, brand-new, in-the-box, output transformer-less/output capacitor-less L-9000 Preamp is on offer – this is close-out pricing for this amazing product. Read the Soundstage-Ultra review to find out why this preamp is special:
The L-9000 OTL/OCL preamp offers unbelievably realistic, holographic sound-staging combined with incredible resolution, clarity, micro-dynamics, and drive. Instrument and vocal tones and timbres are breathtakingly lifelike, and the placement of instruments and bodies in three dimensions startling, life-size, and addictive. The L-9000 OTL/OCL has no voice of its own, none. In addition, the stunningly realistic sonic quality is matched by the simple elegance, flexibility and ergonomic functionality of the L-9000’s casework and connection options.
The L-9000 sits between the L-10000, Allnic Audio’s top OTL/OCL line-stage preamplifier, and the L-8500 OTL/OCL line-stage preamplifier.
Retailing at $18,000 – you can have this brand-new, black
L-9000 OTL/OCL for $12,000!
We have a beautiful demo L-6500 preamp available at a significantly reduced price for an essentially brand-new unit.
With the exceptional sound quality we expect from Allnic, the L-6500 features 20dB gain, Allnic’s famous in-house designed and built permalloy output transformers – ensuring a constant low output impedance (ensuring it will work with almost all amplifiers), multiple balanced and single-ended inputs and outputs, NOS tubes, separate current meters for each channel and remote control. All this is in the new rugged chassis design that reduces vibration and matches the H-6500 and H-5500 phono stages. The new “baby” of the Allnic preamps definitely shares many of the outstanding features of its siblings. Read the recent HiFi+ review to get a handle on this product (no longer available for the introductory price) Allnic L-6500 Preamplifier HIFI+ Review May 2022
It may just make you want to really get your hands on this special offering.
The L-6500 retails for $9000 – this like-new demo can be yours for $6500!
H-7000 Phono-stage Preamplifier - An Opportunity to own
Allnic's Legacy Product!
In on trade is a silver H-7000 Phono-stage Preamp in excellent condition. The H-7000 is stunningly beautiful, with a beefy CNC milled aluminum main chassis and weighing in at 45 pounds.
The H-7000 features large power and permalloy nickel signal path transformers, multiple inputs (2 MM and 2 MC), NOS Mullard E810F gain tubes, and a separate power supply robust enough to satisfy all tube rollers’ frenzied shootouts and Saturday night trials. Since the H-7000 became available, it’s had excellent feedback on vintage rectifiers tried and liked, such as the RCA 5U4G, GEC U52, and the Mullard family of CV378 (both bottle shapes), CV37, and 5AR4. A big all-time favourite is the WE422A.
And it’s another award winner!
Please take a look at the reviews:
The H-7000 retails for $16,500. This excellent condition, silver trade-in is available for $11,500 – or best offer!
H-5500 Phono-stage Preamplifier
Here we have a brand-new H-5500 Phono-stage preamplifier in black available. The only issue is that the box is damaged! For this tear in the packaging, we’re reducing the price from the retail of $5700 - to $4800!
