Up for sale is my highly cherished Darkvoice 336i, way too many amps kicking about the house so I am having a spring clearance.
Mods include the fitting of 220uF ELNA cathode bypass caps which allows for a wider selection of valves to be rolled in without experiencing any low level hum. I have also removed the 30uF coupling caps and replaced with 220uF Nichicon non polars bypassed with 2.2uF EVOX polypropylenes, this ensures the amp is more compatible with low impedance 'phones and the Nichicon non polars also sound a hell of a lot better too! Absolutely gorgeous with Sennheiser headphones.
Power caps have been bypassed with 1uF 400V film caps and the stock power resistors have been replaced with high quality Mills / Riedon non inductive types. All in all one superb sounding amplifier.
As well as the stock Valves that came with the amplifier I will include the following as part of the sale: 1 x Tronal 6SN7GT 1 x military grade Russian 6H8C 1 x Chinese 6SN7GT and 1 x GE6080 (all brand new / NOS) so plenty of valves to get you started on the valve rolling path Quite an expensive "bundle" of valves too.

Have had great fun with this amp for a month, but sadly it must now go to raise funds for a new camera and a 2 month backpacking trip.
Selling for the same price, with Royal mail next day special delivery.
Will throw in these 3 NOS tubes (have used them lightly) for another 10 pounds (I paid more than 30 for them) - from left to right a mullard 6080, RCA grey-plate 6AS7G, Sylvania 6AS7G. Will however have to discard the stock tubes to make space for them in the box, but it's no loss really...
£180 or £190 with the 3 tubes. Quick deal please! Paypal or bank transfer
