AVA Super Pas Three Vacuum tube preamp, excellent condition $445 SOLD
This one is the all vacuum tube Super Pas Three built in a Dyna Pas-3 chassis. A very special preamplifier.
Built into an original Dynamo Pas-3 chassis, it is in excellent condition and was built with all of our best options: A custom black AVA faceplate and knob set, the AVA back panel gold plated jack set, our ceramic selector switch, and precision volume and balance controls, with all new AVA internal circuits including RIAA phono circuits. Finally it has our line and output current buffer circuits added after the tube circuits. These allow the tubes to drive low impedance loads and run at about 10dB lower distortion as they are not loaded down by external circuits. It is quiet and very musical.
The Super Pas Three uses 12AX7 tubes and one 12X4 rectifier tube. It has four new JJ 12AX7/ECC83S matched tubes. it is quiet and musical.
It has inputs for Phono, Tuner, CD two more Spare sets of inputs, tape inputs and outputs, and audio outputs.
AVA Transcendence Two discrete solid state preamplifier built into a very clean Dynaco Pat-5 chassis $345 SOLD
This unit performs like new and looks nearly new too. It is from the original owner who just is selling his equipment now.
It has all AVA circuits installed including RIAA phono, phase inverters, line and tone controls, and power supply. It also has our precision stepped volume and balance controls.
This is a very full function preamp with switchable tone controls, excellent phono section, switchable External Processor Loop, low filter, tape to tape monitoring, dual tape input and outputs, dual audio outputs, headphones driven by the attached power amplifier and speaker switcher capability.
The original silver Dyna faceplate and knob set are in nearly new condition.
In my system I am pretty surprised at how nice it sounds. Very detailed and dynamic with no rough edges. This is a circuit set we discontinued just because it was too expensive to build, using select matched pair transistors throughout.
AVA Mos-Fet 120D power amplifier built into an excellent Dyna ST-120 Chassis $295 SOLD
This is a lovely sounding 70W/Ch basic power mos-fet amplifier we but into a Dyna ST-120 chassis. All AVA original circuits replacing everything inside the amplifier except the power transformer. It is very rugged with way overbuilt output circuits. It is very tube like sounding, smooth, engaging, and musical. You won't find a nicer sounding amplifier at anywhere near this price. Selling at the request of the original owner who is retiring to a living space that does not allow him to continue to use a component audio system.
AVA Mos-Fet 200B power amplifier built into an outstanding Hafler DH-200 chassis $395 SOLD
This amplifier is in the cleanest Hafler chassis we have seen in years. It is a 125W/Ch powerhouse with all AVA discrete solid state circuits in like new condition. Nothing Hafler inside except for the huge power transformer. It is ver quiet, dynamic, detailed, and musical. A great step up in performance for any basic audio system.
AVA Omega II 400 200W/Ch power amplifier built in an OK Dyna S-410 Chassis $495 SOLD
This musical powerhouse features all AVA circuits with most-fet outputs and thermally balanced active feedback circuits that eliminate the need for internal DC balance adjustments. A unique design, much of which is still used in current AVA production Synergy amplifiers. Great power and performance at a bargain price.

Thinking of buying used AVA equipment from another source? We can help you too.
Be very cautious when you buy used AVA equipment from an on-line auction or any other source where you cannot examine the unit firsthand. The sad truth is that some people lie. Call us first before buying our used equipment on the web or from other sources! We have excellent computer records of sales going back for years and likely we can promptly advise you of the authenticity of the product offered for sale if you will just supply us with the seller's name.
If you are contemplating the purchase of used AVA equipment from another source, we will examine, bench check, clean controls, jacks, and switches, and verify the performance of the unit for $50 ($100 for large power amplifiers) plus the cost of shipping. This inspection can be made before or after the sale, although it is obvious that you will have maximum protection if you have the unit examined before any money changes hands. We take pride in our work. One thing we don't want is AVA equipment not meeting our standards being offered as the real thing. We build very high quality and very reliable gear, and we don't want misrepresentative and abused items undermining our reputation.
Please note that the above offer is intended to be used for AVA equipment that has not been modified in any way. If you send us equipment that has been modified by someone other than AVA, special conditions may apply. Call us for details.
