Original factory wired Dyna Pat-4 solid state preamplifier $99 SOLD


This was a "donation" to us and it is so old I just let it sit until today.  I bench tested it just for fun. Surprise, it still works just fine!

I cleaned the controls and switches with Deoxit D5 and now everything functions normally.  It is quiet and makes original specifications. A copy of the original owners manual is available too if you need it.

No warranty or satisfaction guarantee, but its still a great value in a startup system. Even includes tone controls, headphone amplifier, and phono circuits.


AVA Super Pas Three Vacuum Tube Preamplifier $495 SOLD


This is a great example of our highly regarded PAS rebuild.

It has all available options including an AVA custom silver face plate and knob set, AVA gold plated input and output jack set, precision volume and balance controls, AVA line and phono output buffer circuits, and a new set of JJ ECC83S/12AX7 tubes.

In perfect working order and in very good cosmetic condition. One year parts and labor warranty as well as 30 day satisfaction guarantee apply.



We just receive an old but still great sounding set of premium grade AVA components from a long time client who is downsizing. They are all in great working order and in excellent cosmetic condition.  All have been played in our reference system and the sound is really surprisingly good considering they are 1983 vintage. 

Transcendence Pat-5 Preamplifier $595

This is a complete discrete transistor full function preamp built into a silver face plate Dyna Pat-5 chassis.  It has an excellent phono section, switchable tone controls, tape monitoring, switchable external processor loop, and more. The wiring is extraordinarily well done.  All possible connections are done with shielded cables. It would be too expensive to build these days, but it should work great for many more years. One year parts and labor warranty as well as 30 day satisfaction guarantee.



Transcendence 400 Power Amplifier $895

This one is really special with a custom silver face plate and all discrete solid state AVA internal circuits, including an awesome huge shielded power supply with 8 separate paralleled PC mount power supply caps to provide a ripple free and very low power supply output impedance. Full complimentary power Mos-Fet output circuit. 200 watts per channel and lovely sounding. Quiet running cooling fan. Built in a new, at that time, Dyna 400 chassis, but you would never know that now. The best sounding amp available then and still just fine. One year parts and labor warranty as well as 30 day satisfaction guarantee.




AVA Super Tuner Two built in a Dyna FM-5 Chassis $295

This was the best FM tuner we ever built. The only internal Dyna parts are the sealed front end assembly and power transformer. All internal circuit boards and designs are AVA originals. It sounds like a high quality CD is playing on our local PBS classical station. The tuner's silver face plate matches the Transcendence Pat-5 above. Unfortunately there are no remaining repair parts available for this wonderful tuner, so it must be sold "as is" with no warranty.



Used Phillips FT-920 AM-FM tuner with AVA audio circuits $395

This is a very special sounding tuner because it has a complete AVA audio and associated power supply board added to this very functional tuner.

It has 30 presets (FM or AM), great sensitivity, nice digital display, a copy of the owners manual, and with AVA audio circuits replacing the original audio drivers, it has great sound too!

From the original owner who is parting with it only because of downsizing and space limitations. 

One year parts and labor warranty as well as 30 day satisfaction guarantee apply.


2010 vintage AVA Vision Preamp/DAC $895


This is a very nice example of our solid state Vision preamplifier and DAC circuits packaged in one useful chassis. The DAC is good for up to and including 192/24 bit rate data and the preamp has all the functions of our AVA chassis at that time of production, including a captive power cord. Gold plated jacks and switches, precision volume and balance controls, 5 sets of line inputs plus coax digital DAC input, dual tape inputs and outputs, two sets of line outputs, and a great build in headphone amplifier.

One year parts and labor warranty as well as 30 day satisfaction guarantee apply.


Fully Optioned Vision Preamp/DAC in brand new condition $1995


This unit was built for a reviewer to evaluate and contains every option available. It has our premium silver face plate, remote control, adjustable Vision phono circuits for MM and MC cartridges, and our latest all discrete Class A audio and DAC filter circuits. The new price was nearly $3000 so you are saving $1000 on this amazing offering.

It will do everything you need in one compact chassis. Great phono section, DAC that is good to all bit rates up to and including 192/24, stunning built in headphone circuits, and outstanding musicality with all sources.

New three year parts and labor warranty as well as 30 day satisfaction guarantee.


Used Fet Valve 400R Hybrid Power Amplifier $2195 SOLD

This great amp is in new condition and is a trade up to a pair of our new DVA 850 mono blocks.

It is the 225W/Ch variation of our highly regarded Fet Valve hybrid amplifiers and is in perfect condition. It was built in February 2014 and is a current production model.

Is is so nice we will provide a new three year parts and labor warranty as well as our 30 day satisfaction guarantee.

New Synergy 450 Amplifier Used as Axpona Show Demo (10% discount) $1800 SOLD

We are offering this great 225W/Ch amplifier with our new machined feet and new cover design.  We only used this amplifier at the Axpona show in April 2016.

Of course this unit has a new 3 year parts and labor warranty as well as our 30 day satisfaction guarantee.

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.
