AVA AvaStar SL Hybrid Vacuum Tube Preamplifier $795 Sold
Our Best hybrid preamp when it was built in 2010. Trade up from original owner.
Complete with MM RIAA phono circuits and remote control.

Phono plus 5 sets of line level inputs, dual tape monitors, dual line outputs, and precision volume and balance controls. Drives any kind of amplifier load and long cables easily due to its low output impedance and amazing high current output stage. Pure tube sound with solid state flexibility.
The AvaStar went out of production simply because it was too expensive for us to build and sell back then.

MOS-FET 240D solid state amplifier in Dyna ST-150 chassis with custom black faceplate. $495
An older AVA 120W/Ch amplifier in very nice mechanical, cosmetic, and electrical condition. We built these amplifiers to work well essentially forever and this one still sounds great in my reference system. Trade in from original owner for newest AVA equipment.

AVA Ultra II EC Hybrid Vacuum Tube Preamplifier $795
Our most recent production full function hybrid preamp with switchable tone controls and more. July, 2011 production. Trade up toward new AVA equipment by the original owner.
This full function preamp has remote control, eight sets of inputs, plus two sets of tape inputs and outputs and dual audio outputs along with a lovely sounding built in headphone amplifier. The sound is great, tube like but with more control and extended range due to our multiple regulated power supplies.
The Faceplate functions are Source/Tape and Tape 1/Tape 2 switches, EPL and Low Gain switches, Left and Right Mono switches, Filter and Tone Control defeat switches, along with 8 position selector switch and precision volume and balance controls, and power switch. All switches and jacks are gold plated for long trouble free service life.
The EPL function provides an additional set of inputs and outputs to install an equalizer, or any other signal processor and allow them to be switched out of circuit.
Uniqe to this particular unit are XLR balanced line inputs replacing the normal Spare 1 inputs to allow connection to a DAC that has XLR outputs only.
This preamp has had loving care and looks nearly new. It does have a captive power cord.
Thirty day no risk satisfaction guarantee and one year AVA parts and labor warranty.

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.
