AM are in the process of releasing new models of the below 3 models. My understanding is that the designs are mainly cosmetic, but are radically different to the current range, and personally I prefer the appearance now and do not really like what I have seen so far, but it appears that they are changing so that the range no longer resembles other brand which cost astronomically more, but have proven to be not as sonically stunning as the AM. Regardless of my personal preferences, I need to be able to demonstrate what I can provide so reluctantly I am offering my demo stock for sale at prices not seen anywhere before. Since my normal pricing is a fraction of the world price I will list the recommended retail and cost elsewhere and the price of these units.
Apparently there are some changes in the components and power supplies. Naturally I have not heard them.
It is very likely that no other amplifiers outperform the AM models. Customers have given me feedback of just how much better they found their AM's over famous amplifiers costing 10 times as much. My comparisons with equipment rated as the best in the world by The Absolute Sound, Stereophile, Enjoy the Music.com, Audio and Soundstage revealed a gulf between them and the AM. Both in power amplifiers and pre amps. My last comparison resulting in an easy sale of an RT-3 pre and a pair of 833S was against a very well known brand's $150,000 monoblocs and the difference was astonishing. The customer first compared his amps against the AM 833M and his comment was "My God, what are the big ones like?" Bringing the big ones a couple of days later resulted in them staying.
Since I got all three of these amplifiers just before the lockdown started, they have done very little work. The 833S have done about 30 hours, as I only listened to them when I felt like an experience, and since I was so busy during the lockdowns, that wasn't often. I actually sold 6 pairs of Grand Monuments during that time, one with an RT-3 and 833S. The proud owner told me he just couldn't stop crying when he listed to them.
I do not have pricing on the new models, but have been warned that it will increase.
This is a once off, very unlikely to be ever repeated special offer on these incredible products. One pair only of each model.
#1: AM 833S (Silver)
This is an ultimate, nothing spared or sacrificed design. Standing nearly 50cm high and weighing 75.4kG each. The construction quality is incredible. The sound quality sets a new standard. Using the amazing 833 valve in Pure Class A, Single Ended configuration, they put out an impressive 130 w/Ch.
This is easily the best amplifier I have ever heard.
All pure square section, 24 ct gold plated wiring used in all the signal path and umbilical. Only run about 20 hours max, with playing time about half that. Perspex tube protectors never unpacked and protective plastic still on transformers. New two year warranty applies.
World price is $55,800 per pair.
This pair only is $19,900
This is a smaller, more manageable version of the absolutely stunning 4 box 833S, but with less massive power supply in a very little spared or sacrificed design. Standing a more easily placed 28cm high and weighing 50kg each. The construction quality is incredible. The sound quality sets a towering new standard in this or in any price level. Using the amazing 833 valve in Pure Class A, single ended configuration, they put out an impressive 120 w/Ch. of the most articulate, authoritative and musical sound imaginable, with a stunningly quiet background.
Only run about 10 hours max, with playing time about half that. New two year warranty applies.
World price is $34,200 per pair.
This pair only is $13,950
#2: AM 833M (Silver)
#3: AM 805M (Silver)
The AM 805M is a Single ended design using a very high quality 805 output tube for 50 watts per channel. They are very well made and weigh 28Kg each. They have a very natural, musical sound, with an astonishing bass extension and power for a SE design.
The sonics of these amplifiers really needs to be seen to be believed and comparing them to other amplifiers, even at several times the price is embarrassing.
Only run about 7 hours max, with playing time about half that. New two year warranty applies.
World price is$16,200 per pair.
This pair only is $8,250
#4: Consonance Die Walküre Turntable
with Sumiko Pearl High Output MM Cartridge
A quite exceptional turntable in as new condition. My mother bought it to celebrate her 103rd birthday and she loved it. Sadly as she approaches her 104th birthday she fell and broke her hip, so has had to go into care and leave her super stereo system. It was infrequently played and very carefully. New warranty of two years applies. Fitted with the exceptional Consonance T8 arm, this turntable has easily outperformed $20,000 turntables in the past. I carefully chose the Sumiko for its exceptional performance at a reasonable price.
Usually $3,990 with arm but without carriage, This one $3,200 with carriage.
