ORIGINAL PROJECT EMBER R1.0 WITH SUPERCHARGER INSTALLED

DISCLAIMER

The black box Asus DAC/AMP is NOT for sale. Only the Project Ember on the top of it, is for sale! The single tube hybrid amplifier!


Don't worry! The reason for sale is that I bought a second Ember (reason below) and I only need one. :)

As far as sound quality is concerned, Ember 1.0 with SC and Ember 2.1 sound absolutely identical according to their designers. Minor changes have been made from time to time, but none that affect sound quality even one bit!

UPDATE

Canceled the previous Ebay auction. Launched a new Ebay auction. This time USD 255 worth of tubes and accessories are bundled for free, instead of USD 125 :)

Here you go:

Closest Competitors
Schiit Lyr 2
Bottlehead Crack
Woo Audio WA 7 (however Ember doesn't have a DAC just a headphone amp)

Cost of Brand New
$365 + $50 shipping + Approx INR 9000 in custom duty, so approx INR 40k or so!

CONDITION

Repaired locally. The Supercharger came out in an accident. Has been repaired and is perfectly fine now. However, there were partial cosmetic mods during the repair. None that should affect the SQ though. :)

WARRANTY (Message from Garage1217 / Jeremy Helms)

I have no problem with warranty but due to the damage, scraped traces and such, any future failure related to the tubes heater power supply would not be covered.

DATE OF PURCHASE (5 yrs transferable warranty starting from DOP)

18th August 2013 by Garage1217 (originally built by Jeremy), SC installation and later repair were done locally in India.

TERMS OF SALE

I will check the amp before I ship it to you. Properly. No refunds. No returns. I will try to buy insurance for you if Speed Post permits. I will mark whatever value you want me to mark it, that is up to you.

FREE BUNDLED ACCESSORIES (I'm adding them in from my side)

Does NOT come with 6SN7 adapter. You need to buy that yourself from Garage1217.com. I only have a single 6SN7 adapter so I can't give that to you. Since the SC is installed, you only need a 6SN7 adapter to use those tubes. The new Ember 2.1 that Jeremy sells for $365 + shipping doesn't come with the adapter either. That costs extra. However, I am including a LOT of free tubes and accessories for you :)

TubeMonger 9-pin socket saver worth USD 25 + shipping (free for you)

Shuguang (New production) - 2 tubes VALUE USD 20

One more tube, perhaps Telefunken, not sure, I don't guarantee it. And I don't know whether this particular tube is dead or working. Not sure. - 1 tube VALUE USD 10

9-pin 12AT7 Tubes

RCA Canada Black Plates 12AT7 1950s, semi-defective/defective, may not work at all, and/or properly, new cost USD 50-150+ per pair, I will include 2 single pieces for you for free,

Philips Jan(?) 6DJ8 VALUE USD 25-50

8-pin 6SN7 Tubes

Raytheon 6SN7GTB USD 40

For the 6SN7 tubes you will need to buy a 6SN7 adapter from Jeremy / Garage1217.

Total value of accessories USD 255+! In a way you're getting Project Ember for free!! :D

That is like getting a 37k amp plus another 18k in accessories (total value 55k) for just 16k :D


PAYMENT

INR 16k including all of the above, including worldwide economy shipping. I can list it on Ebay if you want. However, due to Ebay fees, I will then charge you INR 19k shipped worldwide, all inclusive.

Do remember, I will check the amp properly before I ship it to you. And I will pack it well. I will even send many pics. And I will TRY to take insurance if possible.

No refunds no returns.

Thanks!
