Restored Vintage SS Amps for Sale?
Roxy54: I have searched both at length. Also, I've had too many bad incidents already with the wild west known as Audiomart to really trust anyone there. I'd rather go straight to a reputable individual as confirmed by other audiophiles even if it... 
Heed Obelisk Integrated?

SS Budget "Tone" Integrated Amplifiers

Need help Cary CD-308 or Naim CD5i
