K&K and Adagio Zen

I have decided to part with my prized K&K Phono-stage. It is still sealed in its box after being checked out and repaired by Kevin Carter (power supply issue). This is a fantastic sounding unit and if I hadn't built my own phono-stage last year, I wouldn't dream of parting with it. It has all the upgrades Kevin offers and I will include a couple of extra Rocket logo tubes for the unit. It has settings for load and capacitance, MM and MC as well as high and low output. It has turn on delay, reverse polarity and I added a mono switch with the nod from Kevin as to how it is wired up. Asking $2,000 delivered. It won't break my heart if it doesn't sell.

Second up, a nice pair of Acoustic Zen Adagios. I believe they are the latest versions. Red dyed maple finish. Ribbon tweeters. in a MTM format. Lovely. One of the foot inserts probably needs re-gluing if you are going to do a lot of moving them around. Included is a set of outriggers. Front ported transmission line.
Design 2-way transmission line
Frequency Response 30 Hz to 25 kHz (+/- 3 dB)
Crossover 3rd order (Linkwitz/Riley)
Tweeter 1 5/8" round ribbon
Midrange/Woofer 2 6.5" underhung voice coil drivers
Impedance 6 Ohms nominal
Efficiency 89 dB SPL @ 1 meter
Power Handling 50 - 200 wpc RMS
Dimensions 48" H x 9" W x 13" D
1219mm H x 229mm W x 330mm D
Weight 78 lbs. (33.5 Kg) each
Lovely sound. Accurate without fatigue.
Excellent WAF!
Asking $2,500

NB Will include a Lovan Sovereign 4 tiered equipment rack to the first buyer! No shipping of the stand- too hard to box up.

Having heard both of these items numerous times, I can attest to their musicality.

Thanks Jeff. The J&K is boxed up and the Zens are packed away too. I'll see if I have any photos of them in their natural environment.

Is the K&K actually called the K&K Maxxed-Out phono stage?

Bump for another price drop to $1600 on the K&K and $ 2100 on the Adagios.
Few pics of the actual units for sale.
Still have that Lovan rack that the famous @Olson_jr once owned so you know it sound good!20160215_183954.jpg20160309_120950.jpg20160425_203056.jpg20160425_203111.jpg20160625_090052.jpg

The CD player is, The tuner and the Wright preamp are both in the Breezeway system . The tonearm is serving up goodness.
