This Goldmund has been in my private collection for a long time, and I've finally decided to let someone else enjoy it. Was hoping to pair it with the matching preamp at some point, but I was never able to find one. They're *that* rare.

Incredibly articulate, and capable of great detail and sound-staging.

Plus it was built to the highest quality standard, only rivaled by brands like Nagra, Spectral, and T+A. Designed and built in the late 1980-90's in Switzerland.

Manageable in size and weight but capable of driving even the more difficult loads presented by speakers.

Thoroughly tested in our well equipped lab and working as it should throughout.

Conservatively rated at 100W x 2.

Operation Notes: After first plugging it in to your wall receptacle, a 3-5 minute waiting period is required before the unit can be powered on. At that point, a push and hold of the Power button turns on the Yellow and Green Power/Standby LED's. The Standby button can then be used to toggle the unit in and out of standby mode.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Solid State Amplifiers:

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure there are no signs of stress or aging. Capacitors are checked for telltale sings of bulging or leaking, resistors are checked for signs of overheating or cracking, and transistors are checked for signs of stress or damage.

We then power up the unit carefully and run a simple 1k sine wave while monitoring the output on an oscilloscope for signs of distortion or noise. Finally, we run the amplifier to its full rated power into the appropriate resistive load provided by our Sencore amplifier tester. If there is an issue, it will usually be noticeable at this point. If everything reads clean, we will often test for THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) measured by our Keithley distortion meter, and compare it against the original manufacturers specifications. The amplifier then remains powered on to "burn in" on our test bench for a few hours to make sure there are no heat related issues. If there are balanced inputs available they will be also be tested.

Final testing involves pushing actual music thorough the amplifier. We've learned over time that some issues are only noticeable to a trained ear while listening to familiar source material. Our test bench has reference vintage KEF speakers that we're very familiar with which quickly reveal any discrepancies. Some amplifiers will then move into our listening room where they are tested with our in-house reference speakers of choice.
