I generally have some used and demo equipment available at discounted prices. I pay shipping on all items not on consignment.

Blue Circle NSC/ph and NSL. Solid state. 28 watts. Built-in phono stage based on the BC703. I am considering selling my Blue Circle NSCph and NSL now that I have the new NSI-GY “G” here. Since I no longer have JMR Offrandes in house, there is no immediate role for the NSC/NSL to play and there are a good many Offrandes around the audio world that could benefit greatly from this pair. They are the electronics Offies dream of.  I am not in a hurry and I have no price in mind. I welcome inquiries and will take them one at a time until I find the right match.

The NSC/NSL is an extraordinary preamp/amp combination. Working as a pair, with their power supplies connected by design, they are stunning. “Ridiculous” was the first word out of my mouth on first hearing. Overall and together they are not inferior to Gilbert’s best NSI, they are just less versatile. If my house could accommodate both Offrandes and JMR Abscissa Jubilees, the NSC/NSL would remain here forever. But it can’t and I don’t want this pair sitting around in boxes. The two units have dark walnut/curly maple faceplates and are still relatively young. (You can see the faceplates on some other amps on my website.) Retail price new is a bit over $36,000 with the phono stage and custom faceplates. But don’t let that price scare you away. My main goal here is to find them a proper home.

Blue Circle NSW 300. 300/600 watt stereo amp. The new, high powered N series solid state stereo amp from Gilbert. It has extraordinary reserves of power — 600 watts into 4 ohms — and we can hear that when an orchestra opens up: wonderful fullness, dynamic energy, deep and authoritative bass, and an absolute sense of overall ease. Under 100 hours as demo. Custom walnut/curly maple faceplate. $5900 shipped. (New $10,400 with custom faceplate.)

Blue Circle 2K4 300 watt (600 watts into 4 ohms) Class D stereo amplifier with external power supply, both with curly maple/dark walnut faceplates. More complete sounding cousin of the ELD BD. Light use as demo. Moving to make room for other gear. $4000 shipped. (Price new: $8000 with the power supply and custom faceplates).
