Hi!

I’m selling this outstanding power amplifier Apollon NC800SL, bought on HeadFi earlier this year.
I will copy here most of the description of the original owner as it's still in the same great condition:

Bought originally in January 2019. Built around two Hypex NC500 modules, true dual mono design, with custom input buffers and Sonic Imagery SI990 Pro opamps. I also include 4 sparkos SS2590 Pro opamps.
Only the lower binding posts are actually available, an electrical engineer modified it so the other stereo parallel outputs go to a 4 pin XLR out, so it can directly used with hard to drive, low sensitivity headphones, the modification was done with JPS cables. The performance with headphones is absolutely outstanding, one of the very best I've heard. One small part of the back plate is very slightly taken off (it can be seen in one of the pictures), due to the perforation needed for the headphone output modification. The amp new with VAT sells for over 2400€.

























Selling the amp at 1100 => sold! I change my setup to switch to an integrated amp.

I can add:
- short (50cm) pair of XLR interconnect with Neutrik connectors and Neotech cable for an additional 40e
- a RME ADI2 DAC (version 1), in perfect condition, for another 800e (not for sale separately). A great matching DAC/Preamp for the Apollon.

Cheers

Charles
