    It had to have been a bidding war. Even if the amp was NOS - NIB w/ 100%+ tubes & 9 extra NIB spare tubes, I wouldn't think it would sell for more than $500-$600. :confused:

    I would be having bidder's remorse right about now, had I bid $500 but can't even imagine the feeling after bidding $1999!!

    it's just a "parts amp" the only thing any good in it is the transformers.....

    i might build another tube audio amp using the transformers out of it someday
