New Issue Western Electric 300B Matched Pair *3-Day Auction* [Expired]
At Reference Components Ltd, we are constantly testing different components, mixing & matching, etc. We recently did in-house testing of several 300B amplifiers before returning them to the manufacturers. For testing, we purchased a matched pair of Western Electric new-issue 300B tubes direct from Western Electric. There are 450 hours on this pair, and per the manufacturer, this tube is rated at 40,000 hours(!).
Balanced, Powerful, Refined
The WE 300B sound is balanced, powerful and refined with quality bass from the lowest frequencies through the upper bass. The midrange above is a thing of beauty; dulcet tones, seductive vocals, instruments of all types dimensional and present, all heightening the participatory elements of music.
Burnished and Beautifully Seductive
High frequencies are at once transparent, lovely, sweet, burnished and beautifully seductive. The air and space between performers are extraordinary, performers appear on a quiet and focused soundstage whose width and depth are masterfully rendered. You don’t have to search to find the sweet spot with a WE 300B amplifier, it’s all around you.
Although the 5-year warranty is unfortunately not transferable to the buyer, this pair has about 450 hours on them, which is approximately only 1% of their rated life, but are more than enough hours for anything to go wrong, and they performed flawlessly.
Terms of sale are that we will issue an invoice for the purchase price plus insured shipping, and buyer will pay by link with credit card or bank transfer only. We do not accept Paypal. Once payment has cleared, we ship within two business days thereafter, securely packed with plenty of foam to protect against shock, even if dropped. Final shipping cost will be calculated based on the buyer's zip code. Ships from Los Angeles, CA.
