Now here's something you won't see every day!
In fact I've never seen another one for sale.
Absolute highest quality all valve construction - hand built in US, featuring point to point wiring.
Features two preamp valves and 8 6550 power valves.
Gold Plated RCA connectors - I'm including one of OBBM's RCA to Speakon cables.
Demeters list price on these is $3500 on top would be shipping 20% VAT + Import duty of 2.5% which will amount to something like $4,500
This power amp is in near immaculate condition with just a couple of minor scratches on the side of the casing.

Designed for heavy duty use, the VTHF-300M is equally at home in the studio or on the road. Its all tube high fidelity design rivals and surpasses the sound quality of many of the so-called audiophile amplifiers, yet sells for substantially less. Its awesome power (300 W RMS pentode/150 W triode) can run any speaker through its paces with the accuracy, definition and fullness that only tube amplifiers can deliver. Featuring a custom designed and high current bifiler audio output transformer, regulated B+ to the preamplifier section, individual output tube bias for long tube life, pentode/triode switch, variable feedback control, heavy duty binding posts, gold plated RCA input connector (1/4 phono and Jensen balanced 3-pin also available), optional two speed fan, toroidal power transformer, solid power supply (880 mf @ 800 volts), Demeter selected tubes, a beautiful heavy duty aluminum and steel chassis, all hand built construction in the U.S.A. using only the best quality components.

Bass Player Magazine reviewer probably summed it up perfectly when he ended his review with:
“It's hard to go back to a solid-state power amp after listening to the VTHF-300M's heavenly sound. this powerhouse is also one of the few pieces of professionally audio gear that's equally at home kicking out a 4-string funk as it is filling a living room with Mozart. You'll probably have to save a ton of pennies to afford one, but it will put a smile on your every time you use it.”
