    Default FS - Philips 22AH380 Black Tulip Power Amplifier (DC380)

    Philips 22AH380 / DC380 ‘Black Tulip’ Power Amplifier

    Many of you will already know about the reputation of the iconic Philips Black Tulip range, but for those who don't, it's where Philips' best 'audiophile' designs ended up.

    This is the bigger and better of the two power amps that were made and has performed flawlessly for me, producing a big, bold sound with plenty of grip in the bass.

    It has two big illuminated VU meters, variable output, speaker switching and warning lights for excess heat and DC.

    It is 220v with a captive mains cable & European 2-pin plug, on which I have put a UK adapter.
    I will include the four speaker terminal adapters for easier cable connection.

    This amp is in timewarp physical condition as per photos, including the groovy ‘block diagram’ graphic - I would rate it 9/10.

    Power - 100 W at 8 ohms, 180W at 4 ohms
    Input Sensitivity - 1 V
    Weight - 11.5kg
    Dimensions - 482 X 111 X 340 mm

    At this stage I am only offering collection from Highgate, London N6, as I don’t have suitable packing.

    £350 cash on collection, or ppl gift please.

    This Black Tulip sounded sublime with my Consonance tube pre but performs superbly with tubes or solid state ...

    Just a reminder that whilst I don't have any packaging for this amp I will be Manchester next week and could take the amp with me for collection.

    Only 300 quid but a really serious performer - fab value for money in my humble estimation.
