It does say 'new other' and is a 120v version so I would assume it was one of those old stock new in box from the US.

Yes, it does say "Brand new from Canada, only opened from box and tested. Super pre power amplifier, very special DAC and an excellent phono stage. Very special amplifier of a very high order. Very musical. See Pink Fish for the huge praise there is on this unit.

Being new it is 110v but for uk buyers a step down transformer will be provided with absolutely no detrimental effects"

Interesting, would be tempted if I didn't have one. Why would someone just open the box and then flog it on Ebay? Answers on a postcard.

I bought the amplifier JVC ax z1010 on basis of this thread so i thought i'd let you know my experience. The JVC replaced a AVI S21 integrated, speakers are Nubert Nuvero 60, sources are/were SBT with Teddy Pardo PS into audio GD dac (nfb28) and raspberry pi with IQaudio digi+ Using the K2 on the JVC and raspberry pi with IQaudio dacpro.

My amp history is Yamaha receiver, Naim nait 5i, nait XS, Sonneteer Alabster, Anatek a50 (brilliant, i kept this one) and an Avi S21. I listen to all sorts of music, Jazz ( Eric Trufaz, Miles, Blue note) rock ( Dave Matthews, Zappa, alternative) blues (Eric Bibb), classical on the radio.

I think this amp is fantastic, i love the AVI for its power en grip on complex music but after 9/10 o clock on the volume it can be a bit harsh.

The JVC has the power without the harshness and it can play really loud with ease. I listen at night a lot also and on low volume it is also very good. Bass and detail are there even on low volume. The K2 dac is a real surprise. The Iqaudio digiboard coax out into the dac sounds very good with a nice full presentation. In direct mode the K2 brings a little bit more treble/detail but on most music i use the normal setting as it sounds more natural.

I bought the FX 1010 tuner also with cable and fm (on outside antenna) and this is a nice source as well. Some stations are pretty close in sound quality to the raspberry set up.

So in short i think this is a great amp and can't see anything better in my system and room. I' ve had it serviced completely and love it so much that i bought a second one (back up...you never know) when the opportunity came.

Glad you like it.

To me.....it's the best amp I've heard.
Plus superb phono stage and DAC.

BARGAIN.
