Quicksilver Silver 88 Mono Amplifier (One pair)


  • $4,495.00


The Quicksilver Audio Silver 88 mono-block amplifiers are hand-built and hardwired in the USA. What makes the Silver 88 amp truly special is its harmonic presentation. Instruments and vocals have a realism, dimensionality, body and harmonic structure that even the best solid-state amplifiers somehow cannot quite reproduce.

Employing only two KT-88 output tubes, the Silver 88 provides 80 watts without stressing or pushing these tubes to their limit, and with the lowest output impedance and distortion of all the Quicksilver amplifiers, the Silver 88 brings a new level of performance to this power range. The super low 0.5 ohms output impedance of the Silver 88 is almost unheard of among tube amplifiers and allows the unit to drive very difficult speaker loads you'd generally never think of using with tube gear.

An on-board bias meter allows individual adjustment of each output tube and, with low-noise power supplies and circuitry, the Silver 88 can still be used on very efficient speakers. Two power transformers and 180 Joules of energy storage provide effortless dynamic response, transmitting the full musical impact of sudden shifts from soft to loud. A modification of the sleek look of the V4, the Silver 88 has a chrome-plated chassis and carbide black transformer cover.

Very good 78 RPM stylus

The LP Gear Cerapreme 78 stylus brings the most out of the CEC/Chuo Denshi type ceramic cartridge for 78 RPM reproduction. If you put this stylus into a real Japanese CEC cartridge in a serious turntable, you end up with a very nice 78 reproducer. If you put it in a little Numark PT01, it makes for a very nice portable player for 78s. At its current price, this stylus is hard to beat.

I can't give a review at this time as the needles were purchased as spares and I have not used any, but they look exactly as the original.


Item received in good condition and performing well.
