Ming Da integrated valve amplifier, Piccolo MC368-B902, latest model, boxed, excellent condition. Full UK spec sourced from Ming Da (UK). Double boxed in the maker’s very sturdy packing, not shown. Maker’s dust bag, gloves etc. This is the very latest Piccolo model from this well regarded maker. So new it came direct from Ming Da UK in July 2017 after their 48h burn in (via my official dealer order who reported none of the old models left with importer). The specs are in most respects the same as the model shown on the UK Ming Da site at. This has an all black finish (some UK dealers show a former model with brushed steel top), black not chrome knobs and no headphones o/p but the smaller valves have been upgraded by Ming Da as follows. 2 x 12AU7 replaced with 2 x 6SN7/6N8 equivalents which dealer states are’larger better sounding octal valves’. This wasn’t just a valve replacement by the makers as the new valve bases are larger and valves raised likely requiring a new main board design. Sounds fabulous on my speakers but moving to a phones only system. The amp includes a black painted aluminium cage, not shown (can be seen in part on internal shot). There is a very slight deformation of the cage bottom corner where back left peg sits (there on receipt) but would need to look to see it. I asked the importers why the model anonymity except the label on base and remarked along the lines of less is more in presentation is a recent trend. Please note this as a 240V unit and will require a not included transformer if the lcoal mains aren’t this standard.
