FS: AURALiC MERAK 200w Monoblocks - Pair

Pair AURALiC MERAK 200wpc Monoblocks - $1995

The reviews say it all about Xuanqian Wang’s brilliant engineering with his hybrid Class A/D amps. Maybe lesser known, but one of the best. AURALiC is now well known for some of the absolute best streamers and DACs on the market. If you are not familiar with MERAKs, please read a review or two. Originally $5000/pair. Selling for very fair price of $1995, firm, plus shipping from 98225. I will cover paypal fee at asking price. At the time of posting, these are the only MERAKs for sale in the US. I see one pair from Germany at $2900.

Condition, according to the Audiomart rating guidelines is “good” due to a couple of cosmetic issues. though functionally excellent. See photos. Two small flaws, one on a rear corner, one on a front corner. One top surface has a slight rise that doesn’t show in photos. You will only see it if you get the right angle in the right light. Overall, they are very presentable.

I am selling these as my speakers will be very high efficiency full range drivers that do best with low power amps.

Other notes: shipping without power cords as most will use their preferred cables. I will include a couple of standard power cords if needed. Note that XLR connections are required, there are no RCA inputs.

I see notifications that two people apparently have tried to message about these amps. One of you apparently tried to message me twice on the Auralic Aries that is now sold. I never received email notification and clicking on the notification here comes up with blank messages, so I’m not sure what’s going on.

If you are trying to contact me, please leave a post on this thread so I know. If I don’t get your message, I will try messaging you. Thx
