12ax7 is a tube - into audio, the best gear is tube or valve based.

If you dont mind the older model the S3 in question is a reasonable price in my opinion with reasonable k's - however you might like to make a silly offer given that it is not the facelift model and it has now been sitting around. I would want to see the service records - if it has been serviced by an Audi approved dealer then they should be able to provide details on all service work. You may also want to consider offering subject to independent check by Gilltraps. For your info I know a dealer who traded a 1 yr old S3 225hp with 8k for $45k !   Known weaknesses are coils, ball joints ( back ), gearbox particlularly 2-3 change

No have not spoken to the owner yetso will give him a call and see how negotiable he is on the price based on fact that it is not a facelift model. Can you get a mechanical warranty from an Audi dealer? I think they call it the silver circle? or do you have to buy the car from a dealer to qualify for this?
