Refurbished Monoprice Hybrid Tube Amp w/Bluetooth for $56 w/free S&H after coupon

For regular purchases, Monoprice has two coupons good until Saturday night. Coupon FALL gets you $5 off a $25+ order, while coupon SAVINGS is a percentage coupon, 20% off a $200+, their best coupon these days if you are making a big purchase. Keep in mind, only coupon-eligible items count towards the minimum. Meaning if you have $50 of coupon-eligible items in your cart along with $300 in ineligible, you can’t use the coupon. You must have $200+ in coupon-eligible items.

Separate from those coupons, the refurbished Hybrid Tube Amp with Bluetooth, model 15527, drops from $80 to $56 with coupon code 25WATT entered over there. It also qualifies for free standard US shipping!

Focal Utopia + iFi PRO iCAN Head Amp + Astell&Kern AK 100 II DAP/DAC/amp for $4000

The FOCAL Utopia flagship headphone goes for $4000 in new condition at authorized dealers. For a limited time, authorized dealer Adorama.com is it in a bundle with a FREE iFi and Astell and Kern for the same price of $4000 with free shipping.

The two free items are:

  • iFi Pro iCAN Headphone Amplifier
  • Astell and Kern AK 100 II DAP/DAC/amp (which is also available in the Elear bundle)

The ifi PRO head-amp currently goes for $1700 but occasionally goes on sale for $1300. The AK 100 II is currently on sale at authorized dealers for $539 with a $900 regular price.

So these are definitely not throwaway freebies 🙂 But if you don’t want them, you can always trade them or sell them or gift them to friends and families and such. They could end up subsidizing a chunk of the Utopia purchase price 🙂

This is a limited time offer!

PS: if you were 49.95% vs 49.95% on whether to get this bundle, this may help tilt the scales: they are also including a Pig Hog 1/4″ TRS Female to 3.5mm (1/8″) Male Stereo Adapter for free 🙂
