. This item is sold at this time.Unless otherwise noted.Please send the initial e mail to my personal address since I may not get e mail notifications from Agon though I think they are getting better. Please use firstname.lastname@example.org. You are looking at an almost brand new ASR phono stage with approximately 40 hours or less on the unit.The unit is loaded minus the mono switch.It is in mint condition and I will provide warranty for 12 months after your purchase. Although ,I doubt that you need any.The unit is very musical in that real , non digital way. Very very organic in its presentation / The best word to describe this is "Life Like" . Very spooky in that manner. Several times during the Getz Jobim 45 RPM I simply looked around to see who was talking so closely and intimately was the sound. Although I think that that recording is also a gem.Retail price of this unit is around $10,000 brand new. Demo units are being sold on Agon for $6500 . My asking price is $5000 including shipping . The two units weigh around 80 lbs I think.I am selling simply due to financial situation .I have everything so it is in mint condition. I also have 100% satisfactory rating in Audiogon and have been a member since 1995 ,there probably is around 12 to 15 transactions that were not reported from the beginning till the last Agon update. If you are countering please make sure that you are serious. This unit is simply amazing in retrieval of micro and macro detail. It is also spookily quiet due to battery power supply unit.The exact retail is $9840.00 not including shipping.Serious offers will be gladly entertained.Just please be fair. Low ballers will be ignored. I will split the Paypal costs with the buyer and pay shipping in U.S . Over Seas buyers please be aware that I will only ship USPS fully insured unless you are taking responsibility of loss or damage. I will not ship to Moscow. Sorry ,too many losses in that Country's custom. Seems that the custom people there love audio stuff .If purchasing with cashiers check I will discount the unit appropriately. Only buyers with good feedback can use the last method . I have 15 years of trade. Over 40 transactions of which around 35 or 36 are in writing.My reputation is very important to me . The Purist Audio Venustas cable that I am selling is an RCA to Din if interested.By the way I am also selling my turntable which is a beautiful Acoustic Solid Solid Royale .
