Fully balanced tube preamp, well regarded by owners and reviewers for good reason. I have had numerous preamps in my system over the last 3 years and the Calypso was always the keeper. This preamp is extremely quiet, zero tube hiss or noise. Price is firm and below blue book.
Serial number is 2150.
Faceplate of the preamp has no flaws, scratches, or dings. Top cover and sides have some minor scratches, visible in bright light but barely visible in normal daylight. I will post photos to this ad soon.
Preamp will come with NOS tubes purchased from Vintage Tube Services, original cost of $250 (two NOS RCA 12AX7s, two Siemens-relabeled 6DJ8s). I no longer have the stock tubes. These NOS tubes, however, sound a lot better than the stock tubes.
Preamp comes with original box, remote control, and manual. Will be double boxed and shipped by Fed Ex Ground within the continental US only. Buyer pays shipping.
Reason for sale: I no longer have time to listen to my 2-channel system and am dismantling it. See my ad for a VAC Phi 200 tube amp.
