For sale is one of the best preamplifiers out there, this is the limited full Black anodized version (NOT SE).
Caveat is during start up, there is a hum that stays for around 1 - 2 minute and subsides gradually. This happens 50% of the time during startup and the other times, its runs perfectly fine.
During those occasion, the unit performs flawlessly. I am being perfectly honest and not sure what the issue is.
I never tried any other tubes and that could be a possibility. I dont have to time to do a trial test and hence the asking price is reflected by the ratings at (6 out of 10). I will include the original silver face plate as well ($400).
Physical condition of the unit is excellent with no imperfections shown.
I feel sad selling this unit since it was the most complicated piece involved with arduous homework done to find my systems true attributes and it was the heart of my system. I replaced this with a ARC Ref pre and for those of you who don't have the extra $5k, you should seriously consider this since on certain CDs and LPs, I do prefer the Calypsos performances.
Please see my other adds for the Bel Canto Ref 1000 Monos and Magnepan 3.6R in Mahogany finish, Apogee MiniGrand in Piano Gloss with DAX..........
Selling due to a likely move unfortunately. 780.750.5017 Canada
