Make Offer! - AUDIO AERO La Fontaine PREAMP, 24/192 DAC, USB DAC, CD/SACD PLAYER - Make Offer!!!
State of the art digital music player from Audio Aero. The La Fontaine is a full feature high quality tube analog preamp packed in with a fantastic sounding digital front end that includes TEAC transport to play CD & SACDs, Asynchronous 24/192 USB DAC, and conventional DAC with multiple digital inputs (from AT&T glass to RCA co-ax). Excellent digital performance is attained through the Anagram Technologies design 32 Bit STARS digital processing system along with superb analog performance via a (balanced) 6031W tube based line stage. Not need for a preamp with this music player as it can directly drive any power amplifier with excellent performance, This unit (serial Number CD 024) is brand new black chassis unit (only removed from its box once to shoot the attached video - see link below), comes with Audio Aero warranty (we where Audio Aero dealer for over 10 years). The players power supply works on any international line voltage or frequency, so no switching is required - the LaFontaine will plug in and work wherever you are.
REASONABLE OFFERS WILL BE CONSIDERED - Serious inquires only please . . . MAKE OFFER (Realistic offers please! I won't bother replying to unrealistic ones). Please call or e-mail with your offer through Audiogon if you like. We received this player as part of a upgrade program from Audio Aero for owners of previous Audio Aero (Prestige) players - and one have one of these La Fontaine Music Players available which we will let go at a special price. US Retail price for this player is $25,000 and it IS new and has NOT even been used for demo use. - (Box opened to verify condition and that player works - see YouTube video of this here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5dyC5RcZyY ) Signature Sound LaFontaine UnBox Video. Note I have rated the item 10/10 not as new because Audigon rating guide requires a item listed as new to be factory sealed - since this was opened once to inspect and film the video above it does not meet the Auidiogon definition of new. I could have left the unit sealed in the box, but feel more comfortable in verifying after a several thousand miles of travel from France to the distributor to me - that the player was in perfect working order before selling/shipping to any customer.
DELIVERY NOTES: In the North East USA (NY, CT, NH, VT, ME, PA, OH, MD, DE, VA, NJ) I will personally hand deliver the player and set-it up if the buyer wishes. Otherwise, we strongly suggest that shipment of the player be made (fully insured - by you our the carrier you chose) by Federal Express Air service.
PAYMENT NOTE: While credit card is fine, you will save more by paying by Bank Wire transfer. If the unit is bough out right on a international sale, I will require most if not all the purchase amount to be paid vis Bank Wire transfer.
TRADE-INs: I will consider trade-ins towards the purchase price (no speakers though please! They are often too big/heavy and have too many resulting shipping hassles with speaker trade-ins). Not looking to do any straight up trades though.
Some of the pictures shown are not of the actual unit - We have used stock photo's to leave/keep the actual unit as new in its factory carton and have attached a few pics of the box & manual.
