This ARC Reference preamp was $12,000 new. It is in excellent condition, works perfectly, with original remote control, accessories, box, packing, manual, balance of warranty.
Original owner, non-smoking environment, purchased from an authorized dealer. If you know high-end audio, you know this is a hand-made 30lb state-of-the-art preamp - likely the most highly regarded and well reveiwed ever made (except for their $25K REF5 Anniversay Version). Incredible bass impact, depth, and control, with dymanics that are startling. Music is delivered from a totally black background because the Reference 5 is utterly quiet - unlike any other vacuum-tube preamp - with absolutely no grain or electronic artifacts. Six sets of balanced and single-ended inputs, a unity gain (processor) input, and three sets of balanced and single-ended outputs are installed for ease of connectivity and flexibility. Balance of warranty included
