BOULDER 2008 PHONO PREAMPLIFIER MATCHED WITH BOULDER 2000 POWER SUPPLY
Manufactured by: BOULDER AMPLIFIER, INC., Boulder, CO:
If you are looking at this listing then you already know about this fantastic phono pre-amp. The Boulder 2008 has been a perennial Recommended Component rated A+ by Stereophile Magazine, pretty much in a class of its own. Stereophile's Michael Fremer describes the sound as "..faultless in every area of performance.." concluding that , "..it was like analog on acid.." (See: Stereophile July, 2002). But, quality does not come cheap. The Boulder 2008 phono preamp & 2000 power supply system currently retails new at about $36,000.
My units have been well taken care of and very lightly used since I bought them in 2007. I have rated the two units as an Excellent "9" on the AudiogoN Grading Scale. Included in the sale will be: Two original factory double boxes and packing materials, Leather bound Owner's Manual, Original factory supplied Power Chord and Balanced XLR cables for connecting the Pre-Amp to the Power Supply.
I bought my Boulder 2008/2000 from Audio Unlimited in Denver CO in October, 2007. It has been an very enjoyable part of my system every since.
The AudioGoN Blue Book average used price is $22,760, with the last sale in August 2009 at $23,000
I am asking $21,750. Payment may be made by cashier's check from an acceptable bank or PayPal. If paid by check then I will wait until the check clears before shipping. If Paypal is used then please add 3% or $ 690 to the purchase price. I plan to ship each component in its original factory double box anywhere in the United States. I will ship by UPS or FedEx Ground with insurance. Buyer will pay all shipping cost including insurance. Please contact me if you want any additional information.
