This Cary Audio Design SLP-88 Preamplifier is in mint condition. There are no blemishes, scratches or dings of any kind to be found. It features 5 line level inputs and dual output, enabling it to serve as the center of your hifi system. Also, I am including a pair of brand new ElectroHarmonix gold pin 6SN7s with the Pre amp.
The SLP-88 is in perfect working order, and made a big improvement in my system. Also, the remote control, which is run by a separate circuit to avoid any sound quality degradation, is a really convenient feature.
The headphone amp function is single-ended triode accomplished with output transformers to match earphones from 40 to 600 ohms. Also: it can and should be switched off by a knob on the front panel when not in use so that the device operates exclusively as a preamp. When you want to listen with headphones, simply click the knob and the SLP-88 becomes a very competent headphone amp.
This is a high-end preamp built by a reputable company for a great price. There are better preamplifiers out there for sure, but not in this price range.

I will ship using whichever service the buyer prefers. However, buyer must agree to insure the item for the full sale amount. Buyer pays for selected shipping method. I am not a dealer, just a grad student and an enthusiast like the rest of us, but I will try to ship it as quickly as possible once payment goes through.
