I am on my second of my 5 year cycles. I buy some of the most amazing stereo set-ups and then realize I never have time to listen to it and sell all my equipment 3 years later. Then 2 years after that, I think "Man, I really would like a great stereo system" and it starts over again.
I wanted this component so badly I dreamed of owning it for years (Seriously. I actually lied to someone at a party about owning one). When I bought it, I was hoping it would become a family male heirloom. No point in me hyping this tube preamp. You know how good this is.
Comes with original remote. I will deliver/meet anyone in 100 mile radius of Washington DC. Paypal, add 3%.
