Hopefully it's reputation precedes it here so I needn't go on about how there's no other tube preamp close to this in this price range. Does it get any better than this? Sure, and I'm selling this only because I just got an Atma-sphere MP-1 MK III back with remote, integrated phono, etc. But is it more like "flavors" at this stage? I'd say so. Get a taste of the big boys, albeit with a hairshirt puritan minimalsim (no remote, dual mono volume knobs, etc...). If you're all about the sound than this is the ticket. Though, I think it's pretty sharp looking, too. THis one is in fantastic cosmetic shape, with nary a scratch or fingerprint on it. Will come with Russian rectifier and Russian 6H23N tubes, though I'll swap them out with Tungsram E88CCs from Upscale Audio (with boxes and printouts) for an extra $30.
I have fabulous original double box and packaging as well as Original Manual and various printout/literature.
I will cover domestic ground if you can mark paypal as "personal" so there's no fee (or feel free to add the 3% if you'd like their services).
