JOULE ELECTRA LAP-100MKIII ALL TUBE PREAMP - USED - $2,450. We have a excellent condition used Joule preamp here. This is a LAP-100MKIII... which translates into a Joule LA-100MKIII tube line stage with a on board OPS-1 MM/MC tube phono preamp with a outboard power supply unit. This is a single owner trade in from a long time customer. The unit is 10 to 11 years old, and in really great shape for its age. I have gone through both the line stage and phono stage , checked tubes (installed fresh NOS 5751's and 6350s in the line stage & phono stage then rebiased), then have thoroughly tested/played the unit for several days. The line stage delivered a terrific full bodied and very dimensional sound with great palpability. The phono stage is switchable between MM/MC gain - this unit has 47Kohm loading resistors soldered to the phono stage input. This unit has a few custom touches as the unit was specially built for my customer by Joule-Electra: First is the power supply chassis is mounted in a small vented cage chassis (std preamp used a more conventional looking chassis enclosure) which can be more easily placed off the equipment rack (on the floor for example) and well away from the main chassis. The unit has a processing loop added (additional switch on from panel to the left of the mono/stereo switch and additional connectors on rear panel) so that a Merlin BAM can be used with all available inputs. Its originally packaging is long gone, but we can very safely package it for ground shipment. The unit is clean and cosmetically excellent - especially when you consider its age - conservatively rated at 8/10. With the options this preamp has, it retailed for aorund $6,000 when new.
