For sale here is near mint, like new Da Vinci Audio Labs MC phono stage from their tube series - the Preziosa S MC Phono and the LCR-RIAA Driver. Although not in production any longer, it is still without a doubt one of the finest phono stages available and quite rare. The MC Phono unit is functional standalone, however, it is transformed when matched with the LCR-RIAA unit. What is on offer is the pairing of the two units with original Concept cables. Each unit has it's own separate Basic power supply with umbilical power cord which are not shown in the photos, but they are like new also, and is a simple black box. This combo retails for around 70K USD.
The design of both units are transformer coupled tube output circuits, with all transformers made inhouse. Two 6c45pi tubes are used in the LCR-RIAA driver unit, and four 6c45pi tubes in the phono stage. Solid aluminium chassis with isolated subchassis, supported on ceramic ball footers, minimalist classic design. Due to the extensive use of transformers and thick chassis for best isolation, the units are extremely dense and heavy. They are finely finished and built, like a Swiss watch. Both units look identical from the font, with only internals and output connections at the back differing. Can ship safely worldwide as I have all Original packaging as seen in the photos.
The photos show the front and back of the units and as you can see are in like new condition. They spend their time covered with paper to keep the dust off, and only taken off for photo purposes. The serial numbers in the photos have been edited out due to being burned in the past. I can provide you with any information you need, and more photos if you wish, so please do not hesitate to contact me.
You may ask why I am selling this? Life changes and priorities change. I have to make sacrifice and cut back on audio, so sad unfortunately, times for me.
I don't sell much here hence my feedback score is low, but rest assured, in the dealings I have gone through, there has never been any hassles.
My asking price is $38K AUD. The listed price is the US equivalent at the time of placing this listing, so please keep in mind currency exchange rates if you are interested in owning these fine pieces of art.
I rate it 8/10 just to be conservative, but the units are truly immaculate to say the least.
Thank you for looking!!
PS. Also shown in the photos is the shelf on which these units sit in my system. As seen I have matching Da Vinci Audio Labs Preziosa S Linestage too. Please feel free to enquire about the full suite. I feel the preamp and phono is the heart of any system, and with this stunning combination, the transformation this will bring to any system is in my opinion life changing. A system without this core would also be life changing!!
