This is a pristine Simaudio Moon Evolution P-7 preamp. Fully balanced, dual-mono with all the features you'd want out of a linestage. I am the second owner. It is in excellent physical and functional condition. The original owner had it for ~5 years before selling to me, and sent it to Simaudio for a check-up before the sale. According to him it came back with a clean bill of health, and it certainly shows.
This is by far the best preamp I've owned, my history of which includes the PS Audio BHK preamp, Ayre K-5xeMP, and Pass Labs XP-10 among others. I love the sound signature, as it's incredibly revealing, smooth and dynamic without any glare, grain or harshness. It's neutral in absolute frequency response terms, but has a lovely golden quality to the mids that create an addictive listen. It also runs cool, and never even gets warm to the touch, which is a blessing down here in the South. I really don't want to sell it, but I'm looking to downgrade to something a bit less expensive. This is a perfect pairing with my PS Audio DirectStream DAC.
The P-7 was a Stereophile "Class A" rated component, indicating just how well-respected this pre is. Full review and measurements can be found here:
Includes original box, although it will be double boxed for protection. Also includes remote, power cord and manual.
Paypal fees are included in my asking price, but shipping is a flat $80 to the Lower 48 as this is a big piece of equipment. I'm willing to ship to Canada, but buyer is responsible for actual shipping costs which is roughly $150 per UPS.
Willing to drive a reasonable distance from Atlanta, GA for a local pickup for regional buyers.
