Named Class A Recommended Component by Stereophile magazine, this all-tube preamp performs
well above its price point (see reviews below), absurdly so at this used price. I might add that it warms up quickly, and PL’s
soft-on and autobias make for long tube life and ease of ownership. Upon power-up, the unit’s LED glows red
at first and then green to indicate ready for playback. What emerges is quiet, clear, timbre-rich sound, and I have partnered it with both tube amps and solid state, my preference changing with different speakers. The preamp was stellar through it all.
I have enjoyed this preamp for about 2 years and am parting
with it only because I wanted balanced outputs. Unit is in excellent condition both sonically and
cosmetically. The only possible
flaw I can find is the cage seems to slide into the rubber grommets on the
right side more easily than those on the left.
Includes hefty metal remote with new battery.
I estimate I used it maybe 500 to 600 hours. Comes from non-smoking home. Ships well protected in PrimaLuna packaging and double box
but not a preamp box (see photos).
Includes copy of manual. I
pay Paypal fee but ask buyer to pay ensured shipping costs.
