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.
