Audible Illusions Modulus M3 with MM Phono Factory Refurbished with 6 Month Factory Warranty. Audible Illusions only accepts pristine used Preamps for trade to a new M3B or L3A Models. Only the very best units sent in for trade go thru the refurbishment program. These units are carefully checked adjusted to factory standards, any parts that are not to factory specs are replaced and a new set of cryo treated tubes are installed. 

These factory reconditioned Preamps are very rare to come by and they sell very quickly.
The Preamp is still sealed in its original box, the images of the preamp given are my preamp which is identical, the open top image is from factory. 

Paypal and shipping fees are included at my asking price to the 48 contiguous states, anything different from my asking price will attract shipping and paypal fees.  Thanks for looking, have a nice day. Shipping is thru Fedex only with insurance and tracking number. Factory Double Boxed.
