This is a like new demo unit with low hours. New units also available. Beautiful and detailed.
Components made by Canary are extremely well designed using high quality parts. No disappointing almost empty cases here. This preamp must be experienced! Shockingly good sound quality. This is a demo unit with just a few hours on it. Mint condition.
