I purchased this linestage preamp in 2016. Perfect condition. All documentation, manual, remote, and original box are perfect. No phono stage but, the board can be added. Loaded with Teflon capacitors as this is the SE version but, fully burnt in as I used a white & pink noise disc for 350 hours. Low hours of use beyond that. Still has the factory tube and sounds good but, many need a new tube shortly. Glorious sounding – all the hype is correct. This is the one.
I prefer old school checks but, can do Paypal. Enquire. US shipping only. Five day shipping through FedEx included. I have plenty of feedback on Agon and Ebay as well under the same name. Treat yourself right this Christmas.
"virtually the same" line-stage circuit as the GAT, as well as some other features derived from the GAT. Additionally, the ET3 can be used as a line stage, or with an optional phono card, as a full-fledged preamplifier. This is one I'd like to bring home" ---ABSOLUTE SOUND MAGAZINE Editors Choice Award 2017
“The ET3SE is just one of those preamplifiers that makes your music collection come alive, especially after it gets an hour or two to fully warm up.
Moreover, the preamplifier’s hybrid design strikes a perfect balance, offering a punchy sound that will have you clamoring to try and define. Whereas some hybrid designs end up representing a compromise, the C-J blends the best of both worlds—extremely quiet, providing healthy tonal contrast, yet powerful and controlled, with weight and accuracy at both ends of the tonal spectrum.” ---TONE Audio.com Exceptional Value Award
