Sutherland Engineering PHD One of the Best [Expired]


no longer for sale

A very fine phono preamplifier that does not present for sale very often.  I have changed to a digital setup and so I no long need it.  I may regret letting it go, as they are hard to find.  Its  most unusual feature is its power source, which are 16 internal AA batteries, It is very quiet, smooth, and detailed, with a variety of gain and impedance settings.  I have used it with various MC cartridges, some of which have outputs in the .2 mv range.  Of course, there is a 47Kohm setting if you wish to use a MM or an SUT.  Check out the various reviews of this piece on line.  It is well taken care of, and is in good cosmetic condition.  I don't have the original box, but it will be packed well and double boxed for shipping.  It is rather hefty, so shipping will be at buyer's expense.  Shipping to US addresses seem to be around 50 dollars, but I will ask buyers to pay the actual amount.  No international shipping.  I will not use Federal Express for shipping.

Rated 8/10 for age only.
