Here is a rare chance to buy a Legendary Accuphase C-280L Precision Stereo Preamplifier with MM/MC Phono Stage. It was Fully Serviced in October 2015 by Authorized Swiss Accuphase dealer (original receipt included)!
C-280L is considerably the best sounding of 280 series.
I bought it directly from the first owner and it`s very very well kept. Technically 100% working and sounds addictingly good, much better than most Today's top preamps. Physically almost like new condition. No scratches, dents or visible wear! Slight usage signs are visible only in very very close inspection. The condition is much better than most that I have seen fore sale over the years on several webpages.
ONLY ONE VERY SMALL FLAW is that The Magnetic Closing Mechanism of the Flap, which functions according to the push-ballpoint principle, does not always snap in immediately, one sometimes has to fumble a bit or just stick something between the borders of the switch so you can fully close the lid. I use a piece of cut teflon tube for this. It`s probably a easy fix but I haven´t had time to drag it to repair-shop.
To me Accuphase C-280L sounds much better than a newer C-2410 that I also had some time ago. Accuphase C-280L has arguably some of the best integrated MM/MC phono stages available. Newer Accuphase preamps do not have this feature. ______________________________________________________________________
