Up for sale is my beautiful ZYX CCP-1 Version 2 pre pre amp. I love this unit, beautiful sound, and excellent gain, and its definatly audio jewelry. This is the current version II. It's pre loaded at 100 ohm.
Sounds every bit as good as the legendary TX-103 SUT's which I also have.
Nearly perfect condition, it does have a tiny impression in the wooden case on the top that wont show in a pic, but its pretty insignificant.
If you are looking for Step Up Tranformers for your moving coil cart this pre pre will outperform most of them, provided that a 100 ohm load, or close to it, is what you need. It is battery powered, but it sounds best when run on its charging supply as seen in my pics.
This Pre-Preamp is dedicated to ZYX cartridges, but it works perfectly with all MC cartridges with a load of about 100 Ohms.
Handmade in Japan by constructor/designer of ZYX Mr. Nakatsuka.
All components made by hand. The labor quality of all components is immaculate.
The highest quality cryogenic purified monocrystal copper - exactly the same used by ZYX in its 1000 series cartridges and coils.

This is a battery-operated device with the option of powering by a dedicated transformer. After full charging about 5-6 hours of continuous battery operation is possible.
