Sutherland Engineering PhD with Upgraded board and original Chassis and Box [Expired]


no longer for sale

I'm selling this nearly new Sutherland PhD phono preamp complete with chassis & new upgraded board replacement.  This is a board designed by Ron Sutherland and it sounds fantastic. It is no longer battery powered rather a heavily isolated DC supply.  We received and unit back because of battery leakage and are able to offer this great deal to the right buyer.  The unit and chassis are no longer made so they are hard to come by. 

Same great sound and circuit as the original PhD but with no battery replacement or long term chance of leakage.  Loading and Gain are adjusted by changing out plug-in resistors rather than the plug-in boards.  This provides you with nearly unlimited options.  There is one very small mark on the front left of the faceplate.  12awg steel and weighs about 20 lbs. There are a few screw marks on the bottom but can’t be seen when the unit is together.  Updated with new rubber feet.

Original box, packaging and instructions included. I even have the original 2007 invoice from Acoustic Sounds to a dealer. I will install and include whatever gain and loading resistors you prefer.

The original was $3,000 over 10 years ago and the sound is very sought after.  Comes with 48v power supply, US IEC power cord & chassis.  See sutherlandphd.com for more details on the board.  I also have just the assembled and tested boards if interested. They sell for $1,000 each.  I'm asking $1,250 for this complete unit including CONUS Ground Shipping. If you want international shipping let me know and I’ll get you a quote. Please let me know if you have any questions.
