Audio Research LS2B MKII R tube preamplifier with remote control.
I graded it as 7/10 Good due a tiny nick on the top edge of the front, but it really is a 8/10 Very Good in every other aspect.
This unit works perfectly with no problems. It has a single Russian Gold Lion 6922 tube that tested good on my Sencore TC142 tube tester. As you can see from the photos it is in very good condition.
It includes the fully functioning original remote control and the original owners manual.
This preamplifier comes stock with very high gain. Audio Research provides an option to lower the gain. I took it to my local professional audio shop. (Tripoint Audio in Des Moines) and had them follow the Audio Research directions to lower the gain to 10db output, which is standard for most preamplifiers. I have included the photos of the option directions from Audio Research, and will ship the two resistors that were removed as part of that process in case the new owner would want to restore the higher gain.
This LS2B MKII R sounds terrific, you can find many reviews of it online. You will not be disappointed with this preamplifier. I am selling it because I upgraded to another Audio Research preamplifier.
It will be shipped in an Audio Research box that is not original to this model/not for this model, but provides secure packaging for shipment.
Shipping cost for CONUS is $60.00
