In very nice condition, highly reviewed and sought after. Original box, packing and manual are not included.
"When reviewing a component of the obvious price/performance value of
the XR-2, I always ask myself if this is one that I could live with
over the long haul. In this case the answer is yes. This ingeniously
conceived and executed phono preamplifier would be a strong value at
twice its price. I advise anyone who is looking for a fine phono stage
that won't break the bank to give the Emmeline XR-2 a serious
audition.The XR-2 MC/MM is a true dual high resolution phono stage
pre-amp using four AD797 state of the art audio IC’s. It has a tube-like
warmth and fullness without sacrificing details. The sound staging is
three dimensional and precisely reflects the location of instruments and
their depths." - Enjoy the music.com
All the resistors are of the highest quality film .1% tolerance and
very transparent. All caps are polypropylene and poly carbonate. They
are precisely matched between the left and right channels. The PC board
is a FR4 material which is of highest quality two sided two oz. with
military specs. Ground traces and lanes separate signal lanes and power
lanes from each others. The XR-2 has a high quality micro switch capable
of changing an inputs impedance to match that of the phono cartridge.
47k, 470 ohm, 100 ohm, 80 ohm, 50 ohm, 30 ohm, plus a custom location
for a resistor of choice. The chassis is black anodized aluminum with
custom face plate and red LED.
The power supply is a piece of art by it self. It is housed in a
separate black anodized chassis and connected to the main electronics
with a 5.5 feet low noise shielded cable. It uses the same quality FR4
PC board and utilizes a high quality toroidal transformer with two
independent secondary windings, each has its own separate full wave
bridge rectifier. Every electrolytic cap is smoothed with a
polypropylene cap. The regulation is done with two adjustable regulators
for precise voltages and both of the regulators are protected by diodes
from reversed currents. The output voltages are very smooth and
precise. The XR-2 is always on, so its ready to play at all times. The
warm-up time is 15-30 minutes to play at its best.
