Audio Research Reference Phono 2 SE [Expired]


no longer for sale

I'm selling my Audio Research Reference Phono 2SE, in very good condition and less than 1800 total hours use.  With 74 dB selectable gain (balanced output, 68 dB gain for single ended output), selectable input impedance, selectable equalization curves (RIAA, Columbia and Decca), support for two turntable or two tonearm inputs, and mono switch, you have plenty of options for a wide variety of cartridges, both MM and MC.  This is a fantastic phono stage, and received a wonderful review from Jonathan Valin at The Absolute Sound when it was released:

As you can see from the photos, there is a small scratch on the lower side of one of the handles.  Other than that it is in excellent cosmetic condition. I have the original shipping box, remote and owner's manual.  Buyer pays for shipping, and I recommend including insurance for the shipment.
(I will be traveling between Dec. 26th and Dec. 31st, so if this unit is purchased between Christmas and New Year I won't be able to ship until Jan. 2nd)
