LS27 Balanced Vacuum Tube Line Preamplifier in excellent condition. Purchased from a dealer last year and only has 1171 hours on the tubes, which typically last 4000 hours. Unit is in near mint condition both in appearance and performance. The LS27 is directly based upon the REF 5 line stage and is superior to the REF 3 in virtually every way. Here's what Audio Research Corp. had to say about it:
"The LS27 sounds very much like a REF5 on a slightly smaller scale, with an organic, lifelike musicality. Like its big brother, the LS27 combines great resolving power with a tonal richness, purity and naturalness that is immediately involving. The grain structure is superfine and electronic artifacts have been banished. Bass impact and control are also superb, and we believe that the LS27 surpasses the performance of the REF3 in virtually every way, making it a stunning value."
I am including two upgrades that together cost over $300 and noticeably improved the already great sound of the LS27. One is the Audioquest 6ft NRG power cord and the other is the latest top-of-the-line Synergistic Orange Quantum mains fuse.
Will ship in the original factory Audio Research box and packaging with the remote control, AQ power cord, Synergistic Fuse, factory tubes, and a copy of the manual.
