A much as I hate to part with it, I am selling my Counterpoint tube pre-amp. Years ago after they were forced into bankruptcy, I had Michael Eiliott upgrade the power supply. Just this upgrade made a rather significant difference in the sound. I have not replaced the tubes in awhile so that will have to be done. You can select tube to your liking (i.e tubes that have more highs etc). The last time I replace them it was only about $90 to replace them all however that was a while ago. I am not going to go into all the accolades this pre-amp has received over the years but for those who know Counterpoint know they made quality products. And yes I still have the original box and owners manual. There are some slight signs of wear but no scratches or dings. BTW, the power supply upgrade cost me somewhere around $600 so the asking price is extremely fair.
