I am the original owner and will cover paypal fees.  For sale is the Vinnie Rossi LIO configured as an integrated amp or a pre-amp.  DAC, phono stage, and headphone amp modules are not included.  There are three analogue inputs for your own external DAC or phono stage, two RCA variable outputs, and one RCA fixed output.  The volume control is an autoformer based volume control with a tube stage.  Two stock JJ E88CC tubes are included.  I went to NOS 7308 tubes right away, so the JJ tubes have very low hours.  Accepted tubes are 6922/E88CC family.  This volume control has 63 steps and gain of about 7 dB.  In my experience, the AVC volume control is a very good match as a pre-amp to a high gain amp and for low level listening.  This unit includes silent switching and a class AB MOSFET amp, 25 wpc @ 8ohms/45 wpc at 4 ohms.  The LIO base unit with the inputs and the AVC tube stage was purchased in 2017 and I added the MOSFET amp in 2018.  Total retail was $6,380.   Original box, remote control, power adapter, power cord, and stock JJ tubes are included.  The manual is a PDF which I will email to the buyer as well as provide a print out of the Rev D version.  Vinnie Rossi warranty is not transferrable.  No service record with this unit.


Rated 8 for age and use.  There is a very small hairline scratch on the top at the tip of the Vinnie Rossi logo.  Very hard to see unless up close and looking at the right angle.


The LIO is discontinued but his website has contact information in case you are interested in more information on the LIO.

From the LIO manual: “Your LIO contains a patent-pending, ultracapacitor-based power supply that isolates all audio circuitry from the AC mains power. You do not need expensive power filters, power cords, or conditioners to achieve the ultimate in musical resolution. LIO’s internal power supply employs a clever use of ultracapacitor banks in place of conventional AC power or batteries. While one bank of ultracapacitors is feeding pure and isolated DC current to the audio circuits, the other bank is charging. The audio circuitry is NEVER connected to the charging ultracapacitor bank and is isolated from the AC mains. This approach provides dramatic performance and durability advantages over every other power supply technology available - whether AC or battery based!”
