The Whest PS.30R is a British built phono preamp. It's highly regarded and has a very balanced sound leaning towards tubes but also not solid state sounding. It really reminds us of the balance of a PASS phono stage. It is very revealing so you'll want to pair it with good speakers and a capable pre/ amplifier. If you're looking for a holographic and spacious presentation, you should hear this phono preamp.
This is a clean trade-in and appears to be kept in very nice condition. Overall its clean with no odors (Smoke or pets). The only blemish we could find in the unique aluminum case was a small dark spot in the center for the faceplate. You can't feel it but its slightly visible.
“This phonostage is quite the fastest, most dynamic unit, with the highest resolution one can buy! ” Holger Barske
“…the Whest PS.30R easily plays at the same level as the best phonoamps in the world” Thomas Broszio
"Already being hailed as one of the very best phonostages ever, the PS.30R is taking the world by storm. This is what the design criterion was for the design engineering team at Whest Audio. The only way to achieve this type of performance was to scale down a true reference, so the MC REF V was used as the platform."
