Audio Research's SP-17 was engineered to deliver ARC stellar performance in a more affordable preamp. The SP-17 is completely single ended with 5 inputs and 3 sets of outputs. It also includes a home theater bypass for use in multi-channel systems.
Internally you'll find high quality JFET input stages. The tubes have been upgraded to 6H30's. The 17 uses the same voltage regulator as its big (and much more expensive) brother. The volume is now the same 103 step unit as well.
The SP-17 is pure class A throughout for quiet and lifelike presentation. Bandwidth has been improved as has the input voltage tolerance and output impedance. Its just quieter and better in many ways.
The SP-17 represents a performance benchmark that's really hard to beat with any preamp under $5000.
This is a nice clean and well cared for unit and includes the remote control, manual and original box.
