Icon Audio PS3 MkII Signature Upgrade [Expired]
For sale is a high performing, award-winning, all tube phone preamplifier. I am the only owner, and it is cosmetically and operationally flawless. The unit was inspected and upgraded by Audioarcam to their custom Signature Edition. The audible upgrades consist of upgraded Mundorf (silver/gold in oil) capacitors, David Shaw upgraded CV181 tube, premium Genalex Gold Lion ECC88 (6922) tubes, and reversible conversion from MC/MM cartridge input to dual MC inputs. Since it has <100 hrs of use, the unit is still under warranty and operationally not fully broken in. Even at this early time in the prepre amplifier’s life — especially for break-in of the high end tubes and capacitors — the sound is rich, expressive, and emotionally engaging. As is my practice, the unit was retested by the importer (Audioarcam) to reassure the buyer.
The two piece unit uses a large power transformer and a EZ80 valve rectifier followed by two large chokes for very smooth power. This is regulated by the excellent EL84 valve controlled by a 12AX7 for the very accurate smooth voltage necessary for true high end performance. Strongly positive 3rd party and customer reviews are assessable at https://www.audiophilia.com/reviews/2020/11/30/icon-audio-ps-3-phono-stage and in Client testimonials: www.audioarcan.com.
The original prices are ICON AUDIO PS3MKII MM/MC Standard -$ 3795 - PS3 MKII MM/MC Signature $4,495. The purchase of my unit will include several spare EC88 tubes.
I am parting with my unit as a step in the upgrade process for my front end to be driven by a Studer reel to reel. I’ve several cartridges and a dual tonearm turntable. So I need a 4-input phono stage.
