This is a stunning sounding Tube Preamplifier in excellent condition with original
factory box and packing.
You will have a difficult time finding another Pre-Amp at this selling point that would
even be close to the Performance that this piece offers !
This piece is in excellent condition and has been gone over by our technician , and is in
perfect, fully functional order. The Battery has been tested as well and has a long operating life ahead of it. This unit is shipping with the original tubes which are in fine operating order as well as a New Quad of Hand Selected Sovtek 6H30 Tubes by Upscale Audio.

Harry Pearson (former editor of The Absolute Sound Magazine) says it all: 

"The LS-1 may be the most nearly flawless piece of audio equipment in our present-day reference systems. It is devoid of the sonic signatures and colorations of all the other line stage devices I have ever tested. It is, essentially, the least colored, or, read that as, the most transparent piece of electronic gear in our present-day chain of reference gear."

The tube gain stage now sports paralleled 6H30 tubes. They are still tied to a flexible dead-quiet stepped attenuator for the darkest possible “background”.

The power for the audio circuit is provided by batteries, but new to this Lithio Series LS-1 the supply is now LOW VOLTAGE and DUAL MONO … +/- 40 Volts to be precise. The linearity and resolution has been markedly improved and your precious audio signal IS STILL isolated from the AC mains. Tube biasing continues to be handled by our unique UltraBias™ battery bias system.

And we strongly recommend you head over to avshowroom.com and check out Peter Breuninger's multiple video reviews on this LS-1. It will give you the full story on this mighty preamp.

The LS1 is a two box design with charger and supply separated from the all important main unit by a detachable umbilical cord. The main unit houses all tube circuits and the batteries. All panels on the unit save the top and bottom clamshell are made from stress relieved 6061 aircraft aluminum. The front panel is two piece affair comprised of a chrome front bar and handles mounted to a grained and anodized back plate. Manual switches and a remote control (volume/mute/input select/on-off) make up the user interface. The back panel includes an array or single ended and XLR inputs and outputs.

Questions for the seller
Hi, thanks for your reply. I did what you said and looks like there are some small marks on the faceplate, small nicks on the top edge of the faceplate! Is that true? Best, CW.
Im not seeing much of anything. The faceplate is partially chrome which shows marks easy. I would say that the condition is excellent.
Hi, are there any scratches, nicks or dings anywhere on both units? Thanks in advance, CW.
This unit is in excellent condition. Both pieces. You should be able to make photos larger to see. Thanks Mark
