I have some mixed feelings in selling this wonderful sounding Sutherland. I've upgraded to a piece costing in excess of twice as much. The Sutherland would be a perfect upgrade to an entry level preamp. The internet reviews are positive and plentiful. I can only add that it provides a very balanced and dead quite presentation. No hum. No RF. I am the original owner of 5 years. Price is fair. Included is additional gain boards which will give you more opportunity for ideal cartridge matching.($50.00 new and no longer available) Add 3.5% for PayPal.
