Audio Research PH-3 Phono Pre-Amplifier in very good condition. Couple minor scratches near screw holes, otherwise fantastic! Personally, I feel 8/10 is being conservative but I want the owner to be extremely happy with this phono pre purchase.
This truly is an amazing sounding phono preamp with a beautiful single-ended gain stage.
Will ship with both original boxes for extreme protection. I also have the original owners manual, and resistors to support MC and MM cartridges. Default loading is set at the factor to 47K ohms and 90 pF. Included resistors support 30, 60, 100, 200, or 800 ohm moving-coil cartridges.
A question came in regarding how to change the cartridge loading on the PH-3. You have to remove the bottom cover (see newly uploaded image) and install the [included] resistors to each channel. Here is a link to the Audio Research Manual: http://www.audioresearch.com/ContentsFiles/PH3%20manual.pdf
Note: I cannot accept a return if the loading has been changed as it requires soldering.
For whatever reason I was not permitting a "Buy it Now" option. So I have dropped the price for this weekend to $900 and enabled the buy-it-now option. Thanks for looking, happy shopping!
