Audio Research PH 3 SE phono tube phono pre amp. Great condition, some small marks from moving around. Selling due to cross country move and need to pare down some items.
The higher-cost PH3 Special Edition is identical in circuit design to the standard PH3 phono preamplifier, with the exception that more than 100 different parts upgrades have been made to the SE version, including costly Infinicaps in both audio circuits and power supply regulators, high-performance soft-recovery rectifiers, Holco resistors in key locations, gold tube sockets, proprietary Audio Research damping rings, extended chassis damping, and more. The sonic improvements are significant in every respect, yielding better sound stage focus, more musical bloom and richness, greater dynamic expression and more impact and control at the frequency extremes.
Very good condition including manual and resistors for all types of moving coil cartridges. ARC tubes with less than 300 hours use to date.
Shipped in original ARC double box with manual and resistors and ARC power cord.
