For sale is the Avid Pulsus phono stage. This unit is mint and comes in its factory box which was purchased not long ago from Music Direct (retail $2400). It has great adjustability both in Gain and loading using DIP switches, and enough gain (70db) to run very low output MC cartridges. The unit is dead quiet, the bass is authoritative and punchy, very dynamic with resolving midrange and sweet extended highs. The unit was maintained in a smoke and pet free environment. It is time to let it go as I am seeking to upgrade. Lots of glowing reviews online.
