This phono stage is in perfect condition. Purchased from an Acoustic Signature dealer as a customer trade in. When I purchased this 4 months ago, the dealer told me that it was likely about 2 years old. I never confirmed this but it was a trustable dealer so I am assuming not too much off. It is in perfect shape cosmetically and functionally. It can drive any cartridge MC or MM. See the attached picture for more detail. The screws on the sides have big heads so you do not need to use any tool to remove the top cover to change jumper positions. Very convenient. I barely used it by the way.
