This VTL phono preamplifier is in like-new condition. I am selling it only because I purchased an Audio Research Ref 2 SE phono preamp. This VTL had all Audio Research Reference components downstream, with Wilson Audio Sophia 2 speakers, and was great sounding. See the reviews posted on the VTL website. The $1,100 price includes double box shipping via UPS in the continental US. It lists for $2,500 and is priced at a substantial discount, so I would not be open to an offer of less than the $1,100.
