One owner, carefully kept, no blemishes, excellent condition...a super clean sounding preamp with analog inputs for 6 channel output devices. The original remote is not included, but a full function programmed remote is included that works all functions. There is no original box and packing, but it will be professionally packed by an audio shipper.
Excerpts from Home Theater Sound dot com:
"John Stronczer, head engineer at Bel Canto Design, describes the PRe6 multichannel preamplifier as an evolutionary progression of the PRe1, their well-received solid-state stereo preamplifier. However, the PRe6 is more than just eight channels of the PRe1 incorporated into a single chassis.
Multichannel preamps are designed take full advantage of the high-quality analog outputs of DVD-Audio/Video and SACD players. And as others have discovered, they make excellent home-theater components when used with the built-in Dolby Digital and DTS decoders of today’s DVD players."
"At the heart of the PRe6 is a new analog stepped volume attenuator from Burr-Brown. This device has better measured performance than the highly regarded Crystal CS3310 used in many high-end preamplifiers, including the PRe1, according to Bel Canto. Other modern audiophile design features include four-layer circuit boards for optimum routing of signals and sealed gold-plated silver-alloy telecom relays for input switching. The power supplies are highly regulated and isolated, and all of the parts are of very good quality, Bel Canto claims. The PRe6 appears to be designed and built like a high-end stereo preamplifier, and Bel Canto Design considers it their finest preamplifier, whether it is used in a two-channel or multichannel system."
