Offered for sale is the rare to find on Audiogon, highly regarded solid state multi channel analog preamplifier.
Considered by many to be the best sounding analog multi-channel pre-amplifier for SACD, Bluray and DVD-Audio universal players like the Oppo 95/105, Marantz, Denon and other players.
Has Balanced inputs as well as 2X7.1 channel RCA inputs (you could actually connect one Oppo BDP95/105 and use the other as a by-pass for a 7.1 channel Home Theater processor! Has 7.1 channel balanced outputs as well as RCA ouputs.
I have tried several multi channel preamplifiers in my pursuit for the highest resolution multi channel system that can do justice for SACDs.
No processor will ever do justice to sacds as they will never be as transparent as a true analog multichannel preamp.
You will never know how much of the fidelity of the original signal is lost until you hear it through this unit.
Goose bump inducing sonics!
Started with Sony TAP-9000ES and moved on to Parasound P7, Audio Research MP-1 (high resolution, but noisy) and finally ended up with this outstanding unit.
Had the highest rating from all of the top HIFI magazine reviewers such as Stereophile, 6Moons, Home theater sound and many audiophiles around the world.
The balanced connections are recommended for best performance.
It is truly an exceptional and flexible player that allows the highest fidelity from all sources.
Please take a look at the specs...the output levels at 20V RMS in balanced mode are among the highest in the industry to bring out the smallest nuances!
In my opinion as well as Stereophile's Kal Rubinson's reviews (as well as several other online forum members) it is one of the best ...for 2 channel or 7.1 channel.
This is the Gen II version with several significant internal hardware/component updates for the highest resolution possible............please google and read the glorious reviews from 6moons, stereophile and others
Drove my all electrostatic 7.1 channel surround music/movies system to it's full glory.....
Selling only due to downsizing.
In great condition, flawless sonics and in near perfect cosmetic condition.
Comes with manual, original box packaging, original power cord and the very solid premium factory brushed aluminum remote.
The unit is flawless functionally and cosmetically.
Some markings on the remote shows some fade but doesn't affect usability.
It will be shipped in original packaging.
Buy with confidence from a long term audiogoner with perfect feedback.
