Best pre I've ever owned and rarely found for sale...from the previous owner:
"Sadly parting with the now unobtanium, Bent Audio AVC-1.
This was one of his final ten units John Chapman at Bent produced and was manufacturer assembled.
It is in near mint condition, functions perfectly and includes his wonderful remote and power supply (for remote) wall wart power supply.
This unit is based on Dave Slagle's Slagleformer Autoformers. It offers 61 steps of volume control (-54 to +7) It can be manually or remote controlled.
Offers six RCA inputs, two RCA outputs, selectable theater bypass, and a display dark setting
Here is the link to the Bent Audio webpage on the kit (this was a manufacturer-assembled unit) http://www.bentaudio.com/stuff/avc-1.html
I have used it with tube and solid state to excellent effect. Here is a link to a great write-up in Positive Feedback http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue77/bent_audio.htm"
****I will only accept cash and local pick up in Los Angeles CA area.****
