Service History: Original owner was unbelievably dedicated about making sure the unit remained perfect - covering it when not in use, allowing it to warm for 15 minutes before being played, periodically cleaning internally with a special air brush that contained no environmental pollutants etc. He estimated 300 hours.
Other Notes: "The Boulder 865 is big and, at $12,000, not inexpensive. But it's made in America, using sound engineering practices and a humongous amount of hand labor. Just reading the parts list of a Boulder component would wear down some audio CEOs.
Best of all, the 865 does exactly what Jeff Nelson wanted it to do: It mates a superb solid-state preamplifier to a superb solid-state power amplifier, without compromise. It neither adds distortion or noise to the audio signal, nor does it neglect any part of the frequency response—at least, not that I could detect.
It's simple, and it's darn near perfect." - Stereophile
