This is the best built line stage I've seen. This is the Deluxe version, a significant upgrade from the well regarded basic Line Drive. I'm not sure there are any other passives built to this standard.
From the solid case and controls, to the Penny&Giles volume control (~$400), great connectors, Wonderwire, Noble balance control, Star grounding scheme, this is Steve MCormack's statement in a passive line stage.
Stereophile ranked it Class A:http://www.stereophile.com/content/mod-squad-line-drive-passive-preamplifier-page-2#vCdjCbFrQRByC538.97
This is in very nice condition- perfect front and rear, only a few small scratches on top and a few on the bottom. Rated a 7, but it is more like an 8 by my standards.
Unfortunately I can't use it in my systems.
I'll pay fedex ground shipping in the cont. US at my price.
Thanks for having a look.
