For sale is an amazing component. A reference level preamp and redbook cd player in one chassis. This unit has been in my personal reference system for seven years, and has been pampered. All sides are in excellent condition, and the whole of it looks as if new from the listening position. For anyone unfamiliar, this unit is based on the award-winning Nu-Vista line circuitry, utilizing the same DAC, circuitry, and components with some enhancements due to containing the transport and DAC within the same chassis and no need for interconnects. Just a straight path to the preamp section. The chassis also employs a copper inner structure to reduce resonance and offer a dead silent and distortion free background.
As a preamp alone, it is well worth the price. Professional reviewers lauded this piece for it's tube-like spaciousness and airy presentation, while maintaining very fine detail retrieval, sharp imaging, and excellent frequency extension. It is truly reference quality.
Add to that preamp the venerable Nu-Vista DAC and rock solid transport, and you have an unbelievable deal. But it's not through. There is a digital monitor loop that allows you to digitally convert your reels and vinyl to your digital data recorder. This would typically require a whole other ADC device. This functionality is built in and it is top quality.
Included in this sale is the original shipping box, remote, and printed manual.
Additionally, I will be including an upgraded 1m braided power cable.
Also, I will split shipping with the buyer.
