This sale is for a perfectly performing NuForce P-8 Preamp, power cord, remote control and two optional colored knobs (Black + Silver). The color of the Pre-Amp is GOLD. This item is not offered with a warranty. The cosmetic condition is very good, a 9 out of 10 to give you an understanding. A 10 means brand new still in the box.
The NuForce P8 is a solid-state preamp that offers certain tube-like virtues. The P8’s sonic signature centers around traditional solid-state clarity, definition, tonal balance, and control, but with a twist. Unlike solid-state designs marred by a cold, sterile, or hyper-analytical sound, the P8 instead exhibits an extremely subtle and engaging touch of warmth, which affects the preamp’s presentation from top to bottom, but is most noticeable through the bass and lower midrange. This quality of warmth evolves and thus imparting some of the refined harmonic complexity associated with tube preamplifiers. At the same time, the P8 maintains the sort of sharp focus and taut control that are the hallmarks of good solid-state designs. I should also mention that the P8 proved as quiet as the proverbial tomb, offering a noticeably lower noise floor than comparably priced models.

I just purchased a NuForce DAC because I am only using a music server for my system and it is a better idea is use a DAC then a Pre-Amp. Thus the reason I will no longer need this Pre-Amp. I have the original box, black bags and packaging that came with the Pre-Amp. I never used the remote since I have a Logitech programmable remote and that was the remote I used. In other words the original remote was only used once to program my master remote. Here is a review on what a great Pre-Amp this P-8is, http://www.tnt-audio.com/ampli/nuforce_p8_e.html It will be double boxed for a safer shipment.
