Considered by many to be one of the finest Solid State preamplifiers ever made. Rich, full bodied tone with superb, nuanced detail. Extremely wide, and even frequency response. This unit is in very good condition. No scratches on the face plate, and the top has the expected swirl marks that black plexiglass would be prone to. I'm sure it could be polished to new condition.
The big news is that in addition to the legendary performance in stock form, this particular unit has black gate caps in critical places and has WBT RCA connectors. Also has the better Pulse 2 power supply (has the 2 piece power supply that has been upgraded). Lightly used; 2 pre outs--good for subs.

Here is what reviewer Jeff Day had to say about this preamp: "Whether Lithos 7 or not, even without the Pulse power supply, the Vibe is one impressive sounding preamplifier. It is extended at the frequency extremes, extremely detailed all through its range, smooth and tonally natural sounding, with great macro- and microdynamics and able to reveal everything in its rhythmic complexity. **A fully broken-in Vibe sounds like what you would expect from the best vacuum tube preamplifier you've ever heard except for one thing - there's no tubes inside it and it sounds better than any valve preamplifier I've ever heard - by a lot.**"
