Sonic Frontiers Line 3 - Bargain! [Expired]


no longer for sale

Selling a Sonic Frontiers Line 3 - straight off, this unit is not in perfect condition, and price is set accordingly. The unit was sold to me as perfect, but what I received was not. Nonetheless, I've used it for years without problem. I do not have the original boxes as they were again promised but not sent by earlier seller. I will pack and ship appropriately. I am selling now because I'm relocating to Brazil and must downsize - the preamp is priced to sell. Only other Line 3 on Audiogon right now is twice the price! For those not familiar, this is a 2-chassis unit with interconnecting cable. First chassis is transformers and regulated power supply; 2nd is the preamp stage. The Line 3 is the best preamp Sonic Frontiers produced. I'll list the issues with the unit. All but one are minor. The biggest issue is that the volume knob doesn't work (I use the awesome remote without issue). So the 6/10 rating assigned for age, the volume control, and some minor cosmetic issues: scratch on the remote, a loose strain relief for the interconnect cable, and age has caused the plastic web around the interconnecting cable to degrade (cable itself is just fine). See photos attached. All these issues except the plastic web degrading have been there for several years under use in a smoke-free, pet-free environment. The remote functions perfectly (obviously needed to control volume), and the Sonic Frontiers remote is one of the best you'll find. You will never press a button and have no response. There are no scratches on either chassis and the appearance of everything is perfect aside from the scratch on the remote control. If you're looking for sound far in excess of what you pay, this is Stereophile Class A sound at an incredible price.
