The case has not been cracked. If you look at the second photo, you will see a tape on the right-hand side, which reads "WARRANTY VOID IF BROKEN." It also has a date on it: probably January 2009. My guess is that this is the manufacturing date. Based upon this, it is reasonable to suggest that this unit has never been opened or modified.
This is a MicroGroove+X. No reserve auction with free shipping in CONUS. Sales not restricted to USA, but actual shipping will be added to final, successful bid, if outside of CONUS. Customs declaration for actual sales price only: do not even bother to ask for any other declared value. Payment by PayPal only. Shipment to verified PayPal address only, with signature required. No there is no other payment option.
On the second photo, you can see the model number and the serial number, in case you want to check its vintage with the manufacturer. Rated 8/10 because I am the second owner.
I have the one-page owner's manual which depicts how to set the unit for different cartridges.
From the Tom Evans website:
In "The MicroGroove+", the proprietary discreet Lithos regulator is included to greatly improve the quality, transient response time, and noise figures of the voltage rails supplying the whole board. This brings the benefit of CD-like dynamic range, neutrality, resolution and the ability to clearly define the edges of notes and the spaces between. This provides the listener with a far more accurate and dimensional representation of the original performance.
From some random posting:
The "X" version is identical to the original Microgroove but offers 5 loading options on the back panel for greater flexibility in your choice of phono cartridges.
My own words:
