Aesthetix Calypso with GNSC statement upgrades [Expired]


no longer for sale

I am the second owner of this wonderful pre-amp. I had the preamp modified by Steve at GNSC to the highest level he offered. The pre sounded wonderful before and the mod took the player to a whole new level. The mod is heavily based on the mod for the Rhea phonostage which has a great review from Tone Audio starting on page 61. http://www.tonepublications.com/MAGPDF/TA_008.pdf Here is a list of the mods that were done to this unit by GNSC - Extensive chassis dampening - Dampening of critical integrated circuits - Dampening of power supply capacitors - Critical power supply capacitors replaced with black gates - Interstage capacitors replaced with v-cap teflons - Output caps replaced with dynamicaps - Diodes replaced with stealth rectifiers - AC input power filtering The pre is in very good shape. There is one spot on the front where the lettering is missing as you can see in one of the images. The back panel has a few nicks on it. The unit comes with the stock power cord, remote, manual, and packaging. The pre will be double boxed for shipment. I have perfect feedback on audiogon under the same username there. Give a shout if you have any questions
