Up for sale is an Audio Note M6 ‘Balanced’ Line Preamp. This is the finest preamp that I have owned in the forty years that I have been an audiophile. This preamp has a beauty and delicacy to the sound, with an astounding natural
resolution that only a handful of the very finest preamps have. It has a detailed and powerful bass that impresses me every time I hear it.
I am selling this preamp only because I have ordered the M6 Phono preamp. This is the end of the road for me. Truly beautiful sound. From Audio Note:
Level Four line pre-amplifier, with Audio Note™ 1 watt tantalum resistors, Audio Note™ silver wiring, 5687 line stage with novel power supply design based on the patented M10, 6X5, OB2, ECL82, Black Gate™ WKz filter caps, Audio Note™ in-house designed and wound output transformers with copper primary and an Audio Note™ silver wired secondary on an 0.1 mm Audio Note™ AN-Perma 50 nickel double C-cores.
I have had it fully checked out and serviced by an authorized Audio Note technician at Soundhounds in Victoria, BC.
If you were to buy this new today, here is what it would cost:
$15,950 – in the U.S.
$21,550 – in Canada
£14,669 – including VAT in Europe.
I am asking U.S. $7500.00 for this preamp that is in very good condition.
As I am waiting for my new M6 Phono to be built, I am not interested in any trades. Local pickup is available. Shipping costs will be whatever I am charged, with insurance.
