I am at least the second owner and I believe that there was an original 1st. or third owner back in the years 1982 - 1983. Included in the photos are two ARC Service Invoices that detail all bench work performed by the ARC service division. These documents were provided by the previous owner - a fellow Audiogon Member. Just shy of $950.00 for all work performed by ARC in 2012. SEE THE WORK DESCRIPTION on the hand written invoice for the ARC summation regarding this unit.
My usage of the unit since purchase has been minimal in a secondary system set up. The sound produced by this unit is truly amazing; not like my 5SE but astonishingly close. High - Mid - Low & imaging will not disappoint for it's price and certainly it's age. Due to the vintage and design of this pre amp. one must be patient through it's warm up and then some to hear what it is capable of. The original shipping box and all of the inner shell / packaging material is present for safe shipping. The manual is included also. (Shipping will be higher if sold to AK or HI). Shipping & insurance cost as well as any PayPal fees are not included in the price.
Thank you for your interest.
