This gorgeous sounding Audio Research LS-27 pre has been well cared for, is in extremely good condition inside and out, and is super clean. Operationally and cosmetically excellent with a few barely perceptible blemishes on the front, and slight wear and tear to the finish on the back corners.
Includes remote, manual, power cord, original packaging, and new Sovtek tubes with around 200 hours break in.
