Hello All, I have spent the last couple of years perfecting my current system and I am now selling all of my surplus equipment. I was going to have my audio dealer sell all of the equipment for me but they wanted 25% and they wanted me to take pics and ship the items from my location. So here is how I priced these items so it is a win for both of us. I discounted the items 10% from sale prices I could find and then will ship free to the lower 48 and no PayPal fees. So this gives you a 15% reduction from normal selling prices and I will get 10% more than letting the dealer handle this for me.
The VK-52se is in excellent condition and works as new. I bought this new from a dealer and it is still under warranty to me. I have had no issues with this piece. I replaced the tubes because they were getting a lot of hours and I also hooked this up to my existing system and gave the tubes about 35 hours of break in. I am only selling this because I have upgraded to the VK-53se. You will not be disappointed with this preamp, it sounds as good as it looks. Once again I have rated this as 8/10 just in case there is someone who is pickier than I am ! Returns will be accepted for 7 days but only if the equipment is DOA or does not operate as new.
