Reference grade Canary tube preamplifier. This is the 2 box version of the Canary 4 box $30,000 preamplifier and it sounds about the same. Canary is not well known in the US but it is one of the best audio brands and it is highly respected in Asia and the UK (even though it is made in the USA).
Their components are extremely well designed using high quality parts. No disappointing almost empty cases here. This preamp must be experienced! Shockingly good sound quality. This is a demo unit with just a few hours on it. Mint condition. A true reference. A better preamp here than just about anything out there.
