Here you will find a mint condition Conrad Johnson ACT-2 preamplifier with all original boxes, packaging, manual, test sheets and billet aluminum remote control that came with the unit as shipped from the factory. I purchased this unit new in 2007 and have logged under 400 hours on it since then. The unit is in perfect condition, there are no scuffs, scrapes or scratches on this unit. It looks indistinguishable from a new unit if you could still buy one today. These sold for $13,000.00 when last available so mine is an absolute bargain at $4,550.00. This is truly one of the best preamplifiers ever made and the reviews are there to prove it. This completely beat out my Audio Research Ref 3 that sounded cold and analytical in comparison, my CAT Ultimate MkII that lacked inner body and detail compared to it and my VTL 6.5 that was the closest in terms of sound quality but the ACT-2 clearly had a deeper and wider soundstage. You will not find a better preamplifier for the money... Period! Please see my feedback and trust that you are dealing with a fussy seller who takes exceptional care of his equipment. I am downsizing my system so please see my other listings for mint condition equipment. Buyer responsible for Paypal/Audiogon fees and actual shipping/insurance from 98281. Thank you for looking and don't hesitate to ask any questions.
