Having a tube issue with preamp, please do not bid or buy. Pictures updated on 10/10/17. Moved to a room with more light but the Mystere's lacquer finish is highly reflective.
Item was purchase brand new on November 11, 2016 as "open stock" from Upscale Audio.
Item is functionally and cosmetically perfect with the possible exception of the RCA connector wear. I am assuming that the item may have been used at audio shows as there is some wear on the RCA jacks as they appear the be brass. If they were originally gold plated the plating has wore off. This is an assumption as I do not know if they were originally gold plated. Thus the rating of 8/10.
Item comes with manual, power chord, white gloves, 4x Psvane 6SN7 tubes and 1x JJ GZ34/5A4R. Tubes have moderate use estimated at 200-300 hours. I also tried brand new Tung Sol but they made noise when adjusting the stepped attenuator.
