This is the LSX2 V2 version of the legendary CF-080 Pre-amp and is a significant step up from the older LS/LSX versions!!! This is truly one of the best pre-amps on the planet...especially in this latest incarnation. This unit is approximately 1.5 years old.
This latest version has the blinking warm-up/operation LED located below the volume control. All internal boards are the latest too.
Comes with a much upgraded Mullard EZ81 Rectifier Tube and Sylvania Gold Brand 5814 Signal Tubes (or we have many others if you wish something different).
Unfortunately, there are two really tiny marks on the faceplate (see pics - below the "Y" in Concert Fidelity and near "Input 4"). For sure they can not be seen from the sitting position (but I must disclose). If it were't for the marks the unit would be a 9/10...however, they are there and that will save the new buyer some money.
If you have ever considered a CF080, this is the one to get! Sonically and ergonomically the best version.
Comes with Facory box, manual, NOS Mullard EZ81 rectifier, matched pair NOS Sylvania 12AU7 (5814), Remote Control, and all factory accessories.
We have been a CF dealer for many years and would be happy to answer your questions about this unit or any other CF gear!
Many thanks for your interest!
