I've a Vincent SA-T8 tube preamp for sale. Vincent is a German Audiophile company.
This preamp is in excellent condition. I'm the second owner that's why I've rated this as 8, otherwise a solid 9. This is truly an excellent tube preamp.
>This unit has also been signature upgraded by the upgrade company by the original owner. Upgrade Cost: $795. I'll add the upgrade certificate with the package.
>At the asking price, I'll add complete set of NOS tubes. 3 relabeled (mazda, hp ) amperex bugle boy 12Au7, less than 200 hours on them. 4 RCA NOS tubes 12AX7; ~3000 hours on the RCA. I'm also going to throw in couple of extra RCA black plate side getter 12AU7 tubes. The stock tubes that come with are totally new and I'm going to include them too. These tubes cost about $550.

The Absolute Sound magazine honored the SAT-8 with a "Short List" favorite product recommendation in the Preamps Under $2K category in its January 2009 issue, calling it "a bargain in an all-tube preamp."
"Its strong suits are bass precision, spacious soundstaging, speedy transients, pure midrange textures, and rhythmic drive. . . A rare musical blossom at this price point, and an absolute steal considering its twin virtues of crystalline clarity and ample boogie factor."

Even though I've listed paypal only. I'd accept bank checks too but strongly prefer paypal. If you mark paypal as personal transaction that would eliminate the associated fee. Otherwise, please add 3% paypal fee and shipping to the asking price. Email for direct communication: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for looking.
