 What you are looking at is a rare factory upgraded fully balanced, zero negative feedback, remote controlled tube preamplifier.  This is my second preamp from YS Audio.  I started out with the base model and was so impressed I had Nelson Chui build me a modified version with upgraded caps.  

This model sports upgraded solid aluminum feet with rubber ring.  Dampening pads added to top plate, side walls and other flat surfaces as pictured.  Signal caps are Mundorf Silver/Gold/Oil and Audiocap.  HiFi Tuning silver fuse.  I have stock set of signal tubes with zero hours.  Philips ECG 5687wb tubes have about 150 hours on them.  Upgraded JJ 12AU7's have about 300 hours.  Lastly I upgraded driver tubes to highly regarded Holland 7119 tubes - these by far were the best of the upgrades and would never go back to basic 5687's after hearing these (cost me $150 for matched pair) 150 hours on these and they last much longer than standard 5687's.  You get all 12 tubes with purchase. 

I bought, had made special for me June of this year.  I have power cord, remote, manual, original packaging.  I'm planning to go up another level in YS Audio line of preamps, best performance for money I have experienced.  Total out the door price with all upgrades and tubes cost me $1665.  You are buying a barely broken in tube preamp that will outperform or match BAT's, Modwright and ARC LS models. 

Buy with confidence, I'm a regular on Audiogon, have posted and shared my systems on forums.  I get bored easily and change components every few months, always trying to move further up in models.  I have original emails and invoices with Nelson.  This unit has been used with two different Audio Research amplifiers and modified ZU Omen Def speakers.  The zero negative feedback design was not an issue for my 101 db efficient speakers.  

More information;  This is a sleeper product that only a handful of US audio enthusiast know about right now, but there are terrific owner reviews available on the web.
