***SPECIAL PRICING*** For your consideration is the legendary Audible Illusions Modulus 3B Full-Function Stereo Preamplifier complete with the optional Gold Phono Boards for use with Low Output Moving Coil Phono Cartridges.
We have two units available - one finished in Brushed Aluminum (Silver) and the other Black face plate.
Both units are in Pristine condition with less than 25 hours of use.
Thirty years ago Audible Illusions began production of the first Modulus pre-amplifier, a component that set new standards for sonic performance and reliability. To date over 20,000 Modulus pre-amplifiers have been manufactured with over 150 excellent product reviews from audio critics around the world.
Adhering to AI's circuit design philosophy that “simpler is better” and based on the proven superiority of single-ended, triode-tube designs, the engineers have continuously refined the pre-amp. To list all the innovations brought forth by our designs would be difficult. The elimination of cathode followers, buffers, negative feedback, paralleling tube output stages, designing new Teflon film capacitors and exploring better mechanical interfaces are but a few innovations that has made Audible Illusions a pioneer in modern-day tube technology.
Compared to previous generations, the new M3B adds a host of features and refinements. Circuit boards have been redesigned to further simplify the signal path, improve switching and reduce vibration. This latest design utilizes special direct relay switching resulting in improved definition.
Today, the M3B is one of the few full-function pre-amplifiers made. For vinyl record and CD lovers alike this pre-amp offers unparalleled musical performance. It is the finest pre-amplifier we have ever made and continues to be the benchmark by which many others are compared.
