The Audible Illusions Modulus series have been called the best value in all of audio and it's hard to argue with that claim! The pre-amps have been the recipient of so many awards and rave reviews that it's hard to keep count. On everyone's short list, the Modulus pre-amp is an incredible performer at any price and an amazing value from MKoM.

* What is a Factory Reconditioned Modulus? Audible Illusions allows current owners to trade in their current pre-amp for the latest model. Of the units sent for trade, the very best are selected for the refurbishment program. These units are carefully inspected, checked, measured and adjusted. Any suspect parts are replaced and matched to original factory specifications. The units are cleaned and preened to look virtually new.

Units are finished with Brushed Aluminum (Black) Face Plate & Control Knobs. Silver face plates are available but in very limited quantity.

After they have met the high standards of Audible Illusions, a fresh set of tubes is installed and they are packaged in a new box with new manual and accessories. Note: This unit has been fitted with NOS 6H23N-EB tubes – these are the best tubes you can use in a Modulus pre-amp. They sell for $389 CAD for the set!

* What makes a Factory Reconditioned unit such a great value? Unlike other used units on the market, you have the benefit of knowing that your unit has been fully evaluated and certified by Audible Illusions. The designer himself, Art Ferris, personally checks EVERY factory reconditioned unit. You'll be comfortable knowing that your pre-amp is operating at peak performance and is backed by a factory warranty. With a Factory Refurbished unit, you know what you are buying!

* VERY limited availability. We only get a handful of these units each year and they go quickly. People recognize the value in having a factory certified pre-amp with warranty.
