SAS audio preamps are one of the slightly hidden but great bargains of the audio world. Designed and handcrafted in central Illinois, they are all now out of production, this 10A being the next to last model of preamps built. The last one, the 11A, offered a variable gain. The 10A is entirely neutral, extremely quick, quite transparent, and very dynamic. Constructed of premium parts, lead to lead wired where possible. It is about as close to the proverbial straight wire with gain that is achievable. This unit has 3 inputs only: CD, tuner, aux, and has two outputs. Read the full description here:
When I bought this unit, inadequate packing and rough shipping resulted in damage to the ground connection, chipped a tube, and broken anchors of the circuit board. The designer and manufacturer, Steve Sammet, restored it to complete functional condition and included two new tubes with dampers. I had this preamp connected to a Decware Torii Mk II amp with terrific results--the glowing mids, clean highs, clear, controlled bass, and holographic imaging of top notch amplification. Selling only because this unit is a line stage only, so I moved to another tube preamp with a phono section. Function is 10/10, and cosmetically 7/10 because of a couple bumps visible in the photos. Mr. Sammet also supplied a user’s manual.
Paypal accepted, but buyer pays the fee. I’ll take a check (cashier or personal), but a personal check will require you to wait for it to clear. Buyer pays shipping, but I will insist on insurance.
