Excellent condition ARC PH3 SE vacuum tube phono stage. Silver face. Sent to ARC for full check up and new tubes. Prior set of tubes will also be included, which were played for 3-4 months.

I recently accumulated quite a number of phono stages and SUT's as I have gotten back into analog in a big way. I have been trying various cartridges with different gain/loads. At this point, I have decided to offer with this great sounding unit for sale, as the 54 db gain of this PH3 SE does not match ideally with my currently chosen LOMC cartridge. This unit is best for HOMC or MM cartridges with 0.75 mv at 5 cm/sec of output or higher, unless you have a line stage with significant additional gain. If this PH3 SE matches your gain needs, it is hard to find a lovelier sounding unit, at any price. Quiet, dynamic, holographic imaging, with excellent detail.

I am asking slightly over the standard blue book price due to the fresh set of ARC-chosen tubes and full check up. The service and tubes alone cost $330. A full set of load resistors from ARC is also included. The 6DJ8 tube set also allows for tube rolling, unlike the newer ARC phono stages, if you are into such pleasures.

For full disclosure, the wire mesh top cover is not original ARC... but it is a fine piece, works fine, screws down in place (if you choose) perfectly and looks just fine.

Original box and packing included, Price is FIRM. If it doesn't sell at this price, I will just keep the unit. Cartridges come and go, truly great sounding, quiet phono stages are keepers :)

Buyer pays shipping and 3.3% for Paypal if that is the chosen form of payment. USA sales only.
