For sale is a stellar example of Counterpoint's impressive SA-5000 full-function preamp. This is one of two I own, the other one being the silver-faced version with full Alta Vista mods.
This particular 5000 just came back from a full service by my tech. Along with taking the preamp completely apart to clean evening, he performed the following major repairs:
• Replaced Q501, 502, 503 transistors
• Replaced D504 zener
• Replaced all electrolytic caps on board
• Replaced all ten 10 uF 50V Elnas
• Cleaned and applied new silicone grease to all six T0-5 can IC's
• Installed front panel ground mod from service bulletin
• Replaced 50K Noble volume control pot with loudness tap
• Install new caps in outboard power supply
• Installed new filament regulator
• Replaced three tantalums in power supply with organic polymer caps
• Calibrated preamp for new tubes
The 5000 has brand new 6DJ8 Sylvanias and all tubes will come with Amplitrex AT1000 printouts.
Sonically, this is one of the best-sounding 5000's you're likely to find. The fact that it's just undergone a complete service is an added bonus.
Cosmetically, the preamp is in stellar condition, save for a minor scratch on the top of the faceplate above the impedance selector knob. All switches work cleanly, all inputs are as-new. Overall, it's a wonderful piece.
Although I have the original box and packing material, rest assured that it will be double boxed for safe shipping. And yes, I DO have the three chassis locking screws!
Shipping will be a flat $75 to anywhere in the Lower-48. The final shipping box will be huge and definitely oversized for FedEx. And it will be insured for high value.
Please note that shipping is restricted to addresses within the Continental United States - sorry, but no exceptions.
