This unit has connections for both MM and MC cartridges via RCA connections, as well as adjustable resistance and capacitance loading, so it's as versatile as any phono stage out there. That said, the real magic of this unit happens when you connect an MC cartridge via balanced connections from a tonearm. If the buyer of this unit requires assistance with balanced connections from their turntable to this unit, I'm be happy to help with advice, soldering assistance, or even custom cables (the buyer would need to pay for parts). The owner's manual for this unit explains in detail how to achieve balanced wiring for most turntables.
This unit works perfectly, and I've tried every feature and configuration possible. Condition wise, this unit shows normal wear from use; the only mark I've noticed is a nick on the top right edge which I've highlighted in a photo. I've taped a printed label to the top panel which helps identify the settings on the back, which could easily be removed.
There was a small sheet of plastic glued to the underside of the top cover, which has come loose. I'm sure the plastic piece could be glued back in place, but it gets in the way since the top cover slides into the side panels, so I never put it back on. The plastic is included, and is shown in one of the photos.
When the original version of the 2ci was released, it listed for $1400 USD, however the price increased shortly afterwards. This is the MKII version which features an improved power supply, as well as the ability to bypass the output coupling caps.
Current retail on this model is $1999 EURO / $2950 CAD, so my price is FAIR AND FIRM. EMT preferred, PayPal accepted from CAM members in good standing if they cover the 3% fee. Shipping can be calculated using the functionality in this website above.
The unit will ship in the original box. Included with the sale is a generic power cord, an original brochure, and printed copies of the manual and settings.
