I'm thinning out my stereo units, since I will be moving in the next year. This Classic Valve Design phono preamp, is a high end unit that uses six 6922/ 6DJ8 tubes and has a separate outboard power supply. Sound out of this unit is amazing. Good stereo sound with lots of clarity and good dynamics for a tube unit. Tubes installed are Russian 6N23P tubes. You can tube roll this unit if you want to tailor your sound to your liking. This preamp is custom hand built of limited quantities. The power supply section is very heavy. I had two external rca outputs installed in this unit for my taping use. RCA outputs only on this unit. Comes with switchable MM and MC stages. MC stage is optional on this pre and I had it installed. There are many scrape marks on the case of this unit. I do not think they will buff out. See pictures. This preamp only has about 15 hours use on the unit, so its low hours. Tubes included in the sale. Must drive to Chilliwack to hear this unit. The cost of this pre brand new is $2400 Canadian with taxes on top making it $2700. I bought my own tubes so the price was lower initially, until you factor in the tube cost afterwards. The tubes in this unit are a step above the tubes sold with this preamp when ordered. This preamp is currently at the stereo shop where it was sold, so you can stop by the store to have a listen to it. Shop info or phone number available upon request.
