If you are reading this, you probably know the HK Citation I is widely considered one of the finest tube pre-amps, prized for its accuracy.

This pre-amplifier is unique for several reasons: First, it can play back any record properly by virtue of its 28 combinations of roll-off and equalization settings. Second, it uses feedback loops around each amplification stage for nearly immeasurable distortion and phase shift. Third, and crucially, its frequency response is super-wide. This preamp is flat from 5Hz to 80kHz for unconstrained, clean playback.

This preamplifier represents the culmination of Hegeman's "wide bandwidth approach" to audio design, the principle that served as the foundation for all his late work: the KT-550 amplifier, Citation I and IV pre-amps, and Citation II and V amplifiers. It is among the most accurate tube amplifiers ever made.

Amplifier is in good condition except some scratches on the top centre (see pictures for details). Preamp was tested and sound very good. Prefer local pickup. Price is firm. Please email for any questions.
