I found myself in a position without a preamp recently.
It happens in this hobby often.
Especially with champagne taste and beer budget.
I immediately put out a wanted ad for a budget pre and called alot of B and M shops.
Scoured nearby thrift stores.
Wrote a thread asking help from the community which i got in abundance.
Then as though a door had opened i received a reply from fellow member Audiobasic2000.
He was courteous and politely asked if i was interested in his pre that he also took the time and effort to send photos of.
We made arrangements to meet and after picking up my wife after work went to him.
He asked if i needed a demo and i declined saying i trusted his good judgement.
We did the money/gear exchange and then he handed me over fresh biscottis and told me they were for my wife!
I was floored! I mean talk about graciousness.
Anyway we drove home with a very good feeling about him and his gift.
Upon getting home i couldn't hook the pre up fast enough and low and behold it fit in perfectly and sounded wonderful.
So many kudos and thanks to Cam member Audiobasic2000.
