I got this from emjazz a while ago, was only ever really intending to try it out (I have terminal gear curiosity) rather than keeping it. This is the first one ever made. Just got it back last week from Jack Read with all the latest upgrades. It's a great preamp, great clarity but not sterility. The latest upgrades give more gain and low end. In excellent condition. Looking for $575 shipped obo. No trades please.
