Bel Canto Design Pre2P 2 Channel Balanced Preamplifier
Often described as one of the quietest, most neutral preamps on the market. At $4490 back in 2004, this product was expensive for the time. This particular unit has the built in phono stage described below. It paired beautifully well with my Halo JC-1's and VPI SuperScoutmaster with a MySonicLabs UltraEminence BE. It ties in very well with a great programmable remote and a home theater bypass which enables it to play front left and right with a home theater set up. Great, great preamp. An excerpt from a review as described by Vade Forrester Soundstage: Conclusion: The Bel Canto Pre2P is a remarkably transparent preamp. It is incredibly quiet, affording the listener abundant real detail. The phono stage is as good as any I have heard, easily bettering my Audio Note An-S3/M2 Phono Signature combination. If you seek a two channel preamp, especially one with a killer phono stage, the Bel Canto Pre2P is an important one to check out. Make sure you email me with questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and put Bel Canto in subject line. Or text a question to 813 245 5930.

Kinergetics KDP-100 Good Condition
I have been selling Audio for over 30 years and I can tell you this is a very good sounding piece. This was built in the early 1990's when processors were starting to be popular! KDP-100 is a digital pre-amp of the Platinum Series as is the KCD-55p 20 bit 8X only the 55Pp is a processor with a volume whereas the KDP-100 is a preamp with digital and analog inputs.The other very important feature of this pre-amp is that it has phase inversion 180 this is so helpful because most if not half of them are out of phase.I would not buy a CD player or any digital device if it did not have this feature!The unit has good quality volume pot. Also I recommend a quality digital cable to connect a CD player! See my other Ad for Acoustic Zen Cable or ask me about othersRated 7 because it has few scratches on the top and small nick on the face place very hard to see.Also I will take a partial trade any analog stuff!Questions or concerns e mail or call 925-918-3714 Bob

Esoteric C-02 Reference-Grade Pre-Amp - New in Open Box
Esoteric C-02 Reference-Grade Pre-Amp - New in Open Box Up for sale is one of the best linestage pre-amplifiers ever made, whether tube or solid-state, for any price. A true reference quality linestage pre-amp. This pre-amp is a beast, it weighs 32 kg / 70 lbs, it is heavier and bigger than most power-amps out there! Build quality is first-rate and reference-quality as befits an Esoteric Master Sound Works product. New list price is USD $24,750.00 Get this reference-level pre-amp at over 60% off! Important note: this is the 220V version of the pre-amp. A step-up transformer is INCLUDED with the pre-amp as well as an original, high-quality Esoteric Schuko power cable so you can use this with regular US 110 V power outlet. 220V provides better electrical stability for better long-term operations, this is why many high-end servers in enterprise data centers use 220V instead of 110V, as well as several hi-end power amps. Power consumption is only 21 Watts. Condition is brand new in open box, never used, only powered on for test and taking pictures. This amp was manufactured in April 2013. I am new on usaudiomart but have been on audiogon for over 10 years with 100% feedback. This pre-amp will be shipped securely in its original padded triple box and will be insured. PM me for any question. FedEx Ground shipping is included for domestic US 48 states at my asking price. Local pick-up in Orlando, FL area for cash payment is available. I will ship to Europe and certain parts of Asia at cost, just ask. ===================================================== Read the awesome review from Soundstage! Ultra here: http://www.soundstageultra.com/index.php/equipment-menu/449-esoteric-master-sound-works-c-02-preamplifier Quote: Comparison I won’t spend too much time comparing Esoteric’s new preamplifier to its less expensive and now retired sibling. But if anyone thinks that the C-02 is only slightly better than the C-03, they have another think coming. The C-02 and C-03 produced soundstages of roughly the same height and width (which is not to say that a larger soundstage would be accurate or desirable). However, the C-02 bettered the C-03 in pretty much every other measure, including vertical spacing, imaging, quietness, transparency, timbral delineation, and realism. I never realized it until I got the C-02 into my system, but through the C-03, Eberhard Wächter’s recitatives had sounded solid and precisely imaged, but a bit veiled and noisy. The electric panning effects in Pink Floyd’s “Welcome to the Machine” were less distinct, with less of their synthesized details displayed. Shirley Horn’s voice in “Too Marvelous for Words” was more coarsely textured. And the sounds of the violins and violas in Beethoven’s Symphony No.1 were relatively undifferentiated. Still, owners of the C-03 need not despair -- that model is still one of the great preamplifiers, and offers a good taste of the C-02’s fast, transparent sound while still sounding romantic and full. Despite the arrival of the C-02, that’s something that’s still exceedingly rare. Conclusion The Esoteric Master Sound Works C-02 is one of the very few preamplifiers that does it all. It has a fast, unveiled, and ultra-realistic sound; it’s full, refined, and romantic in the midrange; and it’s extremely revealing of timbres, even with respect to the most challenging instruments. These are all things I won’t be soon forgetting. For now, Esoteric’s analog engineering prowess is still overshadowed by its legendary digital expertise. However, if you have deep enough pockets, you shouldn’t discount Esoteric’s assertion that the C-02 reaches “the ultimate height in analog audio technologies.” Even among the world’s most accomplished analog components, this Japanese preamplifier is transcendent. ================================= Specifications: Analog audio inputs Connectors RCA x 3 pairs (RCA 2 can be used as an AV pre-input); XLR x 2pairs Input impedance LINE :10kΩ Input sensitvity At rated output : 510 mV; At 800 mV output : 200 mV Maximum input level 12 V Analog audio output Connectors RCA x 2 pairs; XLR x 2 pairs Output impedance RCA 47Ω; XLR 100 Ω Total harmonic distortion 0.0006% (RCA); 0.0004% ( XLR) Frequency response 1Hz - 200 kHz (-3 dB ); 3Hz - 50 kHz (-0.2 dB) Signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) 116 dB (2 V input, A-weight ) Gain +12 dB Rated output 2 V Maximum output level 7.5 V (RCA output, 1kHz, 0.003%); 15V (XLR output, 1kHz, 0.003%) General Power supply AC 230V 50Hz; AC 120V 60Hz; AC 220V 60Hz Power consumption 21 W Extemal dimensios (W x H x D) (including protrusions) 445 x 162 x 457 mm (17 5/8"x 6 1/2"x 18") Weight 32 kg (70 5/8 lb) Included accessories Power cord x 1 / Remote control (RC -1156) x 1 / Batteries for remote control (AA) x 1 Felts x 4 / Owner’s manual x 1 / Warranty card x 1

Chord Electronics Ltd. CPA-8000 Reference Pre - The CPA...
((( Audio Solutions ))) Near mint condition Chord CPA 8000 Reference Preamplifier ...You wont find a more musical pre on the market for the money..! Very little use and the pre is almost 3 years old.. Original box and remote ... Chord Electronics CPA 8000 Reference Pre-Amplifier The CPA 8000 is the ultimate high end reference product and is the perfect partner to the SPM 14000 mono block amplifiers. In the same double height format to match it has all the features of the already advanced CPA 5000 but now includes three pairs of outputs, true dual mono construction with separate power supplies for each channel, and separate left and right frequency EQ adjust. Using two separate ultra high frequency power supplies gives the best possible channel separation and with Chord's latest low noise circuitry the noise floor performance has been improved to beyond -135dB. Each of the power supplies and the sensitive volume, balance and EQ controls is surrounded by solid milled aluminium shielding to prevent RF interference. Extra flexibility is now offered with three pairs of fully balanced XLR or unbalanced RCA phono outputs. Selection can be made manually via the front panel or using the supplied remote control. Every input has six levels of adjustable gain that can be individually selected to prevent large changes in volume when switching between inputs. All settings are stored via the microprocessor even if power is removed.The fully balanced AV Bypass circuitry will allow direct connection to an AV processor at full signal level routing the signal directly from input to output avoiding the volume control. This truly flexible system functions to provide both the purest two channel stereo reproduction then converts for use in a multichannel AV system with a simple press of a switch. A balanced AV monitor is provided check signal integrity or feed to another system. On the front panel are the separate frequency EQ adjust controls for the left and right channels. Both the low and high frequencies can be adjusted to suit the room requirements. Each control rotates a milled aluminium disc with graduated adjustment levels clearly visible through the magnified and illuminated viewing port.

Electrocompaniet EC 4.8 preamp
I've been on a buying spree lately as I'm trying every piece of equipment I can find the time to buy and listen to. This is one of those items. Most of the audio shows that I've been to in the last 10 years or so seem to feature this companies products. I found them to sound better than most. I was not disappointed in the least with the two channel excellence of the 4.8 I believe that amplifiers and preamplifiers should be of the same make and even series. I don't have the budget to buy the amps from Electrocompaniet. That is the main reason for the sale of this preamp. I also want multiple outputs for home theater. You will not be sorry if two channel bliss is what you seek. Read the reviews out there. This competes with most preamps under $10,000.00 The photos are stock as I'm away for the weekend. Mine is stone mint.

Plinius Kaitaki Preamp w/Phono Perfect, World-Class Preamp
Some equipment is just made right. The Plinius Kaitaki is one of those pieces. This is a magnificent world-class preamp. Used for about 1 month. Built-in phono preamp with selectable gain and load. Perfect working condition with no marks or flaws. It doesn’t meet AudioGon’s requirements for a “10” so it gets a solid 9. This is the current US/120VAC model. This preamp is loaded with features: Phono preamp, XLR support for its “CD” input, 4 additional line inputs plus a home theater bypass input. It has both XLR and SE outputs as well as a line-level output. There is a ground-lift switch, trigger inputs and outputs, plus an IR remote input. The unit has fabulous ergonomics: simple one-button selection on the front for input selection and a volume knob. Build quality:; ‘Outstanding’ seems to be over-used, but its outstanding! The solid ~7mm aluminum face is bent into a “U” that wraps around to the sides. It’s a work of art. The blue sub-chassis is just gorgeous. The boards themselves are amazing. If you look at the phono preamp board you’ll notice that all the components (caps) were inserted with the labels facing up in the same orientation. Who does that? People who care about the details. Sound: I’ve been churning my preamp for the better part of a year. The Kaitaki blows away both the venerable Conrad Johnson CT-5 and the Pass XP-20. It has outstanding openness, clarity and accuracy. Beware of preamps that use op-amp gain stages: They generally crush dynamics. Plinius has always used fully discrete circuity and the Kaitaki takes full advantage of this expertise (see photos) Lots of preamps these days use integrated circuit (IC-based) volume controls because they give you cute digital volume displays. They’re also really cheap and easy to implement. I personally haven’t heard one of these I like yet (and I’ve auditioned a lot!) They squeeze the sound though micron-sized transistors and resistors and the sound suffers. The Kaitaki volume control is a motor-driven potentiometer (which, incidentally, is much more expensive to do than an IC volume control). While relay-based stepped attenuators are equal in sound quality, they are a bit slow and awkward. Pots are my favorite. The notch in the volume knob is easily seen from across a room. Here was one of my tests: My dCS Elgar DAC has two outputs. I connected one to the CD input and the other to the ‘theater bypass’ input (using Cardas Clear and Silnote Signature interconnects). The theater bypass literally bypasses all of the preamp: a relay connects the input directly to the output. Using the remote I could then switch the preamp circuitry completely in and out of the system while listening. I couldn’t hear a difference. That may not sound very exciting but trust me: few preamps can pull that off. Especially sandwiched between a dCS DAC stack and Jones PA-M300 monoblocks. Phono stage: My month of listening wasn’t heavy on vinyl. The Kaitaki phono stage is fully discrete and follows in the tradition of the Plinius Jahrra – the phono stage I’ve used for 15 years. The Kaitaki uses an update of that design and it’s a wonderful phono stage. This is no token phono add-on. This is the best they could build. You do have to remove the preamp cover to set the gain to high or low (MC/MM) or to set the cartridge load. I took these photos because I had to set the phono stage back to factory defaults (47kOhm/high-gain). The remote is impressive. Massive. Like a lot of newer equipment, It controls some functions not available on the front panel, including power standby, phase, theater bypass, and mute. Of course it also has input and volume control. Like the main unit it is flawless and has the same, positive ‘click’ action buttons. This unit tied for first place in my ‘churning’, but make no mistake - this is no ‘second-place’ performer. My final choice came down to things like physical size, XLR support, phono support, ergonomics, cost, age (I buy mostly on AG), color, etc. And on ~half of these the Plinius was better. But I’m not going to own two preamps, so one has to go. Reviews: If you look on-line there aren't many reviews of this preamp yet. But you can find many great reviews for its immediate predecessor, the M8. The 6 moons review has interior photos and you can see this is virtually identical to that preamp. Same DNA. Same exceptional performer.Price includes shipping and PayPal. It’s just easier that way. I use FedEx ground. Please make sure your profile has an appropriate personal shipping address. Everything original included: remote, power cord, manual, Plinius double-boxing. This is a fabulous preamp.Actually my second Plinius – the first (a CD-LAD) I owned for over 10 years. I will miss it and you will enjoy it!

Burmester sound system is used in Bugatti Veyron! That says something about Germany's foremost high-end designer Dieter Burmester and his passion for audio. Like most Burmester equipment it is handmade in Germany. This 897 is virtually like new condition. No scratches, dents or even a slightest hint of wear. Very fresh condition.

Regarding Burmester the sound is similar to the top 808 preamp. I dont have the original packing but I will pack it very carefully for safe delivery. The pictures are from the actual item. Housing is silver/chrome version. It is European voltage 220-240V ~ 50Hz. Voltage conversion to 120V ~ 60Hz is very easy (no soldering needed) and can be done for free prior to shipping for US buyer.

A small signal must be carefully amplified without damaging the ephemeral staging and dimensional components of the music.Heard through the Evolution 202, music emanates from an expanse that outlines the recording venue, transporting you to the moment of creation.The Evolution 222 is the perfect companion for the Evolution 402 Amplifier and Evolution 505 Source.Available in silver or black.FEATURES 1.5 MHz open loop bandwidth in a zero feedback, balanced, Krell Current Mode design terminating in Krell CAST.All signal gain is realized in a surface mount topology using proprietary multiple-output current mirrors with nearly 500 times the open loop linearity of other designs. Zero negative feedback is used anywhere in the preamp, nor is it necessary. Open-loop distortion is typically less than 50 parts per million.A complete Evolution (source, preamp, amplifier) system, connected in CAST, reduces the number of voltage gain stages to the minimum, one. The resulting noise floor is approaching the theoretical limit of technology. The volume control is realized with a 16-bit balanced resistor ladder -- bandwidth and transient response of the preamp circuitry are virtually unaffected by the volume setting.150 VA toroidal transformer drives four 6-amp bridge rectifiers and 19,800 microfarads of filter capacitance.Krell designed digital control circuit monitors and optimizes the preamplifier's operating parameters.------------------Product Specs------------------ Inputs 2 pr.

The preamplifier chassis measures 17.3 in. (43.8 cm) wide, 3.8 in. (9.7 cm) high, and 18.3 in. (46.4 cm) deep.The Evolution 222 preamplifier requires at least two inches of clearance on each side, and at least two inches of clearance above the component to provide ade- quate ventilation. Installation inside cabinetry may require additional ventilation. AC Power GuidelinesThe Evolution 222 preamplifier has superb regulation and does not require a dedi- cated AC circuit. Avoid connections through extension cords or multiple AC adapters. High quality 15 amp AC strips are acceptable.------------------Back Panel Inputs------------------ (SECTION FOUR: Anatomy of an Evolution 222 continued) Figure 3 Evolution 222 Back Panel InputsInputs 15 Balanced Inputs: B-1, B-2 16 Single-ended Inputs:S-1,S-2,S-3 17 Tape Input 18 CAST Inputs:C-1,C-2 Outputs 19 Tape Outputs: 20 Main Outputs: Single-ended Main Output Balanced Main Output CAST Outputs Configurations 21 CAN Link In/Out 22 RS-232 Port 23 RC-5 In 24 12VDCIn/Out 25 Phono Power Port 26 IEC Power Cord ReceptacleBack Panel Description See Figure 3 on the previous page The preamplifier back panel provides all input and output connections, remote control inputs and outputs, and the power connection. Back panel features and their descriptions follow. Inputs 15 Balanced Inputs: B-1, B-2 These are balanced analog source inputs with XLR connectors. 16 Single-ended Inputs: S-1, S-2, S-3 These are single-ended analog source inputs with RCA connectors. 17 Tape Input This is a single-ended tape input, for use with a tape source. 18 C-1 and C-2 CAST Inputs These are CAST inputs with 4-pin bayonet connectors, for use with Krell CAST-equipped input devices. Outputs 19 Tape Output This single-ended analog output is used for recording the selected input source. 20 Main Outputs The Evolution 222 is equipped with one single-ended output with RCA con- nectors, one balanced output with XLR connectors, and two CAST preamplifier outputs with 4-pin bayonet connectors, for use with Krell CAST-equipped amplifiers. Configurations 21 CAN Link These RJ-45 link connectors are connected in parallel. They are used to con- nect the Evolution 222 preamplifier to other CAN Link-enabled Krell products.Remote Connections on the Back Panel 22 RS-232 The RS-232 port receives messages from a computer-based control system, providing integrated control of all preamplifier functions. The RS-232 input uses a 9-pin D-subminiature connector. See the Evolution 222 developer's reference, entitled RS-232 Port: Sending Commands and Interpreting Data, for more information. 23 RC-5 In The RC-5 remote connector is used with a third party remote control system that provides RC-5 (IR) data with the carrier intact, via a wired connection. A stereo tip, ring, sleeve 1/8-inch mini connector is used in the following configuration: Tip = RC-5 data, Ring = +5 V, Sleeve = GND. 24 12 VDC In/Out (12 V Trigger) The preamplifier has 2 outputs that send, and one input that receives 12 VDC power on/off (12 V trigger) signals to and from other Krell components and other devices that incorporate a 12 V trigger. This allows you to turn other components on or off, or to and from stand-by, through the remote control. When the Evolution 222 is switched to operational mode and is connected to other components through the 12 V trigger, it sends a signal that will switch other components, allowing whole systems or parts of systems to be easily coordinated. For more information on customizing the 12 V trigger, see Input Trigger, on page 35. Mono 1/8-inch mini connectors are used in the following configuration: Tip = +12 V, Sleeve = GND. Notes When the Evolution 222 is in the operational mode, the 12 V trigger provides 12 Volts of DC output. When the component is in the stand-by mode or off, the DC output is 0 Volts. A minimum of 30 mA is required to operate the 12 V trigger. Consult the owner's reference of the components used in a custom installation to take full advantage of the remote capabilities of the Evolution 222.Phono Stage Connector 25 Phono Power Port This port is used for connecting the preamplifier to a Krell KPE phono stage. Power 26 IEC Power Cord Receptacle The IEC power connector is for use with the provided IEC standard 15 amp AC power cord.
