Constellation Inspiration 1.0 Preamp
Award winning Constellation Inspiration 1.0 Preamp. 2015 Absolute Sound Golden ear award. Purchased for a second system, but combining 2 systems into one, so no need for this preamp. Less than 3 months old, perfect condition. Have rated excellent but NO transferrable warranty - built like a tank, and Constellation doesn't appear to have any quality control issues. Although it has RCA and XLR inputs and outputs, XLR much better, as it is a fully balanced design. I would suggest purchase only for use in a balanced system. Pictures to follow tonight. I will only accept PayPal but will incur the fee myself for its use (3%)

In terms of ease of use and system adaptability, it’s second to none. It’s probably the most user-friendly high-performance preamp I’ve ever had in my system. If you value that, you’ll love the No.320S -- but you pay for that performance. It’s not for me to decide if you pay too dearly for it or not; that’s a personal decision. However, just as is the case with a Ferrari, the concept of value in a product such as this is not the same as the concept of a bargain. There’s a pride of ownership inherent in having a product such as the No.320S, and if that has no appeal for you, then neither will the preamp. Having used the No.320S, I completely understand how seductive that pride is, even as I acknowledge that I can’t pay the price -- not from personal choice, but more like career choice. If your occupation affords you the luxury to consider a preamplifier as exalted as the Mark Levinson No.320S, however, consider it a prime candidate. If I had to choose between a pile of money and this preamplifier, I know which way I’d go. And it wouldn’t be for the Benjamins.

Often overlooked, the preamplifier is a critical component in the signal chain. 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.

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.

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.

Ayre Acoustics KXR Reference Pre-amp
NO REASONABLE OFFER WILL BE REFUSED.Specifications Description: Solid-state, line-level preamplifier with remote control. Inputs: 4 single-ended (RCA), 4 balanced (XLR). Outputs: 2 balanced (XLR), 2 balanced tape. Input impedance: 2M ohms balanced (1M ohm/signal phase), 1M ohm single-ended. Gain: variable. Frequency range: DC–250kHz. Output impedance: 300 ohms balanced, 150 ohms single-ended. Power consumption: 36W, 65W maximum (when volume control operating). Dimensions: 17.25" (438mm) W by 3.75" (95mm) H by 11.75" (29.2mm) D. Weight: 40 lbs (18.2kg). FROM STEREOPHILE REVIEW: "An "extreme degree of madness" is a very fine description of how Ayre has approached the design of the KX-R. I seriously doubt that any single technology is responsible for the preamplifier's exemplary performance. The VGT isn't possible without an absence of feedback or the linearity that EquiLock brings to the gain transistors. Then there are the "little" touches—that extravagant display, or milling the chassis out of solid aluminum stock to create perfectly isolated pockets for each section—and so on, down to the tiniest detail. That level of fanaticism has its price. Sigh. I suspect there's not going to be a huge amount of trickle-down with the KX-R. In Boulder, it seems, you go large or you go home. But just as perfection has its price, it also grants, umm, perfection—or about as close to it as I've heard from a preamplifier to date. This irritates the heck out of me—I've taken it as a tenet of faith that line-level preamplifiers logically ought to have the least effect on a system's sound of any component in the chain. I hate it when an ugly reality collides with a beautiful theory. In my life, three much-hyped experiences have actually lived up to all the hoopla: trekking into Machu Picchu on a misty morning, climbing the Great Wall of China on a brisk December afternoon, and auditioning the Ayre KX-R. If it's not the eighth wonder of the modern world, I say demand a recount." GOOGLE FOR THE MANY MORE POSITIVE REVIEWS. NOW YOU CAN OWN THIS PIECE OF LEGEND FOR A FRACTION OF THE PRICE.

Krell KCT Bal Cast Ref Pre Amp !
Krell KCT Cast Pre Amplifier: In excellent condition and please note we have some Cast cables available separately.Also listed for sale separately is the matching Krell FPB 300CX Amplifier.Uses XLR / Balanced or CAST cables and is a Classic and desirable USA made Reference Pre Amplifier.Serial # 13103030613 comes with factory box, heavy milled aluminum remote & manual. Audio Video Revolution said in part:FeaturesThe Krell KCT is the first preamplifier to incorporate Krell Tunnel technology, which is a circuit design that Krell claims is the most efficient signal transmission from input of the preamplifier to its output. The circuit topology shelters the audio signal from voltage interference and provides a current domain conduit for internal signal transmission in the same way that a tunnel protects what is inside while maintaining a safe passage from entry to exit. It also includes Krell CAST (Current Audio Signal Transmission) technology, proprietary technology for connecting analog components, which Krell claims provides the most accurate signal transfer from one component to another. The Krell KCT is the first Krell preamplifier to incorporate two-zone capability. It also allows for the independent source selection for the second zone and volume control for the second zone. The menu lets you name each input, select volume trim levels and balance levels for each input. The remote control is a serious chunk of metal. It lacks learning capability and backlighting, which would have rendered this remote more effective, but its clearly marked display gives it a nice feel, and in a pinch, you could use it as a weapon to protect yourself.ConclusionKrell built its reputation with big, powerful amplifiers with massive amounts of power reserves, tremendous transient response and bulletproof build quality, but one of their best-kept secrets is the Krell KCT preamplifier. As the result of the development of Krell’s best amplifier, the Master Reference Amplifier, the Krell KCT preamplifier defines the term “reference-quality.” Not only is it full-featured and easy to set up, the Krell CAST system also provides significant improvements in all performance areas, including dynamic range, transient impact, width and depth of soundstage and improved tonal quality. At $8,500, reference quality doesn’t come cheap, but believe it or not, the Krell KCT is equally priced or cheaper than other preamplifiers of its caliber. Whether listening to the rocking sound of Sting or the soulful sound of Barry White, the Krell KCT preamplifier delivered some of the most open, effortless, musically honest sound my system has produced. With insanely over-engineered build quality, a full-featured, state-of-the-art industrial design and functionality, the Krell KCT is a solid buy and a welcome addition to any over-the-top stereo music system. <: ====================== :> It is best to call David and to visit my new web site @ www.weinhartdesign.com and CALL with questions in Los Angeles Showroom from 11-4PM @ 310-472-8880 or on my cell after hours and weekends from 10-10 @ 310-927-2260 or e-mail me directly at David@weinhartdesign.com Weinhart Design has lots of other items new and used and if you’re in Los Angeles or visiting please accept my invitation to experience our World Class Audio Showroom (BY APPOINTMENT) and please visit our web site @ www.weinhartdesign.com We are always interested in purchasing quality Audio and Video items, CD & LP collections and most quality trades are welcomed.

Revelation Audio Labs CryoSilver Reference umbilical po...
All cables individually hand crafted in the United States. Attention all Boulder 2010 preamplifier owners. Of course you may be aware that the stock umbilical cables that are supplied with your Boulder preamp are, with all due respect, mediocre at best, and may be THE weakest links in your music chain. If you were to take a peak inside you would see very ordinary, inexpensive stranded copper insulated wire. Upgrade from that stock umbilical set and finally unleash the full performance your Boulder 2010 preamplifier combo is capable of, and that you paid hard-earned top dollar for! If you unwittingly allow your stock umbilicals to remain in place, you shall never realize the astonishing sonic potential you are completely missing, but that is so simply within your reach. Our CryoSilver Reference™ umbilical power cable set is phenomenal, and is in use in fine audiophile systems by music lovers worldwide. By no means are these ordinary cables. These are precision musical instruments, crafted by hand by their very designer, Bradley Vojtech. Not a product of factory mass production, each cable is more akin to a work of art. Our work in producing superior high end audio umbilical power cables full time for over 15 years has rendered this as the present height of achievement and world class state of the art. Be aware. Virtually each and every high priced, 'high end' audio cable is derived from off-the-shelf wires, made from inferior metals, extruded in poor insulators, which are the products of machines which are designed to run wire and cable by the kilometer. This very inexpensive wire comes off a gigantic roll from mass manufacturers that make the most common, ordinary wire. The exterior of the cable is dressed up, jewelry-like connectors are usually installed, and there you have your typical, so-called 'high end audio cable'. Mass produced, packaged, marketed and advertised to project the illusion of high quality exquisiteness. This is the general wire and cable industry infiltrating into the special audiophile cable market. The basic difference between the off-the-shelf cable made by those huge corporations and most high-end music cables boils down to only one thing...the label. The gospel truth is most high end audio cables are not handmade with exacting attention to detail by the hands of an artist who has a passion for music. Not so at Revelation Audio Labs! Each and every one of our cables is passionately handcrafted, starting with a single bare conductor, and building upon that. Ours are not cables that are run through machines ordained to spew out vast abundance of commodity. Ours are literally by every sense of the term "made from scratch". Not to belabor you here, as we encourage you to study our web site Technical Design page for a full thesis on our design technologies - but as a brief synopsis, this cable set features: • We start with bare single crystal five-nines (5N) ultra-pure solid core CryoSilver™ conductors – deep cryogenically treated in our exclusive vacuum cryogenic process. Silver is the most electrically conductive of all the elements, and our silver is not your father’s silver. The raw, uninsulated wire used is made by a U.S. company that specializes in precision silver wiring technology primarily for advanced aerospace and medical imaging industries • Big Air™ dielectrics – the air envelope of each discreet conductor is greatly oversized in diameter relative to the conductor diameter within it • NOS U.S. manufactured transparent PTFE Teflon isolator tubes – hermetically sealed to form the air dielectrics. This system provides an air dielectric that is unaffected by ambient atmospheric conditions • Progressive Hand Wrap™ discreet solid shields for each conductor pole, isolating each conductor/dielectric sub-assembly from all others within the cable array, to eliminate EM effects, cross talk, and eddy currents • Triple-layer solid and helically-woven U.S. made military specification stranded outer shieldings • All shieldings drained to the source ends only (to carry absorbed internal and external EMI/RFI noise harmlessly away from the music) • All highest quality genuine Neutrik connectors. Feature silver contacts for seamless metallurgic compatibility and synergy with our conductor material. Male shell is rugged non-magnetic stainless steel. Female shell with circumferential ground spring provides excellent RF-protection for superior EMI rejection • Conduits feature our Ceramic MicroSphere™ technology for absorption and dissipation of vibrations, resonances and microphonics, both internal to the cable and external, mechanical and air bourne, as well as for the control of EM energy • Finally the conduit is covered externally with our new Conductive Carbon Infused Composite (CCIC) jacket. This advanced technology material provides superior EMI/RFI/EMF shielding of the cable. The negative affects that static electrical fields and charges have on audio cables is well documented. In addition to augmented shielding, crucially the Conductive Carbon jacket provides ESD (Electro Static Discharge) protection as it dissipates static fields and charges, also eliminating static electrical charges from accumulating in the first place, as their presence robs performance as it does with standard cable insulation. The material absorbs and dissipates static electricity charge build-ups, which occur naturally on common non-conductive materials. It is typical for these charge levels to be in the thousands of volts. All areas of audio performance are enhanced by eliminating static electrical fields and charges from the surfaces of cables. Virtually all other audio cables suffer from the negative sonic effects of stray fields upon the cable • Cables are fully conditioned on our audiodharma Cable Cooker and connector contacts are treated with Walker Audio E-SST Extreme Super Silver Treatment contact enhancer prior to shipment The above Boulder 2010 preamplifier umbilical cable set includes the following three cables: (one) 0.75-meter, 5-pole (two) 0.75-meter, 4-pole SPECIAL DISCOUNT PRICE FOR AUDIOGON MEMBERS ONLY The regular cost of the four-cable set is $2,899 (nearly $5,000 if you were to purchase each of these cables from us separately). However, as a member of AudiogoN you may have a set for the special discounted price of only $1,999 – a savings of $900. Please consider the average price-per-cable on the set and further realize the value this kit represents. As with all of our cables, we offer a 30 day risk-free audition period. Use them for a full 30 days, if you are not pleased, you may return them for a refund. However, I am pleased to inform you that 100% of our customers who have ordered the Boulder 2010 preamplifier umbilical power cables are absolutely stunned and thrilled with how they optimize the performance of the Boulder 2010 power supply / preamp combo, finally enabling the full sonic potential of the preamplifier and power supply kit to be realized. The cable set is available for immediate shipment. If your installation requires longer lengths, simply let us know and we will send you the respective PayPal invoice. Keep this in mind. We are uniquely positioned to custom-build any cable to accommodate your requirements and/or specifications, utilizing our highly reviewed technologies—such as to substitute for an inferior “stock” cable. You will literally be amazed at the performance enhancement such an upgrade will make. Every customer has stated it is the most cost-effective improvement they had ever made to their system, surpassing an equipment replacement upgrade! We would also be delighted to “hot rod” any of our cable designs to your specifications. Most other high-end audio cable companies will not bother with producing a type of cable if they cannot sell at least a hundred of them, and will not even bother with making you a custom one-off cable. Our designs are in use in fine audio studios and other professional applications. In fact, did you know that our digital cables are actually in use in-flight by NASA? TERMS: We pay the cost of shipping worldwide. We prefer PayPal, but will only accept a check or postal money order from U.S. buyer, or only a postal money order from a Canadian buyer. We offer a 6-month no-interest financing program. Revelation Audio Labs does not play the game of offering various models, with their respective price points, of a type of cable for a prospective application. This is because each of our cables is simply the very best that it can possibly be, period, and comparable to the very finest cables available, period. Yet, our prices are very competitive, because our factory-direct sales eliminate inevitable distributor mark-up. We sell directly to the end user, to save you money, but our cables are also proudly carried by the insistence of these fine high end audio dealers: High End Cable (United Kingdom) True Audiophile (Portland, OR) Affordable Audio (Playa del Rey, CA) Audio Extreme (Hong Kong) Igal Sabo High End (Israel) ES Audio (South Korea) Celebrating our sixteenth year of selling our cables on AudiogoN! View our hundreds of great buyer feedbacks dating back to early in the year 2000. What other cable maker selling on AudiogoN can make that claim? We are very proud of our success on AudiogoN, and for all the many people it has enabled us to meet and serve. Thank you for your support. You are most important to us. Without you, we could not do what we do - to be deeply involved in fine music and the beauty it brings to life, bringing you closer to the music you love. I look forward to hearing from you very soon, and to sending you your new cable set. Thank you again!!!

FIRST WATT / PASS LABS B-4 Active two-way stereo crosso...
Reno Hi Fi has a HUGE inventory of New, Demo and Used Pass Labs and First Watt gear all with 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed and ten-day in-home demo on EVERYTHING in inventory. Phone: 775-829-7333.Introducing the Brand New model B-4 active two-way analog crossover with about 400 Million possible settings! The B-4 is a tremendous value for high performance and flexibility with easy adjustment and is unique in several ways:First, it uses only direct-coupled matched discrete complementary Jfets (the now unavailable Toshiba 2SK170 and 2SJ74) in unity-gain buffer circuits without feedback. These buffers allow accurate interface between a very wide range of impedances in the filter components. They are adjusted for zero DC offset and do not require coupling capacitors. The filter resistors are high quality 1% Vishay commercial metal film types, and the filter capacitors are Wima polypropylene film types.Second, the B4 has a fantastic range and variety of filter values and characteristics. Each of the four filters offers 1, 2, 3 or 4 “poles” for each filter, corresponding to 6, 12, 18 or 24 dB/octave slopes. Each of these filter poles is independently adjustable within each filter, allowing wide customization of the character of the filter. Each pole is adjustable from 25 to 6275 Hz in 25 Hz increments, which is 255 settings per Pole, and the possible number of settings for the four poles of each filter is something like 400 million. With a few simple switches, the B-4 can accommodate “Sallen Key” values or “Linkwitz-Riley” values. All settings are available without a soldering iron or buying additional components. The owner’s manual for the B-4 is posted on www.firstwatt.com. More pictures and special offers are on www.renohifi.com. The B-4’s input impedance is 10K ohms, which will work well with solid state preamps and not with most tube preamps. There was a "B-4" released years ago-- today we have an All-New B-4. This ad is for a NEW First Watt B-4 with full three year transferable warranty and Satisfaction is Always Guaranteed from Reno Hi Fi! Includes all factory accessories, owner’s manual, factory AC cord and new factory boxing. The supplied B-4 power supply has an IEC plug, is auto-sensing, and will work on all standard line voltages worldwide.
