**I recently had knee replacement surgery, so I am temporarily closing this listing.** ***Asking price dropped to $400.*** Audio Refinement Pre-5: This is a 6 channel analog preamplifier, purchased about 5 years ago. It is really an excellent 2 channel linestage, with the added benefit of a 6 channel input and output. Here are links to the manual and Stereophile review (scroll down). This preamp is very transparent. My home is child, pet and smoke free and I'm rating it as 8/10, due to age. My unit is black, photos are available on request. If audio performance, whether 2 channel or multi-channel, is your priority this is an excellent option. Here is a post I wrote when I first got it ( Post) and a review (Review) Includes the remote and OBM. $450 $400+ shipping & insurance from 94536. I prefer Paypal and the fee is included in the price. Local pick-up is also available.
