Linn Kairn preamp w/ phono stage

Reg. Price: $2795
Sale Price: $600

Probably our best-selling preamplifier of all time, Linn’s Kairn preamp delivered terrific sound quality along with a huge set of useful features including multiple analog inputs, an onboard MM and MC phono stage, separate record and listen paths, and a handy remote.  This used Kairn is an earlier unit with the original transformer power supply, which while not quite up to the sonics of later models has proven to be much more reliable.  Tested and working nicely.  Cosmetic blemishes include a smudge on the display window where an IR repeater was stuck on, and some scratches on the case.  Includes remote and power cord. No box or packing but we can ship it safely.


Esoteric UX-1 Limited CD/SACD/DVD player

Reg. Price: $14,100
Sale Price: $1200

Esoteric’s UX-1 Limited was THE reference universal disc player for its time, delivering unmatched audio and video performance from silver discs.  Though it’s not up to date with current video standards and won’t support Blu-ray discs or HDMI, this monster disc player is still superb for CD and SACD.  Made in Japan to perfectionist standards, with a massive metal disc transport, serious power supplies, and beautiful leather-clad remote.  Tested on CD, SACD, and DVD discs and is working fine.  We do have original box and packing so shipping is possible, but would be quite expensive, so local sale preferred.

Reg. Price: $9995
Sale Price: $4200
