Thoress Phono Enhancer made in Germany, vacuum tube based design, featuring adjustable RIAA deemphasis curve shaping, this phono stage offers many useful adjustments and multiple inputs with individual flexible resister loading capabilities. In essence, this is a highly regarded, supremely musical phono stage, all internally point-to-point wired with plenty of gain, drive and dynamics and has the ability to cast an enormous sound stage with tremendous air and 3D layering. Vacuum tube compliment: (1) PCC88, (2) 12SN7GT, (2) PC86. This special Thoress phono stage was originally purchased new, is roughly 2.5 years old and being sold on consignment, as our client is currently migrating over to an entirely solid state based system. I was told at purchase that this was the best phono pre you can buy until you get into the 20k range. I believe it. The build quality is superb and the tube upgrades take take it over the top. The current model now retails for $12,450. This is a great opportunity at my asking price of 4,700. Feel free to contact me.
