Build cost me about $900 all said and done.

Two SE inputs, and two SE outputs.

Built by hobbyist Trang Trung in USA, it uses Eichmann and Cardas RCAs, Dueland wiring, and comes with a linear PSU. I will include an Apple remote and some extra power wire you can play around with. Smoked front panels, the LPSU unit has single gold/orange LED when powered on, and the other shows same color LCD screen from Tortuga which displays volume level and other adjustments (i.e. balance, display brightness). Apple remote use is easy, volume up/down, mute, power on off. You can use it to enter the adjustments as well. The unit is a V2, and cannot be further updated. It was sent to back to Morten two years ago when I was in the States to have a calibrated just a preventative maintenance. Unit is well kept in non-smoking home.

Asking $575 net total. Should probably just keep this one on the shelf since it is a top notch pre, but new speakers on the way.
