    Price drop to $1,800 shipped. I forgot about the PSA trade in thing that they offer.

    Also worth mentioning is that I've never registered these with PS Audio and the warranty coverage should be transferable to the new owner. These were purchased in January of this year.

    Wondering if I ran my Yamaha wxc-50 into the SGC via optical ( for TIDAL HIFI )
    How it would sound vs a Cambridge 851n using its tidal app ? - also how the SGC would compare to the 851n both being used as a preamp ?
    Tidal is basically the only thing I use .....

    I’ve been happy with the Yamaha thus far .... I use it as a preamp streaming tidal hifi .... always looking for better tho .....

    Anyone have any thoughts ?

    At this time I am choosing to only sell these pieces as a pair.

    I would be willing to break them up and sell individually only if I have confirmed/paid buyers for both pieces.

    However, these are really meant to be used together and preferably with balanced XLRs.

    Taking these off the market for now. I have someone interested locally who would like to demo them in his system before making a decision. Thanks.

    Can any other owners comment on whether it's possible to connect to input 1's balanced and unbalanced at the same time? I don't want to disconnect one to use the other. I'd obviously only use one at a time. @joecoulson, Drew says you may have some experience with this.

    Thanks.

    Yes you can. They will actually play simultaneously

    That would mean the output stages of two devices are connected together. That would be a bad thing, would it not? I need 4 inputs, otherwise I wouldn't consider it.

    Sucks to be broke. Amazing seller and a stellar deal!

    For sure. I just went through my head trying to think of what I could sell to buy this Amp. Or offer for trade but only came up with a 3 legged cat and a Adcom amp. Fat chance I know! Lol

    Oh... ok. Nevermind. I had some speakers and cash I was going to offer for trade but, I'm In Florida.

    I grew up in Barstow CA and Las Vegas NV. I sure miss In-N-Out! And CA weather!

    GLWTS Anyways. I was stoked to see you buy that set up as I wanted the same at one point.

    What a great price.

    Thanks! I agree, especially because I ship via USPS 2day air which means you get your gear super fast! :)

    Anyone on the Class D fence who hasn't yet taken the dive, this S300 would be a good first introduction to the tech!

    And if it doesn't sell here to a Polkie I'll probably just keep it, as it pairs up awesomely with my Backert Labs Rhumba 1.2 Extreme.
