Hey polkies,

Selling a Lounge Audio LCR MKIII moving magnet phono amplifier. This is a very well reviewed unit and I’m sure most will be familiar with it here. I bought it new in March. It has performed well for me and my previous TT but I’ve moved up to a MC cart on my new table and bought a Rega Fono MC.

Shipping will be done via USPS in the med flat rate box as pictured. This is exactly how it was packaged from Lounge. It is in like new shape. I am fanatical about taking care of my gear and you won’t find a single scratch/ding/dent etc.

New this will cost you 320 shipped from Lounge. I am asking for 200+ shipping polkie price. Payment via Friends and Family PayPal otherwise add pp fees

    Nice price and opportunity for a nice phono pre.
    Sketchy Craig recommended this to me, and I like it.

    Thanks gents! This is a fantastic phono pre and a stupid value at 200 bucks. If someone happens to want this and the Solo I’m selling I’ll take a few bucks off of both

    There is no better MM phono preamp under $500. One of my top ten audio pieces from my time with ToneAudio at any price!

    This is seriously tempting -- I've read nothing but wonderful things about these, and by all accounts these are a bargain (even) at full price.

    For anyone who's interested in this, there's a good, interesting thread including "in production" photos of one of these at https://hifihaven.org/index.php?threads/lounge-audio-lcr-iii-phono-preamp-build-and-review-thread-the-doorway-giant-killer.3430/

    The Lounge arrived this afternoon. As expected, looks like it's brand new.

    Thanks Zach!

    It's a good one, sl. I traded emails with its owner/inventor, a really nice and accessible guy. Would have bought one had it taken MC carts also. He did say he's been ratcheting up the gain on this, current model is 42dB, IIRC. And, they make an add-on for MC, I think.

    Everything I read about them was super positive. Spin away!

    I looked at doing the Copla with the lounge but decided to get the Fono instead. Figure sometimes simplicity beats out adding another component that might not match well
