  • Prototype Preamp for sale

    Hey guys, I have a couple of prototype preamps that feature tube outputs using the E88CC dual triode tube, one on each channel.

    The casework is really nice, comes with working remote control, and enough room inside to add a 250W class D Audio amplifier and power supply. Could be easily modified to accept the additional circuitry and there's enough room on the back panel to add a couple sets of quality binding posts.

    The preamp is fully functional as is and was to be sold for $1800 retail. They'd make a great project box for converting to an integrated amp or simply used as a functioning preamp with remote control.

    It has two outputs, 4 inputs, all single ended.

    Asking $800 each.

    Wow, that is a beautiful unit. I'm not in the market for a 2 channel preamp at the moment but best of luck with the sale!

      Oh jeez... physical dimensions? Do you have a pic of the remote? ...and were those boards made to spec or sourced from available prefabs (I can't keep up with what's available from who anymore)?

      Am I correct to assume the tubes have a fairly long life span in this application?

      That is a nice looking piece of gear.
      Thanks,
      Aaron

        Hi Aaron,

        The blue preamp board was made to spec by the OEM. But the power supply and Class D amp were sourced from ClassDAudio.com I could even include them for a bump in the price.

        In this application, yes, those tubes should last years. Best part is that there are plenty of sources for different versions of that tube so you can do all the tube rolling you care to.

        Dimensions (W x D x H) : 430 mm x 300 mm x 120 mm
        Black Anodized Aluminum chassis.

        Here's the remote.

            It's a big chunk of milled aluminum . . . very nice remote housing.
