FOR SALE: Audio Research Reference 5se Preamplifier - updated valves, 800 hrs, free shiping and no paypal fees
Audio Research Reference 5 se Preamp SILVER (US$7,722)
The preamplifier is in good condition and perfect working order. It was fully serviced with all tubes replaced and tested in August 2017. The tubes have since had 800 hours and are good for more than 5000 hours.
First released in 2012 the preamplifier is recognised as one of the best. See this outstanding review by Brian Damkroger in Sterophile in Nov 2012 https://www.stereophile.com/content/audio-research-reference-5-se-line-preamplifier.
The Audio Research Reference 5 SE's lineage and US$12,995 price led me to expect a lot from it, and it didn't disappoint. I can sum up my impressions of it in one word: "Wow!"
I have recently upgraded my system and keen to sell. As such I am prepared to send anywhere in the World with free shipping. I will also cover all Paypal fees. Only costs to you will be the local country tax and customs import duties and fees. FYI, according to Paypal, NZ$11,000 is currently equivalent to US$7,722
