I never thought I would ever sell this but needs must as the roof needs replacing so some sacrifices have to be made. I was thinking of keeping it and living in my car but Mrs Stidge was not keen.
I bought this new from MFA a couple of years ago with Jonathan Billington, MD of MFA, delivering it himself. I traded in my Classic V2 and visited the workshop in Hastings to drop it off. It was amazing to see the transformers being wound by hand and the amount of work that goes into making these incredible passive pre-amps.
There are lots of excellent reviews for these pre-amps:
Mine is silver and is fitted with 2 pairs XLR and 4 pairs RCA for input and 2 pairs of outputs (both XLR and RCA) and 2 ground lift switches. Dimensions are: 97mm height x 250mm wide x 275mm deep. I used it connected directly to my active ATC speakers which is a classic pairing but it will of course work with a power amp and passive speakers. It sounds marvellous, or rather it doesn't actually sound at all but just gets out of the way of the music to allow you to hear all the detail in the recording. The unit is absolutely unmarked. One additional benefit is it is passive so doesn't require a power cable so no more reading those interminable cable threads!
The new price for these is £6120. I am looking for £4000 delivered. It has its own flight case so it will be fine to send although you are very welcome to collect if you fancy a trip to either Tunbridge Wells in Kent or Castleford in West Yorkshire as I am up there a weekend or two a month.
Any questions please let me know. Thanks for reading
