Probably the last phono preamp you'll ever need, with 5 MC inputs (different factory-set loadings) and 1 MM input. If you need more than 6 inputs, then this isn't for you ;).

Look here to learn more about this and Reinhard's philosophy: https://6moons.com/audioreview_articles/thoress3/

In excellent condition. With the original packaging. Current retail price is EUR 9,300. Looking for around £4000 for it. Location: Leamington Spa (voted happiest place to live in UK!)

Feel free to ask any questions - just PM me. (Further pics on request.)

Cheers.
Mani.

You need to put "For Sale' at the start of your title  otherwise it looks like a discussion thread it will help you sell your gear👍👍

It is in the 'Private Hifi Classifieds' forum! I'm sure people would figure it out eventually...

I just found the original invoice from Thöress. I paid EUR 8450 for it back in May 2015.

And I forgot to mention that it's been sat in its box for pretty much all this time, waiting for me to get around to that 'vinyl digitisation project' that never quite materialised, and that I've now totally abandoned.

I'd put this up against pretty much any phono preamp out there. I've only got one TT/arm left and no longer need multiple inputs.

Going for less than 1/2 retail price. In 'as new' condition' with original packaging.

I can confirm that this is an excellent phono stage. I reviewed one for HiFiCritic a few years back and from memory believe I awarded it 'Audio Excellence'. It is a properly dynamic phono stage with firm grip provided by a stiff solid state power supply that is tempered by the tube output stage. The adjustable equalisation is not merely lipstick on a pig, but actually very useful, enabling *bright* 70s recordings to be tamed and made quite listenable, as well as the different RIAA settings used by studios to be accomodated.

I liked then, and still do now; the sound quality, and the Germanic measurement lab aesthetic of the chassis and labelling too. Kind of funky in a retro-way.
