Trio Kenwood L-08C New High Speed Control Preamplifier


This legendary and sought after preamplifier has Moving Coil and Moving Magnet inputs with adjustable cartridge loading.  The phonostage MC section has 8 paralleled transistors arranged as 2x4 in differential mode for ultra low noise, high tolerance polystyrene capacitors are use for the equalisation.  This is a statement preamplifier if ever there was one!


You might never see one of these ever again, it is crucially rare and is  switchable 120 - 220V so will work almost anywhere in the World.


There is a very big downside though.  It was shipped from Germany in just a cardboard box and is physically and electrically damaged.  The on/off button is stuck in.  The damped hidden control panel cover jams on the chassis that is slightly bent, and it's marked badly. One channel is occasionally 1dB down but pushing a connector near the volume control rectifies this, so a squirt of Deoxit is required, but to be sure I'll say it is faulty and for spares or repair with no return.


This is a dream preamplifier and deserves to be repaired and put into use.  If it were available new today I estimate the cost would  be about £6,000.


This is heavy, we can ship by Fed Ex anywhere in the world, but this will be expensive.  If you don't like our Fed Ex price you can get your own courier to collect.   I also expect payment within 3 days of winning.


So that’s it, my feedback speaks volumes, and I’m open to anyone coming to look before biding.
