A brand new Dared MC-7P preamp (US limited Edition):World best full function pure-tube-based (7 tubes) preamp (line stage + phono stage) per $ you can buy ---- repeat again: 7 tubes + 4 gold tube capsules + two separated transformers.The four 18k gold-plated solid brass tube capsules (7 oz weight each) cost more than the price I asked, since the current gold traded price reached over $1400 per oz. Buy it now before too later!Sealed in the original box. This preamp was specially made for US market, with three line-stage inputs and an MM phono input, two outputs, soft starter, etc., come with a wooden remote control.It meant to be one of the best preamps (>$2000 out there). The tube covers (shielders) are coated with 18K gold (since all signal tubes are shielded, the preamp is very quiet -- one of the quietest MM phono preamps). The PCB is planted with 18K gold too (no oxide issue here, best contact and connection). All signal wires are pure silver. The circuit design is very complex (Three tubes are used in power supply section in the circuit), Dared engineers and audiophiles worked together to collect best designs available and optimized this one with state-art technologies by computer programs. Here is, you simply cannot get better one with this price, period.It uses 7 tubes and has two huge separate (yes separate--- only Dared design this way. Simply the best) power transformers: one for high DC volt and one for low volt of tube heaters and others. The capacitors use Audiophile grade and the key resistors use NOS AB and Vishay non-inductive. The tubes come with the amp are Chinese stock Ruby tubes. This preamp will bless ones who know what is the value of this preamp offers.
