Tube pre on ebay

Post by angelod307 » Tue Feb 24, 2015 2:22 pm

I saw a tube pre that I am going after . Just a notice that it's there, and I want it. Let me know your number if bidding, and If it's more than mine, I will not bid. Carry on.

I did, and now want it back so I will try for this one. I also might go for the two 300's and another set of crms. If the price is low that is.

It appears that some folks lust mightily for the Sunfire tube pre!

:shock:
I was there "At the Fest!" Hope you were too!

For less than that, I got my Pass Labs X1 pre. I won't be looking for anything else.

Tube rolling or not, I had one of these pre amps, and it was nice, but it was not even in the same ballpark as the Pass.
