I have an excellent example of the Audio Research Reference 5 preamp for sale. Black face-plate, and a relatively new set of tubes from ARC (76 hours, as shown in the photo).

Also, at my asking price, I will throw in an excellent 10 foot 20A Tara Labs Apollo power cord ($449 value) that takes this preamp to a whole new level.

This preamp sounds fabulous, very revealing and transparent, yet always satisfyingly musical.
